Mike Tomlin is a man who knows talent when he sees it. It’s a huge reason why he has never had a losing record since being hired in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers coach had a telling message for Washington Football Team rookie Chase Young during the game on Monday night.
Tomlin approached the defensive lineman on the sideline and directly sang his praises, but in doing so, he basically took a shot at Washington being terrible in order to get him.
“I don’t ever want to lose enough games to get a guy like you,” Tomlin told Young. “You’ve got to lose 14, 15 games to get a guy who looks like you.”
The Washington Football Team selected Young out of Ohio State with the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The team had just lost 13 games to earn the right to select him.
