Pittsburgh Steelers schedule: Mike Tomlin misses playoffs, heads into offseason

Pittsburgh Steelers schedule

Pittsburgh Steelers schedule: Offseason

Despite going 9-8, including a four-game winning streak to end the year, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season is over. While Mike Tomlin managed to avoid the first losing season of his NFL coaching career, it’s the first time the team has missed the playoffs since 2019.

Pittsburgh Steelers roster outlook

  • QBKenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph
  • RB – Najee Harris, Benny Snell Jr, Jaylen Warren
  • WR – Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Calvin Austin III, Myles Boykin, Gunner Olszewski, Steven Sims
  • TE – Pat Freiermuth, Zach Gentry, Connor Hayward

Future Hall of Fame selection Ben Roethlisberger is gone and while he might not be happy about it, the right decision was made. Early expectations were Mitch Trubisky will be the Pittsburgh Steelers’ starting quarterback in Week 1, entering the summer with experience and momentum. However, Rookie first-round pick Kenny Pickett took over the top spot in Week 5.

At running back, it will be the Najee Harris show once again. He served as the workhorse (307 carries) in his rookie season and played extremely well. Pittsburgh hopes an improved offensive line and a more athletic quarterback make things even easier for the second-year rusher.

There is also plenty of excitement about the receiving corps. Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool already complemented one another nicely. Now, rookie George Pickens enters the mix. He profiles nicely as a No. 3 receiver immediately and could step up as the No. 2 wideout next season.

Defensively, we’re not expecting greatness. Pittsburgh’s front seven should be healthy in 2022 and that offers room for improvement. However, concerns in the secondary give us serious pause when evaluating this unit compared to the top-10 defenses in the NFL.
