PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – In his teleconference with the Baltimore media, Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin joked about last year’s gaffe, which found him in the field of play during a Jacoby Jones kickoff return and subsequently cost the Ravens a touchdown.
As Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com writes, Tomlin talked about last years incident that cost him a $100,000 fine from the league, but added that he takes full responsibility for his actions.
Tomlin’s actions initially brought about a punishment from the league that would cost the team a draft pick, but that version of the punishment was later rescinded.
The Steelers enter Thursday night’s game with a record of 1-0 and will look to put a little extra space between them and their division rival as the Ravens opened the season with a week one loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
