Default I hate the play calling but......

..as much as we blame BA for the stupid playcalling at this point I think Mike Tomlin is just as much to blane for what we see out there on a down to down basis. We need to run the ball like we actually want run the Damn ball, w/ a fb and some conviction.

i actually thought the playcalling was good. execution was off. ben overthrew a wide open wallace, wallace dropped another pass that would have been a 1st down. that's not on arians.

i liked how we played aggressively for the 1st down to seal the game

i hate arians but i'll give credit where it's due. he called a good game today.

I actually liked today's play calling. Some plays we're poorly executed, and that happens. But unless Arians is suited up and playing out their, you can't blame him for the lack of execution.

Exactly. I am not an Arians fan but sometimes the problem is flat out poor execution.

Not only are we not that team anymore, we are so far from being that team that we struggle to close games out. We couldn't be that team either this season even if we wanted to.

Never had that problem under Cowher.

Not saying Tomlin is the problem though, I think it is more the Arians/Roethlisberger combo with the dying need to air it out every single play every single game. It's like passing the ball is the only way to win. Running the ball is just a compliment, and a bad one at that.

I am tired of watching our backs run into an already collapsed hole.

Heath also dropped a pass right between the numbers that resulted into points as well. We should have routed, period. Just shooting ourselves in the foot really. What worries me is the lack of pass rush but we made up for it and finally got interception turnovers from the defense.
