I didn't pay much attention at the time, choosing instead to focus on the TV screen in front of me during the game's final minutes....but some of the reputable posters on this esteemed website were actually arguing that the Steelers should have tried for a two-point conversion after the AB touchdown, which put the Steelers up 18-10.

You fuckin' kidding me??? Some of you seriously think that the Steelers should have bypassed an opportunity to make this a two-score margin in order to chase a 10-point lead. I was just sweating out the extra point, letting out a yelp, knowing that we had regained the two-score lead.

Tell ya what...going for two in that spot would have arguably represented Mike Tomlin's deepest journey into dumbfuckedness, his worst decision ever....and that's saying something!!

Please....stop being stupid on this. I'm trying to get my point across without calling names, attacking the poster as it were....but some of you are making this goddamn difficult.

The way our offense looks in the red zone, I'm not sure we should EVER go for 2.

Ever.

I agree on the PAT. Hated the punt though.

At least we didn't have to watch AB try a double move.

I’ll admit that I was thinking ass-backwards there...worrying about the 10 point lead, and not even giving a thought to taking a TD/2 point PAT out of the equation. I guess that’s why I sit my ass in my recliner on Sunday afternoons, and Tomlin makes the big bucks!!! :mrgreen:

Swiss, someone even had the audacity to tell me that an 8 point lead is just as good as a 1.5 score lead as evidence for why we should go for 2. Bewildering.

The Steelers were inches from losing because Tomlin went for one.

"Two score lead" is the dumbest meme in football. It's Tomlin-think. It's Phil Simms-tier thinking.

You didn't (or can't) explain why that line of reasoning is wrong.

Steelers may have lost had Tomlin gone for two in that spot.

Dumbest meme in football, eh? One score lead can be overcome in a single possession. Two-score lead takes two possessions to make up Explain what's so dumb about that?
