Just saw it at the bottom of the screen on ESPN a few minutes ago that Chris Mortensen was reporting that Dick Lebeau and Tomlin have agreed to keep him as the defensive coordinator of the Steelers. If this is true this is absolutely great news. Cant wait to see Big Mike's Press Conference here in a few minutes get started. Its almost as exciting as waiting for a playoff game to start in my opinion.

That is great news :banana: !! Personally, I don't think they need drastic changes, especially not on defense. LeBeau is an awesome DC!! Hopefully between the two of them, they can do something about their pass defense. Also, I hope Tomlin will stick to the running game mentality. :helmet:

He said he's a run the ball first and stop the run first, a smash mouth mentality so we're ok there on offense.

He's open to changes and blending of the 34 with what he knows, which is a very good sign.

His first move was his best move.

Good choice,

The 3-4 stays!

I hope he keeps Whipple too for Ben's sake.

Tomlin is a smart man we are going to see players being drafted that can be used in both schemes. I expect a new hybrid type defense mixing some elements of the 3-4blitzing style with the 4-3 cover2.
