When we passed the ball 3 times on the goalline, the "fans" were ready to string Arians up.

When we ran the ball 3 times on the goalline, same thing

2 runs and a pass. Hang Arians.

2 passes and a run. Fire Arians.

It's just a broken record...

Last I checked assistants don't play the game! I think the Steeler have been holding up well with the number of injuries on the team. A 7-3 record with two games lost due to give-a-ways, those two teams were more than happy to get them too. The Steelers have played a hell of a schedule this year and it is not over. So if there is something that stinks about the Steelers, deciding to play Ben with a injured shoulder would be it. Two losses this year can be pointed at Ben struggling to get the ball out. The down side, it effects play calls, confidence and momentum of the game. Why not let him get healed up and rested, we have a great back up in Byron.

Can you believe they are actually #1 in kickoff coverage and #2 in punt coverage. I certainly didn't think I'd see that in the steelers

I think we all were ready to kick ligashenky out of town after last season( the jones drew return in the playoffs could have been the last straw). But look what the addition of some players can really help ( fox, bailey, woods)

Russell has been kind of beter at returning kicks, but there has to be better blocking. Next year I guarantee they'll have it. baby steps

I don't think the Steelers' front five could block Gary Coleman if he was blitzing.
Now I'd pay to see to that! Like a train wreck... nasty, but hypnotically watchable!

It's amazing to me how many people defend this Offensive coordinator. And it also amazes me how many people actually believe that football players could even take a shower properly if not being given detail instruction on how to do so. Head coaches and especially assistant coaches are so under-rated in footbal it actually gets sickening sometimes. Put a head coach on a team without any assistant coaches and that team will go the vaunted 0-16. Put 11 football players on a field without assistant coaches and you'll see what headless chickens with football uniforms look like.

I have to defend Arians on the goal line play calling. We don't have a short-yardage back thanks to injuries...MM and Willie are both speed backs. The good news is Heath is back so we can throw to him like we did tonight.

Other thing I wouldn't mind seeing is using Spaeth as a running back in short yardage situations. Do it a few times so teams look for the run when they see him come in...and then pass in some of those situations.

What I find amazing...

is that the Steelers started executing tonight, and all of a sudden, there were a lot of plays that made a lot of sense.

When an offense doesn't execute, you can't call plays that demand good execution.

Any play makes lots of sense against a team that is 1-9-1

and you're not a good assistant coach if your calling plays that demand "good execution" when you know you have an offense that can't give you that "good execution". If an offense sucks at executing pass plays because the o-line cant block and the other teams defense has absolutely no respect for our rush and keep blitzing and double covering receivers then it is the offensive coordinators responsibilty to revolve the play calling around that fact. He can't say, "well I'm still gonna call 40 pass plays a game regardless of how bad they are at running them."

That's Steeler Football.....(to nick Al Pacino's line from Any Given Sunday)....That's all it is....

................in the words of the immortal Terrahawks......

"Expect the unexpected".



So you either deal with it and remain Black and Gold for life, (if you're sensible) or f**k off to NE or whoever else is en vogue that season! (if you're a Twat)

Steeler fans know the ins and outs of Heartbreaking seasons, dodgy calls from both Coaches and Officials, bad executions from players.....Lots of hype/hope to have it all end at a Championship Game......there isn't much that can phase this lot anymore! (Just maybe a crazy Englishman going on an irrelevant rant once in a while). They've been there, seen it, supported through it, survived it, and came back for more the next season!

That's Steeler Football!

No primadonna's, no sulking crybabies, no workshitties, just hardworking , professional, in your face, get in, get the job done, get out, ambassadors for their City.

Sometimes the results are what everyone is looking for, sometimes....s**t happens as they say.
