    My problem was with the 3rd down call. This football teams pathological opposition to the QB sneak continues to be a problem. The run out of shotgun on 3rd and 1 is nothing short of retarded.

    Two Things to Fix Going Forward

    Captain Obvious here, but this team has shown a continued problem with WR's dropping balls and ball security generally. These almost cost the game today and have cost us others. Time to get it...

    Correct. This is why the Roethlisberger-led offense that refused QB sneaks on 3rd and 1 and frustratingly aired it out far down field regularly on 3rd and short hung our defense out to dry against...

    But we got a high quality player who is already really helping the team. Ever hear the phrase 1 in the hand is worth 2 in the bush? Goofy and old school, but the point is a good one. Better to...

    Ben has been a great QB for this team and the reality is that we are likely to miss him for a long time to come if he has actually taken his last snap.

    That said, I hope he retires. With Bell and...

    Questionable 3rd Down Calls

    Started the game with 3rd and 6, but took the typical Ben Roethlisberger low % BS throw 25+ yards downfield. Not smart against a good team at home to open the game. It predictably failed as it...

    Sugar, I don't follow other teams all that closely, but I don't recall Hernandez pulling stunts like AB does. I don't recall Gronk being a problem either. I wiki'd Hernandez to see what sort of...

    Not calling for Tomlin's job, but the fact that he allowed the situation to get to this point is problematic. The fact that Brown treats it like a joke - wearing the absurd fur coat - and now...

    Exactly. This team has a major leadership deficit from the top down. Rooneys do nothing to correct Tomlin, even to the point of allowing him to make replay and clock management decisions based on...

    Irrelevant. He flew a helicopter into camp. He throws tantrums on the sideline. Stop deliberating missing the point.

    Antonio Brown has been allowed to act like a clown for years now. He 100% has been coddled and allowed to act "above the team" by both Tomlin and the Rooneys.

    Tomlin's inability to understand certain aspects of the game is well documented. Time management is at the top of the list, as is challenges.

    The real question is not so much why Tomlin cannot...

    I wouldn't put it past number 7. Whatever the reason for this team's systematic refusal to sneak when it is the thing to do, Tomlin or the Rooneys, if necessary, should put a stop to it.
