Is the O-Line even trying to block?

This is why we need to run more than we pass where we can.

They're tired from being on the field so long.

 

 

 

Oh, wait...

We need a D player to step up and make a drive wrecking play here.

Giving up a score here would be bad

 

Especially a TD, FG tolerable.  I'll take iot.

FG is almost a given at this point (at minimum).

I wonder who our QC coach in the booth is?  It's his job to keep Chud from getting predictable (by feeding him real time info in the second half on down and distance) based upon his first half calls...

Would have been nice to keep them off the board entirely and go to halftime with a two-score lead, but yeah, I'll definitely take it.  I was expecting this game to be an outright disaster.

I wonder if Pagano will get credit, should they win...

 

He should. 

 

This would be a great win for Pagano, and the coaching staff.

I think the Steelers are going to put it in Big Bens hands second half. Probably throw a lot more and get the ball to Bell in space. We got to get more points on the board. Hopefully we can get some more drives going and possess the ball.

If they win, by all means. If they collapse and loose like they have many other times this year in the 2nd half, then he bears that responsibility too

I agree.

Steelers showed some in-game adjustments already.  We have to counter.

I agree.  Great game plan and execution on both sides of the ball.

Require cleaning up the right side of the O with those procedure calls, but they had a game plan and it is working to near perfection.

We get pass happy, and with the lead, it's inexcusable.

Not a fan of the kneel down there. Certainly I would call a safe play, but least run something.

 

Disagree. 

 

Too much risk, and not enough reward. 

 

I was hoping we would go into halftime with a happy touchdown lead.

We get the ball to start the half. A long sustained drive that ends in a TD, is my dream!

I agree with the first comment about the knee. Classic Pagano.  Call in your hands, time outs, time to go get another score and put an exclamation point on the half.  Nope.  Drives me crazy.   Plus, if ypu’re playing scared (afraid of the turnover), just resign.  Go get a FG, then star the next half with a TD and that’s two more scores.  Pagano plays scared.

30 seconds left. No, you do not play with fire. You have the lead. Do not risk a turnover. period.

I don't think we have had a great first drive of the second half all year.

It puts the pressure on the QB and O-line pass blocking. I'd avoid that too..
