The Steelers are 0-4, which means their season is basically lost. They're not mathematically eliminated from the postseason yet, but the list of successful teams that started out this badly is very short. That's not stopping Mike Tomlin from trying to right the ship, however, as he's decided to make sure the team is concentrating only on winning. Tomlin has banned all recreational games in the Steelers' locker room, preventing the team from playing pingpong or pool or, say, Madden. If they win on Sunday against the Jets, we're seriously going to consider giving all our game consoles to charity.

Here's a sampling of what readers had to say in our Facebook conversation on the story:

Banning games?

Football coaches are ostensible masters of eliminating distractions, but we're not sure that games -- board, video or otherwise -- are really the problem here.


What do you make of Mike Tomlin banning all games in the Steelers' locker room?
