Can someone, for the life of me explain why we ran a empty backfield in the 2nd half? The first half we at least had the phony FB/TE Johnson in to help block. Why would you place a hobbled QB in the shotgun with no help? If your gonna piss away a game plan at the very least put Dixon back there to be left in the open.
The post about being out coached is right on. Tomlin, like Arians is a product of talent around him.

Re: Empty backfield???
We wanted to Ben to move around more. lol... Try to create some plays. Even when we had someone back there they wouldnt block.
Mendy was there on the one play where Ben tossed the int late, he was at the bottom of screen standing there. Ben had 12 seconds to pass. Mendy just had to circle in front and bam he wouldve had 20.
Lots of poor choices by everyone. Pretty much lost any home field games, and not we will rest the key guys for 2 weeks and tank the last 2 games and limp into the playoffs.
Tomlin the bus driver will come out and say they have a plug and play team, its the standard, we ares 74 players deep if we want to be. Great job Mike. He can't stand up and say they need to play better and make better decisions. He made the choices that resulte din the outcome
Essex in, that blew up
Ben, that blew up: although I still want Ben in, lol. Im just saying he made the call. If your not going to protect Ben, there is no point in playing him.
Redman still not getting time, yet producing
Ward? Where the check was he in the game, or did he stay in Pittsburgh?
Ben should ask Santa for a Fing Oline under his tree. All th emoney we pay these clowns to not block and lay down is unreal. Now we have more of that money sitting on the bench.
Great choices Mike make sure you back up th ebus on your players again this week, stay consistant. That is key.
