"Roethlisberger said he audibled to a pass to Wallace but nobody on the line knew it"

THIS is not acceptable. This is the type of crap that makes me scratch my head. Cmon - do we need to email a list of things they have to know pat before game day?

That was not a run, Mendy knew the handoff was a fake play action. So. then, should have the line. That line seems too frantically worried about the opposition instead of the intangibles of the play call. Serious focus on the calls will go a long way to help the line. Missed gaps, missed assignments, etc. should go away over time and the line should start to gel. It just sucks that turn over at the line will make this take longer.

At the very least, he could have stopped the progress of the colts defender, instead he stood there with his hands on his hips, watching ben get hit and doing NOTHING until the defender has a good 3 seconds to scoop the ball and start running with it.

what a worthless pile of shit.

the FO is just doing the politically correct thing by not throwing scott under the bus. however they're probably thinking what everyone else is, just we have nobody to replace him.
See, this is when things start to get out of hand.

First of all...what the **** is wrong with you? What kind of person are you? Jonathan Scott is a "worthless pile of shit" because he happens to play poorly for the team that you like the most? Get a god damn sense of perspective. This is the point at which things go too far. The quality of an individual has nothing to do with how well he performs athletically, something that a lot of people seem to forget. Whether you meant it or it was hyperbole or whatever, to even go in that direction is really sad. Did he beat his wife or baby? Did he kill a dog? Did he rob somebody? Come on, get real. This is why I joked a couple weeks ago that I wish Bruce Arians would get cancer. Fans get so worked up that they actually build up a dislike, or even hatred, of otherwise good people simply because they don't live up to the expectations of fans in performing their jobs in what is literally a game.

Also, this has nothing to do with the front office or being politically correct. What kind of absurd conspiracy theory is this? Besides, there's plenty of evidence to support the claim that Roethlisberger, unbeknownst to 9 other players running the play, was ad-libbing and not doing what he was supposed to do. Both Kemo and Miller take off downfield. Had he actually gone deep to Wallace, they would have had ineligible men downfield. Also, it's pretty obvious that Scott deliberately turns a short corner as he was expecting a short drop. He can't see Ben stepping back 5 of more steps...and the problem with that is that Freeney could, making it easy for him to just speed past Scott.

Nobody here is defending Scott as a quality left tackle or a long-term solution of any sort. But some of the piling on is seriously excessive, and angling toward personal insults and attacks is way too far.

Not only that, but take a peak at where Mendy is when Freeney gets past Scott. They can call it an "option" if they want, but that was as clear a running play as I've ever seen. Would've been at least 5-10 yard gain. Very stupid.

I don't think anyone is arguing for Scott. He's not good. Period. But Freeney makes lots of people look no good. And the only play that Freeney had that meant anything - the sack and fumble - was not Scott's fault. That's what we're saying.

it does kinda help to know that ben has been "going rogue". couple that with accusations of him being a diva and drama queen and i guess that makes him the sarah palin of the nfl.

the only difference is sarah palin was accused of raping an entire state.

(i kill me)

You apparently don't know when someone is being facetious. He obviously did not literally mean he's a "pile of shit." He meant to that he sucks as a LT and should not be starting at LT. And your backlash here was personal than his was imo.

i get it that people will use the internetz message boards to vent their anger and sadness after their favorite teams loss, but those who are calling scott the worst lineman ever, obviously have short term memory loss and have forgotten sean mahan.

That's quite obviously not the point.
