Steelers HC Mike Tomlin unimpressed with Dwyane Haskins: Not type of performance we wanted

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wasn’t happy with the performance quarterback Dwyane Haskins put up in preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.

Haskins completed 9-of-16 attempts for 108 yards, a touchdown and an interception as the Panthers thrashed the Steelers 34-9.

Haskins, who was taken in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Washington Football Team, was making his first start for the Steelers.

“Like the rest of us, I didn’t think it was enough varsity work from him,” Tomlin said, per ESPN. “It wasn’t the type of performance he wanted or we wanted. But such is life.”

Haskins completed a couple of notable passes on the final possesion, which ended with a Steelers touchdown.

However, coach Tomlin wasn’t impressed.

“I’m sure it did for him, in terms of getting that taste out of his mouth,” Tomlin said of Haskins. “Obviously, it had no consequence or bearing on the outcome of the game.”
