Mike Tomlin is the first NFL coach to reach 15 consecutive winning seasons in 15 years
Do you know what being a successful coach in the NFL gets you? It constantly puts you on the hot seat and brings constant criticism. We’ve seen this in New England with Bill Belichick, especially after Tom Brady left. We’ve begun to see this in New Orleans as Sean Payton coaches his way through a season where he’s missing his starting quarterback and top receiver. One place we’ve seen all too often is in Pittsburgh. The Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns Monday night, and with that victory Mike Tomlin now has 15 straight seasons with a winning record. It’s time to start putting respect on Mike Tomlin’s name. Tomlin has gone through his career fostering big ego’s and problem children like Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Le’Veon Bell, and countless others. He’s a players coach who still demands respect and discipline. He’s nurtured some of the best defensive players in the game, and he’s a Super Bowl champion.
