Seriously? What an ignorant comment to make on quite a few levels.

The question I have seen a lot is, "what was he supposed to say"? What he should have said is exactly what he told his players to say: nothing! He can't really say anything in james' favor, so be quite and dont further damage an already impossible appeal by saying it was "illegal" when it was a legitimate tackle.

Has anybody that has even used the phrase "Uncle Tom" in this thread even read the novel? The way that people use the phrase isn't even applicable to the character in the story. If anything, it's a condemnation of Christianity, and has nothing to do with race or being a traitor.

I think he meant to say Dick Head, cause that's what you are. Turn in your keys, dick head. Better?

Ignorance at it's best is displayed with unintelligent fan's, and it happens often. It's easy to say things and point fingers from behind your computer desk, or in the comfort of your living room. But I guarantee you one thing. Put yourself in the situations in which you complain about, and your viewpoint changes almost as quickly as you sought to speak out of it in the first place.

IMO the important thing is to not make it any more of an issue then it already is. The last thing this team needs is anything that can be a distaction from the task at hand. Beating the 49ers. Tomlin is a class act. As I mentioned in another thread, he did what a coach is supposed to do. Address the situation but don't add any fuel to the fire. Make sure the other players on the team follow your lead. Then put it to rest and move on.
