    So sorry, it's gonna take more than one non-playoff year before the Rooneys show Tomlin the door.
    I'm confident that a losing season would result in a change at offensive coordinator if our offense struggled for that season. Of course I wouldn't expect Tomlin to be fired after one season of missing the playoffs.

    And all your examples citing how Cowher wasn't fired after his playoff losses differ dramatically from Tomlin losing in the playoffs. Cowher lost in the playoffs with Neil O'Donnell and Kordell Stewart. Tomlin is losing with Ben Roethlisberger.

    No matter how much talent a team has, luck and health are a very big part of winning.
    Our offense struggled all season even when the team was healthy. Injuries had nothing to do with our miserable offense. Our offense was incapable of scoring against Baltimore, and we never would've won a shootout against the Packers or the Saints.
