Default Re: Tomlin Press Conference

Don't get me wrong - I am a huge Tomlin fan (consider that last January the non-Steeler assistant regarded as most likely to get the HC job was Ron Rivera, who is now the inside linebackers coach for the Chargers - how times change).

But all the inspirational talk does not count for much - I do not think Gibbs, Walsh, Noll, and Belichick ever knocked anyone out as motivational speakers, but they have 13 SB rings between them as HCs. I also do not think they maintained training camp intensity for regular season practices, which I am hoping is just posturing on Tomlin's part.

The Steelers organization apparently had become a little stale, but now it is time to see if the changes Arians and Tomlin have brought to offense, defense and special teams carries over to winning games when it counts.

P.S. - note to the P-G - hire a proofreader (Chuck Knoll?)
