Steelers Coach Punctuates NFL Thanksgiving Games With Tripping Incident [Video]

“It provides a better perspective for me,” Tomlin said. “I lost my placement as he broke free and saw at the last second how close I was to the field of play.

“I was wrong.  I accept responsibility for it.”

And Jones, though he gestured at the Steelers sideline right after he was tackled, wasn’t pointing fingers.

“I don’t blame other people’s actions,” Jones said. “I still should have scored.” – nypost

Cowboys Rally To Clutch Win?!, Lions Destroy Packers?!


uring all the Thanksgiving NFL action, Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin stole the headlines on stupidity?! Tomlin decided to try to trip one of the opposing team (Baltimore Ravens) players, even putting his foot on the field of play, as that player (Jacoby Jones) ran down the sideline to what could have potentially been a touchdown run?! The referee who was running right behind Tomlin down the sideline didn’t catch the trip, and no penalty was incurred?! Thank goodness for the Ravens, the Steelers missed the two-point conversion on a final score with just over a minute to go! Karma kept things straight, and the Ravens held onto a 22-20 win! Also, check out the infamous Jets tripping incident details below after the jump…

Now remember this incident isn’t original; the NY Jets were caught tripping a player at this time of year in 2010?! Jets strength and conditioning coach (at the time) Sal Alosi tripped a Miami Dolphin player, CB Nolan Carroll, and was consequently fined $25K and suspended! Check out the video directly above!

Do you think that Mike Tomlin will be fined or suspended for his Thanksgiving theatrics?! Please leave some feedback below!
