I said it early in the 3rd that all Ben had to do was throw deep and a flag would get thrown. Too obvious to me, if a REF is going to alter a game, please do a better job. I have watched this game for

I still think we beat Jacks and the Bills beat the Dolphins so we get in but does it matter? You play Pitt or KC the REFS will give them every call.

Literally giving them 6-7yd a pop. Also where the hell was the DL? Pathetic performance in the second half.

That's just how our defense is, they're terrific one half and suck the other. I don't know if it was the play calling or the players but I sure as hell am not gonna find out cause I'm not rewatching this one. The most pathetic stat line was that they ran the ball like 15 times and passed it 40. That is beyond insufferable. How do you lose to that... UGHHHH

No rush of any kind. Big Ben just playing catch.

 

Why is this shocking to you or anyone who has watched this team? You should have known it was coming. They are one half wonders, all year long. You just never know which half it will be but definitely ain’t getting 4 quarters from this team on offense or defense. It’s pretty well documented in their play over time. FR isn’t the leader this team now needs. It’s time to move on from him like we did back with diddly-poo Mora.

It's always a coaching issue if you can't play 4 quarters.

I have watched this game for 45 years so I am some dumb dumb when something is obvious. The non-calls were just as bad on offensive PI that would've been a pick 6, just cute.

Speaking about PI it’s so frustrating when they call all these soft calls on us. Yet that one on the end could’ve easily been called.

We need a corner. I’ve been saying it since the start of the season. Was called a fool once the defense wasn’t playing against a good QB. We had a weak schedule until after the bye week. The weakness on 3rd down has always been there. If we had a CB you’d see more creativity

Prevent defense, once again prevents a win... Pitt made adjustments and came and got Rivers.. Ebrflus changed nothing,  once Pitt adjusted on offense.. Eber never changed and let Ben pick the D apart

I wasn't shocked in the least.

The pass D was busy getting penalties and getting burned. The Colts base coverage is essentially a prevent D anyways so it’s easy to shred with the short passing game.

Yup. We bet everything on Rock Ya-Sin and Xavier Rhodes because a “Tampa-2 doesn’t need good corners”. And I don’t want to here another word about the “development “ of Ya Sin. . Got burned by Johnson bad and that flipped the momentum.

Yeah, real weak call on Moore, and mind boggling no call on the potential pick 6. Not thrilled with the one on Glow that costs the Colts more points at the end of the 1st half, but the way the 4th quarter was going, Steelers may have still won.

If we do not get turnovers we do not win

Rock needs to get his head around a second sooner. I’m sure the coaches told him this. I’m giving him another season.  The PI’s on him today are highly questionable. Again the only person I can blame for today loss is Reich.

Yeah that was huge when Hines had the huge play, forgot about that one. Glow did very little and that could've been 28-7 at the half. That was pretty bogus.

That's absolutely right, this team doesn't have much consistently good players that just do their job well every play and just has really good play makers that will make a play and win the game because they'd been sucking the whole game.

Wasn't that pass interference on TY when he fell.

 No the loss is definitely on Reich and his playcalling. I’m just pointing out the issues with the pass D. Rock has been a huge issue. We let Desir go and handed Rock a starting job and he’s been a disappointment up to this point. When he’s not getting penalties he’s getting burnt. Burned by Tee Higgins, Valdez-Scantling, Cory Davis, Dionte Johnson, the list goes on.

He’s been playing against some good WR’s. He has had some good plays. We can’t take that from him at all

If that would've been Ju Ju with the game on the line, PI automatically. Ju Ju hasn't accomplished near what TY has in his career but because it is Pitt, it would've been a PI. I am convinced of that. Look I hate blaming the REFS, looks like I am whining but when the crap is obvious, time for me to speak up. If I was a coach I would say it in the post game and take the fine. Frank won't, he is too nice lmao . I am nice but not that nice when I think something is nonsense. The REFS in the 2005/2006 SB single handed gave the Steelers that SB vs Seattle. Anyone can google it and see how many people think that. They also cheated us in the 1995 Title Game, Stewart goes out of bounds comes back in and catches a TD. Bogus crap and obvious. The REFS are in love with the Steelers, maybe they get free steak dinners in Pittsburgh and massages from beautiful ladies before big games. Puzzles me but I always know when playing that team it is vs them and the REFS. Nobody will convince me otherwise. I have seen this for years is why.

I'd like to see us bring in a different coach . In the meantime I wish Frank would get hand over the play calling duties to the OC. I hear Jim harbaugh might be available......

With a 17 pt lead it wasn’t a bad decision. The issue is the offense melted down because Reich doesn’t understand situational football.

Just say Reich sucks and we choked, it will save you a lot of time lmao . No other factors were involved :sarcasm:. Just say Miami will spank Buffalo and we will miss the playoffs. I have you covered for tonight :thmup:

As far as the offense goes missing are two tackles hurt us in this game. How many times was Rivers sacked at least 5 and was pressured many times which caused some bad throws. I think at full strength this would have been a different game.

Depends on who will be #2 next week I think bills will get it so we would face the steelers again if we're healthy we can beat them

I agree with nearly every comment on this thread. This team makes me sick to my stomach nearly every week. What works well in one half we totally abandon in the second half or vice versa. Can't figure this team out, we are a decent team but I want a team with a put them away mentality. You should never lose when up 24-7.....NEVER!!!

    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
    • I am a little confused?  So you are advocating a less talented edge at 21 than more talented OT?  Or am I just reading this incorrectly?  Because I believe the difference in OT quality and Edge quality at 21 clearly favors the OT.
    • I actually like the idea of trading back into the top of the 2nd and at least getting a 3rd rd pick that would not be a compensatory pick.  IF we wanted to move Q to LT Meinerz would be an ideal choice to pull it off.  That said picking at the top of the 2nd could still have Eichenberg and Little still available to mention a few LT’s.  I would rather go that route still taking a LT then take WR or CB with our 2nd and we have a nice 3rd rd pick to boot.  Then we could move up higher in the 2nd if we want as well.
