While the Pittsburgh Steelers have been heavily penalized in 2018 , it would be fair to say that not all the calls made against them have actually warranted a flag. Just like in every NFL game this season, questionable decisions by referees have been impacting results on a weekly basis and the Steelers have seen more than enough penalties incorrectly called against them through the first five weeks.As a member of the competition committee, Mike Tomlin has appeared reluctant to be drawn into the debate surrounding the standard of referring and recent changes in emphasis regarding certain rules, but that all seemed to change in the wake of his team’s win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5. When speaking to the media after the game, Tomlin was clearly unhappy with the way the game had been officiated. While he had no issue with either of the hands to the face penalties called against Bud Dupree, the same could not be said about some of the other flags thrown during the contest.Presumably upset by the call against T.J. Watt for roughing the passer, or the one against Jon Bostic for the same perceived infraction, there can be little doubt that his complaints will fall on deaf ears, but interesting to note that he finally said something.Watt was equally confused about what he was supposed to do when he was obviously trying to avoid Matt Ryan and barely made contact with the quarterback.Even though he knows he could have done nothing different on the play, the young defender is still preparing himself for a fine, as reported by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. Big brother J.J. was also left trying to understand what his younger sibling was meant to do.When it came to the penalty called on Bostic, not even the referees could help explain to the middle linebacker what he had done wrong on the play.Considering some of the calls made in a number of contest just this weekend alone, it is highly unlikely the penalties called against the Steelers will garner much attention from the league office. The NFL’s problems extend far beyond some bogus roughing the passer penalties in Pittsburgh Youth Joe Haden Jersey , with incorrect decisions once again directly impacting the outcomes of some close games in Week 5.Update: While the league is clearly prepared to nothing about the horrible way they are calling games, they are prepared to consider fining coaches for daring to speak the truth about the situation. That makes sense. The matchup was a mismatch. And it ended predictably: with Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Heyward shedding Tennessee Titans rookie guard Aaron Stinnie and driving quarterback Blaine Gabbert into the ground.Heyward popped up and turned to the Pittsburgh sideline with his palms raised after picking up his first sack of the preseason early in the second half of a 16-6 victory on Saturday.Asked if the pose was his way of asking the coaching staff if it had seen enough, Heyward just laughed."No, but it was something close to that," Heyward said. "Because I should have got the sack way earlier and I was messing around."A not uncommon sentiment for the defending AFC North champions. A week after getting pushed around a bit by Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers in a lopsided loss in Green Bay, Pittsburgh's defense responded by limiting Tennessee to 52 yards in the first half and keeping them out of the end zone until well after Heyward and the rest of the first stringers had departed.
Was it the "varsity" football coach Mike Tomlin was looking for? Heyward isn't quite sure. But it's as close as it gets in August."We game-planned a lot more this game," Heyward said. "This is something you continue to do as preseason goes along. You start to add more and more. This was a dress rehearsal (but) it was one game. We don't put a lot of stock into it, but just a good showing."Pittsburgh, which set a franchise record while leading the NFL with 56 sacks in 2017, never let Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota get comfortable.Vince Williams, fresh off signing a new four-year contract last Thursday, took Mariota down in the first half.So did defensive end Stephon Tuitt as the Steelers mixed and matched their defensive alignment far more frequently than they did in either of their first two preseason matchups."We don't show all of our cards, but that's part of the game Cheap Terrell Edmunds Jersey ," Heyward said. "We're putting little tidbits out there, stuff we've been working on. We'll just keep evolving. That's not something we're set with but that's part of the game. We have so many different fronts. Everybody has to be willing to play different spots and we'll be ready to go next game."Tomlin has stressed the need for better fundamentals during training camp, particularly when it comes to tackling.The Titans did little on the ground to take some of the pressure off Mariota. Running backs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis combined for just 23 yards rushing."We are just trying to get after it," cornerback Joe Haden said. "We are just trying to make plays. As long as our communication and stuff is right, we have the talent."Including, Haden believes, on the back end. Rookie first-round pick Terrell Edmunds showcased why the Steelers took him with the 28th overall selection, stepping in front of Mariota's pass late in the second quarter and returning it 30 yards.Edmunds wasn't focused on his electric pick as much as the resiliency showed by the starters after Green Bay moved the ball with relative ease."Last week we took a bad 'L,'" Edmunds said. "We don't want to take any 'Ls' even if it is preseason. It's a big practice. It's a big open practice you could say."There's one more to go before things start to get serious. The Steelers (2-1) finish up their exhibition schedule Thursday night against Carolina. Heyward and the rest of Pittsburgh's bold-faced names will get the night off.For rookies such as inside linebacker Matthew Thomas — an intriguing prospect whose speed has caught the attention of the coaching staff and who ran with the starters for a handful of snaps on Saturday — it will be one last opportunity to show Tomlin they're worthy of one of the 53 roster spots. For the starters, it will be one last chance to catch their breath before the real grind begins."I think (Saturday) was a good stand for us to be able to have as many defensive players out there and play pretty well," Haden said."I think it's just the standard. This is something we want to continue to do and as long as we get more and more reps and everybody is healthy going into the season, we should be fine."
