Pats-Steelers Chattin’ Thread

No Hines, no Deebo, no problem. Actually, it could be a huge problem but I figure if Tom Brady can make easy work of a veteran Steelers’ D, might as well see how he fares against a bunch of young guys. Remember, Stevenson Sylvester: the standard is the standard.

    Farrior out, LB Morrty Ivy added to the 53-man, DE Corbin Bryant cut.

    Too bad they can’t put Kiesel in Harrison’s spot and let Timmons play his own position.

      Keisel’s pretty athletic, but I shudder to think of him in coverage. Lamar actually drops quite a bit.

    Pittsburgh West doing its best to help the Steelers out; Cards and Ravens are tied at 27-27 late in the 4th quarter. Of course, they had a 24-3 lead at one point.

      So much for that. Ravens win, 30-27.

    Well that was a damn good opening drive. Heath just chewed up the middle of the field.

    Lovely. Suisham kicks off out of bounds.

    Solid start by the defense. Gave up decent yardage on 1st down, but stuffed a run and forced an incompletion to get the 3 and out.

    What’s the most catches that Heath has had in one game?

    I’d really hate to settle for a FG on this drive.

    Amazingly, Suisham’s kick was good.

    Steelers starting to implode.

    Woodley just blew up 2 plays, getting the sack on 3rd down.

    Ben really needed to get rid of the ball that time.

    And now Ben throws a easy pick over the middle to give the Pats great field position.

    William Gay beaten by Branch for the TD.

    Mike Carey is a little overdramatic in his penalty announcing.

    Gah! Redman dropped a pretty easy catch with plenty of room to run in the middle.

    TD, Brown!!!

    Great analysis, Phil. Except it was Brown getting the TD, not Wallace.

    Woodley with another sack!

    Holding the Pats to a FG is big there, especially since they get the ball to start the 2nd half.

    That’s about the only time I’ve ever seen the obligatory end of half delayed handoff pick up significant yardage. Nice run by Moore

  • Anonymous

    Eh, in that situation, you may as well just chuck it into the endzone and hope for the best. Dumping it off pads the stats but doesn’t do much else.

    At any rate, that first half was pretty damn good. Other than the inexplicable interception, and 2 sacks that I’d put on Ben holding on to the ball too long, the offense looked very good. The defense was solid, too, and they actually managed to get pressure/sacks on Brady. Still, they can’t afford to let up on offense, because I have a feeling that the defense won’t hold up.

    Good start by the D to start the 2nd half. Another long TD drive would be nice…

    Nice job by Brown to break some tackles and get the first down.

    Having to settle for a FG is awfully disappointing.

    Ryan Clark with the boneheaded penalty. Late and helmet to helmet…

    Wonderful. Now Woodley is hurt.

    Huge defensive stop. Holding the Pats to a FG is big.

    No good!!!!!!!!!!! Off the upright!!

    Naturally, Ben nearly turns the ball over right away. Fumbles it, but recovers.

    They are going waste that miss field goal by going 3 and out right away…

    Or not. Pass to Brown to convert 3rd and long!

    I’ll say this: The only thing that’s going to stop the Steelers’ offense today is the Steelers themselves. The Pats defense just isn’t very good.

    They have to get a TD here.

    I can’t complain about Bruce Arians today, but they haven’t looked great in the redzone

    Once again, they settle for the FG. And they are down to 1 timeout. Up to the defense now.

    The Denver Tebows are getting absolutely walloped, 44-3 by Detroit.

    Gah. Ike Taylor got hurt, but did walk off the field.

    A TD drive would would all but seal this game up.

    The Steelers have absolutely dominated this game, but it’s still only a 2 score game. And Suisham misses the FG attempt.

    • ErikH

      I think they just need to go for it in situations where the FG is over 40 yards.  Suisham just doesn’t have it.

        In most game situations, the opponent 1 – 5 and 20 – 35 yard zones are 4 down territory.

    Not thrilled about Gay covering Gronkowski here…

    Gah! Holding on a 4th and goal interception gives them a 1st down.

    Then again, it looks they should have the TD on that previous completion.

    And TD to Hernandez.

    The Patriots botch the onside kick attempt.

    HOw is this game stll in doubt?

    Maybe 2 of 5 TDs in REd Zone plus the missed FG?….

    Running right into a defense stacked to stop the run isn’t the best idea.

    Honestly, I think I’d go for it.

    Never mind, they got the 1st.

    I really hope they don’t just run the ball three times and settle for another FG attempt.

  • Sarah

    NO they’ll settle for 2 sacks

  • Anonymous

    No, they’ll run it for nothing, then have Ben take a sack, setting up 3rd and long, where Ben takes yet another sack, knocking them out of field goal range.

    • Anonymous

      They were never going to kick a field goal there. If the safe play isn’t there, don’t force it and down’t throw it away; take the sack and drain the clock. The yards don’t matter since the punt is going deep anyway.

  • Sarah

    On the Pgh radio feed Tunch Ilkin is beside himself. Why 2 pass plays, including an empty set? Lose 30 yards.
    Now the game is very winnable for Brady.

  • Anonymous

    So, Brady gets 19 seconds to move the ball 80 yards with no timeouts.

  • Sarah

    This is going to be a very uncomfrotable last few plays.

    Fumble!!!!!! Safety!!!

  • Sarah

    Or not. Safety.
    Suck on that, Belicheck, you big cheater.

    You too, Tommy Dreamboat.

    • David

      Sarah, good to see you again. Love your posts.

      • Sarah

        Hey David nice to see you too!

        Admittedly I am not a BA fan but I thought those last 2 pass plays need some serious ‘splainin’. Run the ball, kill the clock, kick the FG and make it a 2-score game. Really they kept the Pats alilve with those 2 play calls. Assinine.

        As for other calls, why the hell didn’t Belichek Challenge that seemingly-obvious TD pass a few plays prior to the eventual touchdown? Ball seems clearly to break the plane. How much time on the clock would that have saved there, assuming challenge successful?

        Oh, but not to question Belichek  He’s a genius, I forgot.

        My bad.

        • David

          Sarah, no biggie mistake for taking two sacks, IMO. Chewed up some time, and it allowed Sepulveda to get full hangtime on his punt. Glad he got it off. I would have been much more nervous if Suisham lined up for a 45 yarder.

          But no excuse for Belichick not challenging the TD.

          • Sarah

            You are more confident than I with a 6 pt lead David!

            I say take the FG. That’s the game….

  • Anonymous

    So, that’s ballgame. Despite the overall close score, that may have been the Steelers’ most complete game of the season.

  • David

    Biggest regular season win for Tomlin.

    But guess what? An even bigger game next Sunday.
