REPORT: STEELERS, TOMLIN FACE BIG FINE, COULD LOSE DRAFT PICK OVER SIDELINE MOVE - Mike Tomlin’s blunder when he stepped onto the playing field during a kickoff return by the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night might cost the Pittsburgh Steelers big-time.
According to an ESPN report, Tomlin and the Steelers both could face big fines, and that the Steelers could lose a draft pick. ESPN reported that Tomlin and the Steelers could face six-figure fines.
Tomlin was on the white sideline stripe during a kickoff return by Jacoby Jones, and at one point stepped onto the field. The incident caused Jones to slow up, allowing Pittsburgh defensive back Cortez Allen to run him down and tackle him. Pittsburgh was not penalized for the incident during the game.
Tomlin apologized for the incident after the game and said he did not believe that he interfered with Jones.
The NFL is expected to review the incident on Monday.
ESPN reported Sunday that Tomlin is not likely to be suspended. But the NFL Network reported that the league might make an example of the Steelers in an effort to warn coaches to watch where they stand during games.
The Jets were fined $100,000 in 2010 when strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi stepped onto the field and tripped a Miami Dolphins player.
Tomlin is on the league’s competition committee, and The NFL Network reported that the league may take that into consideration. The Ravens, who led 13-7 at the time of the incident, won the game, 22-20.
Mike Tomlin and the Steelers could face a six-figure fine and lose a draft pick after coach Tomlin stepped in the field of play.

A tiny Washington high school is home to perhaps the largest running back anywhere in the country — amateur or professional.
At 400 pounds, Tony Picard racked up 576 yards rushing and seven touchdowns this year at White Swan High School. The Yakima Herald-Republic reports that his coach put Picard at running back because he was so athletic for his size. Many NFL running backs weigh half as much as Picard.
Current NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles weighs in at 208 pounds. Picard’s size also rivals some of the largest NFL linemen around.
Video of Picard’s rumbling runs has drawn more than two million views on YouTube. The clips show the 17-year-old plowing through defenders while also showing swiftness on his feet. Picard hopes to go on to play college football. (Photo: Andy Sawyer/Yakima Herald-Republic/The Associated Press)
Wow this isn’t even fair just bulldozing through the competition.
Shock and Awe: An Alabama Crimson Tide fan perfectly encapsulates what America is feeling right now after the Tide lost to their rival, the Auburn Tigers, after a 57-yard field goal attempt came up short and Auburn ran the ball in the endzone for a touchdown.
The look of pure shock and disbelief as Auburn upsets Alabama 34-28. Auburn’s Chris Davis returned a missed FG for 100 yards to score the game-winning TD!
