He Ain’t No Miss

We’ve seen a few misses at the number one spot. He ain’t no miss.

No one coach should have all that swagger.

You know how Simmy feels about Rex Ryan? That’s the way I feel about Mike Tomlin. Well, besides the whole buffoon thing. Tomlin, only in his fourth year as the Steeler’s head coach, is already gunning for his second Super Bowl ring. His players love him, the league loves him, and I love him. I’m a die hard Ravens fan. It’s sickening.

The bromance stems from Tomlin’s cool attitude. In interviews he is always in control, confident, and classy. The highs never get him too excited and the lows never get him flustered. The team is always doing just fine and looking towards the next opponent. He’s all business. Like a boss.

Yesterday, Tomlin further cemented his cool during a Steeler’s press conference. A few hours before last week’s divisional round playoff game ESPN’s Bob Holtzman reported that the Steelers had a trick play they were looking to run. Letting this news out before kickoff understandably rubbed Tomlin the wrong way. Wednesday was the first time the two have since crossed paths and Tomlin used it to take a shot.

Bob Holtzman: “How much time and preparation does it take to prepare for a Rex Ryan defense?”
Mike Tomlin: “It depends on whether you give him my plays, you know?”

Holtzman didn’t have anything else to say. Tomlin is so cool I can barely stand it.
