    There goes the playoffs!

    Who's to blame.
    Tomlin- bad call to go for it
    OL looks terrible
    DL constant playing 10yds Cushing with C Brown
    Offense play calling is horrible very predictable
    Plus give SD credit they came to play

    The game is awful but Baltimore is in a close game and so is cincy. I guess we should have expected Ben to return and be a little rusty but this has been putrid.

    Now they decide to open up the playbook, maybe too late now. Chargers was selling out against the run all game yet the kept trying to run in early downs.

    Ben hasn't been the problem. He has saved 7-8 plays with his legs. Couldn't understand why the OL was so bad until I realized Legursky was back in.

    I still suspect we need to draft more OL.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    Yea I worded that wrong. I agree on him saving some plays. THe offense just hasn't been dialed up and really it's been the defense not getting them off the damn field in conjunction with trying to run the ball while they sold out to stop the run.

    Steelers were believing their "no one wants to play these guys" press. The Ravens just opened up an 8 point lead, the season could indeed be finished up.

    The defense has always been suspect against a dink & dunk offense...
    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...
