REPORT: NFL Says There Were "Several" Headset Issues Week 1. I Guess It Wasn't Just A Gillette Thing.



From ProFootballTalk:
Despite the absence of NFL head coaches calling out other teams during press conferences or otherwise, problems indeed arose on Sunday.

“There were several communications issues yesterday as normal,” a league spokesman told PFT on Monday. “We are following up with the clubs.”

Communications problems are common. So common that it’s hard not to wonder whether the NFL doesn’t simply get rid of the communications systems entirely — or at least bring back the hard-wired system as a backup to the fluky wireless devices.

I'm not saying Mike Tomlin should hold a press conference and bow to the knees of Robert Kraft (although, it would be nice if he did).

But if Tomlin has any class, maybe during his weekly presser he will casually mention that he is sorry for accusing the Patriots organization of tampering with headsets on Thursday night.  Just put it out there.  Be a stand-up guy, take the high road and show that his organization doesn't stoop to the level of excuse making after a shitty loss.

But I'm not holding my breath.  I mean, we're talking about the Steelers--an organization that is okay with having a serial rapist as a quarterback.  I don't see them being concerned about their brand or being a moral compass in this league.

What pisses me off is that, with his accusation of tampering with headsets, Tomlin opened the door for other head coaches to shit on the Patriots all season.  If he publicly apologizes, it will go a long way towards the Patriots shaking the reputation of being serial cheaters.

But like I said, I'm not holding my breath.  This guy works for an organization that seems to embrace douchebaggery.
