    I know he won't, but like I said, he aught to. I'm not trying to be snarky with you. I'm just really getting tired of this guy. He is basically nothing but a smooth talking liar at this point. He will say and do anything to cover up the disfunction on this team. AB clearly shouldnt have carried an injury designation. I'm just not buying it.

    Either Bradley, Olsavsky, Porter, or Danny Smith will be sacrificed to get the media and fans off their back.

    Ben will continue to be Ben. Same with AB. Ho-Hum drafting this spring with bargain basement FA signings to fill gaping holes in the defense.

    :facepalm:

    I think he liked a post from Jimmy Garoppolo too talking about how he's switching from cinnamon toast crunch to apple backs.. Complete POS

    When the crybaby didn't win the MVP, it felt like a kick to his vagina.

    Press conferences seem like a bit of a relic of the past in this day and age.

    Unless it’s to make a specific announcement, it seems like just an exercise in getting to the end for all concerned.

    Leaks to “insiders” seems far more the way to get news across.

    I agree. I loved his comment to drew the jackass agent.

    Brown has issues man. I mean the idiot was tweeting during presser.
    One reason I don't dislike Tomlin as much as some is because we don't have a clue what goes on in locker room. He gives the same answers to media every week cause it's not anyone's business. He seemed different today. If u don't like him then today didn't change anything but I can tell u. It was different

    I listened and a lot of it was what we expected but I did kinda feel sorry for him having to manage a bunch of cry babies. He did admit he was compensated enough to handle such crap but it sure felt like he was really let down by AB.

    If the team is gonna keep picking these fragile ego players, then they are gonna need a hard nosed ass kicking coach to keep them in line. I just don’t think that’s Tomlin’s style. And it’s obvious his style doesn’t reach this group of players.

    I think Tomlin just tried to thread the needle of providing an accurate injury report while making it clear that AB basically walked out.

    There were some good little nuggets though;

    -he hadn't talked to AB since before the game Sunday
    -AB wasn't returning calls to anyone within the organization
    -he never took the scheduled MRI

    As for all the "we'll information gather, blah, blah, blah..." on not only AB but the ILBs and other folks that doesn't bother me that much. I'm definitely of the praise in public, criticize in private camp when it comes to management.

    We’ll see what happens. You never know in sports, but I think AB is gone. The interview with Harrison is probably some sort of a plea to be traded and a tirade against MT. I just want all of the clubhouse cancers gone. I’d prefer to go 4-12 than 9-6-1 with all of this drama.

    Exactly. Belichick listed Brady as probably with a shoulder injury on every injury report for two or three years just to show how little respect he had for the system.

    I am curious to know if AB was docked a game check for this week. I am really surprised no one asked that.

    There is a difference between that and fabricating an injury to cover up the fact that a player is AWOL.

    Remember when Blount left the game early, he was released the next day, and that wasn't even an important game like this one was.

    This...Is almost like demanding, without saying it ( then he'll look bad ) like he already doesn't...To be traded...

    Everything that dumb ass does has ulterior motives...He wants out, and is gonna keep stirring the pot

    Blount was nowhere near the player AB is.

    Remember when Cedric Wilson was immediately released after a domestic incident, while Dan Rooney defended James Harrison for a domestic incident a week later?

    The standard is the standard and that standard is "Can you play?" If the answer is yes you get a lot of leeway.

    Nice of AB to swing the spotlight from Tomlin to himself.

    No he wasn't docked a game check because he was just inactive. If he was suspended by MT for the game he would of lost 1/17 (one game) Of his annual paycheck. MT was being nice and a player's coach to not hurt his paycheck.

    Ohhhhhh “the darkest hour”.
    Guess it doesn’t mean anything because they were losing.
    Never should have been behind.
