Pittsburgh Steelers: Is Mike Tomlin in the hot seat?
July 21, 2013 by Tyler Jeski
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin
The Pittsburgh Steelers are going into their seventh year under head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin and the Steelers finished last season 8-8 and are heading into this season with many questions. One of the biggest questions swirling is in regards to the Steelersí head coach and his job security.
The 41-year-old Tomlin has led the Steelers to two Super Bowls, winning one and losing the second, and has led the Steelers to the playoffs every season except two, including this past season.
I would say right now Tomlin is not on the hot seat, but that could easily change.
In Pittsburgh, the Steelers are always expected to win and when they donít itís obvious. The Steelers were very disappointing last season after starting 6-3 and then collapsing to lose five of their last seven games including a three-game losing streak that crushed their hopes of making the playoffs. And after each loss we heard Tomlin give almost the same speech every time, ďWe know what we did wrong and itís up to us to fix it.Ē Unfortunately the Steelers were unable to fix their problems: the defense could not create turnovers, the offense could not score points, and it seemed like the team was crashing and burning.
This season could be the deciding year for Tomlin; if he is able to sturdy the rocking ship and guide the Steelers back to success then there should be no problems in Pittsburgh. But if the Steelers have another season like last year where the running game was nonexistent and the quarterback and offensive coordinator have to be separated on the sideline then there is a strong possibility for change in Pittsburgh.
The key for a successful Steeler season is simple; they need to play Steeler football. They need to run the ball successfully which will take pressure off of their star quarterback. And they need to get after the quarterback and force takeaways on defense. If that happens then it should be a good year in Pittsburgh and for Mike Tomlin.

I would lose my ever-loving mind if Coach Tomlin popped into a bar I was at and bought everybody a round.

This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
