    Not to sure about the Troy linebacker situation. Your taking Williams off the field. Troy needs to be in the backfield to help Clark. Thought I heard post game that the Ravens said it was easier to make reads based on Troy being out of the picture in regards to the backfield.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I didn’t have a problem with Troy in the LB situation. He guesses a lot and doesn’t have the make up speed like he used to in order to make plays. It just shows how much of a liability Troy is in pass coverage

  • cencalsteeler

    I’m torn. Everytime I saw him blitz, he was undersized and taken out of the play, much like JJ. At one point, the play was dead and a Ravens player pushed JJ and he flew back 3 yards like a rag doll. With Troy playing lb, we now have two undersized guys pass rushing. My jury is still out on this one.


    First drive of the game, Ben audibles to a run play on 3rd and 12? WRONG MOVE! I don’t care how big of a hole he saw in the defense. You don’t run the ball on 3rd and 12. On three other occasions, Ben had guys wide open over the middle and he threw the ball into the ground in front of the receivers. You can’t ask for a much better job of blocking for Ben tonight from an offensive line consisting mainly of second and third stringers. Our defense wasn’t as sharp as they were last week. Maybe the short week had something to do with it.

    Suisham screws-up a kick on a field goal attempt? I don’t care if it would have been a 50 yarder or a 20 yarder. Against Baltimore, especially on the road, you CANNOT muff a field goal like that. I was embarrassed at that point. Chances are, if he makes that kick, we win the game.

    On another note, Sanders needs to go to ‘school’ for WRs and learn how to catch the ball. He’s a decent WR. He’s just not consistent. This game could have easily gone into OT.

    On that last drive, we sustained injuries to key players once again. I hope they all recover quickly and feel no long-lasting effects from those injuries.

    Final note: Our team put forth a valiant effort after that crappy start to our season. I give them a lot of credit for that. We had a lot of injuries, but still managed to make a go at it. Our season ended by the norrowest of margins in this game. Now I know there are those out there who will say we are not mathematically out of it yet, but with the injuries we suffered tonight, yeah, I’m 99% sure our season is over. Thanks once again to the team for trying as hard as they did. Considering what the coaches had left to work with, they did pretty well. We were so close! This close loss really kills me as I’m sure it does all of Steelers Nation, but we will be back next season. GO STEELERS!

    I laughed also see JJ get tossed like a rag doll by a one arm shove. JJ has to get stronger no question about it and then we’ll see the playmaker we drafted. As for Troy I give him a lot of credit he’s got heart at under 220lbs he’s flying inside with OL that outweigh him by almost 100 pounds. I’m surprised he hasn’t gotten injured.

    Dave T., I’m right there with you. We gave away any opportunity other than the on sides kick to try and win because of the lack of urgency on the last drive. Can’t take that timeout and should have tried to score before the 2 min warning. Once inside about a 1:30 with only one timeout, it became a 50/50 proposition to run down the clock and hope you can convert on the two pt conversion or not. The point is we were behind and limited ourselves to one opportunity, period.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Dave B I agree with your perspective. We needed to run time off the clock and more importantly tie the game. We have had games in the past where we went ahead of the Ravens and gave Flacco and Co. the ball back with time on the clock only to see Flacco march right down the field with the wining score. Our Defense hadn’t stopped them all game especially in the second half so why score before 2 minutes with 3 timeouts and give the ball back to the Ravens? Sounded like nit picking to me also and I’m a big fan of Dave T.

    Is Kelvin Beachum’s success a lesson about the value of very very smart o-linemen?
