The Sunday pregame shows featured plenty of discussion and reports and speculation about the discipline to be imposed on the Steelers and/or coach Mike Tomlin for Tomlin’s turkey leg dance on Thanksgiving night.
Soon, the void will be filled by facts.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the review of Tomlin’s “lost placement” that placed him on the white stripe with a foot on the field in the path of Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones commences Monday morning at 345 Park Avenue. As we reported on Thursday night, the decision initially falls under the jurisdiction of executive V.P. of football operations Ray Anderson.
The source says that all options are on the table. While the smart money remains on the payment of money (a lot of it) by the team and/or Tomlin, no decisions have been made.
“All the noise out there is speculation,” the source said.
Look for a decision by the middle of the week. And look for either Steelers fans or non-Steelers fans to complain about the outcome, whatever it may be.
