Is this good or bad? I honestly can't tell anymore. I feel like the Steelers could use a fresh start, but maybe that is just me. 

I think the fresh start will be post Ben. I want to see how Tomlin coaches without Ben. He's the only holdover from the Cowher era.

As a division rival, I'm not screaming and cursing right now. I'm not like over the moon happy but the Steelers have pretty consistently under-achieved with him at the helm the last decade IMO so this doesn't exactly strike fear into my heart as a Ravens fan.

Take that for what it's worth I guess. Not trying to get into a flame-war about Tomlin's rank in the league either so anyone who's thinking about going back and forth with my opinion of Tomlin...I'm not doing it lol.

Definitely a polarizing guy

The problem is that Cowher didn’t get enough time with Ben.  
 

Tomlin inherited most of Cowher’s drafted players.  
 

Tomlin should feel lucky that he had Ben for all those years, because if he didn’t, he surely wouldn’t be where he is today.

This is my take as well.

Good coach, not a great one.

You know this for a fact? He could have been a lot better without Ben too.

Well, you can take a look at the QB's Mike Tomlin has drafted during his tenure to get an idea of what he would have tried to do at the QB position if he wasn't gifted a franchise guy from the start of it.

Hard disagree. Tomlin has never taken a 1st round QB. We don't know how he's drafted QBs, other than backups.

According to Mike, they had a first round grade on Mason Rudolph.

Mike benefited from having Ben(all coaches benefit from having a franchise QB), but its not like Ben has been putting out great postseason games lately...
