Welcome to the Steelers Afternoon Drive, our new daily podcast featuring all the latest Steelers news.
Alan Saunders and Zachary Smith are back to discuss all things Pittsburgh Steelers. The team’s season came to an end on Wild Card Weekend, following a 31-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Despite getting Minkah Fitzpatrick and Damontae Kazee back in the fold, they provided little resistance to Josh Allen and the Bills passing attack early on and he and James Cook made enough plays on the ground in this one. No TJ Watt proved to be as big of a deal as you’d expect it to be. Mason Rudolph and the Steelers offense did mount a comeback of sorts, getting it to a 7-point deficit at one point, despite trailing 21-0 early. It just wasn’t enough to knock off a superior Bills team. Mike Tomlin was asked…well almost asked about his future with one year remaining on his contract, but walked off the podium before the question was finished. What do we make of this? Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported Mike Tomlin has already told his team he will be back in 2024 and there’s no truth to the outside noise. Let us know how you feel about that in the comments! Let’s go for another Steelers Afternoon Drive!
