why not throw a couple bombs at the end of regulation and hope for a PI call to put us in FG range to win it in regulation?
seeing that PI are handed out like candy on halloween in the nfl (http://www.planetsteelers.com/forums/#) these days, it was a gamble with little to no risk.

dallas had already burned all of their timeouts and had conceeded regulation by not attempting a 61 yd fg or going for it. they opted to punt and pin us deep and hope their defense could hold us.
even if dallas would have picked off opne of those bombs, they would have taken a knee to get to overtime.

tomlin couldnt count on his defense in overtime seeing that #35 (and everyone else)was absolutely getting abused. what was he banking (http://www.planetsteelers.com/forums/#) on, that we win the coin toss?

this jackass cant think his way out of a wet paper bag

Because when on the road, you go with the tie and try and win it in OT. I have no problems with what they did at the end of the 4th...

I agree though, that Tomlin has made mistakes in mis managing games, however, I have no problem with going to OT in that scenario on our own 20 yd line....

Some just criticize for no reason, did you see the 40yd defense Dallas was playing... You have a better chance at an int than interference!

Mr. Pitt, you might think its rediculous, but that's what they do. Always have. All coaches do that. Well, maybe not all, but most do.


Yea, refs won't call PI on those last plays at end of game... Have a better chance of a TO there...

No, there is actually a reason and the OP states the reasoning. Dallas had no timeouts so even if they pick a pass off heaved 50 yards downfield they would have had to heave it the same way. Taking a knee is just giving away a play.

Disagree. Go to TO. Throw a pick and they run it back with time left.... LOL, sort of sounds familiar....

Yeah, as soon as they attempt a bomb and a sack/strip fumble or INT happens that gets the opposition into FG range then Tomlin would be called an idiot. This post just proves that coaches will never win regardless of the decisions they make unless the team wins.

Why can't fans place the blame on where it really belongs, the players? The defense came out and made a big stop, Brown fumbled and returned momentum to the Cowboys.

The defense came out and made a huge stop to force OT after special teams gave up big return, Ben proceeded to give Dallas the win.

The Dallas game was loss in crunch time due to turnovers. To bad the message board gurus can't grasp that concept and see it as clear as crystal.

Tomlin deserves criticism for some of the things he does but taking a knee to force overtime isn't one of them.

I'm not debating the players lost the game, simply stating I don't like just taking a knee with time left on the clock.

I have zero problem with taking a knee in that situation.

our OL had been manhandled on the previous series.

some of you guys are reaching on this one.

Because the series before Ben was sacked on 2 straight plays.
He drops back, gets plastered and Dallas recovers the fumble...
Thats why.

lets say you were a dallas fan watching this game. in this situation would you like to see:

A) the steelers take a knee and go into overtime with timeouts left
B) the steelers take a couple shots down the field where they could possibly complete a pass or get a PI call(with timeouts left) that would put them in FG range to win OR possibly throw an int. that the cowboys could return 75+ yards for the TD

It must be opposite day. This is exactly backwards.

On the road, you try to win it in regulation. At home, go into OT with the home field advantage.

If you haven't seen our OL allow a three-man rush to get immediate pressure on Ben before, you must not watch many Steeler games.

How will it happen when they have 2 elite rushers like Ware and Spencer, at least one of whom will be matched against Kelvin Beachum?

Run all 3 guys between DD and Beachum. The entire line will stand like statues and watch the 3 guys hit Ben.

How will 3 guys beat our OL? All you have to do is line up 2 on Decastro's side and watch...
