Doesn't like to be asked questions on game decisions, lol

Reporter asked him about Mundys responsibility on the last play.
Would not address a specific person.

So the reporter creatively changed the question to. Why would you go to a cover ZERO, lol :banging:

I guess you would prefer that he throw his players under the proverbial bus.

Is that not the "standard"? He spoke out on Harrisons suspension prior to the appeal ruling which pretty much sealed any chance of reversal or lighter sentence. Even though he probably had no chance due to the commishs standards, but doesn't help when your coach chucks you under the bus and backs up on your head.

So why should he not state " We had some DB breakdowns throughout the game etc etc.. " We couldn't cover crap! Couldve said something.

He has no problem taking full responsibility again. Whatever that means.

If you think Tomlin saying anything on Harrison's behalf was going to change anything after being called into the principal's office weeks before for speaking up in Ryan Clark's defense over that bullshit $40 thousand fine he got, you need to put down the crack pipe.

Do you really not see the difference between acknowledging that it was an illegal hit and blaming individuals for blown assignments?

State it after the process has gone its course. That has been my point of contention, and still is, and it will not change. He opened his mouth during the suspension appeal process.
This has nothing to do with the hit being bs or not, illegal or legal. The hit is what it is, the only two people in the world that don't remember or haven't seen the hit is the Shurmur and McCoy. lol

You stated "I guess you would prefer that he throw his players under the proverbial bus"

I gave you a solid point, that Tomlin has spoken out against his players, thereby tossing them under your proverbial bus. So if he did it before, he can do it again.
I also didnt state, he needed to state a name. All he had to do was say our DB's sucked ass last night. How is Tomlin taking responsibility for his team sucking last night and failing to cover a wr who got 32 receptions for 500 plus yards all season?
Did Tomlin fail to cover Thomas? Did he fail to sprint to catch a 240 poiund WR? Because a 180 corner should be able to catch a 240 so called MONSTER, right? Not if you jogged.
What is Tomlin aplogizing for?
Instead a reporter has to get creative to get him to answer a question and call him out on a "Cover Zero" call by the coaching staff with 11 in the box. Which of course he than stated, well it wasn't a cover zero, lol Really Mike? It wasn't?

Does Pouncey get a pass for his tweeting antics? Tomlins response was " I haven't seen him(meaning pouncey yet). Does that mean, when I see him, I'll deal with it? Or just blowing it off? Pouncey made it public, it should be publically dealt with. If Pouncey said something to his team mates, than its a private. but he went public on a fan with his childish antics.

Cowher would've had Pouncey walking home as opposed to flying if that occurred when he was a coach.

Your solid point is garbage and I stopped reading there.

Well, that didn't stop you from tossing in your 2 cents, now did it?

People are still listening to Tomlin's press conferences? There's so much more valuable things you could do with your time. Watering your lawn and watching reruns of Glee are some examples.

Exactly, every press conference is the same: responsibility for the loss...gathering our men....things to work on. I don't know what I expected him to say actually, it's just so cliche, the same answer year after year.

You know, i never really thought about that but your right. Not only that but his expressions are always the same as well every press conference. Somebody needs to check and see if this guy is real, flesh and bone. :chuckle: All kidding aside we could do worse and i think the players are on board with there leader.
