Mike Tomlin Personifies 'No Fun League' with Steelers Antics

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 18, 2013

Mike Tomlin has had it up to here with his Pittsburgh Steelers. 

With Pittsburgh having won only one of its first five games, the NFL's seventh-longest-tenured head coach has resorted to totalitarian measures to pull his team out of their early-season funk. 

After banning pingpong in the locker room, Tomlin passed an edict forbidding his players from doing somersaults into the end zone during games. But when one considers that the Steelers are among the league's worst teams in touchdowns, one is left to ponder the significance of such a move. 

It's simple: Tomlin is working to turn up the heat on his team in any way he can. After an abysmal start has left the Steelers in the basement of the AFC North, he can't start digging them out of the lurch soon enough.
