Continuing last week’s coaching changes in the NFL, let's go game by game, team by team.
The Seattle Seahawks announced three additions to their coaching staff, naming Brian Schottenheimer offensive coordinator, Ken Norton Jr defensive coordinator and Mike Solari offensive line coach. There is no question the Seattle Seahawks have fallen apart on the offensive side of the football due to perhaps neglect or deterioration over the fact that Russell Wilson came out of his rookie status and had to be paid big money. Paying Wilson meant they didn't have enough money to pay an offensive line. As a matter of fact, they were in the bottom part of the league in lowest paid offensive lines and they performed as such.
It's hard to criticize a coach that has been around for 11 seasons and never had a losing season. I'm talking about Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have to tell you when I'm watching games that he coaches I have to shake my head at the decisions he makes. He just misses many simple decisions. I'm glad there is a connection between Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Tomlin that can be held together and then of course the chemistry that you get with the new offensive coordinator whoever that should be. This team underperformed this year in my opinion and many of the Tomlin coached teams do underperform. They play down to their competition. For Mike to be talking about an upcoming meeting with the Patriots and not focusing on the team that he's going to be playing this weekend is an atrocity. Personally I think he should be fired, but the Rooney family won't do that, most likely they'll just make a couple of changes around Mike and hope it works. I disagree but we'll have to see what happens
