    Why do our Steelers come out flat in the 1st Quarter of so many games?

    It seems to me that the Steelers come out flat and slow in many games. Ir certainly seems so this year, and it seems this has been the case over the past few years. Perhaps my perception is off. Tonight, I have to believe that the way we played so flat in the 1st quarter (actually most of the 1st half) cost us this crucial game tonight.

    Thank you, the Steelers gave away two drives tonight that the Ravens didn't even really have to defend, ridiculous. On the other hand, Ben was in complete control of the game and the offense, his play selection was on point, his reads were excellent, he did miss a few throws, but all in all he played a great game. Manny Sanders on the other hand, if he can hold on to any one of the three he dropped, there could have been a different outcome tonight.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    This year, we have been outscored over 2 to 1 in 1st quarters, 74 to 36. Seems to be a problem on both sides of the ball.

    Good article by Kovacevic.

    This needs to be Ben's team on offense, with coach as consultant and facilitator. This D needs a leader too.

    Outscored by over 2 to 1 in the 1st quarters this year.

    After scoring average of 31 points in the previous 4 games largely out of the no-huddle, we run a total of 5 plays called in the no-huddle in the 1st half. Zero points in the 1st half.

    Down 13 - 0 midway through the 3rd quarter last night. Even 1 score by the offense in the 1st half, and we win the game.
