Offense Chokes in Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

You saw it.

It happened.

That's all I can say.

 

I totally agree, Max. Boldin dropped a sure TD pass and Housh a sure first down on the last drive. Joe was weak, the O-line sucked, and most of the offensive play calling was unimaginative and predictable.

 

One last thing: Where was Donte Stallworth?

 

I'm going to go be sick now...

And Ben and his OC used his third and forth WR to win this game.

 

Boldin, Mason and Stallworth for - 2 yards, disgusting.

 

And btw Defense is still the better unit. Not exactly what I thougth 3-4 month ago.

Losing is never good but losing like THIS!!!!!!? It looked like the Browns offense in the second half.

 

Will Mason, Ray and Reed be back. Will they want to put up with this crap?

No other way to put it. They stunk.

 

 

I would like to see Stallworth as the 3rd WR next season, especially since our current guys are all route runners, but what would be the point? Have him run down the field as a decoy all season while we try to force the ball to the route runners and running backs? What a waste.

 

Oh, Heap played well. That's about all I can think of.

Everyone on offense should share blame. I cannot think of one offensive player who had a good game.

Heap was good in as much as he was involved. which was not enough. I'm still perplexed as to why Rice was expected to carry as much he did and why our WRs were not thrown to more. Even if Taylor and other Steeler DBs were having great games they should have been challenged more. What did Boldin have, like 4 passes his way? Flacco was inaccurate many times and didn't seem too decisive when under pressure. We still have serious OL and protection scheme issues. this one hurts, and I wouldn't blame multiple veteran pro-bowl Ravens for cashing it in at this point. And yeah, where the heck was Stallworth? Why didn't we try WR bubble screens or end-arounds like they did?

Momentum shifted for good when Ray Rice fumbled. From that point on everybody on that offense stood around waiting for somebody to do something. They were in fetal position mode. "What do we do!? What do we do!?"

Cam got that lead and true to form, they right away took their foot off the Steelers throat. Just like they did all season long.

All year long they know they have to finish games. They say "We're gonna finish".

Bullshit.

I know blaming Cam is the popular thing to do, but Cam wasnt fumbling, dropping passes, or throwing INTs to double covered receivers in the second half. I do agree we tried to run too much when it wasnt working, but the turnovers are what put the game back in the Steeler's hands much more than any play calling by Cam IMO.

I hear you Spen. That's true.

I have to believe that with Flacco, Rice, Heap, Bouldin, TJ, Mason ect, that quite a few OC's would have got better production and execution out of that group than Cam did this year. He never could get them to take that next step.

Joe was holding on to the ball way too long and missing open receivers. When he did hit open receivers they dropped the ball. I thought Cam called a really good game, the quarterback and the receivers just did not execute. I thought the offensive line played as well as they could against the Steelers.

Right cleetz...I was going to say Joe just takes too long to make a decision and throw the ball. I'm watching Rodgers and Ryan here and those guys get it out fast. Sad to say...Joe can't/doesn't do that. He should have picked that secondary apart today IMO.

Is that because Rodgers receivers are getting open faster? Or because Flacco is too slow?

I wish I knew Dee.

Is it the same simple routes over and over again so teams can easily prepare for it?

Today, on Heaps TD, was the first time I saw a pic...totally new for this offense and the result? TD.

 

Rodgers receivers run inside, out, cross the middle ...AND....he avoids hitting the easy short checkdown to instead, pass to the open guy 10 yards deeper. I saw Bouldin open deeper but Joe threw to Rice....the sure easy completion... but hitting Bouldin would have hurt the Steelers.

Honestly, since it came up, I am getting sick and tired of the calls for Bulger. He has been terrible as a starter the last couple years he was one. Don't you think that if he had anything left, he would have been the starter in Carolina, Arizona, or Cleveland this year in place of Clausen/Moore, Anderson/Hall/Skeleton, and Delhomme

I honestly haven't heard any calls for Bulger. But then again, I make it a point to avoid the local radio shows. Most of the callers they let talk over the air are blathering idiots.
