If the same players would have executed in the 1st half, maybe we wouldn't have been in that predicament.

It all goes together- The coaches called the plays and the players executed them in the 2nd half to get the lead back. If Ben ran for the first we'd all be saying 'great play calling'.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, passing the ball was working out so nicely that I don't understand why they chose three running plays deep in their own end at that pivotal point in the game. This has been common throughout the year with them that they want to rely on the run game in these situations but they just haven't had it this year. FWP did have a phenomenal season, but it was full of ups and downs running the ball.

Besides that, not only did Ben give the play away right off the bat, but the LT (forget who it was at this point in the night) ran out too wide assuming Ben was following. He should've taken the inside block to clear room for Ben on the outside, because the inside guy ended up blowing the play up who he missed. I don't know if this is a valid point or not, but grant it Ben has more power at the line of scrimmage this year calling audibles and checks, but even in this case tonight with the blown up 3rd down sneak, that side of the Jags D was stacked, why didn't he audible out and run to the right? That's an area where I hope some changes will be made for 2008, giving some more power back to the O-coordinator to check out of plays.

I do agree Harrision was held on that last drive, but of course it wasn't called.

Give the Jags credit though. They may not have had fantastic numbers, but they made plays when it counted the most. Second half you didn't hear much from them, but the 3rd down stop, the run by Garrard, and holding the Steelers on the 2 pt conversion were all fantastic plays that they pulled through on.

Cheer for the Jags though next week. I was really hoping to win tonight so we could go back to NE and spoil their 'perfect' season and make up for all of hte times they have beat us in the playoffs since 96 or so.

Moving on to 2008....

Yep.

Just like we were ticked at the Screen passes a couple weeks ago, but was excited about the screens this week, because they worked.

*sigh*

Just logged in since before the loss...what a great game. I'm very satisfied with the player's performance (in the second half). They left everything out there last night, and you can't ask for anything else. The playcalling however...well that's for another thread.

Good season guys.

I was driving through snow during this game and actually was sitting for several hours while an avalanche was cleared. I did manage to listen to a good part of the game. I'm glad they had the fire to come back in the second half......but disappointed at the end for playing not to win. Hopefully Tomlin learned a lot this season and will bring the noise next. His first draft will tell us a lot about his thought process. Still a pretty good season overall. Just need to put it all together for 2008 and kick some Patsie ass.
