Tomlin cuts a much different figure than Cowher on a practice field. Cowher would wear shorts, a light shirt, a large straw hat. Tomlin dressed all in black, at least yesterday -- long pants, long shirt, sunglasses, black baseball cap. He also wears his dorm room key on a string around his neck, just like everyone else.
that sounds very uncomfortable and extremely hot on a muggy summer day. anyone see any significance in the message this sends?
if tomlin is gonna make the guys sweat and be uncomfortable, he aint afraid to do it too. he sounds like he was dressed for work and to get down to business.
on the other hand, cowher and his silly straw hat, a pair of jams and some flip-flops always looked like he should be walking around with a mai-tai. i can see where some players mightve got the impression it was a relaxed, vacation like atmosphere.
