Steelers' Tomlin focuses on penalties

Steelers/NFL Videos

By The The Tribune-Review

On what the Steelers need to improve upon for their game against the Buffalo Bills:

"We've got to do a better job from a penalty standpoint. Pre-snap penalties and post-snap penalties are not a sign of a good football team, so we've got to get better in that area in a hurry."

On his self-evaluation from his first NFL game as a head coach:

"I grade myself on wins and losses, so I gave myself a passing grade. Was I perfect• Absolutely not. But I'm my worst critic."

On Bills starting linebacker Paul Posluszny, who is a Hopewell High and Penn State graduate:

"To be an opening day starter as a rookie speaks for itself. His best football is ahead of him. He's a pretty good football player right now."

On Ben Roethlisberger getting off to a good start this season:

"I know that Ben has had a heck of an offseason, and I know it's what he expected. He's a very good football player. He's going to get better."

On whether he watched the Ravens-Bengals game Monday night:

"It was on, but so was my video machine, and I didn't see much other than a few celebrations by (Bengals wideout) Chad Johnson and (Ravens safety) Ed Reed. Monday evening is a work day for us."
