Tomlin: Cowboys comments 'funny'

PITTSBURGH -- Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin apparently doesn't accept early Christmas gifts, as the Dallas Cowboys have put it this week.

In the aftermath of Sunday's 20-13 comeback victory over Dallas, a Cowboys player told reporters "Christmas came early for the Steelers." Initial reports had the quote attributed to tight end Jason Witten, but NFC East blogger Matt Mosley clarified Monday that it was receiver Patrick Crayton who made the statement.

Either way, Tomlin was amused by the comments during his weekly press conference Tuesday.

"That's just guys talking," Tomlin said. "That's funny to me. When the clock strikes zero, you either got more points than your opponents or you don't. We could have said the same thing about our Indianapolis game but we didn't. We acknowledge that we didn't finish the job. That's what winning is about, particularly winning in December."

And winning in the final month of the season is something the Steelers have done well. Pittsburgh is 16-5 in December since 2004.

Dallas, on the other hand, continues to give out early Christmas gifts in December, as it has for much of this decade.

Funny how Crayton who didn't even have 1 catch on Sunday does the most talking after games. This is the same punk who after they lost to the Cheaters last year said they would meet them again in the Super Bowl and take care of business. This guy has more post game comments than career receptions.

Whether it was Christmas, Good Fortune, Divine Intervention, or just plain Hard Work...I don't care. We got the "W".

Since I live in Dallas, this was one of the sweetest wins I have experienced as a Steelers fan in a long time.

Yep - I hope we knocked them on the downward slide outta the playoffs.
That would be even sweeter - they can spend their whole year thinking "what might have been".

Big words coming from a little man who didn't have a single reception last Sunday. :laughing: How's those splinters in your ass feel douchebag? :toofunny:

The Cryboys and Romo are overrated and they proved that last Sunday.

Clayton's a joke. He should try breaking a sweat before he opens up his pie hole.

Crayton and company should be more ready for TO getting ready to explode and of course making the playoffs instead of worrying about what happened in our game.
