Please tell me im not the only one that has noticed from day 1 of the "Tomlin era"

That he Does Not call any plays.

Ive never seen him call a play. Never seen a play sheet in his hand. Never seen him talking to ben on the sidelines after timeouts, ben goes str8 to his offensive coordinator. Hes always just listening. I think his headset is unplugged. A lot of bad timeout calls and bad challenges.


Maybe he keeps his team prepared and the players like him. Which is all good. But thats only half the job. Im just not a fan of people saying Mike Tomlin is a great coach. Week in a week out I watch a steeler game and he does almost nothing, but clap and cheer for his team.


Yes im a little bit mad. lols.

From last year lol gotta love that swag

PITTSBURGH -- When a weary Mike Tomlin arrived home from the Steelers' 37-36 victory over the Packers, 8-year-old Dino popped the same question much of Pittsburgh was asking: Why did you try that onside kick?

"I told him to be quiet," Tomlin said at his weekly news conference on Tuesday.

to be honest, what more do you want from a head coach. he makes sure his players are ready every game and that they play hard for him. sure he might get more credit than he deserves, but he would also get all of the blame if they were bad.

The #1 job of a head coach is to hire a good staff. They are first and foremost a manager. Do they help with game planning? Sure. They have a lot of football experience. But on game day, it's their job to manage the game and let the coordinators do their job. I don't think anyone has any room to critique the way MT runs his team. He clearly has a winning formula.

a lot of HC's dont assume playcalling.

mind you Tomlin is a defensive coach, and he has Lebeau. Naturally he defers to the DC playcalling. Of course he wont be calling offensive plays either.

imo, Tomlin isnt a mastermind technician, but his strengths lie in motiviation and leadership.

This.

Pretty much everything you said OP, is what makes him a great coach.

His job is to guide and build a team of players and coaches to win football games. If that means calling every play on offense and defense, so be it, if it means calling 0, fine. Every approach can be different as long as they have the same outcome, win games.

yeah i still remember the first game of the season against the falcons. they showed Coach smith blazing over to the ref and repeatedly yelling TIMEOUT TIMEOUT TIMEOUT!!!!
then later in another tense situation they show tomlin standing next to the ref while waiting nonchalantly for the right moment to calll it. that moment comes, he gracefully slides his mike down and utters, "tiiiiiiimeout..."

swaggin'

Come on, lol. Im too much of a diehard.

Mike Tomlin walked into a great situation, which is fine.
The players play for him. I just dont think its fair to call him great and put him on a bill bellichek type lvl.

Insert obligatory espn/NFLnetwork quote about his "coolness" "swagger" "swag" "smoothness" (any of these can be used interchangeably)

I like him and I think he is a good coach, you dont get to the superbowl twice in 4 years otherwise, but man its funny the code words sportscasters use for black people and white people.

Nobody is on Belichick's level.


Tomlin does his coaching from day one (training camp). He prepares and motivates, and says the right things in the media. Every single one of his players knows that he has their backs whether win or lose.

I don't think anyone that his hyping up Tomlin is referring to his in game ability as a Coach.

Bottom line, being a Head Coach doesn't mean calling plays.

He kinda reminds me of Les Miles.

I despise all Pittsburgh teams especially the Steelers but for some reason I find Tomlin to be a likable guy. And he is a good coach whether you like him or not.

Sure looked like Rex ryan that mark Sanchez ran to on the sideline on that last TD to cotchery.

Clearly Rex is not a good head coach.




























Or a bad one either
