Mike Tomlin certainly has a way with words. Those words were on full display this week after one of his players, second-year wideout Chase Claypool, complained that Steelers practice could be more fun.
On Sunday, the Steelers went out and defeated the Baltimore Ravens and the head coach decided he would randomly crush Claypool’s spirit again.
After TJ Watt collected 3.5 sacks despite spending the entire week away from the team while on the Covid list, a reporter jokingly asked Tomlin if Watt would ever have to practice again.
“Yes. There won’t be any music either,” Tomlin said.
The Steelers gave their fading playoff hopes a boost with a come-from-behind 20-19 victory over the first-place Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at Heinz Field.
The game ended in a shocking way when the Ravens scored a touchdown with 12 seconds left on the clock and then tried a go-ahead two-point conversion that failed.
The Steelers entered the day on a three-game winless streak that had dropped Pittsburgh to last place in the AFC North. A win should make the locker room as well as practice more fun now.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
