Well, at least the D stopped them. Let's hope we don't run into the punter.

GMU Steeler

Ok D good recovery that drive. And Mundy no roughing the punter this time.

3rd and 2 and NOONE IN THE BACKFIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!1111

This crap has been going on for years now and I'm to the point where I'm starting to hope Tomlin gets fired along with Ariens. If Tomlin won't do his job and reign Ariens in, then he needs to go too. We've been winning all these years despite Ariens, not because of him. How the hell does Tomlin not realize this???

Chadmagic
10-16-2011, 03:25 PM
what happened to us since the first half?
We need to make some adjustments somewhere and fast.
Run with Redman and Dwyer. It worked well last week.
Just keep running. Its eating the clock and its getting us yardage

NYC_Steeler
10-16-2011, 03:25 PM
How is it possible to suck so bad so quickly? Mind-numbing.

NYC_Steeler

MJD getting yardage...

Chadmagic
10-16-2011, 03:27 PM
they keep running and its working. they even run on 3rd down.
We ALWAYS pass on 3rd

NYC_Steeler
10-16-2011, 03:28 PM
Troy gets MJD - stops him cold. Nice! D to the rescue.

BritishSteel
10-16-2011, 03:28 PM
I hope the D are on overtime, cos they've hardly been off the field this half -

great play from Troy

We always complain about no half-time adjustments. Well they adjusted and got worse.

DoctorCAD

Without Troy, we would be getting beat.

Huge play by Troy. Gotta make this a two possesion game.

NYC_Steeler
10-16-2011, 03:29 PM
Troy is just unreal - if he didn't get MJD< it would've been a 1st down. The guy is just awesome.

DoctorCAD

They adjusted about half-way through the second quarter.

It was wrong.

We don't need to run with Redman and Dwyer, Mendy was putting up a ton of yards for us until we decided to do nothing but throw deep.

I've said it time and time again, we need to run to setup the pass. We were doing that earlier and it was working well. Then Ariens decided he wanted to pass to setup the run, and now nothing is working.

Seriously, Ariens needs to go. He's going to ruin our season. In past years our D has bailed out our terrible offence, that's obviously not going to be the case this year. It's time the O held their own.

Do not blame the D on this one. Sense of urgency was needed by the offense. Coaches didn't provide the correct directive.

NYC_Steeler
10-16-2011, 03:39 PM
Going for it on 4th down - need 6 yards. This is is - let's see if the D has enough left in the tank to stop them.

Field Goal instead - made it. Great.

sharkweek
10-16-2011, 03:41 PM
so at what point do we start rooting against the steelers in hopes of getting Arians out of here

don't think I could ever bring myself to do that but if we keep finding success from season to season with him I don't see him going anywhere

I suppose I can always root for the defense but against the offense, although I don't see us winning many games with this seasons defense, although if younger players start stepping up (Woodley having a monster game and Hood and Heyward have been very promising thus far this season) who knows

Arians and his obsession with throwing deep may lose this game

You don't have too ?, the Defense has been generally "Stellar" for the last few years bud. :tt04:
But ya, ARIENS is a flipidity-flop,, he's a "waffler", and maybe, just maybe that has saved us a few times.

shaner82
10-16-2011, 03:44 PM
Does Bruce Ariens not realize that sometimes a 3 yard run is a good thing? It sets up the pass, especially the short routes.

GMU Steeler

1st down.

ZoneBlitzer

we are not playing to win...we are playing not to lose!!!

this team is incredibly frustrating at times especially on the offensive side of the ball - check that, for me, it is exclusively on the offense side of the ball - they play down to the opposition and they are squandering good defense and the talent that they have...

shaner82
10-16-2011, 03:47 PM
Just a suggestion, but maybe the odd run to the left might not be a bad idea. Running to the right 98% of the time is fairly predictable.

Steeler4life1972

They will blitz and Ben will throw incomplete to the sideline

I don't think I worded that correct, I'll always root for the defense, I guess what I was saying is do I root against the team (ie losing) in hopes of shaking things up for a better future, or do I keep rooting to win while rooting against the offense so that maybe something is done while still winning :P

BritishSteel

We won.

Game ball to the D - The 2nd half was the worst example of Offensive Play in good weather I can remember seeing for years - at least that 3-0 Dolphins game in 07 was played in a rainstorm in mud.

Chadmagic
10-16-2011, 04:00 PM
This game is a W.
But it was ugly and should never have been this close. Penalties are killing us on both sides of the ball. This is the 2nd week in a row, where a penalty kept the other team on the field and led to a TD.

I am not sure what is going on with our Offense. They use the run to get a lead, then think they can switch the game. Not sure why you want to switch the plan from what gets you the lead to what costs you the game. But we do it every week. Needs to be fixed or we will get embarrassed against the Pats and Ravens again.

Defense did great. They were on the field for over 8min on that 80TD drive. I am sure they were winded. And still they held them to 13pts. Great Job D!

Exactly, and how really stooopid is Ariens ?
well, smash-mouth football is physically hard and tiring on both "O" and opposing "D"..., and since we had a comfortable lead the 1st-half, predictably Ariens', decided to relax and go-to-the-AIR. :)
Ummmmm, and of course, any opposing high-school football team would have figured that out. -Lol
Hence why we almost FAILED. !
Now, where was TOMLIN !!!, to force any re-adjusments onto Ariens/Ben ??? -mix it up again. , short-jab routes mixed with runs, ...., ...
and this was the REAL problem here. Instead, they "fallback" on our "D", yet again, to save the day.

it's the same crap week-in, and week out.
But hey, I'm just a fumbling Observer.
