At some point Tomlin needs to be held accountable. Colbert more so. The fact that Steven Ridley was even in a position to fumble in week 16 is an indictment on his inability to get quality depth for well over a decade

Yes and Romo knows what we know. He just doesn’t have the balls to say it. That being said CBS guys totally rooting against Steelers and for a team from nfc is pretty much a hoje too. The nfl controls game outcomes through the pass interference rule. It is the biggest sham of all.

So we will lose to the Bengals and then the Browns will beat the Ravens or we will win and then the Browns kicker will miss a chip shot as time expires to lose. Either way we won’t make the playoffs.

Steelers were screwed multiple times by the refs, but good teams don't put themselves in this position to begin with. Really dissapointing.

Tomlin doesn't challenge a possible fumble by the Saints in the first half around the Steelers 20 , but he tries a fake punt while ahead in the game . Tomlin should go but that will not happen . If the Steelers win and the Titans and Colts tie , who wins the tiebreaker among the three teams ?

I have calmed down a little clinging on the hope of missing the playoffs might lead to change. But this time next week when we lose and miss the playoffs but hey, winning record, and Tomlin is still the coach I will be drinking heavily for a long long time.

I saw that too, it was missed by the coaches and the announcers. Not a big deal I guess but they did show the replay like 4 times.

This season ought to be Tomlin's last. No way they should have tied Cleveland or lost to Oakland, San Diego, or New Orleans. Probably not Denver, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt since it's always tough to win at that altitude. Even with the early season struggles (he needs to be the coach and not allow Ben to go into the regular season with barely any preseason, but that's another discussion), this team could very well be 12-3 right now and maybe 13-2.

This team is constantly distracted, ill prepared, and he's almost always outcoached. I'll give him a ton of credit for the New England game, but that just makes the other games more frustrating. If the Steelers were as prepared for 16 games and playoffs as they were vs. New England, I think they're a strong Super Bowl contender on an almost yearly basis.

This team has no business being in this position, except for bad coaching. Too much talent on both sides of the ball.

I just wish the Baltimore/Cleveland game was at noon to put us out of our misery or give us something to root for.

Colbert is a problem too. The depth in this team has been atrocious. The same scrubs are still here year in, year out. I’m worried what he will do with the money saved by Bell not being here and desperately needing a better ILB and CB’s.

I don't think he's a huge problem. Artie Burns was a good draft pick that wasn't developed. Not his fault for the roster Tomlin chooses. Cutting the athletic Thomas over the scrub Matakevich, for example. Not Colbert's fault that the defense is so complicated it takes a rookies half a year to get to the point of bad or Joey Porter can't develop linebackers.

While his drafts aren't perfect, with better coaching they look a whole lot better. While I wouldn't lose sleep if he's gone, I don't think he's the problem.

The coaching is overall a total mystery. What exactly does Joey Porter, for example, even do? To say nothing of Keith Butler's defenses being saved by individual performances.

I'm also starting to warm to the idea of getting rid of Tomlin. That Oakland loss was the last straw; simply unforgivable to not have the team ready for that game, and then to also hold Ben out thinking the game was won? Ridiculous.

That said, it' s the Steelers, so Tomlin will never be fired because The Steelers Don't Fire Coaches™. Mediocrity here we come.

There’s also the whole idea that the Rooney’s will never fire someone hired by the Rooney Rule. I really don’t know what Tomlin can do to get replaced. Even an 0-16 season there will always be some sort of excuse.

Since we are playing one of the NFL bottom feeders today, I am not optimistic. A Tomlin specialty to blow this game.

As I type this, Ben tosses a pick 6. Sweet.
