Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin Hangs Up On Jaguars Media

On Wednesdays, teams typically have a conference call with the opposing team's media. Today, Mike Tomlin had a conference call with Jacksonville Jaguars reporters and apparently didn't like some of the questions. Tomlin didn't like them so much, he hung up on the media.
Tomlin was getting questions about the Jaguars 2007 playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which is still held as a big deal in Jacksonville, as it's their last playoff win. "I understand that might have been a big game in Jacksonville but that's old news," Mike Tomlin said to the Jaguars reporters when asked about a questionable non-hold call on the game sealing play.

Three seconds passed and Vito (Stellino) began to ask a question, but Tomlin jumped in before he could finish his question.

"Thank you, have a good one."
