Default Steelers faked out by Tomlinís movie day ruse

LATROBE, Pa. (AP)óCoach Mike Tomlin is showing his Pittsburgh Steelers itís not only quarterbacks who can run a fake.As the Steelers trudged toward their practice fields for the last in a long series of a two-a-day practices Thursday, a fleet of buses pulled up at Saint Vincent College. To the veteran players, this signaled a welcome training camp tradition that began under former coach Bill Cowher: A morning at the movies, with no practice.Wrong. Buckle up that chin strap.It was all a ruseóthere were no movies, no break. Practice went on, and Tomlin only grinned.ďJust a little mental warfare,Ē Tomlin said. ďSometimes people need to be horribly disappointed and then asked to perform. And they did pretty well.Ēhttp://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

I like it. I have the feeling he'll make it up to the players, somehow.

I'm sure that took the wind out of a few sails. But I like the tactic....a lot. They can't get complacent if they want to repeat.

I heard it was Reed that setup the joke. Either way it's pretty funny.

Yep, the Associated Press reported it was all Jeff Reed's doing, and only Coach Tomlin and team security director Jack Kearney were forewarned.

Skippy strikes again! Maybe this was payback for that rookie's imitation of the Sheetz incident on talent night...
