    Is that a record? Has it ever been done before? Harbaugh definitely stuck it to our organization right then and there.

    I would love for reporters to ask about that to both coaches but I won't hold my breath.

    Who cares? It wasn’t a risk. Duck would not be able to lead an 11 yard TD drive.

    I care. It was a slap in the face to MT who probably deserved it from years ago on the Jacoby Jones punt return.

    They knew they wouldn't score anyway. At best a FG.

    And even if, it didn't matter anyway. It was a preseason game for them.

    That’s just being out coached.

    Somehow Paxton never saw the field... what a joke.

    The Ravens would’ve never made that call in a meaningful game. I don’t blame them for doing it today. Nothing to lose for them there.

    I found that call to be interesting. The Ravens had the game in control. I think that was Harbaugh saying F you Tomlin and I am not considered about future years and your team.

    Anyone who thinks Harbaugh wasn’t trying to humiliate Tomlin and the Steelers is missing the point. Now let’s see how Tomlin and the Steelers respond next year and beyond. If I was Tomlin this call and this game would bother me for years.

    Seriously, that's a call made with nothing to lose. In week X with something to play for that call isn't made.

    I put zero stock into it.

    It would bother a real coach who had some pride but old Mikey is just drawing a check. I’m sure he has no clue his face was rubbed in a big pile of dog crap. Dude is lost.

    The fake punt, the throwing deep with a minute to play. RG3 mugging and clowning during the game and the kicker doing a fairy dance after a routine FG makes me hate this team more than the Patriots.

    I hate to say this, but if he was coaching for another organization. He would been canned. Not because of Blount, or AB, or Bell ... but, for his inability to build, coach and develop a championship team. And, win a championship with them

    Anytime, any game, any situation where Harbaugh can do a fake punt, field goal, 4th and 1 ......whatever.....Be Ready!

    Steelers weren’t ready.


    Heck it should have been an all out punt block.

    If this game meant somethig to Bal, they probably don't do the fake punt. But if it blew up in their face, sowhat? Stillers get the ball at the 12, dare the off to score. If they do, we still got home field. If they don't ,the D is fired up. If we succeed,it breaks the steelers back. And it more/less did

    What does Tomlin have to do with Bell leaving? Bell wanted too much money, that's a organizational decision probably made by Colbert and Art II.

    It's the Steelers, Hairball's nemesis. Showing Popcorn his coaching pedigree while laughing at our devotion to special teams.

    Or that tells you what Paxton has shown in practice, being worse that MR and Duck.

    More teams have been utilizing analytics this season and the stats have been saying go for it on fourth down or run a fake punt and stuff

    Paxton would have won the game. How do I know? Easy! Players that didn't play would always be great, if only they played. At worst , they'd be better than schmucks that actually played.
