Tomlin was asked after the game about Dupree's infraction and used the opportunity to share his feelings on what he felt were other blown calls.
"Those look like legitimate calls, we got to be better there, but some of the other stuff, man, is a joke," Tomlin told reporters, via via the Steelers' official website. "We got to get better as a National Football League.
"Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. We got to get them correct, and so I'm pissed about it, to be quite honest with you, but that's all I'm going to say on it."
Meanwhile, what makes Tomlin's comments noteworthy surrounds his position as a member of the NFL competition committee.
NFL EVP of Football Operations Troy Vincent has been in touch with Tomlin regarding his comments and it is being reviewed for a possible fine, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday. As Rapoport notes, post-game comments are often given more latitude because of the emotion involved.
With Tomlin now joining the fray, the release of Week 5's officiating video later in the week will certainly command eyeballs as NFL senior vice president of officiating Al Riveron explains what happened on certain penalties around the league.
