    .... and this is EXACTLY why I'm not exactly down with Tomlin yet. I'm getting tired of these rookie excuses that the playcalling sucked, or his time management skills aren't where they need to be as a HC going into his 4th season.

    I have Tomlin on a short leash this year, very short. He better up his game.

    Come on, Short leash? HE's a Super Bowl winning coach. We will be fine. I want to see what Dennis has to offer but I think Batch will start game one and take the pressure off of Dixon. They'll insert Dixon and let him roll from there. If he's on a roll they'll keep him in and He would Start game 2,3,4.

    I'd pick up Leinart for cheap or perhaps Troy Smith. Their really isn't much out there.

    Are you really a Super Bowl winning coach when you do it 1 year removed from a previous Super Bowl with somebody else's team?

    ... I don't think so. Which is why I don't recognize Gruden as one.

    On another note: Leinart blows monkey nads and Troy Smith is a poor man's version of Dennis Dixon. No thanks to either ...

    Whichever QB starts, go in knowing that the Falcons are going to bring the safety down in the box trying to take away the run..daring us to pass.

    We need to pass on first down and loosen their defense up. Then come back and establish the run. Showing some offensive balance.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    In regards to Tomlin and a short leash, for me it centers on Arians. These first four games w/o BR will tell us exactly what we need to know regarding BA's play-calling. If we are truly going back to running the ball then let's see Tomlin act on it.

    Arians is not the answer to the problems with the Steeler O...he is the problem.
