Thanks for the explanation. lol

You think that there is alot of "stupid" people here huh? Oh well. Let the people say there peace. I dont think he should be fired, but when evaluated this should be looked at by Tomlin or the Rooneys.

Funny.

Our QB really isn't that slow. He is big, but not that slow. Also, they GAMEPLANNED for that specific instance, and had the play to beat the formation. Trai said he blew his assignment, which caused the problem.

And if you remember the SB. Twice Ben did an end around... once he picked up a TD, the other time he picked up a first down towards the end of the game.... so he has a history of doing it. I don't think it is too far out of the range of possiblity to think that was a viable option based on history.

I still don't like the calls on first and second down. But once again, that is the issue of running the ball to eat the clock. And again, i am starting to look further up the chain then the coaching staff.

Ben is not the same QB he was in 05, when it comes to tucking it and running.

By the way, what do you mean by "further up the chain"?

Funny, I don't believe I called anyone on here "stupid." I said it's stupid to pin everything that goes wrong at the feet of one person. Big difference. The people are allowed to say their peace, but they should also expect the things they say to be challenged.

Cough... Rooneys Cough.


They have created a culture of old school football, which I love for the most part. However, that culture includes a mentality that you run out the clock by running the football instead of driving to put more points on the board.

It has been the same here through three head coaches.

As I said in a previous post, we have the best owners in the NFL. I just think that this is that little chink in an otherwise perfect armor.
