So much for coming to his defense?

Tomlin obviously doesn't agree with the league, but I think his stance is that he is a coach trying to win a game on Monday night, not some sports analyst whose job is to state whether he agrees with the rule or not. It's business as usual, and I can't blame Tomlin. Let the sports writers do their job and let him do his, which involves trying to get a 7th Lombardi to Pittsburgh and NOT publicly analyze the decisions made by NFL officials.

This will probably push him one more step in the direction of retirement. He threatened it last year.

I'm sure at the very least, Tomlin agrees with Harrison behind close doors and him along the ownership and PR staff have said that this is what they HAVE to say to the media so to not amplify the situation and put them in the best situation to keep winning

I'm sure a lot of this scripted response is damage control - they don't want this blowing up any more than it already has

Don't worry - you thought our Steelers were playing well? Now they are really feeling disrespected and are determined to make a stand

Division or not, we're in the playoffs and we will def take this out on some teams

we all talk about what ifs if we win #7 this season - Harrison could end up being another one that calls it quits now if that were the case

Tomlin's got to go...

Not having his team ready for games and not sticking up for his players.

Winner or not, he's got to go!

Just watched the ESPN roundtable talk today. Unbelievable.
Skip Bayless actually took up for Harrison and said the suspension should be ZERO games. He didn't think the hit was anything special, and certainly not deliberate.

The rest of the panel though? They all wanted 2 GAMES...that the one-game wasn't enough. Can you believe that?? I'm appalled.

Honestly, I would have been amazed if Harrison was with the Steelers next year even without this incident. His back isn't the best, and even though he's having a good year, his upside is much less than his downside. We need to get younger on defense, and we have players that can fill his position. That's life in the NFL.

Default Re: #92 getting punished for an UNWARRANTED reputation

unfortunately we are on a path of no return and while I'm an advocate of player safety, the inconsistency of the discipline and the fact that the Browns and the league are receiving little to no heat about McCoy going back into the game with what was NOT the true concussion test and what was not in his best interest (we are the toughest team in the league - but if a guy gets a stinger, "bell rung", even if he wants to - is not let back into the game no matter what)
