    Regardless, going for the TD was the right call all day long. I can just see some the same people in this thread blasting Tomlin for going for 3 and something happened on the FG (as it did with the Packers chip shot earlier in the game) or Green Bay was able to get in range for a tying FG on a long return.

    Kicking it deep on the other hand? Not smart. With a long field and no timeouts, I sincerely doubt they would have been able to tie it up. They couldn't even tie it up on a 31 yard field. You want to scream at poor clock management, how about them only getting one play off in the last 28 seconds? Would suck to be a Packer fan at that moment.

    I can get the debate, but all of this criticism and vitriol is absurd.


    Well Flasteel... You are totally 110% WRONG. Correct thing to do was to run down the clock to under 5 seconds, kick the FG as time expires, Game over... YOU DO NOT EXTEND THE GAME LIKE TOMLIN DID. Sorry, you are just wrong in this. Luckily it worked out for us THIS time.

    They absolutely did not let us score. What were the Packers doing, acting? Does anyone really believe the Packer's defensive coordinator in the seldom used Thespian 5-3 set? Why on earth would they act out a play in front of their fans on the goal line? No one would do that. To what end? Why even risk a stubbed toe if you wanted the Steelers to score (as if ANY team in the NFL wants another team to score a tie-breaking go ahead touchdown with less than two minutes left). Basura!

    The Packers let them score the touchdown, the defensive linemen stand up and the linebackers don't even attack the line of scrimmage. It didn't look like a whole of effort to shed blocks either. They let him walk in, because they knew burning clock was not what they wanted to do only to have the Steelers kick a FG with nothing on the clock.

    If that's how you play goal line defense then its no wonder the Packers are struggling for a playoff spot.

    Roethlisberger was in shotgun. Three wide receivers.

    So they just pretended to try? It's too demented to believe. "Pssst...just pretend to play. We don't want them to think we're not trying, because then.......uhhh......"

    Why not just part like the Red Sea as soon as the ball was snapped? Hell, even before it was snapped. Just waive the Steelers in and save another second or two.

    Look at the tape before you start saying things like the d-linemen stood up and the backers didn't attack the line of scrimmage. Those things simply did not happen. One guy (#57) took a false step outside, which basically took him out of the play and he did make a half-hearted effort, because it was obviously too late.

    You guys are trying to justify your own beliefs by stating it was something the Packers were facilitating. Every player in the box looked like they were putting forward an effort to stop the play. Do you think they only wen't 75% full speed in some half-assed attempt to maybe let them score?

    Ridiculous.

    We couldn't have run out the clock...that's the whole point. The kickoff is happening, even if we bleed every possible second that we can off the clock. If they do get a big return, they can win it, if i goes to the house, or have a chance to tie it, if the kickoff was like it actually wound up being.

    For you or anyone else to sit there and say scoring the TD was the wrong call is like I stated previously...laughable. You are guaranteed not to lose that game in regulation, no matter what kooky stuff happens.

    Good call and it worked...despite the bad call to not squib it.

    I dfid rewatch the tape and if you would coach any team to play goal line defense the way the Packers did then your team is giving up a lot of points on goal to go situations. The linemen were basically in the endzone form the snap, the hole was huge and Bell waltzed in untouched. Point out one player that actually put forth any effort to get off of his block.

    There's no way they were trying to make a play and allow the Steelers to burn 40 more seconds of the clock. They had one choice and took it and then almost converted it into t a tie and overtime, except they shot themselves in the foot with the penalty.

    Here's the TD. Even the announcers are noting that the guys on the line aren't firing off, and most of them just stand up. I'm not sure why this is so ridiculous when it's a good strategy. If GB doesn't botch their own clock management and Flynn doesn't miss Nelson in the end zone, it would have actually worked.

    If, if, if....

    we freakin won. The percentages probably favored a FG with little time left but if he returns it, if we botch the snap, if we get it blocked, if he misses it, if, if, if.....

    Its easy to say we shoulda after we watched it play out but crazier things have happened in Steeler games.

    Whatever choice Tomlin made would probably result in a crazy play by GB because its been that type of year.

    I'm thankful to spend a few more days with a shot at the playoffs.
