With the Pittsburgh Steelers' tough loss in Week 14, it appears the wheels are starting to fall off the wagon in Pittsburgh. An injury to Ben Roethlisberger put them in a bad position, but it's still no excuse for the team's three-game losing streak. Tomlin will finish out the season, but unless the Steelers make a deep postseason run, his time in Pittsburgh might be over. Here are the three best fits as replacements for Tomlin in Pittsburgh. 


Josh McDaniels

The Steelers' offense is already functioning well. Imagine how good it would be with one of the brightest offensive minds in the game at the helm? This would not only be huge for Pittsburgh, but it would hurt New England in the process. A win-win would be nice for the Steelers. 

Mike McCarthy

McCarthy may not have left the Green Bay Packers on the best terms, but you need to remember the success he had over the years there. He had 125 wins over 13 seasons, eight years with 10-plus wins, six NFC North titles, and one Super Bowl victory. The Steelers need a coach who is going to help them win now and McCarthy certainly has the track record to back that up.

Bruce Arians

A reunion with Bruce Arians could be perfect for the Steelers. Tomlin has shown that he struggles to control the locker room and Arians could be the fix they need. He's a no-nonsense-type coach with a history of winning. If he'd be willing to come out of retirement and have a chance to win now, this could be the best fit for Pittsburgh.
