Default Re: Two for Tomlin

Regardles of how the calls should have been made, the fact of the matter is that the ref's made some bad calls. We as Steelers fans have seen that same process work against us.

I'm glad Tomlin didn't challenge those plays. I'm sure that he'll make the right call on a challenge when he needs to do so. Sometimes all it takes is an overturned call or a call-stands type play to give the other team a little swing and then we're battling things out again.

Tomlin gives a calm feeling about his presence on the sidelines. I get the feeling he knows about the challenges and that he should have or could have challenged but that he wants to send a different message to his players. Something to the affect of, "This is football and you need to play it on the field, not in the replay booth! - NOW GO GET ME THE FOOTBALL!"

I'm liking it - A LOT!
