The Steelers ended their 2023 season in snowy Buffalo with a 31-17 wildcard playoff loss. Except for diehard, eternally optimistic Steelers fans, not may expected a different outcome. So, what now?
Well, conversations about Mike Tomlin's coaching future are louder than ever and the fact that he has had 17-straight non-losing seasons doesn't carry as much weight as it use to-nor should it. Although he has one year left on his deal, realistically it may be time for him and the franchise to move on.
As a city, Pittsburgh is not the most exciting place to be, yet it can grow on you and no doubt it has on Tomlin. He probably even feels awkward thinking about leaving its coziness and coaching somewhere else. But, with so many NFL jobs currently open and fan bases clamoring for a coach like him, Tomlin should strongly consider removing the Black and Gold cloak. Maybe he would fly higher as an Atlanta Falcon, become a better general as a Washington Commander or look good in Silver and Black as a Las Vegas Raider. Of course if the latter happened he would never be forgiven.
There is life outside the fishbowl of Pittsburgh and Tomlin should flop out and go somewhere where he can spread his gills and breathe a bit easier.
But that will have to wait at least one more year because he's already announced he's returning for his 18th campaign.
The AFC road to the Super Bowl goes through Baltimore where the Ravens are going to be a tough out. After a week off they get back to work this weekend when they host the feisty Houston Texans. It will be interesting to see if they can rattle the calm presence Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud.
Cleveland joined Dallas and Philadelphia as surprising first-round playoff losers. Quarterback Joe Flacco's resurgence came to a resounding end with two interceptions including a pick six in the Texans 45-14 drubbing. Now, it's back to the drawing board and the Browns are hoping a healthy DeShaun Watson can return to being the player he was when "he" was the creme' de la creme' of Houston.
Who Dey done for the season! Get well Joe Burrow! Dey need you!
