Ha! Good one....

 

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...

I'll take it  at this juncture.

 

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 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.

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

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.

He should. 

 

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

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 agree. 

 

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..

    • Pittman was an early second, almost 1st, as was Rock. So in reality, some decent draft capital on both WR and CB. As far as WRs go, a dominant X with speed is harder to find than a speed guy. There's a reason why Pittman and Claypool were in demand. You can get the take-the-top-off guys later. The guys that go 1st are typically the guys that are just plain good in all phases.  I wouldn't go that far saying it's built for non-stud pass catchers. Drafting guys like Pittman, Campbell, and signing Funch and Ebron don't jive with that line of thought.  Last year, having TY, Campbell, Funch, Ebron, Doyle, and Hines would be considered fantastic by most QBs had all stayed healthy. We just had some very bad luck, and also had a QB that was simply not that good. I think you're really forgetting about what Ballard "intended to have", and stuck on what happened because of injury and having a good QB retire. Autry is balling out, so don't forget about him. He's playing much better now that he's back at DE, which shouldn't surprise most. The O has to account for Buckner and both Autry and Houston. Mohammad played very well last game to, and did much better than just the run stuffer label most gave him. Not sure if that continues, but he's a decent depth guy. I've very happy though with our starting 4.  Burton is more slot than TE IMO. We don't run a lot of 2 TE sets anyway, so not a big deal. I'm good rolling with Doyle and MAC. Just need Doyle to get healthy. I'm most interested in who, besides Pascal, emerges at slot. Pascal is a "big-slot", and I want to see someone like Dulin or Hines emerge as the "traditional-slot". Don't be too surprised to see Hines line up in slot this week.    I wish we would have taken a flyer on Prince Tega Wanogho. Can't believe he dropped like he did after many were predicting early 2nd. Raw but full of potential. If he comes off the Eagles PS in a year or so and balls out I'll be highly irritated lol.    I see either LT or DE as our #1. AC has looked all that great thus far (65ish PFF), but I'm not sure we pull the trigger next year with another year on his contract. I think it'll be DE if we don't resign Houston. If we do resign him, it's a coin flip I'd guess.
    • Manning was healthy at the end of the season but was benched for Osweiller. I believer Manning was reinserted in the last game of the season at half time and then played the entire playoffs.   That being said, Brees does not look anywhere near as bad as Manning but he has lost a lot of speed off his throws and cannot push the ball down the field. A lot depends on how much Payton wants to play small ball or insert Hill more and try to get more chunk plays.
    • I think "pulled" was a too strong of a word. I meant more snaps for Hill. That is what Payton and Brees said before the season. Both talked about Brees splitting more time with Hill like 30 snaps or so. I would like to see that happen Sunday as Hill is electric and provides a nice change of pace from Brees.
    • I feel (or the majority) of these injuries would still have happened anyway, but would have occurred in OTA's or training camp. Thus noted but much less noticeable.
    • Oh my goodness.  Its not an either or thing.  Perennial playoff contenders have elite talent disbursed throughout the different spots on the field.  They can't just load up on the LOS.   We've seen the impact of having JAGs as ball handlers.  We've had a rotation of nobody's at the receiving position for years and nonversatile RBs who are only good at running between the tackles (for the most part)...spanning two GMs ...and Luck's entire NFL career.  Luck had to carry the O with no real help.    Nice to see we finally got the stud interior DL we haven't had for 10 years.  Now its on to other needed positions.
