Mike Tomlin deserves heat, but shouldn’t be fired
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.
The Patriots make overcoming adversity look easy
The Patriots are one win away from yet another Super Bowl appearance, and even though they make it look easy, they have quietly overcome adversity this season that would have sent most NFL teams into a downward spiral. Not only did they lose top wideout Julian Edelman for the year before the season started, they also have two coordinators that are about to take head coaching gigs, and have dealt with the tidal wave of publicity over the highly publicized article detailing dysfunction in the organization.
Bill Belichick is the greatest football coach of all-time, but he’s also unrivaled in getting his teams to block outside noise that would derail the season for lesser teams.
