Its no different then knowing from day 1 that Peyton was more talented than Favre, and it was only a matter of a few years before it would be obvious to everyone.
A lot of teams win and lose with their best players. People blame coaches way too much for losses, including Tomlin. He drives me nuts at times like everyone else but he is a decent coach and better than any other options I can think of.
It's funny how people blame Tomlin for losses that were caused by piss poor play but don't give Tomlin credit for wins.
Comparing teams of the past to teams of the present and trying to predict what coaches or players would do then compared to now is just ridiculous. There is absolutely no way to predict it.
As for the Rooney rule, there is a chance Tomlin was hired because he is black, but nobody knows that for sure. All we know is that he was interviewed because he is black. It's certainly more than possible that he was hired because he was considered the best candidate.
In Chuckies defense he did build up the Raiders who he faced as coach of the Bucs the next year.
