Steelers HC Mike Tomlin 1/6 Tuesday Press Conference, Roethlisberger Ready To Go

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media on Tuesday in preparation for the playoff match-up this Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. Tomlin started with his usual praise of the opposition. Tomlin praised the play of Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson, Antonio Gates and Darren Sproles on the offensive side of the ball. Tomlin said the Steelers are preparing as if LaDainian Tomlinson will play and will be ready for both running backs. Tomlin said the Chargers have a great screen game that needs paying attention to. The Steelers had a great day of work yesterday and the team is off today. They will continue work on Wednesday. Injury wise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not have a short leash because of his recent concussion and Tomlin is not worried about him. Other injured players, safety Ryan Clark and linebacker James Harrison, who missed the game against Cleveland are practicing and should be able to start Sunday. Health wise the Steelers are in great shape.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
