Put some Respect on Tomline name

Updated: Mar 7

If Pittsburgh Monday night game was Big Bens last he went out breaking a record... Not his own but helping Tomline break the most consecutive winning season by a Head Coach, previously owned by Marty Schootnenheimer. Tomlin achieve the one accolade Schootnenheimer couldn't reach winning the Super Bowl. Its time we give him his flowers for keeping everything together through all the drama.


Tomlin is known for the way he can connect with players along with smooth wordplay to capture the fans and media. Black men get the rare opportunity to become head coach of an NFL franchise yet along given time to implement their culture. Tomlin defied odds becoming the youngest head coach ever to win a Super Bowl. Tomlin is the standard now for anybody as a Head Coach. As he paces back and forth on the sideline cool, calm, and collected no matter the score or off the field issues.


Tomlin's first locker room distraction came from his young star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who was accused of rape twice. LeVon Bell opting out of a season due to contract issues while always dealing with the antics of Brown. Brown kept the team and fans together in order to obtain a decent season or make the playoffs. What Tomlin is doing will open doors for the future minority head coaches. Being a shining example on how to lead a franchise.
