Believe it or not...

Tomlin is currently 12th overall in coaching win % at 36-18 (0.667).  That's ahead of #23 Belichick (153-93, 0.622), #26 Reid (112-70, 0.615), #32 Shanahan (150-101, 0.598), #35 Sean Payton (41-29, 0.592) and #36 Mike McCarthy (41-29, 0.592).

(This appears to count only regular season games...)

Granted, that's a small sample size for Tomlin, Payton, and McCarthy, but still.

A win versus the Saints jumps Tomlin ahead of Paul Brown and Tony fucking Dungy to #10, 0.673.

He is doing well.  Ill give him that.  And I love the guy.  Tomlin is as cool as the other side of the pillow.  But he walked into a perfect situation.  I mean, 2 years before he showed up they won a SB for Gods sake!  And yes he kept it going, but lets cool our heels before any comparison to a Knoll, Lombardi, or Walsh.

Not saying all that.  I have my criticisms of MT, but hope that he learns from his mistakes.
