Everyone is focusing on the 2nd and long. The bigger heresy was 1st and 20. Easiest passing down to get 7 yards. We did the same thing on the play before Brown got hurt. A good running play gets you five yards. A good passing play gets you 8 yards. When it’s 1st and 10 the downside of passing may help offset the upside. On 1st and 20 the upside of passing far outweighs the downside.

Insult to injury- Conner’s knee injury occurred in the 1st-20 play.

I think Ben Roethlisberger had one...count it....ONE...pass on first down in the second half, outside of the final drive.

That 2 & 23 draw to Frenchy might be Haley’s worst playcall of his dumb fucking career and that is saying something.

No, DHB played most of his snaps in 2nd half and was run blocking quite often by design.

Sad.

Romo said in the 4th that the steelers ought not turtle
He said BB was best in the business when a team is predictable ... they shut simplicity down.

It's like Groundhog Day with our coaches ....

They played scared and lost
They were beating the Pats well on O and decided to take the game out of their main players hands.
It is the contradiction of Tomlin ... preaches players over stratagy but pulls the rug out on players to sate his fear. Not sure how you don't stay aggressive through your key players last night in the fourth
