Mike Tomlin Signing A Two-Year Steelers Extension Is A Real Trip
Ask me countless times if I think the Steelers perform way below their skill level under the thumb of Tomlin and I will try to spice my inflection up when I say "yes" every time.
Mike Tomlin lowers the Steelers down almost a half letter grade if you ask me. Is he a good coach? Sure? Uhh maybe? But he's not someone I'd bank on hoisting a Lombardi come these next several February's . All you need to look at is his defense getting fleeced by the Pats in the AFC Championship last January, but you can also look at the peripherals that take place in the locker room and on the sideline. He's even getting his franchise quarterback to contemplate retirement so, yeah, let's sign him for two more seasons before the Steelers see if this already better looking squad than last year will or won't live up to expectations. I expect not. And Joey Porter is still there, too: that beacon of leadership.
