Call me Private Hudson, Rock Hudson, Jennifer Hudson, whatever. It pains me to say it but Tomlin will not beat that team.


Mike Tomlin needs to pull a 2005 Bill Cowher and go completely against type.

Although Cowher was much more flexible than we give him credit for. Tomlin is actually WAY more conservative and stubborn than Cowher ever was.

We can have all the talent in the world. A Mike Tomlin-coached Steeler will never...EVER...beat a Belichick-coached Patriots team until Tomlin learns to stop living in his fears and play the entire 60 minutes balls out to win.

I have no faith the Steelers will beat New England in Pittsburgh...in New England...at a neutral site...until he shows he’s learned this lesson.

Believing they can win in NE is inconsistent with the belief that they will not. The latter is a negation of the former.

Private Hudson is fine by me.

Believe assholes.

This is season is far from over.

More I think about the fake spike...angrier I get...for one of two reasons.

a) That was really the call and the Steelers’ braintrust thought it would catch the uber-disciplined Patriots napping or

b) It was a miscommunication because Ben really wanted to spike and/or thought they should, and the coaches disagreed but didn’t get a good play called in

Either one pisses me off because it shows a complete failure in situational management.


You had made that point last night, Jeems....and it's absolutely true.

WHY would they think their last shot at winning in regulation was best with one fuckin' guy in the pattern???

Makes me sick watching the replay with our best options (JuJu, Leveon) standing there picking their collective asses.

very true....reflecting here..why the hell weren't 2 plays already set when the long review was in place? were they that caught off guard the catch was no good? ok guys. if call reversed heres our 2 plays and then a kick if we fail.. and we get those 2 shitty plays ?? no bell? no Bryant? juju? even outlaw again? no. we get a bench player dhb...if bell catches that ball in that same spot he could score juking and trucking a guy..dhb? wtf!!..and a semi trick play with one guy..dumb..ben was foolhardy trying to fit that ball in to a hole that wasn't..more dumb.. I'm still furious and hardly slept last night mulling my anger..

One thing he was wrong about...he predicted Tomlin would come out with the same zone D vs. the Pats. I don't think he was expecting the Steelers to come so close to winning.

I think we all held the belief they would do zone

The opening plays certainly were but they settled into the right mix sans the gronk plays

No turning back now at least some positive change was established against NE

Now to play a full non turtle game

There must be some real divisions with Ben and Haley with all the dumbfuckery at the end

Egos better get shelved fast and let Ben the Ben
The cadence to conservative in the 4th really threw off the equilibrium

The greater part of Boston talk radio that I caught today was focused on the Chinese fire drill at the end of the game....disbelief that Steelers, and particularly Ben, had "pissed their pants" at the end. Comment was that they (Pats fans) thought they would never see that from Ben. Over and over about how there was one receiver in the pattern, everyone else standing their picking their asses.

They're not wrong....and going forward, thinking about a return matchup with these douches, THAT is the most concerning. What the FUCK were they doing during the delay??

This is exactly where I'm at. The WTF were they doing during the delay is mindboggling as well as the turtle ball with handing off to Fitz on 2nd and 23 (I think 23yds) Complete WTF. Turtle ball and the lack of an answer around WTF during the delay are my two things I keep asking and it's infuriating as hell.
