View Full Version : How Steeler Loss is Tomlin Win

In trying to understand the inexplicable: MT's asinine decision to go for an onside kick with over 2 minutes remaining, 2 timeouts, and down just one score against a defense that your offense is shredding, I can't help but delve deeper into dangerous waters--Mike Tomlin's battered psyche.

What Tomlin most fears is being exposed that (to paraphrase Terry Bradshaw) he is little more than a glorified cheerleader.
With the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick waiting in the wings to once again expose his glaring mental deficiencies, Tomlin's took the safest course: losing. Avoid exposure, play it safe, live to fight another day, perhaps when the Pats and Brady and Hoody are gone. What he most dreaded was another January trek up North to Foxboro and another humiliating defeat at the hands of his mental superiors. That prospect was just too much for Mikey's fragile psyche to endure.

I apologize for getting so psychological, but how else can one explain a decision whose odds of success are so infinitesimally small?

Good theory but I just think he is a dolt, a jack-*** if you will. The man brings nothing to the table. Nothing.

His career largely has been built on ex-Cowher players and Ben. His time is running out.
