Are the Steelers Working Hard or Cocky?

Posted on: January 30, 2009 10:13 am
 

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.

Ahhh waah waah Mr Freeman didn't get in his questions. Boohoo. How does being late to Press Conferences make you cocky? Maybe they are preping for something, maybe traffic sucked, maybe they had to do something more important.

The Steelers will need there A game to beat Warner and the Cards.

  The Steelers D must win the turnover battle, and not let Warner manage the clock with 8 min. drives. 

 If the Cards get the running game going early, look out Steelers.

I see this being a high scoring game, a shoot out.

Are the Steelers to Cocky no.  Mike Tomlin has a winning attitude and wants his entire team to give 150% with everything that they do.  Im sorry but noone can be on time for everything.  I guess you never ran late for anything in your entire perfect life. 

 

Steelers will win 28 -17   G0 Steelers Go

I remember that Brady smirk. The Giants D planted a few licks on him for that. In sports you live and learn. I doubt he would do that again.

 

I have read many threads the past two weeks by a majority of Steeler "FANS" prediciting victory. Your team has been well tempered on that end. I think their going to come out and destroy Az.

 

Just enjoying watching some of the Steeler fand have their rpanties tied up in a bunch here.....

 

Enjoy SB Sunday! I will....

Steelrs are noticebly cocky. Reminds me of St Louis back when they played the Cheetriots. The Cheetriots came out and spanked them good.

 

Could happen again...

 

I remember when Sugar Ray Leonard fought Hagler. Everyone was thinking Hagler would knock him out and what happened?

 

Sugar interview was amazing as he said, " I won because none of you thought I could!"

 

BEWARE...karma is a biotch.

Before you even presented this question to us, did you bother possing it to Mike Tomlin? Why must the lame media try finding stories in absolutely nothing?  It's sad.  How about, maybe he just doesn't give a rat's arse about the media, took care of his team first, made a bathroom stop, and then showed up?  WHO CARES?  If he shows up late to the Super Bowl, then you have a story!
