Has Steelers HC Mike Tomlin had a bad season in his career?

The Pittsburgh Steelers is one of the most successful NFL franchises in league history. However, Pittsburgh has a slow start to the 2022 season, losing four games in a row after winning its opening season last season. Cincinnati Bengals during overtime. The start of the season could jeopardize head coach Mike Tomlin and his long-term record.

Since taking over as the Steelers head coach in 2006, Tomlin has never had a losing season, which is remarkable. He led the team into the post-season for 10 of his first 15 full seasons on the sidelines. Only in his second season in the league in the 2008 season did he get his first win Super Bowl and sixth overall of the franchise. In total, Tomlin has a record of 115 – 89 – 1 in 5 games in the 2022 season.


Of his unbeaten seasons, nine of which have been seasons with more than 10 wins, the most recent being in the 2020 season with a 12-4 record. However, there are some who claim that the franchise has had a losing season.

The last time the Steelers finished an under 500 season under Hall of Fame head coach BIll Cowher was in the 2003 season. That season, they finished with a 6 – 10 record. Tomlin started Mitchell Trubiskywhom the team signed this season, to replace Ben Roethlisbergerretired person after 18 seasons with the team.

However, Tomlin reached out to rookie Kenny Pickett, their first-round draft pick, to replace Trubisky.


For Tomlin to keep up his incredible losing streak, that will rest on Pickett’s shoulders and his signature defence playing well. Pittsburgh will have to get to 500 soon. Let’s see if Tomlin can turn the Steelers over and claim at least nine wins this season, proving he is the right coach for this team.
