here's the original

It's rare to see a coach and quarterback holding hands, but Tomlin and Roethlisberger have been through thick and thin together as the Steelers survived the NFL's toughest schedule in 2008 to reach the playoffs and win the Super Bowl.

I can't photoshop but here's what I want to see. Someone cut ben off at the waist and put legs on him so it looks like he's really short.

Hilarious!

Pic #1: All our preparations come down to this moment, we can only trust that they were sufficient.

Pic #2: Cardinals are strewn about the field behind James Harrison after he broke their back returning an interception 100 yards to the house.

(I found it difficult to be irreverant about those moments!)

Trai, "Why you always pampering Ben and ignoring me?"

or

Trai, "You wont hold my hand in public!"

Trai: "You can make him run, sit, kneel AND roll over? Not even the other teams can get him to do that! Is he housebroken?"

Someone please tell me this wasn't a photo shopped pic?

Is this a legit pic?

If so, was it during the cardinals' last drive in
the closing seconds?

I was wondering the same thing when I saw it before I left for work. I so can NOT ever seeing that happening when Cowher was here.

It's legit, from SI, I would think it was during the Cards final drive

Okay, saw the SI site for the origin of this shot.

I am blown away...

Really, I am not trying to be melodramatic, but the fact that
Tomlin has CLEARLY established himself as a leader among men
is all I see in that picture.

On such a grand public stage, a man making millions of dollars and
already the leader on the field, finds so much strength and, yeah
I'll say it, comfort, in his coach that he feels comfortable enough
to kneel down and take this man's hand....

And, for the coach to stand there, steeled and steadfast with the look of man
who has clearly welcomed that role of leader and inspiration, and
hang on to the hand of his million dollar quarterback too?...

I'm not a psychologist, but I have worked in Human Resources for 20
years and I think I know a thing or two about human behaviour, especially
in the workplace.

These are guys who-trust-and-believe-in-each-other-beyond-belief.

I am totally blown away...

No kidding. Just look at Tomlin's expression. He still has his eyes on the prize. Ben looks a little frazzled but finds solace in his coach's outstretched hand. I totally agree with you. This picture symbolizes the trust and faith that the players have in him. I think another poster said it best...Tomlin is way ahead of his time. To be that young, and just get it. I have no words to explain how happy to have him I am.

That aside, its still a funny pic, especially with Trai in the background looking like a child pouting that his dad is holding his brother's hand and not his or something.

Oh, it's got it's humorous side as well!.... :wink:

Tomlin thinking: "Geez, did he have to hold my hand NOW?..."

Ben thinking: "Okay, now, where's my blankee?"
