...put the ball into the hands of Fitzgerald Touissaint.

That's where this game was lost.

Exactly.Mr I don’t live in my fears was happy with his 8pt lead.
How many times did we pass the ball on 1st down in the second half?

Tomlin and Haley are fucking gutless. Wasted possessions to turtle early in the 4th.

Steelers will not win anything more of relevance with those two running the show.

I love that people still think Tomlin has “it” to take us to the promised land again. It ain’t gonna happen.

And frenchy has what, maybe 1 offensive play to his credit and just signed off the street?

We'll run the wheels off bell in a playoff game thats well in hand vs Miami but when we need bell he doesn't get the call??

The run call on 2nd and 20 was the deal breaker.
You basically gave up!
Why not try to get 7-8 yards and maybe draw a PI or defensive holding?

We didn't even get a call (that wasn't automatic) the entire fucking game. 2 penalties for 5 yards.

A call on the Pats? They had 2 penalties for 4 yards. LOL. The Steelers had for more penalties, penalty yards and two of those resulted in first downs.


As an aside, on the Coach attacks ... why does Butler get a pass on the D issues but Tomlin gets smashed? I am not saying there isn't logic to blaming Tomlin. But things are oddly silent relative to Butler.

Ohhh fuck it
Win the last two and get a bye
Who knows what will happen after that

Tha said, the NFL took another piece out of my fandom tonight. I slowly but surely keep,losing interest due to ambiguity and wins and losses being decided outside the lines too much and IMHO intentionally so.

Also I have no faith anymore in Tomlin and Haley against quality coached opponents. They are simply too conservative and inflexible. They don't help their players. IMHO they almost engineer d a game that would come down to the last possession and seemed happy for that. They a chance to not be in that position and chose the path that didn't involve individual risk

Because Butler at least tried to do something differently. Yeah, it didn't work, and yeah, he should have done something to help on Gronk, but he didn't do what he always does.

Tomlin and Haley did.

The defnese was good enough without their star and top CB
They were let down by typical and overly conservative coaches ... the exact type of coaching that Brady and BB pray for
