    Is this Mike Tomlin's team?

    I have said since we got in the playoffs but MT deserves to be Coach of the year for all the off field issues with number 7 and able to enforce a winning atmosphere during that 4 game situation. Now we are in the AFC Championship game. Can we agree now that this Mike Tomlin's team? He may not be as loud mouth and jaw jerking on the sideline as Cowher, but i like his style and it seems to be successful . Reminds me of my soccer coach from high school who always told us he was not there to motivate us cause if we were not motivated from within before the game, then we had already lost the game. I feel like he is there to keep the lid on the team and let his defensive supermind in Lebeau and assclown run the same reverse option play Arians do their thing.

    Actually it's Rooney's team. But Mike has run it for 4 years now and has been very successful.

    This is indeed Tomlin's team which could be a good thing or a negative thing. I thought he took a great approach being down at half Saturday night, but there have been other times this season involving clock manangement especially that has left a lot to be desired. The other negative 'could' be Bruce Arians. There are many of us that would like to show him the door, but if we go on to #7 it'll be a tough sell. If we don't, I think it's time to part ways and this is ultmiately going to fall on Tomlin. So ya, this is his team, but I think this week will go a long way towards determining just how much of this team he really has.

    It's all about 2 more W's! He can be great if he gets them or he can just be known as another Cowher, Reid, Schottenheimer, ect.

    Common, this is Tomlin's team. Do you see Steelers throwing each under the bus as the Ravens do in the press regularly here in Baltimore? No way. His best qualities is that his ego is in check, and he feels no need to fill us all in on what's happening on a daily basis. He benches, and rotates as he wants, and could care less how we feel about it. He's the coach, is clearly not in a popularity contest, and has the respect of his team.

    In years... 3 AFC North titles...2 AFC champ games.... 1 SB (so far)

    Pouncey, Timmons, Woodley, Wallace, Sanders, Brown, Redman, Mendenhall, Suisham, Sepulveda, starting James Harrison at OLB... and he needs to add more impact players? This is Tomlins team no matter who came before him... I still stand by this guy.. It took him 2 years to do what Cowher did in 15
