It looks like Mike Tomlin of the Steelers was furious when he responded to Peter King’s pessimistic view of the 2022 season

Pittsburgh Steelers Coach, Mike Tomlin Heading into his 16th NFL season as the captain of the Black and Gold races. He has never faced a losing season during his term and has not entered any season without him Ben Roethlisberger As the starting quarterback. Join Tomlin Peter King From NBC Sports This week to discuss the Steelers and the team’s prospects for the 2022 season.

“15 years as head coach, there has never been a losing season,” King told Tomlin. “A lot of people wonder how good this team is. Could this be the first year you don’t win that much?”

King, formerly Sports Illustrated who may be known for his popularity Monday morning quarterback Column, claims Tomlin is in a normal position who resented his line of questioning. The media is laser focused on the uncertainty over the Midfielder’s position for the Steelers and how Tomlin will handle the final starter nomination. According to King, the veteran coach responded visibly annoyed:

“You hope we’re mean? Bring him, bring him. Quote me.”

The National Sportswriter of the Year has been surprised three times by Tomlin’s stance on the questions surrounding the 2022 Steelers race and how he will perform when the season begins. The Pittsburgh coach is usually very measured in his responses to questions from the media. According to King’s weekly column, Tomlin explained the philosophy he would use to unite this team.

“I’m not really seeking the comfort of a veteran group,” Tomlin said. “I approach building a team the same way every year. That’s how I wired. I understand the question, but it’s not just my style.”

Tomlin has been winning the press conference for 15 years he’s been leading the team. Nobody is more direct and open with the media than the Pittsburgh head coach. His performance on the podium has led to the emergence of many “Tomlinisms”. Well-known eloquent comments spread across the country and became part of the fabric of the Steelers organization. He was loved in the media for most of his tenure and was prominently quoted.

Mike Florio And the Phil Sims Presentation of the interview in the Wednesday edition of Professional football debate when they were discussing Brian Flores and the punishment meet her to Miami Dolphin From the NFL this week. After the duo credited the Steelers for having the integrity to hire Flores as a defensive assistant during the operation, they voiced their own opinions on King’s interview with Tomlin.

“Go ahead and sleep on the Steelers, they’ve got Mike Tomlin and Brian Flores,” Florio said. “Anytime they are seen as not being that good, then they end up having a great year. Peter King resented Mike Tomlin and got angry at him and said, ‘Bring him.’ They thrive on it; the whole organization does.”

King, also known as a powerful medium in determining Hall of Fame finalists, may be exaggerating or mistaken for the severity of the annoyance. The only time I can remember Tomlin’s annoyance at a press conference is when he was asked if he had an interest in USC Trojans Head of Training position. Tomlin looked prepared from his opening press conference at his training camp to deal with the uncertainty and adversity the Steelers will face this season, so it seems unnatural for him to fall short with the veteran sportswriter.

“100 percent,” Simms replied. “They have a lot of bad guys out there. I mean it in a way that they are the love Fighting. They enjoy criticism. It’s a real thing in Pittsburgh. I tested it, and saw Mike Tomlin when he was one of our defensive coaches in Tampa, and he makes it work. He becomes a better leader and a better motivator when he is put into that corner.”

Perhaps King pressed Tomlin’s last nerve with an interrogation line. Virtually every pundit, including the Las Vegas odds makers, predict the Steelers won’t have a winning record and finish in the North Asian vault. Pittsburgh Stadium will play its first pre-season game on August 13th against Seattle Seahawks who are also participating in the quarterback competition. Probably Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph And the Kenny Beckett It will appear, but it is doubtful that the first pre-season game will affect the depth scheme permanently.

Tomlin will need every ounce of his will to remain patient with the endless supply of the same questions until they announce the start of the opening day vs. Cincinnati Bengals. If frustration fuels the fire to prove everyone wrong, Florio may be right about the money and the Steelers It could have a special season in 2022.
