Default Befuddled and Sputtering...

two key words that Phil Simms has utilized during the game to explain the Steelers offensive game play and plan and he couldn't be more right. Watching the offense has just become an exercise in pain and anguish for Steelers fans.

Default Inept offense

If it was not for a terrific effort from the Defense, the Steelers would have 0pts at half-time.
Will Arians finally realize that sending MM in the middle ain't gonna work. That's the 3rd time in a row that the offense is uncapable of scoring a TD from the 1yd line. Moore and Parker are NOT Brandon Jacobs.

Yes it is pain and anguish, lol,but the play selection is baffling, I know they need to execute, but 2nd and goal from the 4 and empty the backfield (no play action threat) stuns me, and they continue to do that (all season). 4th and goal from the 1 and motion out the FB and run with Moore? Where the hell was Parker and to be honest that is where play action DOES work. I've said it before on here Arians has to go and Tomlins brain cramp and trying a 53 yard field goal at the start of the game made no sense. The officials haven't helped but of course, they STILL HAVE TO EXECUTE BETTER!!

The other thing that is killing me is there have been at least 3 occasions the first half where the offense got lucky and didn't get penalized for delay of game. They have an extremely slow and lazy approach to getting the ball off and its been going on all season.

given the talent on that offense, it's a joke that they are that bad.

Blah Blah Blah hey it looks to me Ben had over 300 Passing yards and a completion percentage of over 80.
Parker had close 100 yards on the ground.

Sure there we No TD, but that was due to penalties and bad field position. Get rid of those two things and at LEAST 2 TD's would have been scored by the Steeler defense.

It was Ben and the entire offense that led them to the game winning field goal.

this was a well called game, and well executed.

The fact is, our offense has had to overcome a lot of things.

They are just now starting to get on track, and Arians with them.

Give it a rest.

I thought the offense played great today - Ben 31-41, 308 yards, Willie 22-104, dominated the TOP...hell, they pretty much dominated the game. But it was the penalties that did them in - 13 penalties is unacceptable, and several of them killed big plays and cost them a TD.
