As previously mentioned Sunday morning, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is currently back in Virginia this weekend helping out in the annual Hampton Roads Youth Foundation Football Camp at Christopher Newport University. Over the course of the last several years, Tomlin has been good about sitting down for a one-on-one interview with Bruce Radar of WAVY-TV when he is in the area and this year was no different.
Radar first asked Tomlin about the state of the Steelers offense headed into the 2015 season.
“We feel good about it,” said Tomlin. “We’re going to have our challenges, obviously – adversity, some of it created by us, like in the [Le’Veon] Bell instance, but I like the way the team is working. I like the overall togetherness and really, I’m just excited about going to Latrobe and getting started.”
Radar reminded Tomlin of all of the offensive weapons that the Steelers currently have and then stated that it should be high-powered again this season.
“It should be,” said Tomlin. “Just based on the weapons that we’ve had and some of things they’ve been able to do together is exciting.”
So what does Tomlin think about his young defense headed into 2015 now that he has lost several veterans and has changed defensive coordinators?
“Young and defense are two things that I like,” said Tomlin. “That’s not a change that you fear. We’ve got some guys that are working really hard and really talented. Unproven, yes, but that’s why we play the game. I’ve been excited about watching them work and I look forward to watching them grow and grow together.”
