4. Heinz Field is windy and really hard to kick in...
You add all that up and it was just an insanely bad call. That is exactly what I meant... if we can figure that out what are we paying Tomlin 4+ million a year for.
You are right though, the pass play on 3rd and 1 on the 5 was just flat out a horrible call.
As long as we have Mendenhall & Redman, they have no business throwing when within 5 yards of the endzone. Always has me screaming at the TV when they do that.
Then they run when they have 90+ yards to the endzone, and 3rd & 5 or more.
