What a bunch of garbage. I now they might have a couple of plays specifically designed for the two point conversion but you can still run any short yardage pass or running play in the playbook.

So even if you have a chance to narrow the opponent's lead to one possession, you shouldn't do it because you have to accept "you got your ass kicked?"

I guess Ryan Clark shouldn't have punched the ball out of Ray Rice's hand in the Divisional round a few years ago when it was 21-7 Ravens since the Steelers were "getting their asses kicked."

Who cares about that? I want to hear if they own it or not? That's the most important thing - do they, as men, own it? It means so much to me to hear that.

Anyways, he's never said it was because he thought the game was over. He's basically saying that he didn't want to show his two point conversion plays in a game where it might not make a difference. He wanted to save them for a better opportunity. All he is doing by saying that is saving face because we could have used any play in the playbook to at least make an effort for the 2 and saved the "A+" plays for another time later in the season.
So what counts as a "better opportunity?" If the Steelers and Ravens both finish 10-6, but Baltimore gets the division based off tie-breakers and the Steelers have to go to New England or Denver in the first round, will we look back and say "that might have been an opportunity to run some 2 pt-conversion plays?"

Exactly. It's a bs excuse. Tomlin has to come up with some excuse as to why he f'd up though. Twice in the game he went for the extra point when he should have been going for 2.

The failed 4th and a foot got him skeered.

Seahawks know what to do at home, its 51-0.

That excuse should scare everyone. Either he is not holding himself accountable or he doesn't understand he should have went for two. Either way, bad news.

Remember Tomlins usual responses...

1.) well the Standard is the Standard
2.) yeah we own that
3.) we will have to get back to basics
Blah blah blah.

That's all Tomlin has anymore...stupid played out excuses. I used to like him but this season I would be very tempted to fire him as well as the rest of the coaching staff. Wallace is first on my list of players to not just fire but push off the top building of Heinz field stadium.

Just my 2 cents.
