What I remember reading or hearing was that Tomlin blew them away in the interviews. (And my assumption) Probably got a great recommendation from Tony Dungy, a pittsburgh guy who was getting a lot of credit for the Colts success at the time.
have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you became a hired goon right out of school? you would have had a chance to learn the ropes from other goons and rub shoulders with all kinds of seedy characters. oh the stories you would be able to tell.
