Maybe they can sell it to Ben, and he can hire himself to be GM, HC, OC, and QB?
Oh it's not just Ben, it's the entire offense. This isn't a dink-and-dunk team, it's a down field team. These WRs should be blowing by DBs, not running routes that only go 5-10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

Besides, scheme doesn't protect a QB, offensive lines do.

Our Offense was terrible this season, that's a plain as the sun rising tomorrow, if you see behind the clouds.
Yinzer is better than a hypocrite.
"wishing for Ben to blow it" - huh? calm down now.
Ben did enough of that for both of US.
Now see, this is where the typical yinzer fails to understand the modern NFL.

The offense didn't get many early leads this season not because of Ben, but because the Steelers wanted to play close to the vest - a.k.a. scared football. They were more worried about TOP than scoring. When you play that style, your offense won't get you many leads, and more pressure will be on the defense.

Not hard to understand.

No, the goat is Tomlin

this isn't the first game of the season lost because he elected to go for what would have been the Suisham's CAREER LONG as well as a record for the history of the field the kick was being attempted in...

how does that happen? even just once, let alone twice? did Tomlin have to take the Wonderlic before being interviewed?

Sure, the missed FG ultimately didn't directly cost the game as the Defense came up with a stop (yet again), however the decision lost the field position battle which put unnecessary pressure on Ben, of which we all now know how that turned out.

Tomlin is easily one of my favorite coaches ever solely due to his demeanor and how he handles the players and the media. However as far as tactical mind I can't help but think he's Forest Gump level the way he's handled live game decisions these past two seasons.

Ben aint going anywhere. Tomlin will be gone with 100% certainty if next season mirrors this one.

I agree, but the problem is, Ben isn't a great downfield passer. He really isn't. He missed Wallace again today on what would have been a long TD. Green Bay and Dallas don't really air it deep all game either. Their WRs do something though that I read about once, they gain yards after they catch the ball.

With Tomlin, while I don't think he'll last as long as Cowher, I don't think last year is it for him.

As for Ben - duh. But silly, knee-jerking yinzers want the 2x super bowl winning QB gone and the OC who never won anything to stay.

I think Ben is still hurt. Big difference between before getting hurt and after. Tomlin is the goat all year.

too many injuries, too many bad decisions, too many fumbles and ints, too many bad losses to shitty teams. The season ended the exact way they have played. The thing that bothers me the most wasTroy finally came back to being Troy. The secondary has studs 4 deep now at corner and all I wanted was to get into the playoffs to see how awesome our defense would be. Great Defense in the playoffs is 10 times what it is in the regular season and the Steelers had the best defense in the league.

As far as Tomlin as a coach. He coached like the team played. Up and down and not enough killer instinct here and not enough adjustments there. I think his coaching on the field wasn't as bad as his leadership during the week. Too many distractions going on internally. Whether it was Mendenhall, or Big Ben and Haley. I think his pulse on the team hasn't been good this year.
