Mike Tomlin busted out some dance moves in the Steelers locker room following a Week 1 win over the Bengals.
If you watched Sunday’s Bengals-Steelers game, you likely didn’t leave under the impression that either team is particularly high on the list of NFL teams that could contend for a Super Bowl this season.
Cincinnati turned the ball over five times with Joe Burrow throwing four interceptions and losing a fumble. Despite forcing all of these turnovers, the Steelers managed to score only 23 points and needed almost every single second of overtime to escape with a win.
Simply put, the football was ugly on Sunday.
It was nothing but positive vibes in the Steelers locker room, though. After the game Mike Tomlin celebrated the first win of the season with his players by busting out some dance moves on Instagram Live:
This isn’t the first time the Steelers have busted out an Antonio Brown dance. Rookie wide receiver George Pickens — who could take the torch that Brown passed in Pittsburgh — got in on the fun earlier this preseason, thus keeping AB’s memory in Pittsburgh alive.
To be fair, none of the issues we later discovered plagued Brown reared their ugliness while he was in Pittsburgh. It’s one of the crowning achievements and most glowing endorsements of Tomlin as a coach that he was able to keep the AB train wreck on the rails and not let it sour the locker room or the team’s chemistry.
Also, somewhere JuJu Smith-Schuster is furious that he died so this sort of locker room dancing could live.
So, if we’re being technical, perhaps these dances were never AB’s and they always belonged to Tomlin. Either way the winning ways remain in Pittsburgh and it seems that as long as Tomlin is in charge the dancing will continue.
