It was horrible play calling.

In all fairness, if we had a running back who actually knew how to run the play calling would have looked a lot better.

Running to the right all game with very little adjusting at half time. Not good play calling in my book.

No adjustment, poor play selection, too many slow-developing plays.

It's like Arians has never woken up to how terrible our O-line is. Oh, and Mike Wallace got seven targets--you think maybe throwing him the occasional slant might be more productive than running it up the gut for no gain the fiftieth time?

at least he did not call an reverse end around when we had the ball at our own 15. that's some progress.

those short passes for zero or 2 yard gains are awful. I can see if the DBs are playing back then maybe throw them but when the guy is right on you and your receivers are bunched together it's worthless.

Slant? What the hell is that? Please elaborate...

We do have one who can run; he just never sees the field.

redman didnt do much better than mendenhall. i don't know any RB other than the legendary barry sanders who could run without any help from the offensive line

I was particularly impressed with all of those 1 yard gains up the gut on first down. I thought it was hilarious when Dungy [ who I respect] said the Steelers still had to establish the run. The Steelers running game really hasnt been much to talk about for a few years. I know that so many critcise Mendenhall for dancing around to much, but bottom line there usually is not anywhere for him to go. Where has the old fashioned pitch out disappeared to? Are defenses considered to fast now days for it to be effective? Ben over the years has proven to be good rolling out, why dont we see some of that? I know that there is much about the intricasies of football I may not know, but even with this offensive line, I think a good o/c would find ways to make it work with all of the talent available.
