Few quick notes from Mike Tomlin’s press conference
Injury Update: Brett Keisel is out, Marvel Smith is status quo. Tomlin said Bryant McFadden is close to coming back and Tomlin said Willie Parker continues to get better.
Marvel Smith will not go on IR yet, as it seems Tomlin holds out hope that he will be able to contribute at sometime this season but it is very unlikely that Smith will play this season.
Tomlin said the team needs to perform a bit better in red zone efficiency. Tomlin says the Steelers need touchdowns not field goals especially down the stretch.
Penalties remain a problem according to Tomlin and that’s another area where the Steelers need to grow.
Tomlin on Cowboys: Tomlin says the Steelers are a much better team than their record.
Tomlin praised the offensive line, especially Max Starks who could be turning the corner.
