On Saturday, ESPN’s Bob Holtzman raised eyebrows in league circles by reporting, more than four hours before kickoff of the Ravens-Steelers game, that the Steelers had a trick play up their sleeves.

“Two Steelers have told me, if they catch the Ravens in the right defense, they have a trick play ready to go today that they’ve never run before,” Holtzman said.* A league source predicted in response that the “Steelers will be pissed” about the advance disclosure of the play.

The source predicted right.

On Wednesday, Holtzman asked Steelers coach Mike Tomlin how much extra time is needed to prepare to face the defense of Jets coach Rex Ryan.

“It depends on whether or not you give him my plays,” Tomlin replied, per Gary Mihoces of USA Today.

Holtzman had no comment.

Everyone's talking about Rex and his head games. Mike Tomlin is NO slouch when it comes to the head games either my friend! Leaks can work both ways to get another team off their game plan.

Tomlin was shadow boxing Holtzman on the sideline.

Alittle jab at the media always keeps things interesting. With Tomlin he rarely says anything noteworthy in his pressers. It's the usual rhetoric about the teams, the matchup, the intensity, etc. Once in awhile though he'll produce a zinger that will be talked about for awhile.

Dealing with the media must just be the worse part of his job. A bunch of wanna be athletes mixed in with a few mostly illiterate ex athletes now journalists who have mandated access to Tomlin. Probably the same thing he feels when Mrs. Tomlin makes him take out the trash.:helmet:

This could go down in Steeler lore as a classic, like:

That's how you be great, and others.

Smooth delivery.
