steelers got no real weapons and not going to even comment on the o-line.

The only REASON the weapons are not making their plays is because of our Damn Linemen.

I've seen my school's O-Line do better this crock load of shit job.

This feels like one of those times.

I think I realize how Ravens fans felt to have an atrocious offense wasting a good defense.

The Special Teams and Defense are stepping it up, but the Offense is awful. Looks like the Offense is going to be scaled back further.

HometownGal

how is that hate? im just saying it seems like when we need a play and the other team does a screen, it works more than it should

Just responding about the lack of intelligence of the post. If you were really watching the game, you would have noticed that the screen play in question was the first successful screen the Ravens had executed at the time.

He isn't gunshy, XT - he knows damned well his OL sucks but he is too much a pro to come out and say it. He knows he has a second or two to get rid of that ball or he is going to get creamed. I also think his hand may be bothering him more than he is letting on.

Ben is a part of the problem as well. He's gunshy and indecisive. We're only down by three, but this is ridiculous.

to who? we have no beast at wide receiver.

You realize we had Mendenhall on blitz pick up on a 4-man rush, meaning we have 7 Ravens working coverage against 4 targets. It's hard to pass when you have almost twice the secondary as receivers.

That's all on the OL, no reason a 4-man rush should beat 5 guys + hb.

I am sick of people who think Arians plays 11 positions on the field.

I'm not saying that at all. But when the receivers aren't even turned around when Ben is getting hit, I believe the play calling has to change, at least somewhat. I'm not calling for him to be fired, but we need some short passes to take away the pressure. I don't think that's too big of a task. New England did that to us with great success. Why can't we do it?

As long as we hold them to no more than a fg here, its less than a touchdown game, with us getting the ball first. This game is far from over, and we can play much better.

RunWillieRun
09-29-2008, 09:08 PM
The problem is not just ben or the oline or the recievers....Ben is not playing well, the Oline has become no existent after the first drive, and the receivers are not getting open.

Put that altogether and you get one bad offense.

I don't think so. We get the ball first, and we have the talent to score much more than 10 points in a half.

with no real o-line, we have no beast at wide out to move reed. ben is going to hold the ball a lot.

I think it might be time to break out the no-huddle spread with Ben in the shotgun, and just dink and dunk down the field, just to get him in a rhythm and get him some confidence, because it's clear that he has none. Right now he looks completely lost back there.

Defense has played well, but they look tired from being on the field almost the entire half.

This just hasn't been a fun game to watch at all.

All 3 of Baltimore's scoring drives started inside Steeler territory. That is unacceptable. We must do better to control the field position. Our best field position was squandered with an int. I don't think Ben is trusting what he's seeing, he should have just stepped into that pass and chucked it toward the endzone.

Also, we must do better on first down. We have attempted a run on every 1st down except for the 2nd to last series. I'm not sure why we feel we must run on 1st down.

Our offense seriously has to be ranked at the bottom all due to the line.

Even last year even with this O-Line, Ben put up big numbers. Our O was still fairly potent last year. Once again, the Offense comes out like gangbangers and just die afterwards. It's the offense as a whole. The Line, Ben, the recievers, the coordinators, everything.

No touchdowns since the Cleveland game. This is not good.

Anyway, we'll see in the second half.

Yeah, I was screaming at the screen for us to pound the rock. Obviously Mendy's not going to get 5-6 yards every time, but it looked like he was having pretty decent success out there. What's more, he didn't fumble, and looked pretty tough.

Run the ball. Pound the ball. Then Ben needs to pick up the pace. He looks slow.

Regarding the offensive line, I have nothing to say to them.

It's only halftime, and it's still a close game at 13-3. We throw a couple touchdowns and this game's ours. I have no idea what's up Big Ben's craw, but he needs to yank it out.
