TAMPA, Fla. -- First, Ben Roethlisberger showed up about 10 minutes late to his scheduled meeting with the media on Thursday.
Then, coach Mike Tomlin was late for his final press conference on Friday before a certain little game on Sunday. He apologized for his tardiness.
Maybe they were watching film or meeting. Or maybe the Steelers are getting a little cocky, taking things for granted, believing the fact they're heavy favorites.
It's probably the former but it's unusual -- for a head coach in particular -- to show up noticeably late for the last press conference. This is approximately my 15th Super Bowl (I've lost count) and coaches have arrived late before but it's extremely rare.
Ken Whisenhunt managed to show up on time, Mr. Tomlin.
And Whisenhunt didn't wear jeans, either. Would it kill you to wear a suit, Mike?
Cocky or working hard?
Probably working hard. Very hard.
But we'll see on Sunday.
