Tomlin’s list of regular-season accomplishments is impressive, but he has not won a Super Bowl since 2008, and hasn’t won a playoff game since 2016, leaving Pittsburgh fans with angst toward their probable Hall of Fame head coach.
“Yes, Pittsburgh Steelers fans want more recent postseason success but 16 seasons without a losing record is crazy impressive, especially when you consider the manner in which they’ve done it the last few years,” Tucker wrote.
The rest of the top 10 included Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton, Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers, Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants coach Brian Daboll, Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks and Doug Pederson of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The other three AFC North head coaches fared poorly in the power rankings, with Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh 11th, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor 12th and Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski 23rd.
