    Questionable 3rd Down Calls

    Started the game with 3rd and 6, but took the typical Ben Roethlisberger low % BS throw 25+ yards downfield. Not smart against a good team at home to open the game. It predictably failed as it usually does being a low % play.

    Next up - third and long. Ran a crossing route that would have been perfect for third and six. Picked up 8. LOL.

    Then we have 3rd and 1. Once again, Ben Roethlisberger or Tomlin or whoever refuses to use Ben's size to get the 1 yard through the obvious QB sneak call. Instead, they line up in shotgun and then do a hand-off. Another BS call that results in a failed drive.

    You don't beat quality opponents with these BS calls on third down. 2 out of 3 of these are habitual problems that never change year in and year out.

    That's a problem, but it doesn't negate that there's a lot of bad play-calling on our part

    I've been disappointed with this line, esp. Pouncey, for years that they cent get any push on third and short. How are Pouncey and De Castro probowlers when they cant ever get you one yard straight ahead?
