Default Trick Play

Does anyone else think that it was a bad time to pull out a trick play (finally) in the Carolina game? I think it would have been better utilized against Baltimore or Cincy. I understand that maybe they wanted to see if it would work against a team we already had the lead against, but my big fear is now the Ravens and Bengals may be preparing for more plays like that. It was a good throw by Ced, but I just feel it was the wrong time to bring it out. Don't get me wrong, I loved the trick plays last year and was happy to see it again! Any other opinions?

I think it was an OK time. Your right, maybe against Baltimore would have been better, but what if it doesn't work then? I think the ideal time to pull it out would have been against the Browns the second time we played them.

First you need game time experience with the play. Cowher always pulls them out at unexpected times. One thing about our trick plays, we seem to use them more than anybody else, and we our very successful. So I believe this is just the first of many

I see some logic in pulling out this play right before the Ravens game. Now the Ratbirds have to sit back and think "are they gonna pull it out of their hat"?....If we can put that doubt in their minds and make them hesitate for a split second..it gives us an advantage

I totally agree L-L-T now they have something else to think about, and keep the defense on their heels instead of pinning their ears back and coming all out at Big Ben.

Right, now we can hand off to Wilson, have him throw, run, hand if off, or even back to Ben for a flea flicker. Options

Whiz probably saw the safety cheating from the box upstairs.....I don't think the raven D will be that stupid though!

Good...let the safety play back and we will run Willie...or hit a WR short middle on a slant...if the safety cheats and it gives us that option...and GURANTEED...if the play works he will NOT cheat again

Thanks all, you all made me feel better about the play being used when it was. Here's to a big win over the Ravens on Sunday, will be there at Heinz Field to watch the game, first one this season!
