Default Why not run with Dixon?

We tried it twice and had huge gains. Why not make the Ravens stop him running?

Just idiotic IMO. That drive playcalling was stupid to not even once attempt to run w/ Dixon.

You just can't defend the play calling. Throwing deep on 2nd down and 6!!! Have we not shown that we can run the ball?!!!! Why not run Dixon!??

Really? Funny, but people bitched ALL NIGHT that we were running too much again. Make up your goddamn minds, folks.

I would have loved tto see them let dixon use his legs more, misdirection play there in OT would have worked.

We had three drives that had the chance to be game winning drives.


Aside from the QB sneak, we never even gave Dixon the OPTION of running.

I'm okay with throwing, but run Dixon outside on a boot-leg option.

It scored us a touchdown, and then they never even bothered to try to put him in a situation like that again.

They made the game harder than it needed to and it resulted in an interception.

I'm okay with taking a deep shot on 2nd and 6. I'm just not okay with probably close to 15-20 plays with 0 of them using the legs of your athletic to even try and make somethin happen.

I didn't mind the running but you have to let Dixon's legs do something, the passing game was not that good in the 2nd half

BA was content to bring up another 3rd down and then let dixon sit and try and pass from the pocket!

Another loss down to Brucey!!

2 Times Dixon rolls out and good things happen...what does Arians do...never calls any kind of rollout any other time.

There was yardage out there for Dixon with his legs and the Steelers didn't exploit it at all.
