Tomlin asked if the organization made a decision on whether Ben will be back next year or not...Tomlin said they have to assess it.
IMO, with a 1st ballot HOF, you say you want him back even if you think he should retire.
I missed it. Did they ask him if he called all the plays ?.
nothing about the OC, OL and DC coaches cleaning out their lockers?
What I can tell you for certain is that other NFL coaching staffs construct their game plans and make in-game adjustments around the perceived weaknesses of their opponents. Tomlin doesn't. His "Nameless Gray Faces" approach is focused on his players doing what they do, not good strategy. Why do you think Cleveland was so much better prepared for this game, even though they played the Steelers' backups the week before? Because they knew Tomlin was going to have the same plan. They adjusted. Tomlin didn't.
Maybe you're right...perhaps it's as simple as Heyward AND Tuitt forgetting how to play good football on the interior line. I have a hard time believing that.

Was surprised the media asked soft questions and not some hard fact questions. One tried once and Tomlin skirted around it only once did he mention him in the equation of wrong doing/
I didn't watch the press conference, but from what I gather from comments here, there is no reason to search for it.
Tomlinson cops out.
Tomlin was not disrespectful, but the question on Ben deserved better. Ben seems once more to be the poser child of disrespect. The man took us to three Super Bowls and won two, The third except for a fumble may have been three. He has led winning drives for the Steelers how many times, yet all the shit coverage of one game Ben is treated like third class back up QB. No media or Tomlin pointing at the head coach, the defense and especially if Tomlin did take over a lackluster defense against the Brown's, Sad Ben deserves much better, from Tomlin, this organization and especially the players, that for once have kept mouths shut on the social media trail and stand up for Ben. Just unacceptable.
We dropped my wife's minivan off at the shop tonight, we're driving back home and 93.7 was replaying MT's presser and she didn't understand why I started laughing out loud.
I don't know Butler's and Fichtner's contract status but I'd say that if they're still under contract there is better than a 50% chance they will be back. Art The Deuce is getting like Mike Brown, he isn't paying anyone not to work no matter how bad they are at their job.

Just read this on NFL.com
"It has been a disappointment. I'm not going to maintain status quo and hope the outcome changes. That's the definition of insanity," he told reporters Wednesday, per ESPN.
Hope the front office is thinking the same thing
