2 turnovers. Nothing to show for either. Ouch.

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 03:33 PM
Well, this o-line is really pathetic. I guess that's what this team and last year's team has in common. That, and Arians's playbook.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:33 PM
At least our ST punt return coverage has been good the 2nd half.. It's just too bad that we're punting enough for me to notice.

This team is getting to be a joke on offense. No surprise at all. Run it up the gut on first down. Run a crap play on second down. Get sacked on third down.

12-23-2012, 03:33 PM
once again D screws up by not scoring on the TO

fortmemphis
12-23-2012, 03:34 PM
if other teams can take the snap and throw it within 2 or 3 secs and get 5 yards a catch, why cant we? Haley and Ben need to realize that these slow developing plays are A. going to kill Ben and B. continue to make the Steelers go backwards.

Can't count on the O. D is going to have to score. Cause getting turnovers and sack just isn't enough. They have to get td's too

The only way we win this game is if the defense scores on a turnover, because this is a totally inept offense.

Ben is still using Arian's plays - I know he admitted to it once - but I really wonder if he really is falling back on some of Arian's "classics" more than we think. The plays and patterns are suspiciously similar.

it would be nearly the same as a punt - although we wouldn't have to worry about a stupid penalty or a fumble by one of the Fumblers

Wow...what a flipping great play!!! That was amazing!! Gotta tell ya...the defense is playing some gutsy football. Too bad the offense is so uninterested in winning.

Ricco Suavez
12-23-2012, 03:40 PM
This IS Haleys offense. Run ineffectively and expect Ben to bail you out on third down all day. He did good early but it has caught up to him. Quit freaking running on first down so much.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:40 PM
We should be up by at least 7 to 14 points, given the number of turnovers.

SteeleReign

Not blaming Arians. Blaming whomever is responsible for allowing Haley to run Arians offense.

ZoneBlitzer

These defensive players are my heroes today. The only bright spot for next year is this defense. The O is beyond help. Haley is shit and Ben can't make the quick read.

SteelersCanada

He didn't touch out of bounds - he was in the air.

fortmemphis

Okay Ben/Haley---ONE freaking drive. Come on, figure something out. Get the ball out of Ben's hands faster. Come up with something.

You have a sieve for an offensive line for protections. It has to be quick hitters, out patterns, quick curls, and Heath. But dont let Ben keep holding on to the ball.

I just don't want to go into overtime. With the new rules in place, for whatever reason, we just can't seem to win. (And here, I always thought we'd benefit from that change lol)

It's 10-10...there's time for the Steelers to put something together, maybe just enough to put the game away

NYC_Steeler

at least the Bengals held - penalty - to the 10. Now if ony the D can recover a fumble or get an interception and return it for a TD. The offense sucks and can't score.

fortmemphis
12-23-2012, 03:49 PM
this is just bad. The offense is just bad. No offensive line. No running game. Painful to watch.

If CIN is so good, then why are they just 8-6 and lost at home last week to the Cowgirls?

This has to be the most vanilla bland, uncreative offensive ever dreamed up. RBs lining up 12 yrds behind the line. No blocking. Ben about to get hurt. It really hurts to watch this.

The defense has played its heart out.

Kanata-Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:49 PM
we actually need the "D" to intercept AND grab a TD for our "Offense".

Yeah. I'm pretty excited about his future.

NICE! NOw we get GREAT field position for once

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
If our Offense doesn't lay an egg here, we can put this away RIGHT NOW on THIS DRIVE

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
incomplete - great start so far

Kanata-Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM

Cinci showing they still make bad decisions...and we come back with that ???????

GMU Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
Not that I'm complaining but what was Lewis thinking?

TRH
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
i'd be careful about running the ball up the middle too much here

stupid bubble screens. Never worked for us yet. Why keep doing it?

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
Mendy for the first!

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
Mendy gets to the 42 - 1st down.

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
Lookie there...run it to the edge and guess what?

LVSteelersfan
12-23-2012, 03:57 PM
Mendy outside. Finally.

OX1947
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
Wow, we really needed that.

Jahodac
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
One word: Bounce out

lol

TRH
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
see what happens when we don't run up the middle ALL the time??????????????

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
Mendy gets 4 - escaped a loss

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
Oh man...I thought Mendy was gonna lose the ball there.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
I actually kind of like that they're running a bit here...now's a good time to manage the clock.

LVSteelersfan
12-23-2012, 03:58 PM
Simms. STFU.

SteelersCanada
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
Mendenhall up the middle, gets stopped, bounces it outside. That is why he needs to be our number one back again.

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
lost a yard - Heath is down

fate0521
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
heath down not good

LVSteelersfan
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
Heath down. CRAP.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
Heath.....noooooooooooo

DoctorCAD
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
Boy, they are going to run into the middle of the line until the cows come home...

Kanata-Steeler
12-23-2012, 03:59 PM
NOOOOO, not Miller

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
well, this is the gme - 3rd down and 7 - looks like Heath is gonna be out

ohio blackngold
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
Ben runs back to Mendy ,who is just standing there, to hand hm the ball....doesn't make much sense to me

Fire Arians
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
chicken shit play call now makes it an obvious passing down

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
Okay, I liked the run game here - but not three runs in a row. Come on. Hope Heath's okay.

