It's been said time and time again, "The Jaguars get no respect from the National Media". After reading an article from this morning, it's no wonder. We're our own worst enemy. I wish I knew who the reporters were that were asking the questions, but I've got a really good idea of it being some of the idiots at the TU. I totally agree with Tomlin on this issue. It's 4 fucking years ago. I won't rehash what Tomlin said, but again, I agree with everyword:
Tomlin gets testy with Jacksonville media

Getty ImagesThe Steelers host the Jaguars on Sunday, and as is customary Steelers coach Mike Tomlin made himself available for a conference call with the opposing city’s media.
According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Tomlin got irritated with questions regarding a 2007 playoff game between the two teams. The Jaguars won the game, making them the first team ever to win twice in Pittsburgh in the same season. And the game ended with a critical fourth-down draw play by former Jaguars quarterback David Garrard, during which the officials missed an obvious offensive holding call.
Asked whether Tomlin complained to the league office, Tomlin said, “No.” Asked why he didn’t, he said, “Why would I?” Then, after it was explained that the call was critical to the outcome of the game, the fuse entered the bomb.
“Guys, come on man. I’m not going to cry over four-year-old spilled milk. Anybody got any legitimate questions? Goll-lly,” Tomlin said.
Per Ganguli, the reporters chuckled. Tomlin didn’t.
“Guys, that was four years ago,” Tomlin then said. “I understand that might have been a big game in Jacksonville but that’s old news. Many of those guys are no longer here and definitely many of the guys that were in Jacksonville are no longer there. Anybody got any questions relative to this week?”
After a few seconds, another reporter started to ask another question. But Tomlin hung up the phone.
Perhaps the question for the Jacksonville media is whether they’ll complain to the league office, and if not why not?
Who pays these clowns and why do they still have jobs?
--Jax Media-- It's great to meet you Dan Marino. Before we get into what you're doing these days, I just wanted to ask you, Do you remember back in ninety-nine when the Jaguars beat this shit out of your team and essentially made you retire? Well, what do you think you should have done differently on 3rd & 12 in the second quarter? SMFingH
