Default Re: Tomlin on why he didn't go for a 2pt-conversion

Keep this in mind, Tomlin said the reason he kept Ben in the game late was because the Steelers are "competitors." If they are such fierce competitors, why not try and do everything possible to win? If it's 34-26 instead of 34-24 after the Brown TD, the Steelers at least have a chance to recover an onside kick with 58 seconds left to tie the game with a TD and 2pt-conversion. Yes, their chances of even recovering an onside kick are low, but again Tomlin said "we are competitors." Why are they not making every desperate move to try and come back?
