I'm surprised he didn't just assume the answer was "under 30." Good on him for continuing to ask.

Proves what many of us have been saying for years - Tomlin eases into the game and then does just enough to win.

Most other teams get a lead and want to keep scoring points. Tomlin & Co. immediately revert to shortening the game and playing attrition football.

We are doomed with this guy. Tomlin has never been the guy to pursue greatness. He's secret power is being just a tad bit better than mediocre. In the regular season.

The following is from the Steelers website this morning.

Since 1970, only four head coaches who have coached at least 100 games have more than Tomlin's 98 wins in one-score games. And those coaches – Bill Belichick (120 wins), Andy Reid (110), Don Shula (106) and Dan Reeves (105) – all have coached far longer than Tomlin.

Even more impressive is Tomlin's career winning percentage in one-score games. Tomlin has compiled a 98-61-2 record in one-score games, a winning percentage of .615 that is the highest in the NFL, tied with Tony Dungy for that honor.

Just behind him are Shula (.612), Marty Schottenheimer (.597) and Bud Grant (.596).

Tomlin's record in one-score games is even more impressive when things are broken down since the 2007 season.

His 98 wins in one-score games in that time are 20 more than Reid, 27 more than John Harbaugh and 29 more than Belichick.

And lest anyone think those other coaches haven't had as many opportunities, that's not the case. For example, since 2007, Belichick is 69-50 in one-score games, a .580 winning percentage, while Reid is 78-67-1, a winning percentage of .538.

So according to Aditi, Haley asks Tomlin how close he wants the score, and then can plan it so well that those games are close.

I have a bridge for sale for anyone who believes that is true.

Man its been a long, Hellish nightmare of a road since Haley left.

Seems like a lifetime.
