The Steelers must be introspective when it comes to evaluating the coaching staff
Before I make my point about being introspective in evaluating the coaching staff, I would like to say that I appreciate the fact that you are not a meddlesome president and majority owner, at least as far as my limited knowledge of the inner workings of the team is concerned, which is essentially no knowledge.
As I stated earlier, I am a fan who witnessed the glory days of the 1970s, the not-so-glorious days of the 1980s, the resurgence of the 1990s, and so on and so forth. I have lived through several losing seasons. I think it is a testament to how well Coach Mike Tomlin has performed since he was named our head coach that we have never had a losing season.
How long will that last given what we have witnessed over the first five games of the season? Our margin for error is slim to none, but that margin for error doesn't have to be razor-thin if changes are made on both sides of the ball.
As I laid out, statistically speaking, we are not a very good football team on either side of the ball. That falls on both Canada and Teryl Austin, but it ultimately falls on Tomlin. That's where you come in. While I am not suggesting that a change needs to be made at the top, I am suggesting that changes be made in the middle.
Again, I appreciate the fact that we are not prone to making changes for the sake of making changes, but for the sake of potentially saving this season, I would respectfully offer that changes need to be made. Whether those changes are precipitated by you or by Tomlin, I don't think it matters so long as they are made.
Thank you for your time.
