The season hasn’t gone as planned for the normally competitive Pittsburgh Steelers. Their 2-6 record has been a product of many problems, but after they had 55 points and better than 600 yards hung on them by the New England Patriots to set a franchise worst, Tomlin threatened to bench any player who weren’t bringing the necessary effort.
“Those people who are lacking effort won’t be playing,” Tomlin said after Sunday’s loss. “It’s just that simple. I am angry, disappointed.”
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, this is the second time in five weeks that Tomlin has threatened to sit players who were underperforming.
One of the few bright spots for Pittsburgh was Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 400 yards and went almost blow for blow with New England’s Tom Brady, who threw for 432 yards.
