The Pittsburgh Steelers were victim to a taunting call already this season.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin doesn’t want to see his players take any kind of penalty, let alone one that could be avoided like taunting.

“The players will adjust, and they better adjust quickly,” Tomlin said in his Wednesday press conference.

Tomlin noted that the taunting calls were a point of emphasis and why there is no surprise at the number of taunting calls being made.

When talking about the adjustment for players and avoiding the call, Tomlin focused in on his own team saying they better be in the group that adjusts quickly.

“Specifically speaking of mine.”
