Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers may reach the postseason every year but have never gotten close to the Super Bowl. Despite TJ Watt's absence against the Buffalo Bills, Art Rooney II outlined that he along with players like Cam Heyward need more urgency from their staff. He unveiled these feelings in his latest statement, via Bob Labrlola of the Steelers.

“I think there's an urgency. Everybody. Myself, Mike, guys who have been on the team for a while, TJ Watt, Cam Heyward, everybody. We've had enough of this. It's time to get some wins. It's time to take these next steps,” Art Rooney II said about the Steelers' recent lack of postseason success.

Mike Tomlin has won a Super Bowl with the Steelers. However, the squad has not been back to their title-contending ways ever since. They have not even won a playoff game since 2016 despite making it to at least the Wild Card round each season. Rooney further stressed what mentality they should have entering their next campaign.

“So, yeah, I think there's some urgency here, for sure … There's a resolve there and a determination there … Getting a little impatient. We need to see the kind of improvement we all want to see. Mike believes that as firmly as anybody else in the building,” he declared.

2025 could be the year that the Steelers try to make a deeper playoff push. They will have to re-evaluate some calls on their schemes, rotations, and everything in between but they can pull it off.
