Let's say tomorrow you were hired to clean the toilets of the New Orleans Saints. Would you then stop caring about the Falcons? And before your response is being a janitor and being a QB for a team are completely different, they really aren't.

This. I actually find the candor refreshing and it will never effect his play one iota. I would suspect that his favorite college team was UGA before going to FL, Blinn or AU. This is just typical, silly ESPN or the like driven pop culture "news." The 24 hour cycle is gonna be the death of us all. :lol:

Tomlin embraces Twitter, Chudzinski won’t

Most coaches are decidedly old school when it comes to social media.

Steelers boss Mike Tomlin is not most coaches.

Tomlin became the fifth NFL head coach with an active Twitter account yesterday, and he already has more than 60,000 followers in his first day.

His debut was typical straightforward Tomlin: “Hello Twitter. Expect no BS from me. Just straight fire!”

“This should be exciting, me delving into the social media world,” Tomlin said, via Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We spend time talking to our guys about what to do and what not to do, and I thought it would be appropriate and timely to show them. We’ll see if I can do it in a professional manner. . . .

“My kids are getting to the point in their life where I need to educate myself about it largely, so I’m killing a couple of birds with the same stone. So follow me!”

One coach who won’t be following him, or anyone, is new Browns boss Rob Chudzinski.

“I’m not a real technology guy,” Chudzinski said, via Tom Reed of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I wouldn’t even know how to get started on that. I have a hard enough time with my cell phone. I’ve got a lot going on.”

If nothing else, having an account gives Tomlin the opportunity to keep tabs on what his players are tweeting about (such that someone else in the organization isn’t already monitoring that).
