IMO the important thing is to not make it any more of an issue then it already is. The last thing this team needs is anything that can be a distaction from the task at hand. Beating the 49ers. Tomlin is a class act. As I mentioned in another thread, he did what a coach is supposed to do. Address the situation but don't add any fuel to the fire. Make sure the other players on the team follow your lead. Then put it to rest and move on.
