Default "Playing not to lose"

playing not to lose has cost the steelers again. rather than eating up the clock to keep the chains moving and possibly scoring again they decided to run the 1, 2, 3 flop offense.

tomlin gets an "F"

YEP. That call on 3 and 6 with Ben running a QB sweep was IDIOTIC and playing not to lose. Sorry WINNERS aren't afraid to throw the ball there.

Having Ben run the ball on third down is the one play that will stick in my head the entire off season. Ben was on fire in the second half and Arian calls a run on third down? I would call a pass play for Hines or Health, get the first down and run out the clock.

Yep...Tomlin left it all on the field. Going for it on fourth down, going for two...he went down fighting.

Can't complain too much though, considering all the injuries.

Sorry Tomlin is the head coach, NOT Arians. Tomlin needs to override his call and tell him to air it out. I'd rather loss on a bad Ben throw then watch the life sucked out of us on that last drive.

As soon as we ran that play I knew we were going to lose.

By far, one of the worst calls I've ever seen. That stupid end zone fade on the second 2 point try was a pretty close second.

Yes Tomlin gets an F for not kicking extra point on the 12 after the penalty. That FRIGGIN IDIOT ARIANS GETS A DOUBLE F FOR PLAYING NOT TO LOSE, What a dumb call, run a boot with no option to pass. Aside from injuries, and I have said it before on these forums, is Arians, he cannot call a game, he needs to go!!!!!!
