Mike Tomlin on Steelers’ fans: ‘I share their frustration’

The Steelers were nearly booed out of their own building during their loss to the Patriots last Thursday

NFL: New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Following consecutive losses to 2-10 teams, it’s safe to say that the majority of Steelers’ fans are incredibly irritated with the team’s play.

After their loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday, Pittsburgh became the first team in NFL history to lose back to back games to 2-10 teams, while currently maintaining a record over .500. Yikes.

When asked about the disgruntled fans, Tomlin said “I share their frustration.”

A chorus of boos rained down on the black and gold at Acrisure stadium in their loss against New England team that hadn’t scored more than seven points in three consecutive games - all losses.

Steelers’ QB Mitch Trubisky was met with “Mason Rudolph” chants after struggling in the first half - a cry from fans to play the backup QB.

These chants erupted after Trubisky threw a critical interception to Patriots S Jabrill Peppers in the first quarter that led to a New England touchdown, pushing their lead to 14-7.

The Steelers will travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts this Saturday in what basically amounts to a must-win game if they want to stay alive in the AFC playoff race.
