As if the New England Patriots needed any more incentive
to prepare for next weeks AFC Championship game, Pittsburg Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, after his team's win over Kansas City, handed them a bulletin-board worthy quote to get their blood up before each practice.
Whining just a wee bit about the events that had forced the Steelers/Chiefs Divisional Championship game to be delayed over 6 hours (ice storms), Tomlin made this locker room statement to his players:
“When you get to this point in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said.
Let’s say very little moving forward. Let’s start our preparation.
We spotted them ássh0les (the Patriots) a day-and-a-half. They played yesterday, our game got moved to tonight.
We’re gonna touch down at 4 o’clock in the fücking morning.
So be it. We’ll be ready for that áss.
But you ain’t got to tell them that we’re coming.”
Hilariously, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger then warned his teammates about running their mouths in the lead up to the big game.
“It’s a lion’s den. I’ve been there. A lot of us has been there. This ain’t gonna be fun. “Keep your mouth shut. Let’s play Steeler football and be a Steeler all week.”
The video was caught by All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown and was live streamed to Facebook.
