    It’s stupid that they wait till the last game to do it. He’s already cost them games and more than likely the playoffs.

    Matt McCrane's numbers are not good. 5 of 9 on field goals. :facepalm:

    This is very strange. Did he get hurt in practice?

    Who the heck is Matt Mccrane?

    I guess maybe they are preparing as if they will make the playoffs just don't know why they waited so long.

    Better not find out that Bos has been playing hurt all year. Seems more likely that it's just some mystery injury to get him on IR.

    McCrane has converted on five-of-nine field goal attempts and all five extra points this year.

    Damn, not much better than what we have. I guess he’s made all of his extra points. That’s better than Boz. They made a mistake not signing the kicker they had in a couple of weeks ago. People will have to lose jobs if and when they miss the playoffs.

    5 of 9 on field goal attempts. I'm really not sure this is an upgrade. They should have signed Forbath when given the chance.

    Yup, more head scratching decisions from this team. Colbert has to take some blame for this too, not all on Tomlin.

    It is almost like sabotage. No, I don't seriously believe Tomlin is sabotaging the team, but it is almost like every decision he makes is the exact opposite of what common logic would suggest.

    I’ve said this before. Maybe he wants out. The scrutiny has got to be unbearable.

    McCrane was the other kicker they had in for a “tryout”. No doubt they would have rather signed Kai Forbath instead but they screwed the pooch on that.

    It's a multitude of things. Boswell holds a big piece in that pie but he's not the reason as to why we are missing the playoffs. Its was a complete team, coaching staff , and organizational failure as to why we are missing the playoffs.

    IR due to PTSD no doubt. I have PTSD just from watching him kick

    This is more possible than you may think. I am not one for posting rumors. So take this with a HUGE grain of salt. I have a good friend who is a pretty well known personal trainer. This guy used to do some training with both the University of Pittsburgh and the Steelers. He is friendly with the Tomlin's. To what degree, I really don't know. He told me a few years ago that Tomlin was going to get out when his son started college. I believe his son starts college next year. My friend has given me other inside info over the years that has always come true. So, I will not be shocked if he resigns. Again, this was said in a casual conversation a few years ago so who knows?:shrug:

    I said before the season. A kicker doesn't deserve a contract like that. They're flakey people and their shelf life is shorter then rb's
