PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Amidst a rash of injuries, the Pittsburgh Steelers failed to post a winning record for the first time in the Mike Tomlin era. Worse still, they dropped five of their final seven games after a 6-3 start to finish 8-8 on the season.

That’s not why Tomlin is leading his squad through a particularly physical training camp by current NFL standards, though. Pittsburgh’s third head coach of the Super Bowl era just rolls that way; he knows no other way to properly prepare his players other than to replicate actual football conditions.

“It really is kind of twofold for me,” he tells Tiki, Brandon, and Dana on The Morning Show on CBS Sports. “First, I’m not concerned about what other guys are doing. And number two, I’ve just got to get these guys the type of atmosphere that’s conducive to us being what we need to be.”
