Why on earth do the Steelers not fake the run and pass on 1st down!!!
or at least do half run and half pass....other teams do it with ease...
They fake the run and just throw an easy pass for TD to the corner...

Everyone on earth knows your going to run and the browns already showed
they could stop Mendenhall..just because, you want to run up the middle
doesn't mean you can!!

Stop being predictable in the red zone!!!!

Sounds like they didn't want an immobile Ben to get killed if the Browns sold out for the run.

exactly. snarky is correct. we would have had to go shotgun to pass there or ben would have been slaughtered.

I didn't necessairly have a problem with running it 4 times. But we did NOTHING creative. It was "impose your will" time. Obviously, we can't impose our will on anyone in this kind of situation. It called for some kind of creative play calling. Making it obvious that Mendenhall was coming right up the middle all 4 times favored the Stains.

A first round stud like Mend shouldn't get blown up like that on 2nd down. He ran well but at the GL he needs to get lower.
