Uhh.. didn't we have like 430 yards of offense yesterday?

Colts probably have way more.

if it's late 3rd quarter and the 4th quarter, we must lead in 3 and outs. Arians doesn't seem to know how to close out a game. Starting around early 4th quarter, we seem to either go into the run up the middle, run up the middle, run up the middle....or we do pass, pass, pass....each of these completely expected by our opponents.

keep in mind we had 430 yards in almost 5 quarters of play, what im more concerned about is only putting up 16 points in almost 5 quarters of play against the hapless bills

My point was we don't do that the whole game.....we start doing so in the 4th quarter (becoming NFL's most predictable team)

Here's an interesting tidbit.Through 11 games the Steelers have scored a combined total of 16 points in 3rd quarter play. Averages out to 1.45 points every third quarter, or projected over a full game 5.8 points per game if we were equally inept through every other quarter to the point we are in the 3rd..

Make of it what you will.

Halftime adjustments happen with most teams other than the Steelers. The Steelers just keep doing the same crap they did in the first half and the other defense is keyed in on it and stuffs them. Bad coaching.

Our OC doesn't or is unable to adjust as a game is moving along, however, as bad as I think Arians is, penalties have cost us in the 3 and out department as well. That,my friends , should be the reponsibility of the HC. There seems to be a lack of discipline on this team and for that Tomlin must be held accountable.