OX1947
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
First down here, and they put the strangle hold the Bengals.

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
DeC got blown up again. But, then again, that's why we need to stop running inside. Seriously, if Haley is calling these runs he's an absolute moron.

fortmemphis
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
Jesus, CIN is putting 8-9 men in the box and bringing up DBs to stop the run. When we take the snap, the CIN defenders are already just about in the backfield.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:00 PM
Keisel helping Heath off the field was touching, actually

fate0521
12-23-2012, 04:01 PM
3rd and 7, time to dial up another sack

LVSteelersfan
12-23-2012, 04:01 PM
Roll Ben out on this third down. PLEASE. No sitting duck play.

Fire Arians
12-23-2012, 04:01 PM
those are the situations when play action would burn the defense

VegasStlrFan
12-23-2012, 04:01 PM
Ben runs back to Mendy ,who is just standing there, to hand hm the ball....doesn't make much sense to me

Bad design or execution whtever it is they suck ass

Kanata-Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:02 PM
Captain Keisel helping Heath off the field -nice Brett.

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:02 PM
Gotta get the conversion here...for Heath's sake! If for no other reason, do it for Heath!

SoCalFan
12-23-2012, 04:02 PM
That last run was just dumb!

Sleeper/54
12-23-2012, 04:02 PM
okay everybody .... positive thoughts for Sweet Cheeks !!!!

rgj
12-23-2012, 04:02 PM
Great. Now Miller is hurt.....there goes the Steeler offense.:banging:

steelersfan77
12-23-2012, 04:03 PM
We're going to get a.first.down right here

rgj
12-23-2012, 04:03 PM
SACK.

DoctorCAD
12-23-2012, 04:03 PM
That last run was just dumb!

As were the 10,000 before it.

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:03 PM
Ben gets 3 yards - now what?

fortmemphis
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
no matter what happens, remember the defense didn't lose us this game

it certainly did NOT, You are spot on.

Haley and Ben and whatever this is they are doing when PIT has the football ( I hesitate to call it an actual offense) is what has killed it for us

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
Pick up of 6...maybe its Suisham's chance for redemption?

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
No! Please don't kick the FG!!!! Oakland all over again.

Jahodac
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
Would feel better with a punt...

fate0521
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
is it just me or did ben look scared to fully commit to running for it there

TRH
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
i'd punt it...

VegasStlrFan
12-23-2012, 04:04 PM
pathetic .... now were gonna try it????

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Missed it - dammit. So much for that. Oh well.

GMU Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Punt it.

SteelShadow
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Damn

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Suisham's career long is 52 --- Heinz field's longest FG is 52. What was Tomlin thinking?

Jahodac
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Very dumb kick

SteelersCanada
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Oh my god. I like the call, but Shaun doesn't have the leg. Fuck.

lopanchein
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
our head coach is an idiot

ohio blackngold
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
still alot of time left ...D really needs to step it up

ZoneBlitzer
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
And that's the game.

eafratitpm3
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Does this team have a Head Coach.................................WTF

SteeleReign
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
Well...there ya go again Coach Moron...er Tomlin. WTF are you thinking?!!!!!!

fortmemphis
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
this will not end well for us.

TRH
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
another gamble lost. I didn't like it to begin with. You HAVE to punt it in that situation.

fate0521
12-23-2012, 04:05 PM
suisham's range is like exactly 52, maybe tomlin will figure it out

rgj
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
Tomlin HAD to try it....he knew his offense sure as hell wasn't going to score.

Kanata-Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
No! Please don't kick the FG!!!! Oakland all over again.

It's either that or trust our "O" to get the 1st. I guess that says a lot too.

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
didn't get the 1st down dammit

GMU Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
What were you thinking Tomlin? He doesn't have a big leg and Heinz isn't exactly the easiest place to kick either.

DoctorCAD
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
Every single coach should be dumped into the nearest river...

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
Didn't Tomlin see what JUST happened when the Bengals missed on a long FG? Or maybe, I dunno - the last time he sent Suisham out for a disasterous 53 yarder?

TRH
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
here we go with the outside passes............................

Stick a fork in us. We're done.

ohio blackngold
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
those 8-10 yd outs are gonna give the bengals FG range

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:06 PM
And that's the game.

I wouldn't say that yet - our D could hold them

Ricco Suavez
12-23-2012, 04:07 PM
I would of rather seen them go for it, instead of trying FG. Punt was the best scenario.

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:07 PM
incomplete - yes!!

SteelersCanada
12-23-2012, 04:07 PM
We're getting the ball back. Let's go, Ben. SB 43 all over again.

OX1947
12-23-2012, 04:07 PM
This is going OT.

Ricco Suavez
12-23-2012, 04:08 PM
I wouldn't say that yet - our D could hold them

D is playing great, its just you shortened the field a lot.

eafratitpm3
12-23-2012, 04:08 PM
How can 100,000 fans no not to kick the FG and 1 DA Head Coach can't see it, truly a CMON MAN WINNER!!!

AndyWitmyer
12-23-2012, 04:08 PM
Okay, so the Offense gets one more chance here to prove Ben can still be clutch.

GMU Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:08 PM
Wowie.

NYC_Steeler
12-23-2012, 04:08 PM
Brown actually catches it this time -at the 11. Oh boy, here we go.
