All-22 Views Of The Mike Tomlin Kickoff Return Incident With Jacoby Jones


I know several of you are curious to see what the All-22 view of the kickoff return incident in the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens shows, but has you can see in the top two animated gifs below, it does not qualify for a Zapruder film the way that the clip from KDKA does.

You can see, however, just how close that Jacoby Jones made it to Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin before he jumped out of the way on the sideline. In addition, you can clearly see that Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen was going to hawk down Jones regardless.

In the bottom two gifs, you can see Tomlin begin his walk from the 50 yard-line just as Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham begins his approach to the kickoff. Tomlin stations himself at the Steelers 38-yard-line.

    Please give Mike the fine and move on from this mess. Talk about paralysis by analysis. Stop it already. Geesh.

  • steeltown

    Agreed. I wouldn’t even care if he was suspended. Lets just make the example and move on

  • Rick M

    Yes, everybody’s seen enough videotape to draw their own conclusions. I assume the league office will bring down the hammer this afternoon and a new debate will begin as to whether it was fair. At least it won’t be another video angle LOL (I hope).

  • DoctorNoah

    I remain unimpressed with this whole fiasco. Way, way more worried about the offensive line and the secondary.

  • Bob Kelly

    It is getting way to crazy. Fine him and lets move on. By the way what other films do the Ravens have????? Signs???? Lets see them all.

  • Douglas Andrews

    It’s a good story to keep beating in the ground now. Amazing that this situation and the famous Jason Kidd “Hit Me” stories make the headlines. Compelling sport stories must be really hard to find these days.

  • Douglas Andrews

    If Jacoby Jones was so focused on whether Tomlin was gonna move out of the way then no wonder he was ran down by C. Allen. Should’ve been running faster and concentrating on the end zone. Ok enough said lets get this fine issued and move on!

    well i saw some where the nfl sent out a tape or memo about people being on white line and to stop it . i for 1 saw many of times coaches and players with feet on field and none never told to get back then other times you see a ref telling them to move back …hes admitted he was wrong and he was…my only concern is if hes treated diff then all the other times people were warned and got caught ….if he is then i got a prob with it because that wouldnt be fare ……and if nothings done about it that wouldnt be fare either …..nfl should come out saying if your on the white line or field you get this type fine …not wait till it happens and you dont like a certain player or team and use that as a slap for it …i can see a 50,000 fine this time out …and a warning …next time its a auto suspension and a games pay ..so if the nfl had to sent out a warning of this tomlin isnt the only one whos doing this if so why werent any one else before this fined ???? guess its like we didnt see the first punch thrown but did the second …..

  • Jefferson_St_Joe

    I don’t know what view they had on the jumbotron, but the all 22 makes me think he possibly could have taken the ‘kdka step to avoid the path of the official, who was running ahead of the play for a while.

  • T R

    **clapping** good answer good answer cause u rather get hit by jacoby then the referee cause getting hit by the referee is a definite penalty.. and jacoby has the agility to avoid tomlin but that collision with the old referee would have gotten pretty bad.. LOL

  • Kenneth Wilt

    I still don’t think he was calculating enough to position himself “just slightly onto the field” with the intent of tackling or impacting the play. No coach expects the coverage to be that piss poor.

  • Objective

    I believe it was unintentional. He is heading to that spot well before there is any indication Jacoby is going to break one down that sideline. Was he able to predict the future and decided to try to get in the way? It’s seems rather clear he is heading to that spot to watch the play unfold on the screen. He is going there even before the ball is kicked.

  • Johnny Loose

    IMHO, I think if Tomlin isn’t on the sideline. Jones scores on this play. Jones clearly lets up about ten yards before he makes it to Tomlin and Allen’s angle isn’t quite deep enough to catch Jones if Jones was in fact running full speed. I’m definitely a homer for my team, but I really think Jones would have taken it to the house. GO TOMLIN!!! lol

  • HopalongCassidy

    No disrespect to all of the Tomlin fans out there but Tomlin should gladly take credit for doing that. Heck, it was the best thing he’s done on the sideline to help the Steelers all year. Maybe he should get more involved instead of just standing there with a blank expression on his face when the team is losing. Where’s the passion ? Cowher would be hollering, spitting, slobbering and jumping all over the place to fire up his team.

  • T R

    yeah Cowher would be hollering spitting and slobbering still get out coached and making bad decision.. making a big fool out of himself. so please i take tomlin over cowher anyday.

  • HopalongCassidy

    Your opinion. Others may vary.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Nope. Cowher was a joke of a coach that quit on his own team.

  • T R

    thanks william

  • disqus_B8gCPKtSrD

    The lie to cover up is always worse than the crime. If he would just come out and say that he had some thought of distracting the runner, but no intention of hitting him this would all be over and done with.
