    Venting

    Season is over, but who knows maybe we win 9 in a row and finish 11-5
    Questions i have to ask
    -where are the back shoulder throws we see other QB's throw?
    -where are the RB screen plays?
    -why don't we ever run off tackle?
    -why don't we ever run any counters?
    -why don't we see any bunch formations?
    -why don't we run any quick slants?
    -when was the last time you saw Ben throw an out to a WR?
    -why don't we see any seam routes ran by Heath?
    -why is Sanders the only WR that goes deep?
    -why can't Ben ever hit a receiver in stride w/o them having to make a diving catch?
    -why does Ben refuse to throw to his check down?
    -why does our O-line continuously get hurt?
    -why is Paulson still on this team?
    -why don't we see Moye running a deep route and out jumping a DB?
    -why are Jones and Dwyer returning kicks?
    -why was Mesko still on this team after 6 games?
    -why is Ziggy Hood still allowed to sniff the field?(see McFadden TD run)
    -why is Ryan Clark still a starter?
    -why is Jarvis Jones struggling?
    -why is Woodley making so much $$$$$$?
    I have given up for the first time in as long as i can remember.
    It seems like Steeler management has also....

    I miss the bunch formations

    we had a lot of success with it and it goes away

    that's a good list

    Amazing. I didn't come across one question, where I didn't ask myself, "Yeah... why?" Maybe except a minor disagreement on the Moye one. Moye is a local/camp legend for some reason. To me, he's an angular guy, who played OK in preseason and happened to make a TD grab, who people seem to vastly overrate. I don't get it.

    Did Moyer go to Penn State? If so... there is your answer.

    Sorry Pittpete I have no answers to these questions but I applaud the effort. This is a season to vent.

    It's the answer to "why does our O-line continuously get hurt?" I'm really the most interested in, I can sort of make up reasonable-sounding answers to the others.

    I have a theory it's because their skill level is pretty low. Low skill set >> poor mechanics >> injury.

    Does that sound reasonable?


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

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
