Listen: Coach Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Tomlin discussed on The Chris Moore Show
"Number here. They say six agree. Ten twenty talk Tech's, and you can always write us at the dollar Bank instant access center. But we're going to do something completely different today. I got this idea from reading our Bruce in the courier a column that he wrote about coats com Tomlin, and it seems as though when I listened to all the sports talk. So read the sports talk to people who are around this city. They're talking about whether Thomas should be fired, and what should be done with Antonio Brown and much more. Now, many of you know, that considered the Steelers part of the Roman circus, but there's voices in this town that has something to do with the Steelers that you all never hear those voices are all here today. We're going to start with Aubrey Bruce RBM this show is your brother. Column that you wrote about people saying that they want to get rid of Tom. And what do you think well things like I said, and I have to say you've been covering sports long as I've been allowed you for long here. Well, I think that it would be okay. If it was numerically sound in terms of numbers, but Tommy has a point six four one winning percentage. Cower six one nine point five seven. And I'm saying if you talk about numbers, if they really want to be scientists, there's no new miracle way possible that they could even consider firing Mike Tomlin. And that's my take on it. We'll build now you've been around sports for as long as I have known you. I wonder what you think about this situation. And whether Tomlin should be fired is is Rb. Right. Well, first of all, let me say for the record probably everybody in this room is taken something from Aubrey Bruce. By yourself. All still a little bit from. He knows it. And most importantly, he's he's the closest one tool on an ongoing basis, and he goes back historically to Bill none and Chuck Nolan in the higher ups in the Rooney soap. So are we come from a good position? But to answer your question. Non was the guy who drafted a lot of these players who made the Steelers four Super Bowls possible out of these black college without him. We wouldn't have had. Okay, he brought the greatest defense in the history of football to Pittsburgh Nari. Go ahead. Interrupt your point. Well, that's all right. That's all right. Listen. I. Had the great pleasure of of hosting champions. Live sports talk show every Thursday night at the Savoy restaurant. And I co host with Kevin Cameron saute champions live in he'll give you some insight on that. And I've been saying for for quite some time, and these guys will tell you. He's untouchable as Aubrey indicated his numbers or or untouchable, his his mindset his diligence his his discipline. His they say soft on discipline. That's range from all these other spoil you. You know? Great coach, John Thompson, George Georgetown. Once said, that's the only thing. Most media guys has never played was checkers. Most of these guys don't know. And and here's the thing is we get into this show because you're going to hear from I think a whole room full of guys that have played the game. You know, it's easy to talk about something from the outside looking in. But when you've been there, and you know, how it works. Whole different perspective. Tomlin is untouchable. I start playing and ask you so so long ago. I don't remember. A cavern you build Neal with the sports show that he was just talking about it to Savoy every Thursday night. What do you think of all this shit? Coach Tomlin be fired. Not at all. Always first of all Chris. Thanks very much for allow my voice to be her radio. I'm here, man. I'm a big Mike Tomlin fan, and it's very warranted are Bray mentioned it earlier based on the record. Okay. Anytime you want to just someone you should judge based on performance. Now. Everything is imperfect with anyone. Oh, ever with Mike Tomlin? We've made the playoffs. The last four or five years. This is the first year in five years that the Steelers did not make the playoffs. All you gotta do is win and people won't talk about fire. You you know, we're never ever. We never get enough. Add there's two Chris since we're talking about black coaches. I have to take this opportunity to say congratulations to my hometown team, the Aliquippa quips. Alright Warfield the first black head coach for Aliquippa actually won the WPA L this well as the state championship. And there was a lot of controversy when he took the job is now you're gonna bring a pin heels in his career. There was a sad as to which one of us would go to our high school championship. I so I win the money. I knew cavalry. Says he brought it up. If anybody wants me to take off this pin hill shirt, I'll take it. We are two state champions in the highest level possible. But go ahead. All right. Our bring Brad cooking in a suit my son from a previous relationship. Claiming Brian you cover the Steelers you often at the press conferences. What do you gather? When you go in these rooms because when I read these guys at the papers and hear on the sports shows, I hear a lack of diversity in the coverage to tell you the truth. What do you think there is a lack of diversity especially in in people who are covering the Pittsburgh Steeler from the first hand standpoint if you will. But when you say, you know, going to the press conference, you have to think you always have someone who's answering those questions who has to be the smartest person in the room. And that person is Mike Tomlin. Okay. He's a person. He takes control of the press conferences, if he notices that people are going off. Off topic. If you will talking about Twitter and things that are irrelevant to the true essence of the game of football. Mike Tomlin was shut that down and say, well are there any football questions here? And you know, Aubry, you know, you brought up some of those numbers. Mike tomlin. You know? Let's let's go back to like Bill cower. Okay. Bill cower in his first ten years and Mike Tomlin in his first ten years. There's no comparison. No comparison. Okay. What do you mean? As far as the numbers are concerned. Bill cower in his first ten years won ninety nine games. Okay. Mike Tomlin in his first ten years. One over one hundred games and went to two Super Bowls. The criticism of that is he was doing it would you know, what I'm glad you said that because with Bill cower he went to his first Super Bowl lost against the Dallas Cowboys and Tempe. Arizona Super Bowl thirty with Chuck Noll's players. Okay. So and then think about some of these, you know, 'cause that's an element. That's not being talked about think about this Dermontti Dauphin hall of Famer, okay? Rod Woodson hall of Famer came from the Chuck knoll. Oh, yeah. Greg Lloyd, you know, and I think Kevin Greene came under Bill Cowher later on the free agency. But think about that team who went to the Super Bowl so Bill coward. Did that with? Chuck Noll's team. I want to bring the quietest guy in the room into this Nasmyth, Jim. Man. He's a man watches more film about football. No smoker. Jim, what do you think of this current debate? Hey, thanks. Mr moore. I tell you what anybody that knows me knows. I like love coach Tomlin coast on and did a fabulous job one hundred thirty one wins to Super Bowl appearances won the Super Bowl. But the ownership is not giving him a budget for his assistant coaches. His assistant coaches will like interns coach Tomlin knows everybody in the National Football League. And he does not have a budget to bring in great assistant coaches. So if they're not going to give him the budget to bring an assistant coaches now would never win another Super Bowl with coach Mike Tomlin. So yeah. Joey porter. It is was an intern is. Is. Right now. Maybe the coach Tomlin go who's had hall of fame career and bring in a Mike McCarthy everybody laughs about Mike McCarthy. But this is where you say coast Tomlin go this is what a Mike McCarthy will do Mike McCarthy Green Bay work with Brett farve a hall of fame quarterback who similarly big bit. He developed and coach Aaron Rodgers who reminds me a Mason Rudolph. If you're looking for future in the Pittsburgh Steelers. It may be time now to bring in Mike McCarthy's integrate, outstanding staff smoking, Jim. Let me tell you something my brother, and I love you Mike McCarthy was wanna know Super Bowl right in that game. Packers beat the Steelers thirty one twenty five by six points. But bit been had to intersection one ran back for a touchdown pick six the score two plays later Rashard mendenhall, which a seventeen point swing. He won by six other than those three turnovers. He will be oh in one instead of. He would not be considered a genius. All right. I gotta take a break believing that we gotta pay the bills. We'll take a break come back with my guests is we talk more Steeler football on this edition of our program. Stay with us.."
