With a career 64% win percentage, as well as two Super Bowl appearances and one title while head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Tomlin has begun to carve his name alongside the list of great coaches of our era.
Regardless of success, one will always have detractors.
Enter Terry Bradshaw, legendary four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers and NFL Legend.

Pulling no punches, Bradshaw states that he thinks Tomlin is a “great cheerleader guy” but that he doesn’t know “what he does” and that he isn’t a “great coach at all, his name never even pops in my mind when we think of great coaches in the NFL.”
Bradshaw went on to say that he believed Tomlin-predecessor Bill Cowher was a great coach, more so than Tomlin.
In the same clip, Jason Whitlock also goes all in blasting Tomlin, questioning his decision making and ability to thrive in the “greatest organization” in the league.
This attack is rather shocking, considering Tomlin has the highest win percentage of any Pittsburgh Steeler head coach in team history, including Terry Bradshaw’s “great” coach, Chuck Noll, and Cowher.
