here's an article to soothe the simple minds here lol

i guess the gazette better stop with their articles and make ones that don't scare the **** out of ppl that don't have to much common sense lol

Mike Tomlin, a disciple of Tony Dungy's "Tampa 2" defense and a fast riser in the Steelers' coaching search, said all the right things following his second interview for Bill Cowher's vacancy.

Tomlin sounded like he'd be perfectly comfortable incorporating the style he learned in five seasons as defensive backs coach with the Buccaneers and applied in his first year as Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator with the Steelers' 3-4 defensive principles.

"I believe that part of coaching is being able to do what your guys do and do well,'' said Tomlin, who met with Steelers bosses for about 3 1/2 hours Tuesday at the team's South Side practice facility. "You have to be flexible, and I've always taken that approach.''

It was Tomlin's second interview with the Steelers, the first in the second round of interviews with the team's three finalists. Today, the team will meet again with in-house candidate Russ Grimm, an offensive line/assistant head coach under Bill Cowher.

i would post the rest but some might read to deep into it and have a panic attack lol

We already reat that yesterday man :lol: We know he's flexible, but he also stated in his press conference that he keeps his roots in his defense and brought that from Tampa to Minnesota. He's open to flexibility in some things but in others he's not so who the hell knows anymore just pick some body alredy !
