Yeah...that's how I felt too. I know many wanted the Steelers to run, and like I've said...normally I would agree. Not against the Ravens though. Even if it did chew up some clock time, I feel they would have been lucky to get one first down, and I think it would have given the Ravens better field position and still plenty of time. Most likely, they still would have had a time out as well, and possibly the two minute warning. So I honestly think passing was the right thing to do here. They had a 4 point lead, not a 14 point lead.

I wanted them to play to win the game...get some more points! Unfortunately, those two drops negated that (as did the bizarre FG situation).
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!

No delay of game, and fewer time to work with for the Ravens, Instead, we blew that with one of the dumbest play calls I have ever seen with the game on the line.

Nothing will ever top Arians calling a draw play in our end zone however.

I for the life of me, cannot fathom how the heck that guy still has a job here.
I was wondering why there wasnt any run plays called aslo. We all know run plays are a good time waster, but then again it seems like we have gotten away from that type of football.

Might as well dress em in skirts!

Gosh, you know.... I think you are right. What should I have for dinner since you seem to be so in tune with my thought process?
