take away the holding call and the first two runs were going to produce a 3rd and about 3. Not a bad down and distance for Ben to make a short pass.

They are going to find the balance. Just hope the D can keep Peyton out of the endzone until they do.

well we did the "throw it all over the field" last year and the line couldnt keep the D off of Ben a lot of the time. Some of the time Ben brought it on himself, but nevertheless, we cant just throw throw throw throw.

Sure, they are running too much right now, but give them a min to get a good mix. Its just the first qtr of the first reg season game.

Anyone remember the 2010 Patriots game? Lets NOT have a repeat of that......

yep, dink and dunk and dink and dunk underneath underneath and TD with Brady never holding ball more than a couple secs.

Steelers are going to have to score and keep Peyton off the field as much as possible. The last drive showed that he has gotten comfortable.

But it seems that some on here just want to pass pass pass pass like Arians used to do. There has to be a mix, some sort of balance. Maybe no 50/50, It is the 2000s.

We have been there and done the throw it all over the place thing last year and we got put out in the first round.

Mixing up the plays, taking time off the clock and keeping Peyton sitting on the bench is how we can beat Denver.

Looked better once they did the usual, 'change of pace', 'no huddle/check deep/no short crap near the end of the half' routine that Arians was accustomed to.

I don't understand why they don't run that kind of O all the time, but...

Still, you're right. Very solid first half.

One more drive like that will be a good start.

I am afraid of that as well. That is why ball control and keeping the MASTER on the bench is key. The MASTER cant score if he isnt on the field.

A mixture of running and passing taking time off the clock is what is needed in the second half.

steelerchad
09-09-2012, 10:05 PM
I know it worked out with a TD, but why did we spike the ball with :38 and a timeout making it 2nd and goal. Not only did we lose a down and only got 2 shots at the endzone. I thought we could have run a pass, if incomplete, still 25 seconds left. Then run, call your timeout if not in. Then throw on 3rd.

We ended up getting the score, but I thought we rushed that spike and didn't need to.

Sorry about the oversight my man.:drink:

its cool, we are all part of Steeler Nation and just want to win. I admit, Haley went a little too far with all the runs and Ben had to bail him out at the end of the half, but I am just skeptical of going back to the Arians way of doing things.

It puts too much pressure on the line to pass block and then when they cant, it almost gets Ben killed back there.

There is a balance--mix somewhere out there and hopefully Ben and Todd will find it and they can have a couple 12 play, 10 min drives and control this game in the 2nd half.
