JuJu Smith-Schuster gushes over Mike Tomlin in Andy Reid comparison

On Sunday, JuJu Smith-Schuster will be playing for the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship, but the former Steelers wide receiver still fondly remembers his time in Pittsburgh while playing for Mike Tomlin.

Joining the Rich Eisen Show on Saturday, Smith-Schuster was asked to compare the styles of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Tomlin, and to no one’s surprise, Smith-Schuster gave both of them praise. In fact, his comments paint the two coaches as very similar in their management of people in the locker room.

“I would say the biggest thing I takeaway is they’re always for the players,” Smith-Schuster said. “The feeling I get with Andy Reid and Coach Tomlin is that I don’t want to disappoint them. They make everything like, it’s more so when you get in trouble and don’t want your grandmother mad because she’s my favorite grandmother. I go out there and then I mess up, and you get upset with yourself and make them disappointed. That’s how I feel for them. And that’s why we go hard every day.”
