Default Re: Ask a RB how friendly "players coach" Tomlin is...

It's definitely going to have a negative impact on morale - maybe if Tomlin had benched of the backs, as a statement, that might been acceptable. Benching multiple backs sends players the message that they suck, and they're not worthy of playing this game and they're certainly not worthy of donning a Steelers jersey. When multiple players begin to feel resentful, you run the risk of pissing off the rest of the team in general. A sustained atmosphere of negativity in the Steelers locker room would be disastrous and should be avoided at all costs.
Having a signature is overrated.
