Don't disagree that it wasn't perhaps needed, he just got unlucky that the 3rd tackler pulls him down into his path to make it look worse than it really was. Tacky call, but hey ho, don't give the refs chance to throw the flag and all that. They should have blown forward progress well before.

 

Agree...don't tempt the poor officiating. I thought Leonard did that on the previous play when it looked like he did the ol' "forearm to the head on the sliding QB" move...which I have seen flagged a lot. But it's his play style...he's fast and physical...and sometimes you get whistled.

 

But that call was actually consistent with the logic on the Watson call last week...because the TE was essentially down and therefore it was late contact/unnecessary roughness/leading with helmet...whatever they actually called.

If that was trash so was then hit by Wyatt on Hoyer.

What? Dude came up from behind and smoked him in the back. Waaaaay after the ball was gone. No way to compare. Leonard makes contact at or around the whistle and receiver is still moving under his own power

It should be at least 20-3 or 24-3. P6 that was a 10 or 14 point swing, and and a missed XP.

 

Aside from the INT, Hoyer has played very well. The big dig on him is INTs (career 48-30) but he does throw with good anticipation and leads a WR well. That pop swing pass was nice and that TD to Pascal was a perfect pass over defenders that only Pascal could get too.

 

It's going to be interesting if Hoyer starts the second half. He's been doing a good job of finding open receivers and spreading it around well. 

 

Come on Adam, get those demons out!

You might want to rewatch the play... Leonard made helmet contact as McDonald was falling backwards.  Incidental or not that's going to be a penalty period.  Leonard should have been better

And how many times have we seen players slip a tackle? JB with Von Miller  last week.

Brissett doesn't throw that pick six. I'm not so sure he throws the td to doyle either. Being that the steelers are number 2 in takeaways we need to protect the ball if we want to win

Hoyers pick six was similar to the one brisset threw to tyrann mathieu

If Brissett's mobility is compromised which it probably is, should just roll with Hoyer.

 

Seems unnecessary to put him back out there...if there's a chance to make it worse. That seems to backfire quite often.

 

Right now, the PIT defense doesn't appear to have an answer for Reich's play calls. Just let Hoyer run the offense.

Sounds like unless we're behind he's not going back in.
