Tomlin motivates with Denver's No. 1 message

PITTSBURGH -- The more coach Mike Tomlin keeps talking about it, the more agitated his players get.

Exactly the response Tomlin wants from his Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tomlin keeps referring to the Broncos as having "the world's best defense," a reference to Denver's spot atop the NFL team yardage statistics. He mentioned it during the weekly team meeting. Before practice on Wednesday. Before practice on Thursday. And he'll likely keep saying it until game time Monday.

By constantly reminding that the Broncos (6-1) are playing better statistically than the Steelers (5-2) are, Tomlin is trying to motivate both his offense and his defense. He wants his offense determined to prove it can move the ball, and his defense mad that it's no longer No. 1.

my dad had some extras to the game but refuses to sell to a steelers' fan ... it's a shame some of our "devoted" season ticketholder peers aren't as devoted as they should be.

as for tomlin "motivating" his team with statements about the Broncos' "great defense" - if that's what it takes to get his team "up" for a huge game like this, then he has a bigger problem than he realizes. the players should be motivated by the sheer magnitude of the game itself.

i plan on giving **** to every steelers' fan after the game - those assholes deserve it after the **** we put up with after the AFC title game 4 years ago;
