The Pittsburgh Steelers have every right to be fired up after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs for the right to face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. I just don’t think head coach Mike Tomlin expected his post-game speech to be livestreamed by WR Antonio Brown on Facebook.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin on Patriots: "We spotted those assholes a day and a half...so be it. We'll be ready for their ass." pic.twitter.com/MB4kLwVgIz— Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) January 16, 2017
“When you get to this point in the journey, not a lot needs to be said,” Tomlin said to his team after the game. “Let’s say very little moving forward. Let’s start our preparations. We spotted those a—holes a day and a half. They played yesterday, our game got moved to tonight. We gonna touch down at 4 o’clock in the f—ing morning. So be it- we’ll be ready for their ass.”
Someone is also heard telling the team to not make too many waves on social media (oops) and to keep a low profile, likely in reference to Steelers coach Joey Porter’s arrest after Pittsburgh’s wild card round victory.
Tomlin doesn’t say anything that I wouldn’t expect Bill Belichick to say behind the scenes. But you can be certain that the Patriots will see this video and use it to increase their focus over the next week.
