I thought I heard the man take credit for the loss. He may have had a fucked up response to the 2pt conversion question but he accepted credit for the loss. Am I the only one who heard that?

Maybe I'm confused here. We lost by just a bit more than 2 points, making any 2 point conversions purely irrelevant to the outcome of this game. So, who gives a flying rat's ass if we didn't go for conversions that would have done jack shit for us?

What it shows is once again Tomlin can't maneg a game, HE MADE IT A 3 SCORE GAME WITH HIS STUPIDITY. WHEN WITH TWO 2 PT CONS WE COULD HAVE BEEN LEVEL.

What this shows is Tomlins maths 'aint good.

hey dipshit, if you win the game and advance to the playoffs you could always come up with a new 2pt play if you need to.
i mean its not like you are working on technique or conditioning or clock management or discipline during the week.

Yes, we play that same rule when we play Madden, too. Mandatory conversions, no punting on 4th downs.

Lets do some math:

After Wallace's second TD, the score is 34-16. Kicking an extra point makes it 34-17, which is still a 3 possession game. Keep in mind, Tomlin said the Steelers are "competitors." Getting a two-point conversion makes it 34-18, which makes it a two possession game. If the Steelers would have gotten a two-point conversion after the Brown TD, it would have been 34-26, which is only a one possession lead. At that point there was 58 seconds left in the game. The Steelers, being the "competitors" that they are, could've gone for an on-side kick. Had they recovered the on-side kick, they may have had time to get the TD and game-tying two-point conversion, thus making it 34-34.

Obviously, two-point conversions and on-side kicks are no certainty. But the Steelers are "competitors." Don't competitors do everything they can to win a game? Or do they concede and not try to narrow the point deficit, but still keep Ben in the game?

My favorite was when we needed to do an onside kick, and he still kicked it off. That was the best.
