    Or c), willing to make changes...

    He made changes for Cincy, and more for Chicago...

    The offense needs to execute better...especially the QB...

    Turnovers and the inability to make a critical stop on defense, aka execution on offense and defense, doomed us last night. Until we fix both it will be a long season.

    Not quite time yet to start talking about the draft but if this continues it will be soon.
    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!

    Well, I believe the percentage of 0-3 teams that have made the playoffs is about 12%. If they don't find a way to beat the Vikings and go 0-4 I'm fairly certain the percentage goes to zero or close to it, the draft could be right around the corner my friend.

    Man, it's tough when you wait all off season for football and your team starts 0-3 and appears to have very little in the way of answers.

    Crash thanks for the suggestion pal. ESPN....Just got it up.

    1st drive of the game went like this:

    1st and 10 at PIT 20 F.Jones up the middle to PIT 31 for 11 yards (C.Conte).
    1st and 10 at PIT 31 B.Roethlisberger pass short middle to H.Miller to PIT 37 for 6 yards (Ja.Anderson).
    2nd and 4 at PIT 37 B.Roethlisberger sacked at PIT 28 for -9 yards (D.Williams). FUMBLES (D.Williams), touched at PIT 28, RECOVERED by CHI-

    One run two pass plays second of which led to a turnover.

    2nd Steeler drive
    1st and 10 at PIT 21 B.Roethlisberger pass incomplete deep right to H.Miller. Coverage by #55 Briggs.
    2nd and 10 at PIT 21 F.Jones up the middle to PIT 22 for 1 yard (L.Briggs; D.Williams).
    3rd and 9 at PIT 22 (Shotgun) B.Roethlisberger pass incomplete deep left to E.Sanders. Coverage by #33 Tillman.
    4th and 9 at PIT 22 (Punt formation) Z.Mesko punts 38 yards to CHI 40, Center-G.Warren, fair catch by D.Hester.

    Two incomplete passes that had some distance, 1 run

    3rd Steeler drive:
    1st and 10 at PIT 20 F.Jones right tackle to PIT 26 for 6 yards (M.Wright).
    2nd and 4 at PIT 26 B.Roethlisberger pass short left to A.Brown to PIT 44 for 18 yards (C.Tillman).
    1st and 10 at PIT 44 B.Roethlisberger pass short right to W.Johnson to PIT 49 for 5 yards (L.Briggs, S.McClellin).
    2nd and 5 at PIT 49 B.Roethlisberger sacked at PIT 40 for -9 yards (D.Williams).
    3rd and 14 at PIT 40 (Shotgun) B.Roethlisberger pass deep right to A.Brown to CHI 15 for 45 yards (C.Conte).
    1st and 10 at CHI 15 F.Jones right guard to CHI 7 for 8 yards (H.Melton).
    2nd and 2 at CHI 7 (No Huddle) B.Roethlisberger pass short left to E.Sanders to CHI 9 for -2 yards (C.Tillman).
    3rd and 4 at CHI 9 (Shotgun) B.Roethlisberger pass incomplete short middle to A.Brown.
    4th and 4 at CHI 9 (Field Goal formation) S.Suisham 27 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-G.Warren, Holder-Z.Mesko.

    2 runs 6 pass plays- included is deep completion to Brown

    Total of first 3 drives 11 pass plays (two of them sacks) 4 runs, several passes with good distance missed and a completed bomb.
    Passes were NOT all dink and dump types like Ben complained about last season.

    This is how the game STARTED my friend

    Outside of the very first drive of the Cincy game you saw THE EXACT SAME PATTERN. From the second drive of THAT GAME.

    WE KNOW from Ben's own mouth that HIS INPUT has been factored into the playcalling.

    The above shows it clearly.

    It aint just the "situation" as Crash says.

    The "dink and dunk" strategy of last year is no longer the focal point of this offense.

    Ben HAS in fact been "respected" which is why unlike LAST YEAR Ben isnt snipping at Haley in the same passive agressive way.



    We are doing what Ben LIKES to do.

    When you're right, CL, you're right...

    Haley made the necessary adjustments, so now the players, getting what they wanted, need to execute...

    Fixed that, you had an extra "right" in there.

    Let me add, Hey Crash, why are you whining about ALL THOSE DEEP THROWS TO Sanders and Cotchry (points I AGREED WITH YOU ON BTW) if I'm NOT right that we ARE IN FACT throwing deep with regularity?

    Dont blame Haley's "inflexible" style. He has changed to suit his QB.
    Dont believe me? Listen to Ben and watch the games.

    I'm sure Ben was just thrilled with one chance to make a play on their first trip in the red zone.

    You all got what you wanted: Ben put in his place and his buddy shown the door.

    8-11.
    I agree, Ben is classy that way, takes ownership for his play and contribution to loses.
    I really respect that about him. Fanboi types can learn alot from him.
    But last year, he expressed frustration with the playcalling.......this year not a peep.

    What is funny Crash is that WHEN YOU LISTEN TO BEN talk about HIS OWN play he sounds way more like me than he does you.
    That is because he evaluates HIMSELF honestly.
