Nothing pisses me off more than stupid ass headlines like “Tomlin uses profanity when describing next opponent, New England”. Grow up. Anyone who is angry about this is too sensitive for competition and sports. Of course, Tomlin is calling New England assholes! I would too. He is trying to get the Steelers ready for the AFC Championship game against the best QB/Coach duo, arguably in the history of the game. I am shocked he didn’t say worse. I sure as hell would have. Not to mention that the game is being played in Foxborough, an outrageously difficult place to play in January against the league’s best team. Tomlin’s job is to win games and to do that, he needs to motivate his team to get the best out of them. If he has to call the Patriots assholes to do so, then by all means, Mike, do it. I am extremely confident that Brady, Belichick and company have and will say the exact same thing about Pittsburgh. It’s football. There aren’t any participation trophies. You play to win and you do not like your opponent.
Tomlin Calling Patriots “Assholes” Is Exactly What He Should Do
