Sophomore Slump?

In Chuck Knoll's first year as head coach, the Steelers posted an impressively anemic 1-13 record. But in his second season, the team improved drastically slightly to 5-9.

In Bill Cowher's first year as head coach, the Steelers returned to the playoffs with an 11-5 record. But in his second season, the team's record dipped slightly to 9-7.

Current head coach Mike Tomlin's first season ended in the first round of the playoffs, after a 10-6 regular season. In Tomlin's second year as head coach, he faces the most difficult schedule (on paper) for ANY team in recent NFL history.

Will Tomlin suffer a case of the sophomore slump? What type of season/record would constitute labeling the Steelers 2008 season a slump? Is the concept of a sophomore slump ridiculous? What predictions do you have for the upcoming season?

I apologize for breaking the blogging rules of these internets with all of those links yesterday...so here are some more...

Word on the street is Cotter is returning tomorrow. So thanks for putting up with my b.s. for the past few days.

It'll be tough this year not only for Tomlin but for the team as a whole. I wouldn't worry too much about Tomlin though, our front office will have patience and understands how hard the schedule is. Hopefully we'll win 10 games again.

I'd put Megan Fox in a nude movie in a second, but the only catch is it'd also include me nude.
