I have been a critic of Mike Tomlin over the years for many things, but I will sing his praises this week. He could have let the team get off-track against the Bengals and completely fall apart. At one point during the game I was thinking that this very article may be how the Steelers were in danger of not only losing the number one seed, but perhaps the division as well. I was beginning to envision the start of a three-game slide. I was wrong, and I have to credit Tomlin for that. He was able to maintain the focus of his troops and truly lead them to the victory. There is no quit in him and his team reflects that.
Now, on a short week, he needs to maintain that resolve and focus and navigate this team to another victory in primetime against another hard-hitting AFC North opponent who is also battling for a playoff spot.
The Ravens are on almost as good of a roll as Pittsburgh is, especially with scoring 44 points in their last game against the Lions, Dec. 3. But one thing I think I’ll realize this week—should the Steelers fall behind early, or even late, they will still have a fighting chance to win, as there is no quit in this team.
