I know his team played hard and did a good job, but he blew the call to go for 2 points from the 12-yard line. I don't argue with going for it from the 2, Tomlin refered to "the chart", it's usually pretty reliable. But you don't go for it on 4th and Goal from the 12 in a similar situation, so don't go for 2 there. Terrible decision that ultimately cost them the game.

If the kicker would have missed the extra point instead of Tomlin not getting the 2 point conversion, everyone would have blamed him for the loss, so why not the coach?

I saw Bill Cowher critcizing Tomlin about the call, and I was surprised. I thought it would be a touchy subject, but he was absolutely right.
