Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder walks across the field before an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in Landover, Md., Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014.

Kevin Gorman and I wrap up Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s press conference at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Boy, there’s a lot of meat on the bone this week, even though the season appears to have slipped through Tomlin’s fingers.

* If the Washington Redskins really want Tomlin as their new coach next year, will the Steelers entertain an offer? I think they should. Kevin gives his thoughts.

* Jaylen Samuels and Steven Nelson are now hurt. So we talk about the notion of seeing more playing time for Benny Snell Jr. and maybe Artie Burns, too.

* Tomlin hinted that he’s going to keep the game plan tight for quarterback Devlin Hodges. That’s a poor idea in my opinion. Let’s see if Kevin agrees.

* Kevin seems to think all the losing is starting to wear on Tomlin’s psyche and that cracks are showing.

* And we discuss medical carts, yellow paint and red barns.

Hear all the conversation in today’s podcast.

LISTEN: Tim Benz and Kevin Gorman cover a lot of Steelers’ news including rumors about Mike Tomlin to Redskins, player injuries, the game plan for Devlin Hodges and what all the losses doing to Tomlin
