Just a few weeks ago at the NFL owners meetings, the NFL continued its crackdown of hard hits and blows to the head.

“At times, I’ve struggled to figure out why we are at the forefront of this discussion, to be honest with you,” said Tomlin about the illegal hits. “We play football just like everyone else.

Pompeani also spoke to Tomlin about Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall’s controversial Twitter comments about the death of Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
