I tweeted this out last night in reference to Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s playcalling on 3rd and 6 at the New York Jets 40-yard line with two minutes remaining in the game and a five-point lead: “This is why I like Tomlin: instead of the safe running play on 3rd down, he passes [...]
