Default Tomlin's Team. Now

Ok, an overstatement on my part because it has been Tomlin's team since the day he got the job. He works for a man named Rooney. Any player who doesn't get on board would be shown the door, but his relationship with his players makes it appear as if he has coached them for years. I think kudos to coach Lebeau for sticking around and also making it easy for the players to get accomidated to Tomlin, because of how well he (Lebeau) got himself accomidarted to the new young coach.

Anyhow, on the the reason for the post. Here is a blog entry for espn about tomlin and his players.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did something after the game I've never seen. He stood outside the home locker room and greeted all of his players. He hugged some players and teased others. Tomlin needled defensive end Brett Keisel about his sackless season continuing. Keisel is the team leader in hurries, but he can't close the deal in the sack department.
"I can't buy one, coach," he said to Tomlin.

When Keisel's backup, Travis Kirschke, walked by, Tomlin gave him a hug and said, "Way to get that garbage sack!"

Pretty neat scene to watch Steelers owner Dan Rooney go to every locker after the game and congratulate his players with a pat on the back.

I watched Ward stand at his locker and answer questions for at least 45 minutes after the game. And he saved the best for last. Ward said Ravens linebacker Bart Scott threatened "to kill" him after the receiver delivered a crushing block earlier in the game.
"He tackled me and said he was going to kill me. But as long as you don't shoot me, I'll be fine. I don't think there's any place in the game for that type of stuff. I always thought he was a great player, but I guess he doesn't like me."

Ward also delivered a jarring blow to safety Ed Reed toward the end of one play. He then mockingly signaled for the Ravens trainers to check on Reed.

That's odd, I hope Scott is refering to giving him a big hit, cause if not that dude's got some serious problems

Hhhm, I don't think Ward was trying to mock him. I saw that play, he levelled Reed and then immediately started signalling for trainers, while the play was still running. If he was mocking him, surely that he'd have finished the play first? I think he was genuinely concerned about Reed, it just doesn't seem like Ward to stop while a plays still going simply to mock a rival.
