Pro Football Focus has never been afraid of stirring the pot. But its latest list may be its most controversial one to date.

The outlet released its list of the top 10 coaches in the NFL entering the 2022 season on Tuesday. The list unsurprisingly created a ton of controversy.

Mike Tomlin A Glaring Omission

While many commented on the lack of Los Angeles Rams’ head coach Sean McVay, who led his team to a Super Bowl ring in February, he’s not the name that has most people up in arms.

That would be Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin’s career success is inarguable. After taking over for NFL Hall of Fame inductee Bill Cowher in 2007, Tomlin has been an inarguable success. Tomlin has been to two Super Bowls. He has never had a losing season. He’s led the Steelers to the playoffs in 10 of his 15 seasons and is currently the second-longest tenured head coach in the league behind Bill Belichick.

So it’s no surprise that NFL fans on Twitter wasted no time in roasting the list.

Tomlin Not The Only Name Has People Upset

While the lack of Tomlin on the list is what’s drawn the most ire, it’s far from the only thing people seem unhappy about.

Pro Football Focus has garnered plenty of praise since the analytics-based website was purchased taken over by Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Collinsworth in 2014. This list, however, doesn’t appear to be making any new fans.
