    if we're ranked #1 in rushing defense

    why the hell do you need 9 men in the box to stop it?

    we are not #1 in rush defense. I saw that CBS posted that too, and it was not the only fact they had wrong. You'd think with a national stage they could do a little better than that.

    I would say it was the wrong call by the defense given the new OT rules, whether it was Troy, Mundy, or LeBeau.

    Secondary was brutal today. No way would I have thought that we lose after putting up 23 points.

    The O can take their share of the blame, but this one was lost in the secondary IMO.

    I don't understand why we had to commit so many defenders to the run. I don't care if we are #1 or number #5 there is no reason for DB's to get burnt like that because they are peaking in the backfield

    stay the eff back and come in once you see the RB has the ball.

    let them have a 4 yard run game. prevent the damn big play

    Forgive me for asking, but why did the game end after that play...I thought the point of the rules were that both teams were supposed to get a possession?
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    if its only a FG they get.

    1st team to score a TD bascially or if they both kick a FG with their 1st possesions...the next score

    Given that this was the first game ever to use these rules you gotta wonder if old habits die hard.

    Sometimes you outthink yourself.

    It was definitely bad all day...it seemed that the Was so fearful of the run they never adjusted to cover the pass.

    What is sad is I bet the Pats do a much better job of shutting this down and regardless of how I feel now...I think the steeler D is far superior to the Pats.

    That's why I say it's scheme. this one is on the coaches IMHO.

    1. Did Tomlin/Lebeau know the rules?

    2. I suspect it was Mundy's fault given the way Ike played the receiver and gave him the inside but there was no one to help.
