    Favorite Tomlinism

    What's your favorite Mikey T saying?

    Here's one I liked. While it was referring to Josh Cribbs, I think he could resurrect this one as it's applicable to this past season.

    "We've been dead Indians in his Cowboy movie enough"

    This quote came in 2011. Special teams replayed this role several times during the course of the 2012 season.

    I like this one:

    "I coach by my gut."

    It is especially enlightening considering his gut grew by about 20 lbs this season.

    I lost some enthusiasm with Tomlin this season. I'm finding it hard to come up with a favorite Tomlinism in the face of an 8-8 season. He's had some good/funny phrases for sure. But he also gets annoying with all his cliche's and coach-speak.

    It's a "what have you done for me lately" game and right now, we're still licking the wounds.

    It's a progress.

    I like what he said after his first loss as a Steeler coach.


    Reporter: Coach Tomlin, What do you think about your first loss as the Steelers head coach ?

    Tomlin: I knew eventually we would lose a game.
