After the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football, Brooke Pryor from ESPN Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin asked if he would consider making a midfield change – or playing the caller – during the upcoming minibye.

“I’m not in that mindset. I’m interested in reviewing this tape and looking at its entirety and how we’re improving collectively. The answer to that question is: Absolutely not,” he said as he presided over Press conference after the match.

This appears to be a clear indication that Tomlin plans to continue to be patient as the Steelers offense develops. And that Pittsburgh quarterback Mitch Trubesky will remain the Pittsburgh quarterback when the team returns to play against the New York Jets at Acresor Stadium on October 2. Each of the team’s first three games, but has yet to see any regular season action.

Mike Tomlin on Mitch Trubesky: ‘I thought he did some plays’

On the other hand, Mike Tomlin explained that Mitch Trubesky – like the rest of the club – did not meet expectations during Thursday’s 29-17 loss, dropping the Steelers to 1-2 and lifting the Cleveland record to 2-1. .

Asked what he thought of Trubisky’s performance, Tomlin said, “I thought he did some plays but we all came up with underperformance, and that’s how we measure performance. Winning is our business and we haven’t taken the business. So we don’t take that apart and look for the feeling.” with happiness.”

Indeed, Trubisky had his moments against Cleveland, but in the end, his performance paled in comparison to that of Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who finished 21 of 31 for 220 yards with two touchdown passes, a good rating for the 109.6 passers-by. By comparison, Trubisky went 20 of 32 for 207 yards, with a pass rating of 81.1. He also rushed the ball twice for seven yards and touchdown.

Tomlin is not entirely encouraged by the advance in attack

The bottom line is that Pittsburgh’s offensive has only scored four points in three games, which has led to questions about the job security of Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada.

Tomlin’s answer referenced above seems to suggest that Canada’s job is safe, at least for the foreseeable future.

But again, a tiny bit of progress hasn’t been enough for the Steelers head coach, who has never lost a losing season in more than 15 years in the business, but could see the streak threatened this year.

Asked if he was “encouraged” with what he saw of the attack, especially in the first half, Tomlin said: “I wasn’t looking forward to cheering, I was looking forward to winning the match. And so I expect us to improve in all phases, so I don’t know I share that perspective.” .

Pittsburgh’s offensive will certainly need to improve in a hurry if the team is to hope to stay competitive in North Asia. After hosting the New York Jets in early October, the team’s schedule is getting tighter, with the rest of that month featuring road games in Buffalo, Miami and Philadelphia, along with a home game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in October. 16.
