Looks worse to me. Ben would of made a few more plays at least.

Yes, but with no run game and a joke for a backup QB. :banging:

My non-confidence in Leftwhich stands. Time for new backups! So tired of Leftwhich/Batch. Batch can stay though.

our guys are NOT getting to Flacco. Surprising he hasn't completed much more of those passes.

Better hold then on 3rd and 7 - sorry tackling on the last conversion

im sure ben would not have fumbled after the reception and woulda tackled jones on the punt. :rolleyes:

Minus us scoring any points early, this is about what I expected this team to do tonight. Thanks for at least giving us Steeler fans a little something to cheer about even if it was in the first two minutes. At least you played with heart for a couple of minutes.

I think with all the scrutiny in how teams handle concussed players, we will start seeing a lot more 'concussions' as the teams start to err on the side of caution.

And that's a good thing for the safety of the players.

Man, what an ugly half by the offense - other than the 1st series where they got the TD, they've been putrid.

7-17 for 82 yards......

LVSteelersfan

10-7 . Could be a lot worse. I think there is something wrong with Byron's arm or shoulder.

TRH
11-18-2012, 09:57 PM
The offense just really sucks - not a single 3rd down conversion

it does. It also shows just how important Ben is to our whole scheme/team.

I don't understand why we're passing, passing, passing, and more passing. Leftwich isn't even close to being "on target".

eafratitpm3
11-18-2012, 09:58 PM
They should be used to this by now. I haven't seen anything different this game from any other. Penalties, Turnovers, inept offense, same old song just a different QBBoo Birds are out.

yep there is ....it's attached to a less than average QB

Heath needs to take over at QB cause lets face it Lefty SUCKS! Backup you shall remain Byron

LVSteelersfan
11-18-2012, 10:00 PM
Batch is not the answer. There is no answer. Batch throws a weak out route that is prime to be picked off. Especially if Reed is anywhere in the picture.

BlaZeQuietly
11-18-2012, 10:01 PM
we are only down by 3 this is still a very winnable game. We obviously need to start running to ball more, and differently. Leftwich has made some really bad throws, but you can thank Wallace for turning it over and handing them 3 points and you can thank special teams for allowing a punt return. Not all leftwiche's fault, has more rushing yards than mendenhall.

JWashington
11-18-2012, 10:01 PM
I think he's hurt more than he's letting on. Doesn't want to blow his shot, but he's blowing it anyway. Lets hope they get it together quickly

steelerchad
11-18-2012, 10:01 PM
Byron could clearly benefit from a running game against a team that can't stop the run. Yet, we've handed it to our backs 9 times while letting byron throw 17 times for 10 incompletions.
That's not going to get it done.
How bout something off tackle for a change.

steelfury02
11-18-2012, 10:03 PM
damn special teams - have to give Jones credit though - he is the best in the NFL right now. Doesn't help that Wallace gave them ONLY a field goal.

Really should be 7-0. The Ravens offense hasn't done anything spectacular.

Have to hope to figure something out on offense and hope defense can get a key turnover.

It is very frustrating seeing how average the Ravens actually are, without our QB. They are very beatable and we are just letting them get away with a little here, and a little there.

austinfrench76
11-18-2012, 10:04 PM
I would rather see them run the ball 3 times and punt then have him keep short arming receivers. At least there wont be an interception in our own territory. Damn! We cannot catch a break! He's hurt.

fortmemphis
11-18-2012, 10:05 PM
At this point I'd rather see Batch.

I asked that question just a bit earlier. I know it may seem desparate, but why n ot see if he can at least get the offense to get some 1st downs, maybe get in FG range.

Lefty may not be right. He seems to keep fiddling with his shoulder that he fell on as he amazingly just fell as he crossed the goal line in the 1st quarter.

eafratitpm3
11-18-2012, 10:05 PM
We need to get a 3 and out from our D after halftime and hope we can get a special team return or two FGs to win this game because I don't see this offense scoring any points.

steelfury02

This. We can't just keep hoping the defense will hold them to no TDs. They will probably get one eventually - and that'll take all the air out of the stadium.

Lady Steel
11-18-2012, 10:06 PM
Lefty needs to stop throwing the ball in the dirt. I agree with those who stated he is hurting. Hopefully, he will get fixed up in the locker room.

