Some Steelers fans call for Mike McCarthy to replace Mike Tomlin

first_img WATCH: Steelers’ chance at game-tying field goal slips away At the top of their wish list: former Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who inspired the same type of loathing among many Green Bay fans before the team fired him Dec. 2. In addition to McCarthy’s coaching resumé, which includes a Super Bowl victory — against the Steelers, no less — many fans like the fact that he’s a Pittsburgh native. Ben Roethlisberger injury update: Steelers QB returns after hit to the ribs vs. Raiders Here’s a sampling of some of the more insistent Tweets. Related Newscenter_img The Steelers are reeling, losers of three straight, and many fans are not feeling the love for coach Mike Tomlin.Social media filled with angry Steelers faithful after Sunday’s 24-21 loss to the 2-10 Raiders. Many said it’s time for Tomlin to go. I’ve never been a “Fire Tomlin” guy, but Mike McCarthy is a born & raised Pittsburgher, we went to same elemantary school in Squirrel Hill……IF we fire Tomlin after this season, it better be for him #HereWeGo— just think. (@ShmattShmahan) December 10, 2018I hear there’s an up and coming Coach coming out of Green Bay. You might want to take a look at him. I think he’s going to be something special.If we had McCarthy…..Or half a dozen other coaches, Big Ben would be sporting two more pieces of bling— 𝓨𝓸𝓾𝓻 𝓓𝓪𝓲𝓵𝔂 𝓛𝓵𝓪𝓶𝓪 🇺🇸KAG (@YourDailyLlama) December 10, 2018Tomlin needs to be fired! He wants to be the players friend not their coach. Watching this team deteriorate from a perenial playoff contender to a laughing stock is painful. Fire tomlin now!!! Mike Mc Carthy is available and would be a good fit. Better yet bring back Bill Cowher!— The reaper (@Grimm213R) December 10, 2018Wild Ben Rothlisberger let the Raiders beat him to a pulp! The kicker is a joke and the entire defense looks like a carnival act. FIRE TOMLIN, HIRE MCCARTHY, how stupid can management be. Face it, Steelers are washed up and blew it AGAIN😨— LeeRoy (@LeeRoy23850929) December 10, 2018However, other fans were reluctant to embrace the McCarthy-for-Tomlin swap, with some noting the similarities between the two coaches in terms of career records (Tomlin is 123-65-1, McCarthy is 125-77-2). And, fairly or unfairly, both coaches have been criticized for only winning one Super Bowl despite perenially talented rosters featuring All-Pro franchise quarterbacks. Steelers fans need to do two things before screaming for Mike McCarthy.1. Look at his résumé, which is incredibly similar to Mike Tomlin’s.2. Talk to a Packers fan. Packers fans felt the same way about him before he was fired as some Steelers fans feel about Tomlin now.— Mike J. Asti (@MikeAsti11) December 10, 2018Wild to me that Steelers fans want Mike Tomlin fired and are lobbying for him to be replaced by Mike McCarthy of all people— Brian Walker (@BRNWalker) December 10, 2018The Steelers (7-5-1) are still in first place in the AFC North, just ahead of the Ravens (7-6) and two games ahead of the Browns (5-7-1). But their remaining schedule is tough. They host the Patriots next week, then are on the road at New Orleans, before finishing at home against the Bengals. FiveThirtyEight.com’s playoff calculator gives them a 62 percent chance of making the postseason and 56 percent chance of winning their division.last_img
