    On Higgins; "They Schemed Him Open"

    So says CB Wallace.

    Gee, I wonder what that would look like on the Steelers offense.

    I don’t understand why you would scheme when you can just tell your players to execute.
    Update:
    In the last decade:
    25% of the league has won a super bowl. The steelers are not one of them.
    19 teams have as many or more playoff wins as the steelers.
    25 teams have won at least one playoff game, none have a worse playoff win percentage than the steelers.

    You guys must be joking, plays are drawn out on paper with a crayon and they are told to execute it.

    What is a "scheme"?

    It has been awhile. I can understand if it is hard to recall.

    But going through the archives I think I found an example showing a defense that was clearly confused by our "scheme".

    (Not trying to save Canada or anything, the offense is laughably bad, but
    just demonstrating that we don't even recognize what we say never ever happens when it is right under our nose.)

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    TCFCLTC-
    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher

    Hahahahahahaha
    From the 2010-2021 season, (A 12year 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. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 5 years.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2021 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    maybe then he could actually pass for more than 200 yds and not get intercepted twice while leading his team to scoring only 3 points in yet another loss. Lamar Jackson pretty much has made Baker his bitch.

    nice call on Mayfield there Steel Maniac, it's definitely time to shut your piehole.

    gloat gloat gloat

    Boom.............

    Didn't click the link but I know exactly what play it's referring to. Problem is it was one play out of about 60. That's not gonna cut it in the NFL. Higgins was repeatedly open all night so either the Steelers defenders and coaches were morons in not figuring out what was going on or CIN schemed every play.

    The flea flicker by Canada after the long completion to Pickens was just so aggregious I can't believe Tomlin didn't fire him right over the mic after the call. Why not just a simple PA pass if you want to catch them off guard? Easier to execute and a higher probability of success. Talk about destroying a young QB's confidence.

    Canada the QB killer is his new meme.

    Scheme? Looks like they just let Higgins him beat his man.

    Pitch and catch all night.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    He was wide open on this play.
