One first down and the game was over. Throw the damn ball and at least try. Giving the Rats a short field anything can happen and it did. Poor coaching.

Yea your probably right.........But I'm hoping for some new thinkin around these parts when it comes to putting teams away..........First downs wins games......Short little crotch rocket thows will get you 4-6 yards a pop..........I just don't like how the Steelers go and hide in their turtle shell at the end of games........When you do that, the predator knows exactly where you are and what your doing............I'm just tired of seeing this play calling out of my Team year after year.........That is one of our only pitfalls that holds us back for more championship runs..........All I'm saying is lets lay it all out there and go for it a little more, rather than lay back and hope the other team doesn't.....

no he did not. 40+ yards on that end of the field is never something you want to rely on. the defense gave the offense the ball inside the 35 to start TWICE! they werent able to get a first down on either of those two drives, forcing two very difficult field goals. dont blame Reed for this, the Ravens kicker missed one from that range as well in the same end of the field. our offense only showed up on 2 drives the entire game. thats what cost us the game

yes he did, that's what he is supposed to do he's making millions to do just that
everybody f*** up that i know but he kicked the ball not anybody else and if he cannot be trusted than he should not be there

I agree with the OP. On third down with two minutes to go, you pass for the first down. You get it, game over. You miss getting the 1st, and Baltimore still gets it at the 50. Whether there is 60 seconds or 100 seconds to go is immaterial to Baltimore's fate. Any reasonably good team can cover 50 yards in either of those times. Bad decision by Tomlin IMHO. There was no downside to passing on third except an INT. Go for the win.

Not a great game, to many mental mistakes but overall we are going to be fine. We lost this one and it is in the books time to move on to the Brownies and move forward from there.


Anyone think we would go undefeated this year? Not me I said 12-4 this year maybe 11-5.

well how about the offense not getting a first down to close the game out at the end? you cant put a loss on a single player. Jeff Reed makes plenty of critical field goals for us. i can live with a loss or two due to 45 and 49 yard FG misses in one of the hardest stadiums to kick in in the NFL.

i gotta disagree with those that think we should have thrown the ball on 3rd down. Our passing game was pathetic all day & we were very unlikely to get a first down based on how the game had gone to that point. With almost two minutes remaining & Baltimore with no timeouts, the correct call was a run to roll the clock down to just over a minute. You have to believe our Defense 9 out of 10 times makes the stops to win the game. If anything I think our defense played too soft on the final drive.

no they shouldn't have thrown it on 3rd down....they should have thrown it on second. play action would have been very effect.
