    That's innovative play calling.
    I saw that as well. Very innovative. But I donít see any signs of Fitchner going anywhere ( unfortunately ).

    And I donít think Snell is the answer either. We played the worse team in the league. Letís not start thinking the running game is all of a sudden fixed.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    IMO, the biggest problem is Fichtner's playcalling. I understand trying to establish the run, but against 8 in the box which is all we are seeing...terrible.
    i agree the biggest problem is the OC. I keep hearing that we are getting a ton of different defensive looks (as to make excuses for the lack of execution)... but what im seeing is a bunch of loaded boxes and man coverage.

    Man coverage that for the most part, we can’t take advantage of.

    I think we need an upgrade at all the skill positions.

    I agree. We still aren't creating mismatches. I can't believe how the TEs have seemingly been ignored and they are usually a young QBs safety blanket

    Fichtner effing blows. His play calling puts marginal QBs in situations they can't win.

    Mind you- he did that same **** with Ben in. It's just that Ben has the ability to convert 3rd and long. Also- they'd go no-huddle a lot more with Ben- which takes ****tner's ****ty play calling out of the game to a degree.

    I'm sure every team wants this also.
    At some point you have to coach up what you got and put them in a position to succeed.
    Our skill positions are fine and our injuries aren't that big of a deal.
    We need Ben.

    ummm... ok... i'm not fishing through the thread, but we actually even discussed the game before, where duck came in and averaged more per pass than Mason EVEN AFTER after mason's long TD pass was in that game before he got his concussion.

    i'm kinda cracking up that you're NOW saying that you weren't denying that duck goes downfield more. he just didn't in that game.

    REALLY? c'mon man, you're better than that.
