    If Sanders catches that 3rd down pass... and ST's doesn't do what they always do... this game would have been a bigger blowout.

    We had the game by halftime...I'm not a fan of putting up 40 points just cause we can...

    save some of those points for next week.

    And if the Redskins receivers hadn't dropped 11 passes this could have been much closer or even worse. Their receivers were the best defense for us on the field. If you can score 40 then you go out and score 40.
    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!

    Disagree completely.

    An OC change was needed because quite frankly BA was not a good coordinator and the offensive development was completely stymied under his watch. It wasn't a case of needing a change for change sake. BA's inability to make in-game adjustments was notorious. He relied on Ben's talent to drive the offense, rather than building gameplans that made sense for the opponent. Why did BA continue to let Ben throw the long ball when we all have been screaming that dump-offs are available on almost every play?
    I get the sense that when the O struggles this season, Haley at least as some ideas on plays to get things moving again. Seems under BA, if Ben had no magic that day, the Steelers were sunk. While the has struggled to put points on the board, you can't say that they have been completely snuffed in any games this season.

    but if you can't score 40 and 27 will win the game... don't. try to score 40... bad things happen when you try to run up the score. This isn't college.

    That is the question. We don't know in advance so in this day and age you have to keep scoring. Look at the Dallas/Giants game from this week. The wonderful Giant 4-3 defense had a 4th quarter collapse and were lucky they didn't lose.

    You need to score, score and score some more.

    The steelers still have one of the best defenses in the league but they aren't dominant. We have to depend on the offense to win games ... not on the defense to prevent the other team from scoring.
