Anyone notice the jersey swaps in the background of the Antonio Brown interview after the game? Looked like Spence and Shazier swapping jerseys with a few Bengal players. I wonder if Tomlin addresses this during the week.

I think Chuck is eluding to the fact that earlier in the season, Tomlin had an issue with jersey swapping on the field and preferred the guys to do it off the field after the game

The NFL season is approaching the halfway point and that means only one thing: Mike Tomlin is ready to ban something.

The Pittsburgh Steelers coach, who forbade end-zone flips almost a year ago, is putting his foot down on the exchange of jerseys after wide receiver Antonio Brown signed and gave his shirt to Tommy Streeter, a childhood friend and member of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad.

“Jersey switching has been banned by the Steelers,” Brown said on Wednesday (via ESPN.com). “Coach doesn’t want us doing it anymore.”

Another sign of how much the players listen to Tomlin.

If Bellichek had banned that, bet you not one Patriot would be doing it again. Speaks volumes.

And the back flip Brown did in the end zone on the punt return for a TD. Tomlin banned those as well (see article above). What if he had injured or fumbled the ball through the back line on the end-zone? Pretty selfish act on brown's part, especially in this big of game.
