The STs suck out loud, no argument here. But they were even worse last year.

And little else

If we are not going to use Reid, cut him and bring back Chidi! - that will solve all ST problems

I do think Rossum fumbled on a punt return today-didn't he?

Our STs suck something awful, we arn't going anywhere with that type of play

Hopefully though Tomlin will chew some ass and get it to at least a mediocre level.....though Tomlin needs to fix his own tard decisions on challenges

Yeah - Romeo tried to lay the TO to decide whether to challenge Miller's catch (which wasted another TO) on the players, who were having none of it

In the Pittsburgh locker room, the Steelers were dumbfounded by a fourth-quarter sequence that cost the Browns two timeouts. It happened with 3:13 to play and the Steelers having taken a 30-28 lead, pending the extra point, on Heath Miller's 2-yard touchdown catch. Although the catch seemed clear both live and on the initial replay, the Browns called a timeout to consider challenging the call.

In other words, the Browns willingly burned one timeout to contemplate risking a second timeout on a challenge. Which is exactly what happened. Crennel challenged the call, and when replays confirmed the call -- touchdown -- the Browns were out a second timeout.

"I thought it was weird to use two timeouts," Miller said. "I don't know why they would do that."

Nobody knows. In the Cleveland locker room, several seething Browns refused to discuss Crennel's clock mismanagement. They'll be angrier in the coming hours when they realize Crennel basically blamed the whole screw-up on them, saying, "I'm not exactly sure what happened -- (the first) timeout was called on the field. ... Some guys on the field felt we needed to challenge."

Crennel paradoxically tried to take the blame after that, saying, "Put it on me." But by then it was too late. He had already put it on his players. I talked to three different Browns defenders who were on the field for Miller's touchdown, and none of them knew which player, if any player, called the timeout. Defensive tackle Shaun Smith pinned the responsibility to his coach.

"That's not my decision," he said of the timeout and the challenge. "You'll have to ask the coach. I don't call any timeouts."

At least Tomlin only burns one TO on worthless challenges to calls that will not be overturned.
