    Really? Is "more dumber"? lol

    Kicking on 3rd is fundamental coaching. But then again, our team isn't playing sound fundamental football right now.

    A kick out of bounds ??? From who Shuisam ... lmao or out of bounds at the 40 ? Either thought is insane. He can't kick out the endzone when he tries.

    Tomlin played it right. He left no time on the clock and it worked. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts then everyday would be halloween

    Yeah... he played it right ..... Leaving himself no bailout in bad, wet weather on sloppy field conditions and kicking towards the open end of the stadium in a high stakes situation. Thats intelligent.

    Its very intelligent and it worked to perfection. The scenerio you are describing happens less than 10% of the time. Did you see the visual before the kick? Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Tomlin arm and arm. Ben loves Mike Tomlin. That means he is going nowhere. Ben hated Whisenhunt so Wiz didnt get the gig. Ben didnt get along with Cowher either and he subsequently retired. GET THE PICTURE NOW?

    It's a precaution. My goodness... Like I said, the Steelers have been playing such crisp football that obviously we don't need to take any precautions. <enter sarcasm>

    What does Ben have to do with this discussion? If you want to talk about how you think Ben is making head coaching personnel decisions, start a new topic. Yes, The picture is crystal clear.... Ben has the power to make HC personnel decisions (not Rooney) but he doesn't have the power to keep his buddy Bruce Arians around. <enter more sarcasm> Is this the twilight zone tonight?

    The reason you cant name the time is because it seldom happens. Perspective

    He is on the Steelers. What does Suisham have to do with this discussion? Ben likes Tomlin, those are the facts
