Did anyone see Mike Tomlin totally blow off John Harbaugh after the game when they were approaching for the handshake? Harbaugh congratulated him and he just walked the other way until Harbaugh pulled him back.. There is a video on NFL.com..

By Tomlin's reaction, you would believe they lost the game, poor sportsmanship.

There was absolutely no reason for Tomlin to blow off Harbaugh like that.

I've always thought of Tomlin as un upstanding, respectable coach. This just seems petty and childish.

Definitely not courteous but what do you expect? It's Steelers and Ravens, Tomlin is a jerk, nothing is new...

Yeah but there is usually some respect there, at least from what I've seen.

I know, Tomlin is a jerk. He was screaming 'bad call' at a ref earlier in the game on a completely legitimate one.

Yeah i saw that too. Tomlin has always come off (to me anyway) as a cocky jerk. No reason for this.

i'm not surprised! i actually like tomlins' take no prisoners attitude as a coach but remember 2 weeks ago he called the Ravens; "nameless gray faces!" and now this? show's how he really feels about the rivalry.

I'm glad to see that despite a loss, Harbs has humility and can be a good sport.

Doctor Foreman however... c'mon man, you're a coach, be a stand-up guy and set an example for your players...

Win and lose like a gentleman. I am obviously a lady, but I remember my father saying that all the time when I was growing up. He believed in that philosophy, and I am saddened to see that Mike Tomlin appears to not.

I'm a mama of three boys. Nothing scares or disgusts me anymore.

Exactly, the talk all week is how both teams "liked" eachother. They said Ryan Clark came over to the Ravens lockerroom after their loss 2 weeks ago and laughing and having fun. Shamed to see Tomlin this way. Had much respect for the guy as a coach till now.

Uncharacteristic of Tomlin... Think Tomlin allowed himself to get distracted on something else when he should have been focused on the coach's goodbye/congratulatory handshake... certainly his bad on this one...
