Coach Tomlin: Obviously a disappointing opener. Enough misery to go around in all three phases. Unacceptable performance. I won’t accept it. This team better not accept it. We’ve got some work to do. We sustained some injuries in the game but really not an excuse. The guys that played had opportunities, and we didn’t play well enough. We didn’t coach well enough. On the injury front, Shaun Suisham injured his hamstring in the pregame. He was able to get through today. We’ll see what that holds. Maurkice Pouncey injured his MCL and his ACL. Obviously, he’ll be facing a surgery.
[LaRod] Stephens-Howling had a knee injury. He’s being evaluated via the MRI. Cortez Allen had a right ankle sprain and Larry Foote ruptured his bicep. Of course, that will require surgery as well. Those that played, not good enough. We won‘t accept it. We turned the ball over, particularly in the red area. That’s a significant swing. They were able to run the ball at times on us, particularly in that red area...
BEST OF MAXIM
Mike Tomlin is a no nonsense head coach and likes to keep things simple.
Tomlin finally joined Twitter nation earlier this summer, and The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review notes that Tomlin follows a strict 53-man roster on Twitter.
When the Steelers trimmed down their roster down from 75 players to 53 over the weekend, Tomlin also cut those players from his Twitter follow list.
Season 4, Episode 18 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I certainly have a lot to talk about following the Pittsburgh Steelers season opening loss Sunday to the Tennessee Titans. We start things off by recapping the injuries and the roster moves that are forthcoming as a result.
As far as the game goes, David and I recap what happened on both sides of the ball...

It was the first time head coach Mike Tomlin looked rattled. He carries himself like a proud lion. Brave, strong, and fearless in the face of adversity. This past weekend after the Pittsburgh Steelers lost 16-9 at home against the Tennessee Titans a team many expected the Steelers to beat convincingly, there was a different Coach Tomlin at the podium. It seemed he ...
Despite only rushing for nine yards on eight carries in the Sunday season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman might just make a second straight start Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
"Obviously, he played a bad game, a lot of us did," said Tomlin when asked if he still has confidence in Redman, who fumbled twice...
With starting center Maurkice Pouncey now out for the season with a knee injury, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday during his press conference that the plan right now is to start second-year offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum at center Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
"As we prepare right now, Beachum is going to be our starting center and we...
The Pittsburgh Steelers decisive 16-9 loss today against the Tennessee Titans is all the proof we need that this team is not the dominating Steelers team we’ve come to know. Mike Tomlin tried to convince the media that last year was just a down year and they would bounce back this season, but that looks highly unlikely after an appalling performance offensively.
To make matters...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference Tuesday and updated the health of the team following his opening statement.
Tomlin said center Maurkice Pouncey (knee) is scheduled for surgery Thursday after tearing both his ACL and MCL in the season opener. Inside linebacker Larry Foote (biceps) had surgery Tuesday morning, while running back LaRod Stephens...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu timed the snap perfect to sack Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker on Sunday. Via SBNation.com: The post Watch: Troy Polamalu perfectly times Titans snap count, sacks Jake Locker appeared first on Sports Glory.
Mike Tomlin stressed to Jonathan Dwyer when the coach cut the Pittsburgh Steelers running back 10 days ago that the decision to release the team's leading rusher in 2012 was not a personal one.
''We kept the guys that we kept because of the things they did, not because of the things Jonathan didn't do,'' Tomlin said.
No hard feelings, apparently.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin told reporters on Tuesday that they intend to stick with Isaac Redman as their starting running back for Monday night’s game against the Bengals.
“Obviously he played a bad game,” Tomlin said, via ESPN.com. “He’ll be given an opportunity to redeem himself.”
Redman’s performance Sunday was not only discouraging, but the loss of LaRod Stephens...
Isaac Redman was named the starting running back today by Mike Tomlin. Redman had a rough week last week, he fumbled twice and picked up eight yards on nine carries before getting benched. “Obviously he played a bad game,” Tomlin said Tuesday. “He’ll be given an opportunity to redeem himself.” With LaRod Stephens-Howling (knee) out […]

It’s agonizingly difficult to find a silver lining in Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans, and even upon an extremely close analysis, there may only be a thread of optimism that can be found, and that is in the fact that there are still 15 games left to play.
An effort can made to minimize the loss, but it was a home game season opener in which...
