Default "no throwing dirt on the body" - best tomlin quote ever.

i was watching sound FX on nfl network and they showed tomlin address the team in the locker room immediately after last weeks win vs the ravens.

he told the team he wanted them to move forward and there was no need looking back. no throwing dirt on the body.

that is profound.

the ravens are dead and there is no need to bury them (not even worthy of a burial). no need to talk about them. no need to even think about them.

after all, the main goal was to win the division first and the superbowl second.

i notice the media sure loves bart scotts post game anti patriots rant.

i wonder where both teams focus has been the entire season, and which team really has the ultimate prize in its crosshairs?

while belichick is personal to the jets, lombardi is personal to the steelers.

tomlin never seems to let the team lose sight of that focus.

Is it true that the jets are still trading words with the patriots? I like tomlin's stance on focusing on the task at hand

I love it. All week the Steelers have been focusing on the Jets while the Jets have still probably been chattering about how great it was to finally beat the Patriots when it mattered.

Tomlin is Bellicheck in no emotions on game day, but he's like Ryan in the locker room.

i love how tomlin subtley refered to the ravens as a corpse rotting in the sun.

no need to bury them, just let the buzzards, crows, and maggots dispose of the road kill, as we keep on truckin'.

brilliant!

Its a testament to Tomlin's razor sharp focus on just moving onto the next week & getting ready for next week's opponent. Jets acted like they won the Super Bowl after beating the Pats.

Cool Re: "no throwing dirt on the body" - best tomlin quote ever.

Let's not forget the Dick LeBeau quote of the year:

These guys cannot score on us without some fluky sh!t. (at: 2:40)

Good to see him confident and fired up like that. Love it.

Haha! Could not agree more, if the coaches are this fired up, I can only imaginehow fired up the players must be!
