Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, had, has, and will continue to have jokes.

One of the NFL’s foremost masters of shade was back at it again this week, taking a dig at the New England Patriots during his commencement address at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh.

“I’ll proceed with a couple of assumptions,” Tomlin said. “And I realize that assumptions are very dangerous. There’s a cliche about assuming, isn’t it? It can make Patriots out of you and me.”

Tomlin’s call-out to New England is in reference to Antonio Brown’s ill-fated Facebook Live session, where Tomlin was heard calling Pittsburgh’s AFC championship opponent a term of endearment that rhymes with “Massholes.”

He continued.

“I’ll proceed with the assumption that, in some form or fashion, one or more of you out there are somehow live-streaming this on the Internet,” Tomlin said. “And I’ll behave accordingly.”

Nice burn and sage advice for today’s college graduates.
