When did that go on the books? Pretty sure I remember seeing it done in years past.

If it came down to it, I would have kicked the FG on 3rd to see what Suisham puts up. if he makes it, great. If not, then we think over whether we punt or try again
WOW?

I think a little bit of "panic" is justified at this point.
Sure, mathematically we're very much alive. It's way too early to concede.
However, when you look at the quality and consistency of play and coaching, doubt has to creep in.

The way we've lost. The inability to win on the road. Sure it's early, but those telltale signs become a habit. The early season losses to shit teams says a lot.

Are the players going to all suddenly play better......especially the D-line?
Is Ike going to overcome his horrific meltdown in progress?
The scheme and predictability on D is not going to change.
Ben's playing very well (vs. Tenn. so-so) so far.
The offense has to become more explosive.
Our O-line (better than I expected, doesn't say much though) has to play even better which can be hard to do with this group,


Hey, it can happen, they could put it all together for one more run.
But I don't see it happening with this group. They're hurt, they're old, and their skills are fading. The younger guys haven't contributed enough. Our draft hasn't produced enough starters in waiting.

I'll support them to the end like most of us but right now they are what they are, a 2-3 team that has some serious problems.

A few posts later, it appears that you figured out (where you had seen it before).

Against CLEV, about a decade ago, the Steelers tried on 3rd down, and it was blocked... and, technically, it never crossed the LOS, and thus, in a weird rules loophole,PITT was allowed to attemept the FG again.

CLEV was livid.
