If you are like me James Conner Jersey , NFL game days don’t involve much of the pre-game festivities. As a father of 5, and plenty of things on the to-do list, listening to the ‘talking heads’ just don’t rank high on my priority list. I will sit down around 12:45 p.m. ET and settle in to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers do battle with any number of opponents. Much to my surprise this week, when Mike Tomlin was heading into the locker room before the Steelers played the Ravens, ESPN’s Dianna Russini asked Tomlin about several different topics, but none larger than the question about Le’Veon Bell.Tomlin, the constant wordsmith, gave Russini, and media outlets everywhere, a tremendous quote on his All-Pro running back who has passed up $7.7 million dollars and has watched James Conner turn in an All-Pro performance of his own.Just watch his response below:As I dug a bit deeper, the fan and media reaction to Tomlin’s remarks were outstanding. People were reading so much into Tomlin’s remarks, when they should just be taking them at face value.How often does Tomlin have to tell the media he is only concerned about the players who are there in the facility working everyday? How many times does he have to refuse to talk about Bell Roosevelt Nix Color Rush Jersey , because he isn’t there> This was just a unique way of saying the exact same thing. He wants volunteers, or people willing to do work, not hostages who are trying to leverage something for themselves.Maybe this was Tomlin being more candid than he had been previously, but his stance on Bell’s absence has remained strong throughout offseason workouts, training camp, the preseason and the first half of the regular season. If/when Bell returns, Tomlin will then have to make some tough decisions, but until then he will do what he has been saying he will do since the start of the season — focusing on those “volunteers” who are a part of this 5-2-1 team who has won four games in a row.Tomlin loves to make comments like this, and it shouldn’t surprise anyone he used the words he used. But while some want to dissect his words, I suggest we all do something a bit more constructive...Praise James Conner for his ridiculous play throughout the four games during this winning streak. Among the lower 48 states, exactly two aired the Dolphins vs. the Colts Sunday. Because I live in one of those two, it was off once again to B-Dubs. Here are ten of the thoughts that passed through my thick skull along the way.1. What goes around comes around. I remember a week ago https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Chukwuma-Okorafor-Jersey , after the Jags marched up and down the field on us early, and the score was merely 9-0, that that boded well for us. This week we did the marching, but didn’t end up with 9 points. We had 0. Not at all a good sign. This is the NFL, and you just can’t let a team you are able to dominate stay in the game.2. Why, I wondered, didn’t the X-man cut back inside and into the end zone? I got my answer- Grimble elected not to cut back because he wanted to put the hurt on someone. Look, I love smash mouth football. But it’s smash mouth FOOTBALL. You win the game by getting the ball, in your possession, into the end zone. You don’t win by hurting the other guy. And when you forget that, you hurt the team. Stupid, stupid Dan McCullers Jersey , stupid. So stupid, in fact, that I don’t even blame Tomlin. He shouldn’t have to remind his players- the object of the game is to score more points than your opponent.3. Props to Chuks. Von Miller didn’t have a Von Miller against a rookie game; he didn’t even have a Von Miller game. Yes, he beat Chuks a time or two, but even if I could have heard the play-by-play at B-Dubs, I think I would have heard the words “Von Miller” fewer times than “Lite Beer from Miller.”4. The time to toss the timing patterns from the playbook has long since passed. I understand the need for quick release passes to counter a strong pass rush. But there are ways to do that without timing patterns. When your quarterback has been playing at a Hall of Fame level for a decade and a half, when his greatest strength is lengthening plays by moving in the pocket, when his heroics come forth when he’s playing backyard football, why not, you know, put those strengths to good use? Let the man use his mind, his experience Jesse James Color Rush Jersey , his feet, his size.5. That said, even with our amazing red zone performance overall, I’m beginning to wonder if there’s a worse Ben than road Ben- inside the 5 Ben. That last pick gave me flashbacks to last year’s New England game.6. As did Grimble’s fumble. I remember reading that that stupid rule was on the table during the off-season. It must go. I explained it to my beautiful wife- if we fumble out of bounds on our five, it’s our ball on our five. If we fumble out of bounds on the fifty, it’s our ball on the fifty. If we fumble out of bounds on their five, it’s our ball on their five. If we fumble out of bounds in their end zone, it’s their ball on our twenty. What? How does that make any kind of sense? As with Jesse Jame’s (non-)catch last year, the rule was applied correctly. In honor of Charles Dickens, author of the incomparable Christmas Carol, allow me to quote from Oliver Twist- “If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Arthur-Moats-Jersey , squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, “the law is a ass — a idiot.”7. Yes, when you’ve been blessed to teach literature in college, it sometimes makes its way into game time. I’ve had commenters grumble about politics in my pieces, and religion. Don’t grumble about literature. Show some class.8. Ben missed wide open receivers more than once. I wish his rare overthrows would match up nicely with the rare times his guys have no separation. 9. One of my game time thoughts leaked out in a tweet- One thing I never expected to hear- “Boswell finds an open Villanueva for a touchdown.” Way to not live in your fears coach. #steelernation @btsteelcurtain. And how old school is Big Al, gently handing the ball to the ref, “acting like he’s been there before”?10. Losing stinks so much more than almost losing....It was a pipe dream to hope that winning the games we should win could help us slip past Kansas City and New England. Now we need to win at least two of the three still ahead of us against playoff teams. Think we can pull it off?
