Steelers Mike Tomlin Titans Post Game Press Conference Week 5

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his post game press conference following the Steelers week 5 win against the Tennessee Titans at Heinz Field. Tomlin opened by saying it was a good bounce back week for the team coming off the loss last week and he thought it was the appropriate response and that they played together today. He thought they played well in all three phases and made necessary plays when they were needed.

Tomlin updated the injuries suffered in the game. James Farrior (shoulder), Heath Miller (shoulder), Maurkice Pouncey (right knee), Hines Ward (chest) and Isaac Redman (leg cramps) are not expected to be serious injuries. Marcus Gilbert (shoulder) injured the same shoulder that he hurt against the Colts and he will be monitored closely.

Below is the audio from the presser.



    Great win for the Steelers! Hope it spurs them on for future games. Personally, I still think the running game is an area of concern. Though Redman and Dwyer should be commended for running hard, their overall numbers were so-so:

    Redman… 15/49 for 3.3 per carry.
    Dwyer… 10/31 for 3.1 per carry if you subtract the big run.

    Kudos to the line for giving Ben time to throw his 5 TDs.

    it seemed that we ran well till Gilbert became injured…not sure if that was because of Scott or the Titans tightning on defense

  • Ron Kelley

    There are a lot of kudo’s to go around for the Steelers. Too many to mention individually. But, I thought the following were the real keys:
    – Ben stopped holding onto the ball – he threw it on time.
    – Redman & Dwyer hit the holes vs jitterbugging
    – Hoke & Keisel got penetration.
    – Good coaching job for a change

    Kudos to Ben and the Steelers….my take is he had better protection but does well when he is hurt because he stays in the pocket
