    Remember this... Munch left his HC position more or less because the front office was meddling too much... he was respected there too...

    Can we trade Shades to Denver for a 4th round pick and promote Munch?

    We've heard part of why he took the steelers job was to be closer to home. If that's true, he may be interested in the Jets if they interview him. Munch is from Scranton so NYC would be closer to home for him than even Pittsburgh.

    Munch isn't a Jets type hire. He's respected but he's not a splash and the Jets always go for splash to compete with Giants for headlines. I'm hearing Jets might go for Mike McCarthy who would be a big name. I've also heard Baylor coach Matt Ruhle. That would be a splash just because it's so out of left field.

    Munch would be a huge loss, but Iíve heard a lot of good things about Sarrett like heís essentially another Munch who could step right in. A lot of continuity there with many of the same players. Canít imagine the drop off will be as big as it might seem

    Malone was a very good QB but tore up his knee early on, missed a whole season, and was never the same player after. Bubby was decent enough and got a SB ring before Cowher did. Merrill Hoge loved playing with Bubby and said he drew his plays in the dirt with a stick.

    Malone also held the LONGEST TD pass reception of the STEELERS for a long time.................................

    No, we weren't aware that Tomlin "has the fourth best winning record in NFL history."

    Because he doesn't.

    Only in our dreams, Ron. Think AB would straighten up under Munchak?

    Nope, just 3rd most wins all time for a coach after 12 seasons. Behind only Shula and Dungy...

    Or just two less playoff wins and a worse winning percentage (8-7) than Mike McCarthy (10-8), who started the same year, and just got fired earlier this season.

    Or the same number of playoff wins and a worse winning percentage over the last EIGHT years (3-5) than Ron Rivera (3-4), who coincidentally also saw his team piss away a playoff berth with a late-season collapse, and is on the hot seat in Carolina.

    We can play this game all night, slick.

    Not sure, but he had Ben for 3 seasons, and made 2AFCCG's, Tomlin has had Ben 12 seasons and has made 3 AFCCG'S.

    He had one of the best defenses in the league, at a time when defenses actually won championships. Tomlin has not had that benefit. We can do this all night.

    I tire of this back n forth Cowher/Tomlin crap.

    Regardless crash I know you are pro-Tomlin and your view points will always center around that.

    But you are reaching on this D stance. As talent is a part of the HC decision making. Tomlin has had every benefit that the rest of the 31 teams have to win or lose. And his teams year after year under-perform. Shitty decision making in every box capable of being checked off.

    That is what matters the NOW. And his now is painful to watch year to year.

    His record turns to shit once he hits the playoffs though. We joke about the Pats***** feasting on a weak division but ours isn't a lot tougher. The Browns have been dogshit since he's been here and the Bungles manage to beat themselves more often than not.
