Should Mike Tomlin be on the hot seat after a cold start to 2018?

Some Steelers fans think the clock has started to tick on Mike Tomlin’s tenure in Pittsburgh barring a quick turn around.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ start to the 2018 regular season has been rocky, at best. Their 1-2-1 first quarter has the vast fan base fuming. How angry? To the point many believe head coach Mike Tomlin should be considered to be on the proverbial ‘hot seat’.

In a recent poll of those Steelers fans who have signed up to be a part of our FanPulse team, over 50 percent of the most tuned-in fanatics believe Tomlin should be worried about his job status if things don’t turn around in a timely fashion.

Clearly, by looking at the image above, you see while this is a majority of fans who believe Tomlin is on the hot seat, it isn’t a vast majority who believe Tomlin’s seat should be heating up. Also, being put on the ‘hot seat’ does not mean they believe Tomlin should be fired. It essentially just means there is some stress coming his way, and the possibility of a repeat performance after this season could equate to a change at head coach.

So, what do you think? Should Mike Tomlin be concerned, and be considered on the ‘hot seat’ heading into the second quarter of the season?
