Here’s my deal...even if you don’t want to sneak, how dumb do you have to be to choose a toss sweep play against a fast defense instead?

And also...FUCKING GET RID OF THE “try and draw them offside” bullshit. It NEVER works, and you look stupid when you do it.

oh u right....I remember it worked once this year or last. forget the game..but I'm like it worked!!! one time for the ages. my biggest pet peave is the attempt to draw off side and end up punting..
.better bet is a hurry up and lineup and snap quick like u do on spike play and have ben fall down on pounce ass and bell shove him forward.

I can recall them failing running behind the fullback, and handing off to the fullback. Maybe I'm just remembering the bad here. Certainly not defending the toss play, but Christ you'd think Bell could get one foot there.


Dude...did you see how many Jags were in the backfield before Bell had even turned upfield?

Against a fast D, a slow-developing toss sweep is STUPID.

When a D is fast, you run RIGHT AT THEM, not laterally!

I think every defense is fast enough to stop that lame call..

As dumb as a goal line package with an empty backfield

Ya dude. Art II is going to fire Ben or even punish him for running a QB sneak.

We are talking about a football play here. Not some high degree of insubordination.

Shit, we all saw what this team does with a malcontent. Maybe Ben should have run the sneak. With any luck he could have still made the Super Bowl after Duece sent him to Philly or Minn for a day 2 pick.


They don't practice it. They don't have a call for it. If just he an Pouncey knows and it doesn't work or one of them gets hurt I'm sure he'd feel like a fucking moron.

I wonder how much time is really spent in NE with Brady diving into piles practicing the QB sneak.

And your original comment was about obeying your boss. Not the amount of time (or lack there of) spent working on the play.

It’s an elementary play. One every team runs.

Not ours though. Chicken little, the Lil Engine that Could, and the Cowardly Lion are all too busy shivering in fear that Ben might spontaneously combust if he runs said play.

While I agree that the QB sneak was the no-brainer I just wish our defense would not have gotten their asses handed to them all game long.

should be 1st option with guy bens size. when less then yard needed and the resulting pile of humanity theres noway to accurately tell where ball is. they always seem to give the offense the benefit of doubt unless a real shove back by the defense is noticed.

Here are your options:

1. Give it to Bell up the middle
2. QB sneak
3. Fullback trap (this used to be a Steelers staple)

4. Play-action

....
....

5. Anything else

Only this cuckold fuck could overthink things with two All-Pro interior linemen, a HOF talent RB, and a 275 lb. QB that can move his feet.

They could also try snapping the ball with >10 left on the play clock.


Don’t forget 0....run to the line just 7 & 53 and snap it within 3 seconds. Instead of waiting for the defense.

I think everything 955 posted is wrong. The Steelers don’t live in their own fears. They play to win, baby. At least I remember somebody saying that once. :roll:

The QB sneak is not the issue. QB sneaks don't always work. We should be able to get a first down without a QB sneak. We have a great RB.

If I'm going to place blame for that loss. I'm blaming the Defense and the Shazier injury. We scored 42 points. If you can't win scoring 42, it's the Defense.
