Tomlin is a Mad Genius

Watching the Safety in the Fourth Quarter, I was going insane.  That's when I first started to get a little nervous about the game.  And I was more than a little annoyed at Hartwig (who had the false start earlier in the game).  But then I read this in the Post Gazette:

"I had already made the decision to take the safety," Tomlin said. "Their punt-rush team is spectacular, led by [ex-Steeler] Sean Morey, their Pro Bowl special teamer. So I really wasn't all that devastated by that safety. It was a little disappointing because we had converted the first down. But my mentality was, had that pass come up incomplete, that we were going to take the safety on fourth down, anyway."

The more I hear Tomlin speak the more I love him.  I don't think I've ever heard a coach wanting to take a safety!  And his reaction to the Fitz TD that put the Cards in the lead, essentially he hoped they scored fast...God I love this man!!
