Thread: We didn't need that drama!!!!!!

  1. #1

    We didn't need that drama!!!!!!

    If we down the ball at the 1 with 1:28 seconds left and 2nd down...the play would last 3 seconds - 35 seconds = 50 seconds. Down the ball on 3rd down - another 38 seconds= 12 seconds left. Kick Chip shot FG and win the game. Why we ran the ball in the endzone with Bell baffles me????

    Anywho...We are STILL ALIVE!

    The only reason there was drama was because the steelers continue to mismanage the clock. The steelers get a 1st down on the one and the packers have one timeout and e Steeler don't take a knee three times and kick a field goal to win with less than 5 seconds on the clock. Just not good decision making and time management.

    And of course it was the very 1st question asked in the PC, and Tomlin says that wanted the TD and the points because---- You never know what might happen on a FG... in that weather- ball exchange, etc.. Hey Tomlin..... what about your extra point? You need that to go up 7, cause your ST could even just as easily give back a return for TD on that turf....

    His reasoning is just WRONG.

    If we took all that time off and kicked a FG with 12 seconds left, then we would have needed Shamarko Thomas to prevent a game winning kickoff return for a TD instead of a potential game tying kickoff return for a TD.

    Wrong reasoning and almost costly, fortunately green bay shot themselves in the foot a bunch of times today.

    Its still poor time management; the second bad decision was not Squibb kicking the kickoff and allowing the packers to set up a return. Unfortunately, these types of clock management mistakes are normal. It needs to get better.
