remember when the steelers came out in the first half 2 years ago and stomped the patriots? if this situation comes around again would you want the steelers to run the clock out in the 2nd half or pour it on? I for one would love to see the steelers go for 4th and 1 on the patriots side of the 50 with a 2 touchdown plus lead. belichick and the patriots have disrespected the league with the spying and now add to the insult every week they run the score up. I'd like to see a taste of their own medicine...would tomlin even do it?

No way. Let the Steelers keep being the Steelers. And the Pats can continue to be the classless ones.

he could, but I don't think he will. he's a steeler, he will go with his team, give their best, win, run out the clock, shake hands and go to the lockeroom.

at least that's what I hope

What would be really fun is for a team like the dolphins to run up the score on them

I don't care if we score 1 point more than that do...this is about getting a 10th win and nothing more. The bigger came against the Pats will most likely come later on.

i would rather see another team do it as well but their schedule is gravy after the steelers. I guess i just want to look at brady's and belichicks face when their down 30 points and denied a punt. it would be more embarassing if miami did it lol

There is a difference between running the clock out and playing too conservative and losing games... I remember a few games that the Steelers didn't make plays in the second half and just played conservative and lost games they were winning.

We must keep the hot potato bouncing, but no running up the score. The Steelers are known for class, no need to ruin our reputation against a totally classless team.

Good point. The best D is a good offense. Teams should look to score(TD's) every time they have the ball reguardless of the existing score.

This may be an overlooked point in the game Mon. The Ravens in the 4th Quarter twice went 3 and out. Had they been able to sustain a drive(on either) and score even 3 pts the Pats could have only tied. That's if they had the time, because the time used on the clock would have been that much less at the end. I think they would have run out of time. I hope I explained that clearly.
We have all seen enough games were teams with good leads lost games in the final minutes.

Amen! :cheers:

That being said, however, with the way things have been bouncing in the Cheatsies' favor in the 2 minute drill over the last few weeks, though, I'd really like the Steelers to have at least a 10 point lead on them at the 2 minute warning.

Pats schedule is 'gravy''? Look at the Steelers' schedule. It's BEEN gravy all year. 32nd toughest in the league.

The offenses 'job' is to score points. There may be secondary tasks, like running the clock off while driving to score, but the offense has not done it's job if it is punting.

Sure there are exceptions, but they mainly relate to their own team, i.e., ball at own 1 in bad weather, then the goal may be just to get enough yards to punt.

But no team should have a goal of going out on 1st down with the intent of kneeling 3 times and punting.

Holy shit - are you kidding me? Other than the Cowboys and the Colts, the Pats have played (and will play out the season) against grunge teams (3 in their own division twice) with a combined record of 49-71.

Their is no safe "cushion" against the Pats. If the Steelers are up 21 with 3 minutes to go, I'd still throw on first down from my own 10. The Pats are the only team in the league I would say that about.

I'd rather beat 'em TWICE by a single-point, than rub their faces in it now, only to infuriate them for a possible playoff match-up

Obviously crew1954 is a patsies troll, but I have to say if you would have seen the Bengals game last week, you would have seen us give the ball to a very explosive offense on a short field 3 times, and they came away with 3 pts . . . so maybe your crappy team feels it need to run up the score, but the Steelers actually have a good defense and are able to stop teams. That being said, I hope we beat them by as much as possible to drive the point home.

Are you serious? How in the world could the Stillers run up a score? It's not like the offense is capable. Only way they could run up the score is if the Patriots somehow continue to fumble inside their own 30 and get picked off continiously for scores which are so far from being reality it isn't worth discussing.

They simply are a run first control the clock team which really hasn't changed from what Cowher was doing. Toss in a few deep balls and you have the same offense from the previous coaching staff.

WHAT, TROLL??? You have got to be kidding me... I seem to remember the Steelers having a very decent differential in the area of points earlier on this season... Also, control the clock seems to be working in 9 of our last 12 games... Do what you have to in order to win and keep the control of the game going.

Don't worry, when the Men in Black (and Gold) take control of the clock and the game this weekend, you will see that this is a GREAT game plan...(as long as we maintain control of the clock!)

Oh, boy, I went and did it, didn't I? I let a TROLL get to me and get a rise out of me...

Can't wait until this game gets going...

I'd really like the Steelers to have at least a 10 point lead on them at the 2 minute warning.

I don't think that's enough. The way these a-holes play, only a 17 point lead for the Steelers inside the 2 minute warning will allow me to feel comfortable.

We should try winning the game first and keep at least a ten point lead in the fourth quarter before ever thinking about running the score up!

I just want to know that they end up with 0 points. That would make the season for me. Shutting out the Pats in Gillette when they're setting all the scoring records. I bet they'd be pretty damn pissed if that happened!

I don't care whether it's classy or not; I'd always like to see someone run the score up against New England, because that team can eat a bowl of dicks. If it's us running up the score, all the better.

How is the Steeler road record by the way,thought so :dang::dang:

Doesn't that make a loss to the Steelers at home all the more humiliating, then? You know, since we are so lowly and suck so bad and all?
