Tomlin: when we get the ball back, i'm not letting that buffoon call plays...
Ben: FINALLY, he manned up and put this OC on the back burner. I have to give him a lot of credit for that
I'm not at all advocating against having a strong running game. Far from it. I think a powerful running game is a great thing. But Cowher's teams were built 100% around the run and a QB who was relied on to not make any mistakes (Marty Ball). This team certainly isn't built that way, and I'm not even sure you can do that in today's NFL.
I just loved seeing them going for it instead of 3 and out and punt it deep to rely on the defense. We've seen that backfire too many times.
