Oakland Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers: "We will unleash HELL" - Mike Tomlin

When I read the words below by Mike Tomlin, I got fired up: (Mid you I had just woken up this morning and went from ZERO to 60 in about 2.2 seconds)

"We will unleash hell here in December because we have to. We won't go in a shell. We'll go into attack mode, because that's what's required." - Pittsburgh Post Gazette


LaMarr Woodley asked Mike Tomlin for an explanation and here is what he said: (From PFT)
"I asked [Tomlin] that today in practice," Woodley said, "what he meant by that.  He said, 'We're not going to sit back and get hit in the mouth.  We're not going to be surprised by anything.  We're going to do the attacking.  We're going to throw the first punch.  That's what that means. We're bringing it.'  He smiled about it [when I asked], but I wanted to know what did he mean by that, and he told me what it was."

Of course, my second thought was, "Why did'nt the Raiders go into Hell Unleashing Mode 4 weeks ago?".

I mean, there is a time and place for everything and I'd think that Hell Unleashing mode would be appropriate after getting punched in the face by Denver or the Jets. Then again, Tom Cable, prefers the Stay Puff Marsh Mellow Approach: (In referrence to the team's passing game against Dallas)

"When you look at it on film, it's literally a foot here, a foot there from being a heck of a throw and a great completion," Cable said Friday. "So, if you look at that, that's something that will just naturally get better and better.

"But that's an exciting part of our team, because you can see it coming now."
