I agree the turtle shell play calling sure as shit contributed to the loss.
That one is hung on the coaching staff.

The handling of that last possession was bascially the Offense admitting that they couldn't win it for the team and us fans and it would be up to the Defense. Then they took 2 stupid penalties and tried to single handedly lose the game without the D even seeing the field. Then special teams put more pressure on the D by adding another 10 yards with another costly penalty. How many mistakes can we make at the end of the game to lose a hard fought battle? This is a good portion of the team being undisciplined thanks to coaching and cannot be tolerated like last year or we will watch the Ratbirds in the playoffs. This is the same Cowher conservative approach that lost us many games in teh past. I would rather lose trying to keep the other team off the field. If you throw and don't get it at least you gave yourself a shot. The element of surprize, what's the worst thing that can happen you punt from the 3 yard line, oh that actually happened. Just once, I'd like to start off 7-0. How many times can you think to yourself "one first down wins the game" Arians has no nads.

So, just saying.

This loss has a silver lining. Now we don't have to deal with the talking
head idiots say, "Are the Steelers better without Ben?"
Dueschmanpita and Boldin did not set the world on fire yesterday. And living here in Baltimore (trust me it sucks) their fans are complaining about how the Offense sucks so far this year. Outside of the Sheetz stains where Boldin caught 3 td's, they have been a bust. No jellin going on here. So don't turn this into some Daniel Snyder free agent contest mentality because outside of a last second catch that shouldn't have happened, they were a non factor. Our Offense and special teams lost that game. Charlie is who charlie is. An older 3rd stringer who can win against TB, just not Baltisuck. Too many free agents is most likely a bad thing. Right T.O. We do things right here in Stiller country and build our winners. And I'm curious how you quantified those two players as being the difference in points. Did they take Jeff Reed out last night to a local Sheetz piss house and doctor his drinks? or yours?

Okay, the 3rd down play call was a counter. Is it just me, or is a counter THAT close to our own endzone a REALLY, REALLY, REAAAALLLLYYYY bad idea? You've got weight on your line, slam it and hope, screen pass, maybe even an off-tackle run, but really...a counter? It nearly bit us with a safety.

The only reason you even got "their _last_ chance" is the lack of nads by our inept coaching staff.

One friggin 1st down and that game is over at 14 - 10. ONE...ONE.

How hard is it to see that?

All I know is this.

We are both ahead of the *****cats in Ohio, as it should be.

When we play again, you'll have Ben back, we'll have Reed and Gaither back. No more excuses after that game.

Scoffed? I knew they were good additions. Everyone and their grandmother knew they were thin at WR, but really, I think Mason had the bigger game of any of them.
