PostSubject: Tomlin brings own approach   Tomlin brings own approach EmptyWed Dec 28, 2011 1:12 am

By Mark Kaboly, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW

Mike Tomlin showed during the past three years that he isn't interested in resting players in a regular-season finale, regardless of whether playoff seeding had been locked up.

So with a chance of the Steelers climbing from the AFC's fifth seed to possibly the top seed — and getting a first-round bye — with a win at Cleveland on Sunday, Tomlin's approach isn't about to change. Even when it comes to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"The guys who are deemed healthy to play will prepare and ultimately play for us this weekend," Tomlin said at his weekly news conference Tuesday.

Tomlin adopted that approach after resting key players like Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu and Hines Ward in a meaningless Week 17 game at Baltimore in 2007. The Steelers lost to the Ravens, then lost the following week to Jacksonville at Heinz Field in a wild-card playoff game.

Tomlin has not rested his starters in a season finale since.

"There are some scenarios that can unfold that we can improve our playoff position. We are aware of that," Tomlin said. "We are also aware that all of those scenarios include us winning this football game."

Tomlin wouldn't say whether Roethlisberger will practice Wednesday after missing last week's game against the St. Louis Rams with a high-ankle sprain. But he said Charlie Batch's performance against the Rams — 15 of 22 for 208 yards — would not impact his decision.

A year ago, Tomlin rested Roethlisberger most of the second half against the Browns when the Week 17 game got out of hand. The Steelers needed to win to clinch the No. 2 seed, a first-round bye and the division title.

Tomlin hasn't ruled out that scenario for Sunday.

I'm not so sure that this injury is worth the risk. As a coach, you've got to weigh the rewards vs. consequences. Knowing how aggressive the browns were in the first game, Tomlin needs to rethink his agenda. Is it regular season victories or conquering the post season?

Ben may be healthy enough but I honestly believe that regardless of scenario you don't play him the entire game. As for other injuries, I think some other players should be limited too - Woodley comes to mind.

Yup, as well as the Denver and Oakland games...which means the Bengals will have something to play for also.

Which probably means the Ravens game will be aired in my area over the Steelers game. Tomlin brings own approach 2913999526

Which also means I'll have to shell out another $45.00 (third time this year) to get the Sunday ticket for the day! Tomlin brings own approach 2913999526 Tomlin brings own approach 2913999526


I guess I should have just gotten the ticket for the whole damn year at this rate. Tomlin brings own approach 2087824411 Tomlin brings own approach 294855916
