    The redzone offense needs to improve. Settling for FG's was one of the reasons they lost in Denver last year after controlling much of the game.....the story rewrote itself last night.

    Everyone wants to criticize, but the challenge last night was a brilliant move by Tomlin. Manning just ran the defense ragged with the no huddle and I believe that the challenge gave us more time than a normal time out for the defense to try to get their act together on the goal line. Unfortunately the defense had no answers even after the extended break.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I am not sure i would call it a brilliant call...but it definitely did not cost us the game....

    Our inability to score TDs instead of FGs and our inability to stop the no-huddle offense cost us the game....The defense is definitely concerning after seeing that performance.

    11-5, we get our ish together and do just fine. It was one bad game people.

    I thought that the challenge was a good move...it enabled the defense to get a breather and for the Steelers to substitute personnel...

    The D just set up too quickly and allowed Manning to audible...

    Yeah, the red zone offense was quite disappointing. Really should have had points with Miller on the first trip.

    Champ made a nice breakup of the one slant to Brown; I would have loved to see another Cedrick Wilsonesque fake on Bailey with the hard pump on the fake slant and then the corner, but it wasn't to be.

    Tomlin said it's hard to get info quick on the road when it comes to challenges... he made the right call.

    nah... the offense was fine.. the pass was yuck on 3rd down. Sometimes Ben can be a little lazy with passes in the endzone. 6-7 throwing to Heath and he throws a shallow pass? Frustrating....

    Dizz...that was a fluke play, hardly something to be judging the quality of the defense for the rest of the season. Take away that one play & Manning's numbers are somewhat pedestrian. Now that said, like you I'm concerned that the D wasn't able to play to their pedigree but it's only the first game & the team wasn't at full strength, so let see how things look after a couple of more are in the books.

    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...

    I think you have to challenge it given how "bang, bang" it was. Yes he lost, but the upside was that a fumble out of the end-zone by the offense is a turnover & we have the ball at the 20...had to chance it. I have a bigger problem with the Tamme TD...
