you are all forgetting that tomlin inherited a superbowl team and has arguably the greatest defensive coordinator ever. tomlin really hasn't done a whole lot in my opinion. all of the core guys on this team were from cowher and tomlin barely plays the guys he brought in. i have been saying from the start that we will see how good of a coach tomlin is when cowher's guys retire and/or lebaue leaves. if he still gets to the playoffs after that then he deserves an extension.
Once a fan, always a fan.
I say wait until after 2010 before we start throwing money at him, he has 2 years left and I like the guy, I think he knows what he's doing, but lets see how the Steelers come out in 2010 after such a disappointing & embarrassing season. Better unleash somethin' Tomlin lol, just don't say it.
Of course it would make the most sense to wait until after this year to renew him. For whatever reason the Rooneys have always renewed it with 2 years left. I think it's more common for teams to do it with 1 year left, my guess is the Rooneys take a lot of pride in sticking behind thier head coachng choice and renewing with 2 years left is thier little wa of showing that. So I doubt this year would be any different.
I don't think Tomlins head is as big as Cowhers was yet. Last years performance won't help in his negotiations. He'll get a raise as well he should but it won't be what Wiz makes.

there is a big difference between tomlin and wheesy, tomlin took over a pretty good team that one the super bowl the previous year. wheesy took over a far underpar cardinal team that blew prior to wheesy's arrival. so all in all wheesy deserves that 6 mill per year. cause he had to rebulid from the ground up. tomlin just continued the winning tradition of pittsburgh football
