Did he say "make no bones about it" in the interview?

that's all i'm saying
No, actually that is EXACTLY what a coach should say to the media. What really matters to the team is what he says behind closed doors. I'm sure the only problem Tomlin had with what Harrison did is that it got him a suspension. He knows the scenario behind that hit and he knows Harrison doesn't want to hit people in the head.

Relax, my fellow Steelers fans. Tomlin in no way admitted anything except it was a penalty. A flag was thrown, the yards were marked off, and it was in fact a penalty. He never agreed with anything but that they will accept the judgement and move on. If Tomlin wants to move on, we should, too.

Seems a bit odd that Tomlin decided to comment on this issue, if you listen to alot of commentators they are on both sides even Dungy said that Harrison was aiming for the breast plate of McCoy. In the words of Tammy Wynette " Stand by your man" C'mon Tomlin your not gonna score any point with the Nfl by agreeing

If Terrell Suggs hit Ben Roethlisberger like that - I would want it to be called a penalty.

Yep. That is my honest feeling so IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING A HYPOCRITE, I would agree with Tomlin and say that what Harrison did is a penalty.

What a stupid thread. Tomlin has always had his players backs. He has no choice but to give the right answer in front of the TV cameras. As we all know, in his interviews he always plays it close to the vest and keeps the focus on the team as a whole, not on one individual player, injury, in this case suspension, or even on a particular side of the ball. His answers to nearly every question can be boiled down to this: "We're going to keep working hard and winning football games." For anyone to sit here and say that he agrees with this suspension (I am sure he does not) or as one headline has said "Tomlin Backs Suspension" is boneheaded, plain and simple. As other people on this thread have said, I am sure behind closed doors Mike has made his real views on this very clear. How anyone can criticize Tomlin is beyond me, he is an excellent coach, a great leader and his results over four seasons going on five bears it out. Here's to a 4th divsion title, a third AFC championship and a second Super Bowl title under this man. He is a true BOSS.
