That line is tired, bud. You need to drop it. Just because people point out the obvious - namely that the coaching staff is smarter than you - it doesn't mean we think they're infallible. I have dirty socks that know more about football than you; it doesn't make them infallible, and I don't ask them for advice about finances or dating... or even about football.

STFU assclown. youre a proven football imbecile who adds nothing to this conversation or the board in general.

plus you think that mental midget, thad gibson, is a world beater. you and him relate on so many levels.

participation charts and personell groupings are WAY too deep for you.

you might wanna move on to a captain obvious conversation that is more in your league like-

"the defense is old"
"hines ward is old"
"dan rooney is old"
"the dust in my grandmas drawers is old"
"danrooney's posts are old [and tired]"
"roger goodell sux"

mendenhall only had 12 rushing attempts (all in the 1st half) add in redmans 3 (also in the 1st half) and the steelers had 15 rushing attempts by a RB vs 42 passes.

in the meantime the ravens had 31 rush vs 29 pass.

typical bruce arians "throw 45 times in a hurricaine" offense.

take away rashard getting mugged in the backfield and he is averaging more than 4 yds pc. take away rice gashing the steelers d on the 1st play of the game and he is averaging less.

of course i dont advocate running the ball in the last minutes of a game when we are down by 4 scores and it is way out of hand.

but no rushing attempts in the entire 2nd half?

completely taking one of our major offensive weapons out of the game because of a fumble???

hell, big ben had a fumble and 3 interceptions, and charlie batch didnt even see the field when the game was well out of hand.

i dont blame the steelers coaches for the players lack of execution, but i do blame them for not playing to the players strengths.

winning or losing, the steelers gameplan was to run rashard 10-15 times, and then let ben air it out.

the lack of adjustments is what is so frustrating.

their plan was to go with whatever worked so well vs PHI & ATL in preseason scrub ball. (when other teams dont gameplan for that weeks opponent as well)

We were running the ball so well. I never thought we'd be able to run the ball that effectively against the Ravens D. Then what does Arians do? He abandons it and spreads it out without a running back in the backfield to protect Ben. Arians needs to go!

its just like him abandoning the run in last years superbowl when it was his hybrid wannabe 270 lb TE fullback who whiffed on a block, allowing mendenhall to so graciously fumbnle.
PREACH!
