What Tomlin said about Harrison being like an classic car that you drive then park in the garage the drive again in a few weeks then park back in the garage. Harrison won a game by his play at the beginning of the season. His play could sure benefit the Steelers even if it is 10 snaps or less in the playoffs. Tomlin at times makes some stands and does what he wants to. Which is kind of some of the crap that Ben is tired of.

the Harrison trade to the patriots just added a different aspect in what could be the AFC Championship game.....it seems to me the patriots always find their selves obtaining a star player right before the play-offs......just as last year when they acquired Michael Floyd from Arizona......Harrison joining the patriots will benefit in ways beyond the playing field.......I don't care if he is 37yrs old......hes a stud and he has enough in the tank to play a month of play-off football....

Can't dig a big hole and expect to win. Without not making big defensive plays at the end of the game. Seemed like they didn't think the Jags had any chance to beat them.

Jmo ! How do you replace a player like Shazier on D ? That's on the the Steelers ! 3rd down screen passes killed them ! I question 4 and 1 called! And the on side kick ? The D again and how do you replace a 4.3 40 ! Player ! On D ? Big Ben said see you next season ?

Ben may have said see you next season but that does not mean he will be playing. I think Shazier injury will give Ben more to think about. As well as Bell saying this week he may retire. Then the treatment of Harrison.
The announcers failed to say that an onside kick can not be advanced. The only way to make it work is kick it to the endzone and recover in the endzone. If not for some big time catches for TD's. I still do not get you have to celebrate after every TD. Even when your team is down a lot.

Yeah it was for TV ratings, Jags taking it to them by 21 was killing the ratings had to let Steelers back into it keep the viewing audience around. Didn't want same thing to happen like in regular season. :lol:

If it's true that Bell was talking contract before the game ? Trade him for high dollar for D Cb or line backer ! They did not stop one 3rd down ! ? And tell the head coach to get his act together!

There was some talk last year also of letting Tomlin go. As it seems he has stayed there long enough. He also was the one saying we will meet the Pats again in the playoffs. If they do want to let him go they must know who they want to replace him. Just need to also know that someone else will not pick up their choice.

Not saying Tomlin is a bad coach but he won with Bill Cowher players when he got the job ? Back when ever.

But the last few years many have said something is up with how this team interacts with one another. Part of it is with internet and social media coming in. Another is the flack coming up over the Flag on how the team reacted.
Wonder how Haley to go or stay?
I thought I read that the DC was going to retire.
No decision can be made about Tomlin without Ben. If Ben is not coming back would be easier to let Tomlin go.
Things have not been the Steelers way for a few years.

Read some reports that Bell missed two walk thurs before the game. That comes out after Bell stated he would sit out the season if Franchised. If it was true or not it did not need to come out before the season was over. If he missed walk thurs Tomlin should have made him inactive. Great talent but not a team player. If true time to let him go.
