With all the controversy and cheating scandals that have surrounded the New England Patriots this past offseason, you’d think the Pats would be nuts to try and pull a fast one on the Steelers during Thursday’s season opener at Gillette Stadium.
But Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin isn’t so sure.
After the Steelers’ coaching headsets malfunctioned during the first half of New England’s 28-21 victory to open the season, Tomlin was clearly irked during his post-game press conference with the media.
According to Tomlin, the team’s headsets were playing the Patriots’ radio broadcast instead of relaying coach-to-coach communication through much of the first half. That would be a nice job of trolling by the Pats if it was indeed intentional, but that may not have been the case.
