The Pittsburgh Steelers have a storied history with their head coaches. However, not everything has been memorable under Mike Tomlin.
Despite what anyone in Steelers Nation may or may not think about Mike Tomlin, the Steelers are awfully lucky. Consistency at head coach has not been an issue since 1968. No other franchise can boast to anything of the sort.
In Mike Tomlin, the Steelers have a coach who boasts a 125-66-1 regular season record, two Super Bowl appearances, and the sixth Lombardi trophy on display on the South Side in Pittsburgh. This puts Tomlin in elite company.
Tomlin, however, does comes with some warranted criticism. Some question his replay wits or his ability to manage the clock late in games. It’s up for debate on just how much blame falls on Tomlin for the locker room issues that have transpired over the past few years.
Either way you cut it, the Steelers have their coach in Mike Tomlin. He’s not going anywhere. 2019 will be a season that only solidifies his grasp on the clipboard or puts him in the hot seat.
The Mike Tomlin era has left us with some amazing memories and moments. The majority of them have been closer to the beginning of his tenure, but there have still been some great moments in recent years.
We are focusing today on the games that aren’t easy to remember. Some of you may have even blocked them out.
Not all of these games mentioned are ranked because of Tomlin’s fallacies in those games (although there will be some of those). Some of these games are just hard to remember because they’re heartbreaking. Maybe if one thing swung another way, the end result would have been much different.
