Default Not a good game for the coaching staff

They really blew it down the stretch there. You need to play to win. They have to at least try to get the first down. The short field made it too easy with that much time. The clock wasn't even a factor.

And Dick LeBeau's blitz call was awful. He is one of the greatest coaches of all-time, but he blew that one. No way Troy should be anywhere but the secondary to do what he does best - make plays.

Still, a great 3-1 start to the season. We will go to Baltimore later in the season and get this one back. We are in good shape. This one stinks because we are much better than Baltimore.

The penalties really murdered us. You just can't get penalized 3 times in 4 plays inside your own 10 yard line trying to ice the game.

If none of those penalties happen, Baltimore probably starts on their own 35 instead of our 40.

this wasn't the coaching staff's fault

it was the penalties and missed FGs that lost us the game.

also, as much as I love love LOVE Charlie, he's just not as good as Ben. With Ben we easily win by 14 points or more.

Default I blame the loss on Arians

Defense gave the offense good field position after those 2 TO and they didn't score on either

He also tried to make big plays on 3rd and 5? Wtf is the matter with you. Get the 5 and continue

have to disagree somewhat. blitzing troy P when we knew end zone shots were coming was just pure stupidity. we couldn't have gift wrapped that TD any better

All good points. There were a lot of things that lost the game for us today. It's hard to really point at one and say that was the end all to be all.

Get 'em healthy and ready in the bye and get Ben ready to spank some Brownie ass!

3-1 is better than I expected.

Yep should have played those plays more conservatively. It's a heartbreaking loss. Bummed naturally but I still think this team has a lot of potential. I think these four games showed people we're alot better than they thought.

The third down play before Reed's second miss was a brutal mistake by Batch. With the wind in their faces at the open end of Heinz field shouldn't a first down be THE priority?

Charlie had ARE wide open for a first down over the middle. The gut shot toss in the endzone left Reed with a 49 yarder. Major screw up.

Reed. WTF. You lost this game for us single handedly. What was with that last kickoff that gave them the good field position? And missing two field goals. I thought you were supposed to be money at Heinz Field. So much for all of the Reed apologists around here. He cost us that game plain and simple.
