Default You guys got screwed by your coach

Pats fan here. yeah, im probably not very welcome, but i was rooting for the steelers last night, and it was miserable.
yeah, there were mistakes on both sides of the ball, and the officials blew a few calls. but your coach played not to lose. he tried to play it safe, and didnt play to win at the end. ben had been getting the underneath stuff all game, so why, when you needed to run out the clock, did the coach call three runs? the three runs wouldnt be so bad if the first two runs netted more than three yards. but a quarterback draw on third and seven? that just screams "i dont have confidence that my qb wont screw this up". im pissed at the coach, so i cannot imagine how you guys feel. the guy might as well have punted on second down because it would have been safer.

Id say we got screwed more by the refs. Where was the holding on that 2 pt conversion? Ward made a nice ass catch and they call it back..

even madden and michaels were saying they didn't see any holding.

blah

refs suck. pats have been getting some good calls lately, but against the colts its always a one-sided game. you just have to accept that you gotta play better than a three point game to win it.
but yea, refs screwed ye too. from the review, to the phantom calls. steelers dbs were getting away with murder though. there was plenty that the jags were getting away with too.

dont worry, we will demolish these jags in the divisionals

Well, the the head coach does not call the offense. True, Ben had been getting the underneath stuff (although he had Holmes underneath when he went for the homerun to Davenport which got picked), but I think that getting 5 yards on 1st down fooled themselves. Arians did get way conservative on that drive, and he, like coaches sometimes do, overthink the situation. 1:30 is a lot of time to still win a game, and they ended up giving the ball back with 2:30+. I hate it when OC's don't just run their offense. Let the players play and take what the defense hase given you. It sure as heck was not on the ground.

Hey, had our team played better from the start, the refs calls wouldn't have mattered, so there is no use blaming them. As for our coaches calls----Perhaps I would have made a different call myself, but if the call would have worked the coaches would have looked like geniuses. Hindsight is 20/20. All in all, I'm happy keeping our coaches, and you can keep your "coach of the year".

You'll have to forgive me Shrew---but I'll be rooting for those Jags against you. But good luck anyway. (PS I'll be rooting for the colts and whoever else you play as well---but I'm sure you understand.)

Yep - that one play lost us the game. Riiiiiighto. I think you need to watch the game again, BBFW. Every Steelers unit on that field last night played a part in that loss. There isn't one play or player that was the reason for our demise and who should unfairly shoulder all of the blame.

Tomlin on the QB sweep: "That was something we worked on all week and we felt good about it. We actually had the look and we didn’t execute it. Good job by them."

Roethlisberger: "That was a designed run play. We called it just to run. It was a good play, it was man, but they got outside and we were just trying to protect the ball."

It's not the play call; it's rarely the play call. It's being talented enough to enforce your call onto the other team. The Steelers had the matchup they wanted and failed to execute when the chips were on the line.

If you can't do that, you don't move to the next round. And you shouldn't. We finished right where we should have. I would have liked another few weeks of joy, but this was pretty good, coming off of last year.

Great post Tom. I hope now this belabored subject can be properly laid to rest.
