For some reason while we were at Jacksonville's 26 yard line Cowher decided to run. Willie almost fumbled. Then Maddox fumbled the ball and instead of dropping on it tried to pick it up.

J.Scobee kicks 70 yards from JAX 30 to PIT 0. Q.Morgan pushed ob at JAX 26 for 74 yards (R.Mathis).
1-10-JAC26 (14:51) W.Parker left end to JAX 29 for -3 yards (A.Ayodele). FUMBLES (A.Ayodele), and recovers at JAX 29. W.Parker to JAX 29 for no gain (P.Spicer).
2-13-JAC29 (14:04) W.Parker right guard to JAX 27 for 2 yards (M.Stroud, D.Cooper).
3-11-PIT36 (13:37) T.Maddox FUMBLES (Aborted) at JAX 27, RECOVERED by JAX-R.Hayward at JAX 36. R.Hayward to JAX 36 for no gain (T.Maddox).

I can't believe Tommy played THAT bad today. I kept wait for Batch to come in. I'm glad I wasn't holding my breath.

Well you cant blame cowher for trying to run it for a couple plays (especially considering turnover tommy was completing more passes to the other team). That is the norm and a relatively safe play. From what I saw off gamecrap willie was doing a bit better in towards the end. Well it is over now, and it wasnt an AFC North game so we are lucky about that. I think Heath showed some flashes and maybe Ben will look his direction a bit more after that performance!

Running the ball was the best option..but Bettis should have been in there..he's the short yardage beast.

That was definitely one of the worse performances at QB I've seen in a while, but I put the blame on Cowher for his stubbornness. Once you stink, you stink and when there's no indication that you're getting back on track, it's the coach's job to make some adjustments. Oh well, we're still gonna win it all anyway...

The thing I didn't like about the run call was didn't he have Willie run to the side. Why not get Bettis in and let him pound a few down the middle?

I heard Ditka saying on ESPN today that coaches(the good ones) never coach thinking about what happened or what bad could happen. They just make a call. Word is Parker might have scored on the pitch, but we fumbled end of story. So play call was great. Watch the tape. Parker easily could have gotten at least 5 yards. But execution was lacking. Overall no one has pointed out that even with two loses, both have come on the last play of the game. Folks we are playing 60 minutes a game and this is still good news.
