The Steelers will preach a similar theme this week that they did last as they prepare to go to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers hydrate, hydrate, and hydrate.



Temperatures in Tennessee were in the 90s with an even higher heat index on the field and similar conditions could welcome the Steelers to Florida.


But the Steelers, who will wear black jerseys again this week, wont allow the weather to be a factor.



We have to play in it, said Coach Mike Tomlin. Its going to be hot on their sideline as well. Ive coached football down there. This time of year when you coach football down there you like to feel good about the climate in that its a winning edge. But the reality is that if you dont get off the field and make the necessary plays you need to make it could hurt you. Ive been a part of that. Were not going to get too caught up in it.

Last week the team rotated in offensive linemen because dehydration became an issue. Tomlin didnt commit to dressing an extra offensive lineman because of that, knowing the same thing can happen on the other side of the ball.

We have the same issues with our defensive line if they cant get off the field, said Tomlin. It wasnt an issue with our defense in the last game because we created turnovers. Those are natural issues or questions that you ask yourself going into a game. The reality is you cant carry extra bodies at all positions. So based on the matchup, our level of comfort and preparedness and health, those are the things that will kind of determine where we distribute the helmets.

Rookie Antonio Brown gave the Steelers an early spark against the Titans, returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown. But Tomlin wont commit just yet to Brown handling the duties again this week.


He made a pretty good case for himself, but I can be a tough guy to work with sometimes so we will see how the week unfolds, said Tomlin.

Lawrence Timmons is off to a strong start, but it doesnt surprise Tomlin at all.



I really thought that he was on course a year ago, said Tomlin. He missed four plus games and it was limited in some others due to the high ankle injury that he had, but the play that he is exhibiting right now is no different than the play that he exhibited a year ago when healthy. I thought the light came on for him a year ago.

Goodell's deliberate attempt to sabotage our season to help his beloved Baltimore is only going to make this team angry, and more focused, just like Coach T said.

Translation: I was irritated that Brown showboated his way into the endzone, and I don't want him getting too comfortable and taking anything for granted.

:Agree

I watched it on replay and it was REALLY stupid what he did. The initial swinging of the arm out with the ball cupped in there had a decent chance of losing the ball from a sudden change in momentum.

Tomlin said this just because it was his pick... no way Timmons played well last year. He was a scrub. :tt2
