    Tomlin is 34, and his team went 6-10. Why would the Steelers be this interested? For the same reason the Vikings would miss him: Even in a dysfunctional organization, Tomlin commanded the respect and attention of everyone he encountered.

    Those who know Tomlin best didn't rule him out as a head coaching candidate because they knew, given the opportunity to interview, he would impress prospective employers

    Not to mention he has no head coaching experience, only 1 year experience as a coordinator, and only 5 years experience in the NFL.
    And his defense ranked last in the NFL against the pass this year.
    What wouuld be interesting is when he has to work with subordinates much older and more experienced than he is (such as Bruce Arians).

    When you're promoted to a higher position I don't think there will be compensation

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    The compensation is "Lesson Learned".

    Don't let your highly touted D-coordinator interview for jobs in the first place.

    They should have denied him to have interviews after his first year. That way if Childress still didn't pan out after year 2 & Tomlin did, they could have fired Childress & have the option to go to Tomlin as the next HC.

    By granting him permission to have interviews, they slit their own throat.

    Perhaps Childress knew that if he didn't make progress after year two, Tomlin might be a threat to replacing him. Could be a reason why he let Tomlin interview.

    IMO, Tomlin got a lot more respect from his players than Childress did.

    Is the majority always agaist me or we always have devil advocates? LOL

    :P

    I think you are in the minority when it comes to your stance on Tomlin.
    Yeah!

    well I think if I wrote Minnesota is Great! Everybody would say it sucks.


    If I said packers suck! They would say its great.


    Thats sad.....

    :



    I'd have to disagree with you.
    People who are posting in opposition to you are posting on specific issues, taking offense to specific comments...and posting evidence that supports their opposition.
    They aren't disagreeing with you because YOU said it.

    I too happen to disagree with you.
    While I grant you that our Defense still needed work, Tomlin was the single bright spot on a field of dismal failure this past season.
    With him running the Defense, I had the feeling that improvement on that front was a guaranteed thing.
    Now, I don't even have that to look forward to.

    So, losing Tomlin was almost adding insult to injury.
    I think Pittsburgh got one hell of a promising head coach in Mike Tomlin, and I wish him the best of luck...

    ...now if only he'd have taken Childress with him....

    Thats a beautiful plan piss off your employees and expect them to perform at a high level for you.

    Hasn't he done that with some of his players?

    It's what my company started doing.
    Player issues are compounded when you lose. You could be the nicest coach on the planet and lose games and get thrown under the bus by your players.

    A different issue would be keeping someone from advancing which to my knowledge we have never done. You can franchise tag someone but there are rewards for that especially if you are tenured.

    So basically IMO no it's not the same. If you keep an assistant from moving then you are basically saying no you may not improve your quality of life, no you may not improve your financial situation, no I don't care about your family, about you, all I want you to do is show up and do the best you can do.........

    How many NFL teams force their cords to stay when under contract? Not many and after arbitration they can't anyway. Unless it is written within the contract. It is their right to quit a job and get another job.
