Tomlin: No Opinion On Seymour Fine

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -The Pittsburgh Steelers improved to 7-3 on the year with a 35-3 drubbing of the Oakland Raiders. Now, the focus has shifted to Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Head coach Mike Tomlin talked to the media during his weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon. It was no surprise that the first question he took was about Richard Seymour.

Seymour was ejected in the second quarter for slugging Ben Roethlisberger in the head after a touchdown pass.

Tomlin said he didn’t have an opinion about the $25,000 fine assessed to Seymour. He said his focus is on things having to do with the Steelers. He went on to say that the fine is between Seymour and the NFL.

The Steelers are now looking ahead to their road matchup with the Buffalo Bills (2-8) on Sunday.

While it may look like an easy win on paper, Buffalo has won their last two games. Prior to those wins, the team lost to Baltimore, Kansas City and Chicago by a combined total of nine points.

Tomlin is looking forward to playing a team like the Bills because it will keep his players sharp ahead of a Week 13 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.

You can watch Sunday’s game on KDKA-TV at 1 p.m.

    Seymour should have gotten $100,000 fine for the hit on Ben. It makes no sense. Then the NFL is fining Harrison cuz he knows how to play the game… not by taking cheap shots. Seymour is a moron right up there with Godell. Both should be wiped out from the league.

    WOW BIG DOUBLE STANDARD IN NFL. STEELER PLAYERS GET HUGE FINES FOR JUST DOING THEIR JOBS. SEYMOUR ALWAYS BEEN A DIRTY PLAYER. WHAT TOTAL BS. THE OFFICIALS FROM SUNDAYS GAME SHOULD BE FINED FOR THEIR PATHETIC CALLS OF PERSONAL FOULS THAT WERE CLEARLY NOT PENALTIES. EACH WEEK IN THE NFL OFFICIALS ARE GRADED AND THE ENTIRE CREW DESERVES A BIG FREAKIN “F” ALSO MOST OFFICIALS ARE NOT ONLY TOOOO OLD BUT TOOOOO SLOW AND BLIND TO DO A GOOD JOB. ALL OFFICIALS NEED TO BE UNDER 40 AND IN GOOD SHAPE NOT MIDDLE AGED SLOW OUT OF SHAPE OLD GUYS WAKE UP NFL MARK IN FLORIDA
