Steeler Nation spoiled
Anyone who follows sports columnist Dejan Kovacevic knows he is right on the money with everything he says about the Steelers, from his thoughts about Antonio Brown to Mike Tomlin's game plans.
Steeler Nation was spoiled by the Bill Cowher era. Now we're seeing the true Tomlin era and it's time Coach Tomlin stops his rhetoric of the last two seasons. He sounds like a broken record in every interview.
We either love you or hate you, but we always hate to lose. We understand rebuilding. What we don't understand or tolerate is poor coaching.
And offensive coordinator Todd Haley's game plans? They remind me of a comet — out in space somewhere.
Big Ben and the other veterans cannot continue to shoulder the blame for poor coaching and poor performance by substandard players. Maybe it's time for Tomlin and company to do a gut check and get on with their life's work somewhere other than in Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately, the Rooneys will stick by their coach and the Steeler Nation will have to suffer. They need to be aware that the “boo birds” are alive and well and if the “game plan” doesn't improve, they'll surely propagate.
I am a spoiled and disappointed, but loyal, fan.
