I know we moan and groan about Tomlin at times (at least I do ) but the players have a different take on Mike:


Tomlin according to Sports Illustrated, polls favorably among his peers. In a survey of almost 300 players, Tomlin finished second only to the Jets' Rex Ryan regarding the coach for which NFL players would most like to suit up. Tomlin garnered 12 percent of 279 votes compared to 21 percent for Ryan.>>>HERE<<< (http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/steelers/s_710714.html)

He made changes and it helped this team win!!

Actually if you go and watch the Gameday exclusive on Steelers.com, he gets a little fired up. He yells something about officiating won't decide the game in a defensive huddle.

If someone gets mad all the time it starts to mean less and less... It's pro football, the players know when they do something wrong and all Tomlin has to do is give em an angry look.

People were throwing him under the bus last week after a bad game against the Pats. Tomlin is a great coach and I won't be convinced otherwise.

You don't want a coach who never shows emotion. Period.

No, but he shows the right kind of emotion when needed.
Flipping out and going crazy mad is never needed. You have to have some control or you'll never get your point across.

Really? The only time I've ever seen him showing emotion is when things are going well.

He's not a Bill Cowher mannered type of guy. He's not going to yell, spit, and scream in players faces when things go bad or they screw up. That's not his thing. He has his own way to deal with situations (good or bad) and probably won't change much, it's who he is. And yes he does show emotion to the players, maybe not how some people may want, but watch any number of Mic'd up or behind the scenes exclusives and he is able to rally and motivate players regardless if they are doing good or if they screwed up.

totally agree, Each coach has his own way of getting his point across. Alot of coaches have not shown a lot of emotion ,ranting and raving does not always produce winning.Examples;Tom Landry,Bud Grant,and Chuck Noll.

I could listen to Tomlin read a phone book - he may not spit in your face like Cowher, but the guy oozes of intensity.....

Chuck Noll and Tom Landry come to mind when discussing stoic coaches who were successful. Maybe some are too young to remember, but back in the day coaches didn't act like Black Friday shoppers.

As long as Tomlin keeps Pittsburgh playing at a high level, I really don't care how he expresses himself. Honestly, the Cowher spitting and Gruden facial contortions get old really quick.