Poor Ben hanging out on the sidelines, but at least he's there. :thumbsup:

Lots of game left. I still believe! :tt:

You got to play with the shitty hand (Steeler Offense) that you are dealt, a win is a win, most of them this season will be ugly so get used to it.:tt04::tt04:This. We can't just keep hoping the defense will hold them to no TDs. They will probably get one eventually - and that'll take all the air out of the stadium.

Yep, the play calling has been strange. Throwing 17 times and running 9 times with a backup QB who has a release you can time with a sundial just doesnt seem smart.

Get with the RBs and tell them that they will do much better if they dont run straight into the backside of their own offensive linemen.

Run some off tackle and dont line up 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage. By the time the RB has made it to the line of scrimmage, 4 defenders have made it into the backfield.

But 3 yards here, 4 yards there puts you in 3rd and 3 and that can be managed.

White_Steel_Wolfe
11-18-2012, 10:10 PM

What proof? Leftwich is horrible. I don't see how it could get any worse. I'm all for the team trying out all options and not sticking to what isn't working.

RichardCullinanForever
11-18-2012, 10:12 PM
Yeah, trying to come behind from a multiple possession game isn't going to work out with our offense - we'll have to become even more one dimensional than we already are. We must stop them, and score before it's too late. Let's get our running game going. And a turnover would be nice...

Yep, we have to have this game. To go down 2 games in the division with Ben not coming back anytime soon and the Rat Turds coming up in 2 more weeks is not an option.

Its not normal, its unconventional, but if Lefty comes out and cant move the team, why not try Batch? Lefty is throwing the ball into the ground right in front of receivers like he cant get it all the way too them. Its not working so far.

steelfury02
11-18-2012, 10:15 PM
eventually the Ravens are going to take a huge risk/huge reward type play - I'm actually a little shocked at how passive they are being on offense

Let's have some faith that Haley and co have noticed a little something here and there. We do need them to figure it out now though. We can't keep hoping for special teams and D to do it for us. We need to get a TD on O - which is going to be a tall order from what I saw.

I just don't like what I'm seeing. It is an extremely tall order to win without QB and #1 WR, including one of the RBs. And - you can't win with 2 turnovers.

We really need the defense to bail us out in this one. Pray to the football gods for a huge turnover to go our way

NYC_Steeler

just too much pressure on the D. They have to be perfect and no D is. They have done a great job but no support from the O

That's exactly what the Steelers are minus wins, the difference between the Ravens and the Steelers is that the Ravens beat teams they are supposed too, unlike our team (Tennesee, Oakland)yea - it is frustrating as hell - the Ravens have proven to be an average team with a favorable schedule - if we are healthy - we win - but no excuses

Um, how is their schedule 'favorable' when it is nearly identical to ours? Only difference is they play last years Division winners (Patriots/Texans) and we play 2nd place teams (Jets/TItans)?

Based on last years record and games played so far this year, our schedule is easier.

This defense deserves a round of applause. I have no complaints about them this week, regardless of what happens from here on out

yes, they are like a baseball pitcher who has NO RUN SUPPORT. The pitcher feels like he has to make a perfect pitch everytime because if he lets even 1 run score, that may be enough to win the game.


The Defense has done just about all they can do except get to Flacco or get a turnover.

Somebody needs to tell Chris Rainey that this is not college. He cant just stop, dance, turnaround and run in a different direction. Newsflash Chris, the guys in the NFL are freakin fast. They may not be able to outrun you in a 40 yd dash, but they are quick. So just run vertically and get what you can get.

It is what you do when you know your QB cannot lead a drive over 15 yards

SoCalFan
11-18-2012, 10:31 PM
that is hoping we can keep stopping them - which is asking way too much. We need the other 11 guys, and special teams, to do their part if we want to win

Na, the D is plenty comfy!

I would pull Leftwich but if Tomlin does that he is going with Batch for Cleveland and Tomlin will not do that

pulling byron = batch pulling a hamstring getting off the bench.

they didn't have to go to the west coast twice, and - they've had one more home game than us up to this point - IMO, easier schedule

I agree that we are a better team and I am not in awe of them either, especially Flucko, I was just curious what yardstick you were using to measure their more 'favorable' schedule.

Thanks for the explanation.

That was an atrocious 3rd down call.
You're throwing a blooper up in the air, for one (that has a good chance of being batted away or intercepted). Two, its likely going out of bounds (which it did).
If you're going to pass it, throw it in the middle, get the 2 yards. Horrible call.
