The Steelers have long been one of the most stable franchises in the NFL, but the team has become a circus with Antonio Brown discussing being traded on Twitter, and the team struggling in the first two weeks of the season with an 0-1-1 record. Last season, Ben Roethlisberger publicly questioned Tomlin in the media over the team’s lack of discipline.
Colin thinks Mike Tomlin is a good coach, but his loose, player friendly culture is the root cause of the growing dysfunction.
When Tomlin was hired, he rode the momentum from the Bill Cowher era to two Super Bowl appearances and a championship, but the team has progressively declined, especially in the playoffs, in the last several years as the momentum has dissipated.
Now the circus is in town, and it’s on Tomlin.
“As the momentum of Cowher has dissipated and it’s now Mike Tomlin’s team, the offensive stars are calling out Tomlin because his side of the ball isn’t working.”@ColinCowherd on the “circus” surrounding the Steelers pic.twitter.com/4bbXt1e9uj
