By Brandon J. Wallace


There was a lot to discuss Tuesday as Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin addressed the media in his weekly press conference. From injury updates, Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the upcoming battle against the Los Angeles Chargers, and coaching change rumors, Tomlin spoke to it all.

“Field positioning early, the turnover game, and the subsequent drives,” were the main issues Tomlin thought ultimately led to the loss vs. Baltimore.

He further went on regarding injuries:

With Samuels out, look to see more of rookie running back, Benny Snell Jr. in the backfield to spell starter, James Conner against the Chargers.

Tomlin further went onto express his excitement in facing Philip Rivers and the challenge that he brings at the quarterback position.

In regards to rumors involving the Washington Redskins seeking to obtain coach Tomlin as their head coach, Tomlin said:

“I’m not worried about that, to be quite honest with you.” Tomlin went on. “I’m the head coach of a 1-4 football team that’s going on the road to play a Hall of Fame-caliber quarterback with my third quarterback. Do you think I’m worried about anything this week other than that?”
