You can't make this shit up!


Tomlin could bludgeon a sackful of newborn puppies on the 50 yard line of Heinz Field with a capacity crowd watching and some people would still defend him.
It's absurd at this point.

"going with your gut" ..

translation: "not doing your fucking homework"

Or, if you prefer:

"going with your gut"

translates to: "fits my argument and give me an excuse"

I think it's a real stretch to say that giving the Jags the realistic option to have 4 chances to make the 1st down instead of 3 was a benefit of the onsides decision. Rather, I'd say that's another reason why the onsides decision was the wrong decision. The Steelers were more likely to get the ball back at their 36 if they had kicked it deep and forced a punt than some scenario where they stopped the Jags 4 times.

agree..jags would play far more conservative deep in their end then getting ball near midfield. their main job being no turnovers and making us burn timeouts. I hope.. at mid field they can be more daring.
