Podcast: Who is more to blame for the Steelers’ defensive woes? Mike Tomlin or Keith Butler?

The weak link for the Pittsburgh Steelers was by far the defense, but who is more to blame for their issues? Mike Tomlin or Keith Butler?

There is no guessing when it comes to what area of the Pittsburgh Steelers was the weakest link in 2018.

It was the defense.

But outside of the players on the field, where plenty of blame resides, you have to wonder who is more to blame for the issues on the defensive side of the football? Would it be head coach Mike Tomlin? Or defensive coordinator Keith Butler?

The easy way out in this debate would be to say they both have their hand in the defensive issues, but you have to dig deeper into the roles of each to know who is really to blame. While many still blame Tomlin for everything bad going on in Pittsburgh, Keith Butler was the man everyone wanted gone at season’s end.

Inquiring minds want to know the answer to this burning question, and this was the crux of the new podcast ‘Steelers Burning Question’ which aired last night on our YouTube channel.

In the podcast I go into greater detail on who who is to blame.

Plenty has to be deciphered here, and I lay it all out there for the listeners in the latest show...
