    Yes, big trouble. A NY Jets asst. coach got in trouble for the same a couple of years ago.

    I like the rumor of taking draft picks, fines are a drop in the bucket to these guys.

    No, he didn't have any effect on the play.

    If you watched the video, Tomlin sure laughed about it on the field immediately after he did it.

    No affect really. Cowboys fan here, don't like the Steelers.

    What the guy should have done was run into Tomlin and gotten at least another 15 yards if not the TD.

    The refs should have awarded the runner a TD. It's in the rules. From Gregg Easterbrook:
    Whether it was intentional or not is irrelevant. Tomlin should be fined and the Steelers lose a draft pick as well. When players on the field make dumb mistakes, it can cost their team a TD or the game. Same should apply to a coach.

    The next team that plays the Steelers should put a bounty on Tomlin.

    No. He would have been caught either way. Still a penalty though.

    FYI - The fine is light IMO. The draft picks thing is stupid.

    No possible way you can determine this. Tackles are missed all the time.

    the fine is appropriate but taking a draft pick for something that did not affect the final outcome of the game is stupid
