    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."

    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.

    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.
