The Steelers fired offensive coordinator Todd Haley yesterday, following a disappointing home playoff loss, and many others would like the organization to go a step further and fire Mike Tomlin. Colin has been hard on Tomlin, and has frequently criticized his teams for running too high on emotion and lacking attention to detail, but he disagrees with those that want him axed.
Even though Tomlin has historically struggled to beat the Patriots, and mismanaged the final seconds of their crucial Week 15 loss to New England, Pittsburgh finished with 13 wins, and were an instant replay reversal of a Jesse James TD catch away from having home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Colin understands the frustrations with Tomlin, but it’s unfair to call for his job just because he doesn’t stack up to Belichick and the Patriots. No one does.
