Does Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin have his team ready for prime time? He better hope so, he also better hope he has a plan to protect his quarterback Ben Roethlisberger  when he travels to Paul Brown Stadium, in Cincinnati, OH.

This game will be on Monday night football, this is not only a divisional game to see who is going to control the AFC North, this is a game in which the Steelers have to avoid starting off the 2013 season at 0-2.

Team’s that start off the season at 0-2 only have a 12% chance at making the play-offs. Some Pittsburgh fans are wondering if this will be Mike Tomlin’s last season as the head coach. Those fans aren’t seeing Tomlin making things happen in Pittsburgh, they say he took a great team he inherited from former coach Bill Cowher, and ran it into the ground by making poor decisions.

There could be a lot of truth to that. Tomlin is doing the same thing Jon Gruden did with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gruden was handed a team that a great coach like Tony Dungy handed him and ran the team right into the ground.

Tomlin is learning he doesn’t have the same abilities as Cowher had. He has ran this Steelers team into the ground and he has failed to produce the kind of talent the Steelers need to stay contenders.

If the Steelers don’t win in Cincinnati this Monday night, how long can we expect Tomlin to remain on the Steelers side lines? Time is running out for him and no one can blame the organization if they made a change with regards to their head coach.

It isn’t Roehtlisberger’s fault his head coach picks the wrong people to be assistants. Tomlin is the main problem with the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers.  If they can’t beat the Bengals it may be time to fix the head coaching problems.
