Twitter Overreaction Time: These Steelers Fans Want To Fire Mike Tomlin
Good news, Ravens fans. Week one sucked for the entire AFC North. Even though the Ravens got embarrassed on national television on Thursday night, they’re still tied for first place in the division.
Woohoo! Break out the champagne.
Meanwhile, in the Steel City, the Pittsburgh Steelers opened their season with a 16-9 loss to the lowly Tennessee Titans. If you thought the overreaction was bad in Baltimore after watching the Ravens get pounded in Denver — well, you were wrong.
It wasn’t nearly this bad:

Fire Mike Tomlin! Another season with no line, no running game & too many penalties. Cant live off Cowher's leftovers anymore. #SNF

I love Mike Tomlin Steelers coach but his time is up, I know we don't fire coaches there, and this is not a knee jerk reaction#Its time

The intention of this post wasn’t to single out Steelers fans per se, it was more intended to show just how quickly a group of people can overreact to one bad game. Clearly they didn’t watch Olbermann on Friday.
