The Pittsburgh Steelers did not make the playoffs this season with an 8-8 record, the team's worst record in the past six years; however, owner Art Rooney II gave a vote of confidence to head coach Mike Tomlin and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. "I think Mike did a good job," Rooney said. "I certainly still have a high level of confidence in Mike. I know he is working as hard as he can already, just to figure out how we can get back on the right track." As for Haley, the owner said the offense functioned at a pretty high level and was hurt by the absence of QB Ben Roethlisberger due to injury.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he has not lost confidence in QB Charlie Batch despite his poor performance in Week 12. "Just his body of work, not only that singular performance. Just his body of work, not only through this season on the practice field and in training camp and in preseason settings, but what he's done since he's been here," Tomlin said. "He's a capable, veteran guy, one that the guys believe in, one that we know is capable of providing a winning-type performance for us. That didn't occur on Sunday, but he wasn't alone."

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, rib) has injuries to a rib and his right shoulder that head coach Mike Tomlin described as a sprain to the sternoclavicular joint, which connects the sternum to the collarbone. Roethlisberger injured a rib when he was sacked early in the third quarter of the team's Week 10 game and the injury could also be a serious problem.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said there have been too many penalties on special teams this season and issued a warning Tuesday, Oct. 23, to repeat offenders. "To be quite honest with you, the multiple offenders and egregious offenders are going to be watching as opposed to playing as soon as we get some options as to who plays and who doesn't," Tomlin said. "Right now, with injuries, we have minimal options." CB DeMarcus Van Dyke, in particular, has three holding penalties in the past two games, plus an earlier penalty for going out of bounds while playing a punt.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he is not concerned about any potential rift between QB Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Roethlisberger recently described Haley's offense as dink and dunk, and there has been perceived friction between the two for some time. "I'm not worried about those interactions. If (problems) hadn't happened already, I'm sure at some point it will, and it won't be catastrophic," Tomlin said. "I'm sure we'll all move on."

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wanted to sign Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick upon his release from prison. Two things, however, prevented Tomlin from bringing Vick to Pittsburgh. The main reason was ownership was against the idea. The team was also reigning Super Bowl champs and did not need the controversy. Tomlin said he also did not want to add Vick to the mix, especially considering QB Ben Roethlisberger was dealing with a lawsuit. Tomlin felt it would have been a bad idea.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said restricted free-agent WR Mike Wallace should be signed and in camp. "Obviously, we have a desire for him to be here," Tomlin said. "We want him to be part of this thing, both short-term and long-term. We've been in negotiations with him. He's not here today. That's unfortunate for him ... I want the player here. One thing experience has taught me is this is bigger than all of us. It's bigger than Mike, it's bigger than me. So I mean that when I say it's unfortunate for him that he's not here." Wallace has refused to sign the Steelers' $2.472 million restricted free-agent tender.
