Listening to the weekly Mike Tomlin press conference today; it's almost pointless to even have them. It's been this way almost since he came to the team but has gotten considerably worse in my opinion in the last year or so. He says so little, only giving updates on player statuses for injuries or if they are bringing in new players for workouts. Other than that, the media rarely asks him any questions anymore because he just gives them nothing. A lot of politically correct rhetoric and generalizations.
He's made it crystal clear that he'd rather not have media at training camp and would rather not be bothered with doing press conferences and other type shows.
Bill Cowher's pressers were usually more entertaining. He would aleast give you something to chew on periodically.
Everything Tomlin says to the media could be covered in a press release just as effectively. I realize he can't divulge everything to the media and you don't want to start a frenzy with anything,but man, they really are pretty boring.
