Yes, Mike Tomlin IS a Very Smart Guy

Last week someone described Mike Tomlin as 'the smartest guy in the room.'

He may have proved it today.

...Earlier today, it was reported that the all of the Pittsburgh Steelers players would remain in the locker room while the national anthem played prior to the start of their away game with the Chicago Bears. Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin explained that the team wouldn’t participate because he didn’t want to force players to choose whether or not to take part in a protest....

It was really to keep the Rooney family from being totally embarrassed, of course, but we'll play along.

One player DID get to the top of the ramp, however.

...Afghanistan veteran, former Army Ranger, and West Point graduate Alejandro Villanueva stood at the tunnel entrance while the song was played, standing with his hand on his heart....

Thanks, Alejandro.  And by the way, your family is very attractive in those commercials!

Being a Steelers fan I have seen mixed emotions from many people but all in all I must agree with you. Especially about Alejandro Villanueva as he seems like a great guy.

You might find it interesting that after Sunday, he became the best selling player:

I also had a quick question about your Gadsden flag on your sidebar, would you mind shooting me an email? I hate to be that guy who asked this on a post but didn't want to ask publicly.

Thanks a bunch and keep up the great work,
