Thanks, Coach.  Yeah, that was a real funny move on the sideline that night in Baltimore.  Remember that?  Ha ha ha! How we all laughed.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin could be fined at least $100,000 and the team could lose a draft pick as a result of Tomlin interfering with a play by stepping on the field, according to multiple reports.

Honestly, I find it difficult to believe that Tomlin was dumb enough to do that on purpose.

But I don't understand how he let that happen. I don't understand how the ref didn't throw the flag. And I don't understand how it could actually cost the team a draft pick.

If it does, there need to be some serious questions about the future of everyone in the organization, from the sideline to the press box.

Come on.  Other coaches have been on the field when the action was close, and I cannot remember ANY team being docked a draft pick.  UNLESS the Rog can prove that Tomlin intended to do it, there should be a fine, and that's it.

My last comment was assuming that the league found some "proof" that Tomlin did it on purpose--and I have no idea how they could possibly find that. I have no issue with a hefty fine, but a draft pick is ridiculous.

Also:  Patriots were not called for a SINGLE PENALTY against the Texans.  Same thing happened in October against the Bungholes.  I'm calling bullshit on this...  there's not a team in the league, not even the squeakiest of the squeaky, that doesn't hold or interfere at least one time per game.  Just doesn't happen.  If we lose a draft pick and the refs are helping Brady and the Girls, what's the point?  Game's rigged.  I mean, all the flippin' rule changes about tackling have made the game more Patriot-ic, and frankly I have no idea what's legal half the fucking time.  Was that hit on Bell by Smith legal?  No?  What are the rules re; hitting 7 of the Steelers, versus 12 of the Patriots?  Two different sets of rules on that latter question.

Was that against the Jags? After a blocked Norm Johnson FG?

Yep, it was against the Jags.  They went on a winning streak after that and made the postseason I believe.

My favorite Cowher moment ever was when he stuffed the picture in the official's pocket after getting called for the phantom to many men on the field penalty. It was definitely in his early years.

That might have been the Vikes game where Robert Smith ran out of his shoe.

No, I think that was the monday nighter against KC I was trying to remember.  Also my favorite Cowher moment.
