PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin is no longer holding back on the way NFL games are officiated.
Tomlin, a member of the NFL’s competition committee, made clear after the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ 41-17 victory Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons that he’s not at all happy with the calls trending around the league.
Asked about linebacker Bud Dupree‘s two face mask penalties, Tomlin said the calls looked legitimate, then hinted many more were not.
“But some of the other stuff, man, is a joke,” Tomlin said. “We gotta get better as a National Football League. Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. We gotta get ’em correct. And so I’m pissed about it, to be quite honest with you. But that’s all I’m gonna say on it.”
