That’s New York Jets linebacker (and former Ratbird) Bart Scott voicing his displeasure with pretty much every prognosticator riding New England’s jock for the last two months. Give Sal Pal a lot of credit for remaining calm while a crazed maniac cuts a promo with murderous intent in his eyes. Sal has bigger balls than Tom Brady. If that was Tommy Terrific conducting the interview, he’d just spike the microphone in the ground at the first sign of danger.
Scott’s WWE-style antics present an interesting contrast with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since the epic comeback against the Ravens on Saturday, I’ve heard many members of Steeler Nation wonder what Mike Tomlin said to his team at halftime. Tomlin is an interesting guy because he strikes me as a fiery and passionate man but unlike Bill Cowher doesn’t have spittle-spewing nuclear meltdowns on the sideline. Still, people have assumed he reamed the team a new one after that sloppily played first half.
Actually, he didn’t. Hines Ward said on his Facebook page that “no rah-rah” speeches were given nor needed. Ryan Clark was on local talk radio yesterday and backed Hines up. He said the only challenge put to the team was Dick LeBeau telling the defense, “They forced their turnovers. What are you guys gonna do?” The Steelers let their actions do the inspiring, not their words.
Oh. and a little “Renegade” doesn’t hurt, either.
