Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill.  Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks.  Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

In the stats, it was a 75-yard return, but they ended up covering much more of the field than that. During Elder’s scamper to the end zone, there was a block delivered that was originally ruled a block in the back and would have negated the touchdown.
