What he had to hear were the pads popping, and while it's difficult to quantify and there are no statistics to support the contention, this camp is ending in a much more spirited manner than the 2006 version under Bill Cowher.
"I'm thoroughly enjoying this," said Tomlin about training camp as a whole. "I might be in the minority with respect to that, but it's been productive. The guys are competing, we're getting better. It's a process, and guys are respecting the process. They're showing mental toughness, they're focusing on the details. That's what has made it good for me."
Of course with regard to camp being more spirited than last year, the 2006 camp was so low key all that was missing was afternoon nap time.
Definitely a better vibe so far to this pre-season as compared to the torpor of 2006.
