Thread: we could lose a draft pick due to Tomlin debacle...

For a first offense for a very classy coach, I think it's absurd that a draft pick is even in the discussion. A flag and a fine is all that was deserved for this mistake.
    Tomlin's foot did not stay in the white. He was clearly on the field or they wouldn't have even fined him.

    Just last week, the Jets were flagged for interfering with an official...no fine issued, despite their history with sideline interference...

    Tomlin neither interfered with the official nor the player...but, he's popped for $100K and the dangling threat of a draft pick?

    Not capricious? Not arbitrary?

    That is true...he did take a step onto the grass in order to push off and get out of the way of the player...

    But, they would have fined him regardless...

    ^^^^^^ this folks. Why are some out there in sports land so blind that their own minds fool their own eyes.

    How could have it been on purpose? It appears to me that Tomlin did not move UNTIL the play was upon him. WHAT, does he have super powers or ESP that the play would happen to be run back that far, or to that side of the field? I don't buy it.

    Of course, he shouldn't of been there. But I don't see him move AT ALL until the play is there. I can see it intentional if he were moving as the play developed.

    The difference is Tomlin's on the competition committee. He is being held to a higher standard.... just sayin.

    $100K certainly accounts for that high standard...

    If I'm standing still and I want to step left (like Tomlin did).... I don't need to take a step to the right first. No offense but that is a horrible excuse

    It depends how quickly you need to move and whether you have time to think things over or are reacting instinctly (as if surprised). Jones was gonna be tackled by Cortez whether Tomlin was there or not. Jones veering away from Tomlin would only make the tackle more difficult as Cortez would have to adjust to his target changing directions.
