Default Re: Steelers Report Card: Game 14 / 49ers 20, Steelers 3

TRH and others got it right. Our coaches blew this game. Letting BB play in the 4th was the dumbest thing I've seen in many years from our coaching staff. Many games we lose is that we get out COACHED. They figured out how to get the match ups they wanted with middle linebackers covering tight ends and it worked for them. We made no adjustments to counter this. Our offensive game plan might have worked but it required a QB who was healthy. BB's throwing motion was definitly affected by his inability to plant, step, and throw. BB without his mobility in the pocket is just not BB. I am happy Smith didn't kill BB. Again no help for Starks against Smith when it was obvious he was struggling.... I'm just saying..... coaching sucked.

My card would go:

QB- F, A for effort though
RB- B, good effort, okay results
WR- C, veterans Cotchery and Miller get a B but as a whole a C is generous
OL- F, didn't block anybody
DL- C, shut down the run but no qb pressure at all
LB- C, same as the d line
DB- F, CUSHIONS!!! and Taylor getting beat quite a few times, Clark played well.
ST- F, we started in our own 20 everytime but twice and 3 times inside our 10
Coaching- F, I don't even want to start the rant, flat horrible and unaccountable

I know the injuries and suspension hurt us, if we were 100% I have no doubt we would have won. But we knew for a week that Ben was hurt bad, Pouncey was out, Harrison was out and a few others were questionable, the coaches should have had the team ready and playing with heart and somebody like Timmons, Polamalu, or Woodley should have stepped up and made a play knowing that Ben could not.
