My last comment on that play. I'm in upstate NY and have endured 2 days of what a "boneheaded play" that was, and I agree, by the Jets , Bills, Pats, and Giants fans in this office, not to mention how it's been ripped on the sports radio and TV. It wasn't a very smart play to call, especially since we now know it was designed to pick up 3 or 4 yards when we needed more. It didn't show any confidence in Ben and a team that was lighting up the Jags, and it will go down in infamy. "Hey, 3rd and 6, and you're in a playoff game, and everything is on the line, run your QB on a QB sweep like the Steelers did, BWAHAHAHA!".

If we didn't have those 3 turnovers in the first half we wouldn't be having this conversation. I had flashbacks of Neil O'Donnel throwing the game away. You can't give a team like Jacksonville pick sixes and turn the ball over when you're trying to gain momentum and expect things to go your way in the end.

There were several factors, including those you mention above, which had an impact on the Steelers losing that game. If the D holds and doesn't allow a QB, who isn't known as terribly mobile, to scamper for 32 yards to get the Jags into FG range, we probably aren't having this conversation either. If our pathetic ST's doesn't allow Jones Drew to run back a kickoff for 96 yards, the Jags score that shortly followed most likely doesn't happen. So many ifs but the bottom line is - our season is over, the Jags are moving on. Period.

Seriously, game on the line and we run a QB sweep off tackle and that tackle happens to be a 3rd string guy... How can you be confident about that? And watch that play over and you will see that Mr Essex makes contact with absolutely NOBODY! He just turns around to watch Ben get hammered for a small gain.

I also didn't like the play call BEFORE that play. Davenport off tackle and he loses 2 yards... yep that same 3rd string tackle.
Arians is now admitting that he made a bad call:

Quote:
The Steelers might have won had they converted a third-and-six from their 26-yard line with 2:56 remaining.

A run around left end by Roethlisberger gained only 1 yard, and the Steelers punted.

"I should have let him throw it again, probably, instead of running it," Arians said.
Gee, Bruce, do you think?

I`m a bit confused as to who has the final say during a game.
I`m an NFL newby so please bear with me.....I`m aware you have an offense coach,a defense coach and a special team coach(?) but does not Tomlin have the final say during any phase of a game?
