In Chuck Knoll's first year as head coach, the Steelers posted an impressively anemic 1-13 record. But in his second season, the team improved
drastically slightly to 5-9.
In Bill Cowher's first year as head coach, the Steelers returned to the playoffs with an 11-5 record. But in his second season, the team's record dipped slightly to 9-7.
Current head coach Mike Tomlin's first season ended in the first round of the playoffs, after a 10-6 regular season. In Tomlin's second year as head coach, he faces the most difficult schedule (on paper) for ANY team in recent NFL history.
Will Tomlin suffer a case of the sophomore slump? What type of season/record would constitute labeling the Steelers 2008 season a slump? Is the concept of a sophomore slump ridiculous? What predictions do you have for the upcoming season?
