Default Tomlin scolds reporter for talking plays

http://content.usatoday.com/communit...alking-plays/1


PITTSBURGH -- The New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers aren't doing any trash talking, but Steelers coach Mike Tomlin fired a zinger Wednesday at ESPN reporter Bob Holtzman.

Before the Steelers' playoff game with the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, Holtzman reported the Steelers might use a gadget play.Mike Tomlin
CAPTIONBy Kirby Lee, US Presswire
"Two Steelers have told me, if they catch the Ravens in the right defense, they have a trick play ready to go today that they've never run before," Holtzman said prior to the game. He added it was a play on which somebody who typically doesn't pass would throw the ball -- and that it wouldn't be passing wide receiver Antwaan Randle El.

At Tomlin's Wednesday news conference, Holtzman ask him how much extra time it takes to prepare for coach Rex Ryan's Jets defense.

"It depends on whether or not you give him my plays, you know," Tomlin said with steely eyes and without elaboration.

After the news conference, Holtzman declined comment on the matter.

Against Baltimore, QB Ben Roethlisberger was the lone Steeler to throw a pass. Pittsburgh did run two end around with WR Mike Wallace for minus two yards.



Wonder who talked about plays? Players? Doubtful. Love the way Tomlin answered!

I'll go ahead and give one away: If the Steelers catch the Jets in the right formation, Ben Roethlisberger is going to throw a long bomb to Mike Wallace down the right sideline. They've been working on the play all year long.

He pulls no punches. If the NFL didn't make the players and coaches talk to the press, the Steelers probably would NEVER talk to them. They always try to bait players and quite frankly, some of them take the bait hook, line and sinker and give them sensationalistic headlines that end up on the other team's bulletin board.

Mike is going to run right past Revis. And then he will reach for his hamstring. He is good but overrated.
