BTSC's Neal Coolong rightly called out Mike Florio for grossly distorting Mike Tomlin's words during his recent induction to the Hall of Fame at William and Mary. So did Dan Gigler of the PG's Blog and Gold.
Kudos for both man for standing up for the truth in the face of sensationalism.
But this whole controversy is a shame, because Mike Tomlin gave a fabulous speech. In just 15 minutes the Tomlinator revealed his depth of character, class and sense of humor.
The Steelers playoff loss to the Broncos at Mile High was a tremendous disappointment by any measure.
Lots of factors went into the defeat, but when you take the good, bad, and the ugly into account, the game in many ways served as a Microcosm for the entire season.
The Steelers had a golden opportunity to leap ahead of Baltimore and New England by beating the 49ers.
Taking advantage of that opportunity came down to the decision to play Ben Roethlisberger or not and Mike Tomlin quite simply made the wrong decision and then was unwilling or unable to adjust.
