Tomlin’s Tuesday Take – 12/24/19

By Brandon J. Wallace


Just when we thought the Pittsburgh Steelers were getting relatively healthy at the right time, the boys in black and gold got pretty beat up again in Week 16 vs. the New York Jets.

QB Devlin “Duck” Hodges will get his sixth career start come Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens (who plan to rest several starters). His backup will be former first round draft pick, Paxton Lynch. Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin expressed his concerns on Lynch’s readiness, but emphasized that “the standard is the standard,” and it’s always a “next man up” mentality.

“What we’re focused on is the things that our in our control,” Tomlin said. “We’ll see where we are when the dust settles.”
