Tomlin says Steelers are ready to go


DALLAS (AP) -- Coach Mike Tomlin calls himself an even-keeled "robot" who is "just going to ride the wave" as the Pittsburgh Steelers put "the finishing touches" on their preparations for the Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers.

Tomlin, whose Steelers are going for their seventh Super Bowl title Sunday, says the team will have a "normal business day" Friday with practice followed by some free time for the players to spend with their families later in the day.

Pittsburgh will have a "dress rehearsal" Saturday in its last formal practice session before the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.

Tomlin says rookie Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, dealing with a high left ankle sprain, needs to practice Friday in order to play.
