For years, there’s been a battle between local and national media regarding Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. National media tend to praise Tomlin while using his ongoing run of non-losing seasons as evidence of his greatness. Local media usually to point to Tomlin’s lack of postseason success (among other things) in their argument that Tomlin isn’t as good as the rest of the country thinks.

What’s the truth? It probably lies somewhere in the middle. Yes, Tomlin deserves enormous credit for his consistency (which is truly peerless) and ability to churn out competitive teams. He also has a Super Bowl win and another appearance in the big game, in case you forgot.
