Default Re: Tomlin focuses on penalties

Tomlin is right. The Steelers were awesome, but they could've done better. We left several points out there. The WR drops, Willie's fumble...

Tomlin wants the full effort out of this team. He wants a smart, focused, aggressive team with some fire and intensity on O and D. I'm sold on Tomlin. One thing that alarmed me was when he came in, he wanted to mold this team around the strengths of the players. Not force them into hs own schemes and philosophy. Not establish an "identity". The 3-4 was the staple of the Steelers Defense for years. Tomlin's a 4-3 guy. But what did he do? He kept Lebeau and uncuffed him. Now DL can work the Defense anyway he pleases. Those little things are what makes me glad Tomlin is the Steelers coach.

Of course, wait until our first loss...
