    my 2 favorites....


    "The issue for us has been, is and hopefully will continue to be winning -- that's my interpretation of Steelers football," Tomlin said yesterday after practice. "Every morning, I come to work I walk past five Lombardis, not five rushing titles. The issue is winning."

    Woooooooooo!

    Steelers Football is 60 minutes.

    It's all about Winning Football

    Splash Plays

    He always talks about embracing everything

    he talks a lot about the tape we make each week telling our story

    he talks a lot about team and the importance of everyone on the roster stepping in and being ready to contribute

    he says reality a lot

    Here's my favorite recent quote:

    Shows Tomlin knows what is importnat and what is just as he would put it "style points." I love when he talks with disdain about "style points" because it shows he doesn't care how we win as long as we win much to the chagrin of the media and fantasy football players.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Re: Tomlinisms

    Tomlin has taught me that no one in the STeelers locker room is "making" any "bones about" anything. I've tried making bones about things this morning. He's right; It is very difficult. First, simply conjuring or concocting a bone is tough enough. But, to give it a likeness or story. That is nearly impossible.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
