    No injury risk in that.

    I thought he landed a bit more awkwardly than he hoped, on the flat of his back, rather than rolling. For a brief moment I thought he might have hurt himself.

    But back to the title of this thread ... was Flippy in the end zone???


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

Stop pretending to coach and provide leadership and actually do it. This petty micro-management BS aggravates me.
    I think that is pessimistic. Our most recent game was a success so that is the most recent data we have to go on and therefore carries the most weight. If the players responded and won a game, then by all means makes more rules so we win more games.

    I think he should do it after every first down.

    I'd say flip *after* you score the dang TD. Flipping on your way in is a sure fire way of losing the ball at the last second and handing the opponents a touchback instead of getting a TD.

    Well then how about flipping when somebody else on the team scores? Or is it all about him?

    IMO, act like you've been there before, and leave the flipping to the cheerleaders (of which we have none, for a good reason).
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    Oh please. You can't just ignore 4 straight losses b/c they beat a less than average team with a rookie QB who's been a turnover machine. And you certainly can't ignore that embarrassing loss to the crappy Vikings. You also can't ignore the inability to score TDs or apply pressure on the opposing QB. Let's try to win a second game before we decide the issues are in the rear view mirror.

    I stand by what I said - activity does not equal production. Do some real coaching. Coach up some players to make them play better. Be a leader of men. But don't ban ping-pong and act as if you are somehow leading on a level of Winston Churchill or FDR.

    They just lost a tackle, one they signed out of pure desperation with their current o-line situation, and to backfill they signed another TE that adds zero to this roster. Not leadership in the least. It's the exact opposite - pathetic.

    the thing that makes this so bad for me is the dramatic pause before he lets go of the ball....its a first down for cryin out lucy. hate to tell you, but theres a couple hundred a weekend. I like the emotion but maybe it can be better served in other ways imo
