Last week, concussion-ridden jack-o-lantern with curious sentience Terry Bradshaw stated that Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was a "nice" coach and "great cheerleader" but not a great coach. This, of course, is the same Tomlin who's amassed a 102–57 record in his 10 years with the Steelers, is the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl, and even today is still the fifth youngest head coach in any of the four major North American professional sports.

But since Darth Deliverance brought it up, I guess a quiz is necessary. Is Mike Tomlin a great coach?

Your choices are below.

A) Yes

B) Terry Bradshaw can go fuck a goat. And not even a horny goat. A goat that's, like, really tired from a day's worth of goating, and needs a half hour of foreplay to warm up. Basically, Terry Bradshaw can go fuck a goat that would rather watch Westworld and go to bed early.


C) Why are the qualifications, merits, and acuities of a man with one of the best resumes in NFL coaching history always up for debate? I mean, I know why — and I know you know why toobut the question still must be asked, if even rhetorically.

D) All of the above
