    The Steelers new Coach is..(drumroll please)



    Mike Tomlin

    Tomlin is just 34 and was the Vikings D Coordinator.

    I see a complete makeover in Pittsbugh and I dont expect much from those guys in 07.

    Mangini is/was 35. Would this make Tomlin the youngest HC ever or just the youngest right now?

    Edit - seems Shula was 33.

    in fact, the first time we saw McNair look like crap was in Minnesota in preseason, against this cover 2....hmm.

    According to ESPN, Tomlin is denying he has the job...

    It's one thing to run a cover 2, it's another thing to have the personnel to execute it well. I could be wrong but I *think* the Steelers pass rushing linebackers are not the traditional cover 2 type, and neither is Troy Polamalu the traditional cover 2 safety.

    That said, we should be very worried about *all* our games next year, because it is possible we were exposed as a team that can't go deep effectively.

    If teams do defend us by forcing us to go long, we will (hopefully) make them pay by flooding zones, burning them with effective slot receivers, and running the ball. We will not have Carson Palmer or Drew Brees playing quarterback next year, so 50 yard line drives will not be happening. Unless KB is under center, but that's a different thread.

    I won't matter who the new caoch is. The Ravens are coming back in 2007 with a real passion to win. Look out Steelers we are going to crush you.

    You mention that the first time McNair look bad was against the Cover 2 in Minnesota. First of all that was preseason and we were trying not to show our hand a week or so before taking on Tampa, who runs the Tampa 2 which Im pretty sure is just like the cover 2.

    This brings me to my next point. The first time McNair looked great was against Tampa and their Cover 2.

    Im not sure how a team can "force" us to throw it deep.

    I don't know if McNair was great against Tampa, over 60% but under 200 yds. Plus, Tampa was awful this year. Regardless, Buffalo and Indy both run one, and he played pretty cruddy against both of them.

    It still worries me.

    Here is an interesting and amazing fact: the Ravens will be the only team in the AFC North that has a white HC. The Stains, Bengals, and now Steelgirls now have African American HCs. That is amazing. Kuddos NFL.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Who cares? I am already getting sick of this "black coach" talk leading up to the Super Bowl, and now with this Tomlin stuff. Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are both great coaches, but all you hear about is how they are BLACK coaches. This just further brings attention to the fact that they are "different". What happened to MLK's hope to judge a man by his actions rather than the color of his skin?

    Oh, and Crennel is a pretty lousy coach who might not be in the AFC North for very long.

    I wasn't going to say anything, because I've sounded off enough on this BS, but you're exactly right Losac.

    This kind of mentality in regard to the "black coaches" is what keeps racial divides alive. Enough with it already. They are two good coaches. You would think that some blacks would find it offensive that people find the need to pander to this side of the aisle. In my mind, the implications are offensive to blacks. The coaching quotas and token interviews are a slap in the face; they imply that these guys can't do it on their own.

    In reality, the best MAN will win. If you're a good coach, you're a good coach. It's not because of the color of your skin. This kind of shit needs to be ignored.

    18.7% of coaches in the NFL are black. 12% of the U.S. population is black. Why are people still CONSTANTLY referencing RACE??

    I think it'll probably be draft day before we know where he's gonna go with their D. He's kept LeBeau as their DC and I don't think he's got any experience with the Cover 2, which may suggest that they're maintaining Blitzburgh.

    Either way, they need to get some new talent at the marquee pass rush positions in the draft be that DE with a switch to the cover 2, or OLB if they maintain the Blitzburgh D.
