Or worse on their own side of the field. Or try that 56 yd. field goal with two minutes left last game? He is the riverboat gambler that always loses.
I would like give Tomlin the benefit of the doubt, but really.... He is ALWAYS the second smartest Head Coach on the field at every Steeler Game. He makes boneheaded decisions and NEVER makes a coaching decision that is what you would call a strategic move from a coaches point of view. NEVER a decision that outsmarts the other coach. NEVER

He was just in the right place at the right time. He is excellent at "coachspeak". He great at accepting responsibility for the mistakes of his team. But he himself is not held accountable publicly
