    Monday morning fans in Arizona are asking “Why does our team always play down to their opponents? It’s a failure of the coach not being ready for a game.”

    Fans in Baltimore are saying “Geez our head coach won’t use the best field goal kicker in the NFL to try PATs and he has cost us home field advantage and maybe the division”

    Tennessee fans are saying “Vrabel has absolutely no control over this team. How do you let a well coached team do such childish pregame antics?”

    In Pittsburgh fans are saying “Fire Tomlin, he sucks!” ‍♂️

    You don’t know that though I don’t care how bad the offense looked the entire half you can’t just throw potential possessions away when you are losing a game by 7-10 points. They got the ball back with 20 seconds left and got into FG range. So you can’t coach like that and assume your offense isn’t gonna do anything. That’s playing scared and you don’t win games that way period. Tomlin screwed it up no matter how you try and spin it.

    Seamed like you were questioning why we didn’t have one and now you’re mad that we do?

    We IMO that was some terrible clock management before the half. Most teams have someone who is the “clock expert “ though. This isn’t just a Tomlin thing.

    I think this is the correct answer.

    Tomlin had no faith in our offense to do anything other than a 3 and out with a 15yard punt to follow.

    This is so correct. Not all , but most think You have 2 be on one side of the fence, or the other. Like You can't like something someone does, but dislike another thing they do.

    Would be nice if you didn't just make these all up. Or are you cruising around that many different team forums?

    Hell the two minute offense is the most successful offense the Steelers got. What better time to use it?

    I'm completely flummoxed over Vrabel for allowing the OC to call 35+ pass plays. Both Starkey and Zeise nailed it in columns today writing about how completely ridiculous it is.

    As I wrote earlier, besides the fact that you were running at will and that Tannehill sort of sucks, you actually play into TJ Watt's strength. If Belichick tries to game plan the other team's best weapon out of the game, Vrabel did the exact opposite. He game planned the Steeler's best defensive player into the game. LOL.

    Stan was HEATED over Claypool the previous week. He was really letting go. Was good to hear someone speak openly (especially in these days).

    He didn’t want to save time for our offense because we ran out of plays to call a few weeks ago

    All fan bases are the same, our coach sucks! Fire the coach! He can’t do anything right!

    You don’t really believe it’s unique to just the Steelers do you?

    Not saying Tomlin doesn’t have his faults but it’s crazy to think other fan bases don’t do the same exact thing. Fans is short for fanatics.

    Yeah of course they do. But those looked like direct quotes from some source. I just for once would like to have the feeling that this team had its **** together and won't just flame out but alas...

    I actually do. I like to see how other fans are reacting to a loss that they were supposed to win. Bottom line, everything you feel about Tomlin those fans feel about their coach....all NFL fans are pretty much the same.

    Not all. Most Ravens fans blame every thing on everything, but their Qb.

    Like the average dog, living in the moment and nothing past it. Its literally your job to give your team the best chance to win. He did the opposite of that. Its a bad explanation IMO.

    The best thing about Tomlin's first half clock management is that it distracts from his second half clock management.

    Literally no one is talking about calling a defensive timeout on a Titans 3rd and 14.

    I find Duke’s question odd. It takes all of seconds to do a quick google, find another teams board and scan the thread titles.

    I myself go and revel in the misery of the AFCN boards when they lose. I don't comment....I just bathe in the pain. LoL
