The main example that I notice repeatedly is his reference to the people on his team as "MEN" and not "guys, fellas, players or anything else. They are MEN. I think that this actually speaks volumes about what expectations he has for the MEN as far as their actions on and off the field, but it also says a lot about the respect he has for this group!

I think he expects the same respect from the men he coaches as he give them. He says repeatedly that he is "developing these men" and "expecting more from the men"...

This is in contrast with the Chin, who I feel...especially in the last year of his tenure....was a "player's coach" and was "one of the guys" so to speak. His method of commanding respect was from being one of them. Coach Tomlin doesn't seem to me to seek to be "one of them" but the "leader of them" on and off the field. There seems to be a respectful (and healthy) distance between coach and player, and the players seem to be responding well to it.

I am excited about this new era, and can't wait to see the talk turned to actions! After Sunday, the "TALK" will be accompanied by the "WALK"!

Sorry this is rambling a bit! Enjoy the read!

I couldn't agree with you more.

Default Re: Tomlin Press Conference

Anyone listen to today's PC? I'm curious as to the injury update on Deshea.

Also, does anyone know why Pittsburgh is the only team that holds their press conference on a Tuesday?

Business heads of the world unite in recognition - a common thread. I'm a huge proponent of Tomlin for exactly what you highlight. And that your post comes from La Crosse, WI shocks me not at all.

And being a business head could be deemed a curse. Mind you it's not one dimensional but rather a passion which leaves little room for anything other than...business. And when properly capitalized some may move mountains. Some may say sickness or obsession others call it drive and hunger for anticipated results. The weakest are the former.

Better business heads can do more with less capital because they shun the frivolous and the excessive overhead...i.e. vanity. Tomlin's character exhibits this mentality.

Whoa. Any wonder why the Rooney's love this guy? Players coach? F**k that. Players are employees. Like it or not. Outside of the Rooney's everyone is an employee by pure definition.

THIS is why I'm taking bets that Tomlin will win the big one in LESS than 15 years. Why? Because I think he can gain command of the bottom line and the employees with RESPECT.

There is no other coach that presently facinates me more than Tomlin and it has nothing to do with him being a Steeler - sort of. If there were a way to go long outside of Vegas I'd be long and buying on up ticks.
