Mike Tomlin’s Job Could be in Danger if Steelers Coach Doesn’t Get a Clue Soon
Everyone is used to Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin getting testy when his team fails to perform on Sundays, but now things are different. The Steelers are 0-4 for the first time since 1968 and they looked absolutely awful in a loss to the previously-winless Minnesota Vikings in London this weekend. Tomlin’s response was a typical grumpy rant about how his team isn’t playing Steelers football, but this dude is starting to show his true colors.
“Steelers football” is a loose term used by weak football minds in Pittsburgh to describe a team based around a smash mouth running game and a stifling, play-making defense. The problem is the 2013 Steelers don’t have the right personnel or the talent to play that style of football, and it’s becoming more and more apparent that Tomlin doesn’t understand that.
Now Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is likely to get the boot first just because that’s the way politics work in the NFL, but Tomlin is showing his inability to coach a team that isn’t already a Super Bowl contender, which was the case when he took over in Pittsburgh following Bill Cowher‘s retirement. However, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert will eventually figure it out and that process will be expedited if Pittsburgh is still winless at the midway point of the season. In other words, Tomlin better start getting his house ready for sale.
