Jim Zorn and Mike Tomlin have very different approaches to coaching up their teams. Zorn, in his first year with the Redskins, had his best player facetiously refer to him as a "genius" on a local radio show earlier this week and he dealt with it by, well, not really dealing with it.
Tomlin, almost two years into his stint in Pittsburgh, is a little more proactive about keeping his players in line. Running back Willie Parker, who has battled injuries and ineffectiveness for most of the season, popped off to the media about the team needing to get back to "Steelers football." Translation: Bruce Arians' two-tight end offense ain't conducive to running the ball, which is what he does best.
When asked about Parker's comments at his press conference, Tomlin wasn't happy. Exactly the opposite, in fact.
