Mike Tomlin's Blunder Doesn't Cost the Steelers Much

Earlier this season, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin made headlines when he stepped onto the field during a kickoff return by Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens. If you don't remember, take a look at this:

The NFL finally told the Steelers today what their punishment for the incident would be: a $100,000 fine for Tomlin. That's it. Pittsburgh was not stripped of any draft picks for the incident. I'm on the fence on what the punishment should have been, but I think the NFL had the opportunity to set a precedent here: even if it was an accident, you better make sure you're not interfering in a live play from the sidelines. In that sense, I think Tomlin and the Steelers got off way too easy.

What do you think, Browns fans? Putting your disdain for the Steelers aside, do you think Pittsburgh should have been stripped of a draft pick? Or, should Tomlin's fine have been more significant?
