    I am all for 'trick' plays. However, the wildcat to me is nothing that is tricky and for the most part just wastes downs. It was a fad that some teams used a few years ago, and I never liked it. Not in the nfl. Again, its my opinion. But now you hardly ever see it in the NFL anymore. I wonder why.

    I also disagree with your comment about we are not good enough to line up and beat someone. We did yesterday. Team had well over 130 yds rushing. Not too bad.

    The Steelers are 31st in the league in red zone TD scoring percentage. They were 12th in the NFL last season. Ben's best season was under Whiz when they were 7th, scoring red zone TDs almost 2 out of every 3 attempts in 2005. It's been a slow decline since.

    I liked how the Steelers pulled out the wildcat to throw in a couple wrinkles. It wouldn't be something that will become a significant part of the O.

    Funny stuff. Fire LeBeau...he couldn't hold the other team to minus 7!

    After a miserable September, we've started out October by stringing together a couple of wins, but people are complaining that they weren't BLOWOUT WINS!!!

    After a miserable September, we've actually managed to come out of the bye and start out October by stringing together a couple of wins, but people are complaining that they weren't BLOWOUT WINS!!! Wow...

    By, "I would have liked to see Ben go deep.", I THINK he jokingly meant that he would've liked to have seen Ben go deep as a RECEIVER !

    I liked that they threw the wildcat into the mix as a suprise. But I agree with Big Ben that we shouldn't do it often. Ok on occassion to keep the defense guessing but it also wastes an opportunity for Ben to do something. Now that teams have seen it, it won't be such a suprise.

    nah... it's a nice wrinkle IMO. I' not a fan of it but Bell is the perfect RB for the Wildcat..

    That's what I'm saying. The Wildcat isn't going to revolutionize our O, or even give us huge plays. It is a wrinkle... and it is a sign that the coaching staff is adopting a win-by-any-means mentality, which I like.
