The Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach was mic’d up during the team’s Week 14 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and it was awesome.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were victorious in their Week 14 game vs. the Arizona Cardinals on the road, and while the team has moved on to the Buffalo Bills coming to Heinz Field in Week 15, fans can still look back and enjoy the last win.

There are several ways to enjoy the 23-16 win at State Farm Stadium. You can watch highlights. You can watch/listen to analysis. Or you could check out a video of Mike Tomlin mic’d up during the game.

I suggest you do the latter.

Check out the video, which was a part of Showtime’s Inside the NFL show:

Say what you want about Mike Tomlin, and most of you will, but the man wears his passion on his sleeve. He is almost as amped up for the game as the players on the field, and it shows.

Whether he is praising Devlin Hodges for his strong-armed throw to Diontae Johnson for the touchdown, or celebrating a Vince Williams sack of Kyler Murray, listening and watching Tomlin is pure gold.

There are two types of coaches in the NFL. Those who love the thrill of the game and are emotional on the sidelines, and those who don’t show emotion. I think it is clear which camp Tomlin falls into, but it doesn’t make one right or wrong. It’s just who he is as a coach.

Hope you enjoyed the video, and be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black-and-gold as they prepare for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football in Week 15 at Heinz Field.
