I'll save you the time. Franchise QBs don't hit UFA. The Steelers had what they had and Cowher's teams won a playoff game at least once in 8 out of 15 years while making it to 6 conference title games compared to Tomlin who won at least one playoff game 4 out of 14 years and advanced to 3 conference title games with a franchise QB.
Thanks. Sure they do. Alex Smith, Peyton, Brees? (or was he traded). I’ll be the first one to say Tomlin‘s teams need to win more playoff games. But also understand regardless of the ebb and flow of the games, the players decide on the field who wins or lose.
