I want him in detroit, but i think STL will throw a lot of money at him. The most fun place for him to go would be BAL he'd make that defense even more unreal

Just glad we won't make the same mistake with him as we did with Jason Gildon.

Thomas is way better than Porter. He is a year younger and he just had a great year after Porter had one of his worst. Thomas is alot bigger as well.

Actually Colbert and company (Not Tomlin) made the decision. They didn't want to have to pay Porter $1,000,000 roster bonus, just for him to hold out of training camp. Do I think Porter was worth his base salary this year? Yes. Do I think he was worth what his contract demands were going to look like? No. He wanted to basically get paid "Franchise" LB money, and frankly he's a contract past that worth.

Tomlin has been great so far. If he's 1/10th of the coach that he interviews as, we have a bright future.. Sure we may have a bad season or so.. But hell Noll only won I believe 2 games his first season as head coach... then what happened... 4 Superbowls in 5 years.


So I don't think Tomlin is the bad guy in this situation.
Big difference. Noll took over a horrible team, Tomlin is taking over a very good team that had injuries last year and had the cowher deal hanging over thier heads. I guarantee, if Tomlin doesn't have a good season, the fans and media will be all over him. I hope we are still a force in the AFC, I just have big doubts about this guy. I sure hope I'm wrong.

well my opinion is that our fans atleast most of them and OUR media maybe not national media but OUR media, won't be all over him if we don't have a good season, because our fans are more loyal than that and aren't dumb and know that it MIGHT take a new coach (brand new coach)more than a year to get his groove on. regardless i don't think there is a chance that we have a bad season, i full expect a 10-12 win season if not more. have you seen our schedule?? yea that is excitement feeding my typing right now. :D

Yea, But Cowher also took over Noll's team. Whats the difference between Tomlin and Cowher really?

Both were 34 with very very few years as a Coordinator. Both were former Coordinators in a 4-3 defense. Cowher was more of a high energy guy, Tomlin a more reserved but insightful players coach.

I think Tomlin could face adversity with a bad season, but thats my only gripe about clueless steeler fans. In an area that still has some racial issues, I think Tomlin was the perfect pick for the job. He's young, Organized, very articulate. His players love him and frankly If he has losing seasons 3 years in a row, I'm still on his bandwagon.

Tomlin does possess something Cowher doesn't. His intuitive X's and O's ability. Cowher was a motivator, most of the X/O's were Coordinators and position coaches. Tomlin is capable of designing said plays. I think that gives us a big advantage.


Also, very few people knew how Cowher kept the offense. He had 7 Offensive Coordinators in his time. He never threw a play out or cleaned the play book. It was a hodge-podge of 7 different offensive minds. Which if you watched, Holmes and Washington had major problems earlier in the season running the wrong routes. Arians, has already threw away the play book and is designing a more streamlined version. You gotta understand this is the guy that helped Design the Peyton Manning offense, and he sees Roethlisberger in the same build. Good arm, intelligent. He needs to spend more time in the video room, but I think with the new staff and previous season he will. I think Rookies can now make more of an impact and the offense will be more dangerous. Expect to see more runs from a 4 wide offense and more passing from Dual TE sets.

The Pittsburgh Steelers recently cut outside linebacker Joey Porter, and he has privately, through several Ravens players, let it be known that he has interest in the Ravens.

Porter, Ravens public enemy No. 1, said before the start of the 2006 season he had patched things up with Ray Lewis and Heap, who was hit by Porter in 2004 after he had injured his ankle.

The Ravens have an opening, especially with Thomas on the market. The Steelers have stated that they cut Porter for salary-cap reasons, but it was apparent that his performance dropped off last season. There is a replay of Cleveland tight end Kellen Winslow slamming Porter to the ground after a one-on-one attempt on the sideline during last season. That pretty much sums up Porter's season.

Free agent Joey Porter is interested in playing for the Chargers, according to the North County Times.

Porter isn't expected to make formal visits to teams until next week. The Ravens, Browns, 49ers, and Dolphins are all believed to have interest.
