I think he does it to give Hines a catch to keep his streak going. If that's why we run that play...peace. But to do it multiple times, and last night on consecutive plays???? I can't stand that play.

thats "predictable" Arians for you.
The screen's useful to delete a coming blitz, but not 2 plays in a row.

I also noticed on one set of downs last night, we pulled the "mendenhall up the middle....mendenhall up the middle.....mendenhall up the middle" again. Stuffed.
I don't understand why they keep running the same thing again and again.

I'm glad we're not perfect yet. The teams that win it all are usually good solid teams that get better during the course of the season. We have some kinks to work out, but this is a good football team. Staying healthy and peaking at the end of the season are the 2 most important things in winning a championship.

Yeah, I know exactly which pass you're talking about. Wasn't a stupid pass by Ben at all...he was just hurried into throwing it before El was supposed to be ready was all. Basically the equivalent of throwing it away, but with a slight chance of El happening to turn around and be ready. Better than a sack (which was coming) for sure though.

and there's your fine line between a good season and a bad season.. the Bengals game yesterday, Miami game, Falcons game, and maybe even Titans game were all losses last season. this year they are wins. yeah, we dropped one late against the Ravens. it looked like a goal-line stand was going to win that game, but the Ravens got a second chance and took advantage of it.

And yes, the team does have some issues. But no more so than any other team that has a top or decent winning record right now.

Ravens got beat by the Bungles and almost lost to the Bills in OT.
Saints lost to the Clowns and a couple other mediocre teams.
Pats lost to the Clowns and are extremely inconsistent.
Even the Colts are looking human.

Just a weird year where a lot of close games are being won and some odd blowouts are happening. I'm just happy that the Steelers have won the majority of those close games and have been on the winning end of the two blowouts they've been involved in. Things could be A LOT worse.

Cmon aside from some major luck (Benson play at the end) and Gay getting his jock handed to him all night by TO the Def played great. Reed makes that FG and it wasn't a nailbiter, Goodell doesn't make 50yds of in isible penalties appear on that interception it is over, Benson doesn't doesn't sell his soul to the Devil for that play it is over. The ball doesn't sail on Ben or Miller just bumps it and no interception, game over. Our pass def (aside from Gay, go figure) was very good, that many passing yards on that many attempts isn't bad. Be happy for the return of the blitz! The ball bounced the Bengals way all the second half, we still won and are 6-2!

It could have also been over if we didn't have those injuries to the offensive line. The offense struggled a lot after that. Maybe that's why Arians pulled out that trick play with Randle El.

I think those consecutive screens were more of letting the sudden OL issues get used to the positions for a few plays. That screen is a safe play and gives a chance for Ward to possibly make a play. On that note Legursky filled in very well except he bobs his head right before each snap I am stunned the def didn't pick up on it to anticipate the snap count! Glad Pouncey was able to return!
