Mike Tomlin's Sideline Move

Recommended Posts

If you watched the Thursday night game between Pittsburgh, and Baltimore, you are probably familiar with this incident.

 

It occurred while Jacoby Jones was returning a punt, and Tomlin is seen clearly over the white line, looking over his shoulder, and grins afterwards. The league is currently looking into it. So what does everyone else think about this? No big deal, or downright dirty?

 

Regardless, it's a bad look for the NFL, and a head coach like Tomlin should know better.

Tomlin is an arrogant ass. I used to like him, but over the years he's become kind of an unbearable prima donna. At a minimum he should take a hefty fine.

 

In a related story, NJ Nets coach Jason Kidd "accidentally" dropped his soda on the court when he was out of timeouts to get some extra time with his guys and was fined $50k by the NBA less than 48 hours after the incident.

The thing that us really odd us that he wasn't watching the play except maybe on the jumbo torn. What kind of coach doesn't keep his eyes on the field during special teams plays?

Yeah, there's pretty much zero chance that was accidental.

The guy would've still been caught, no matter where Tomlin was, but yeah it was cheap. Not as bad as what Jason Kidd did the other night though in the NBA, lol. Spilling his soda on the floor to get a free timeout haha.

Cowher came pretty close to pulling a similar stunt on a game ending interception return back when he was coaching.  He was facing the guy and had a fist raised, but stepped back.

 

Sal Alosi is the only guy I know who was ever caught, but I doubt he's the only perpetrator.

50k for a timeout. ..it would've been a brilliant move if it were the playoffs....regular season it's kinda stupid.

I hate to be the dissenting opinion but I think it was a ballsy move by a coach that wanted to win in a BAD way.

I mean seriously, how many other coaches would put their neck on the line like he did?

Plus, it makes the game soooo much more fun.

If he tried that kinda crap against the Panthers I would be furious. I think hypocrisy is allows when it comes to our boys.
