The steelers didnt make any adjusments to help our linemen out and keep them off Ben in the 2nd half... Is that Not what halftime is for? The Eagles killed us continuously the whole game.. and it just seems like we never did anything to correct it and get Ben some help.. I blame the coaches for this!!!
I am just really irritated with Tomlin and Co. right now. I just wonder what Mr. Rooney is thinking in the back of his mind of him as well..
C'mon Elvis - don't you feel you are being just a tad unfair here to Tomlin? The guy took Cowher's 8-8 team from 2006 and turned them back into AFCN champs last season with the help of his coaches and coordinators, which includes Bruce Arians. We are only going into Game #4 in a 16 game season and have played poorly overall in ONE of those games. Sure I put a LOT of blame for last Sunday's gagfest on the OL, but I also give credit where credit is due - Andy Reid and Jim Johnson called an excellent game plan and the Eagles players did exactly what was expected of them.
If we see another couple of performances by our O and line like the Eagles' game, then we can start to question the coaches' strategies but after one loss? I think that is terribly premature and extremely unfair.
