Again, focus on how the line has changed as opposed to what was said and take that as a sign of heat being applied from somewhere.

On Sunday the line was, from both Tomlin and Fichtner, “Connor can take all those carries...he gets stronger with all those carries”.

On Thursday we’re hearing “My bad...I should have been rotating the other guys in”.

Something has changed in those four days.

Realizing that Bell is justified in holding out instead of being destroyed (any more) by Fraudlin...

Funny it was Randy who fell on the sword as the head coach does not get any blame.

and I call bullshit on that, too... he's a coach, coaches at a high level, gets results. He's not Chauncey Gardner, no matter how much his coaching style rubs you the wrong way.

Sphinctner. It's only one game. He's a little tight, give him a chance, he'll loosen up...

Props for the Being There reference.

I agree that he does get results. Unfortunately, more often that not, they're negative results in playoff games. We have all established he is a top 10 coach in the NFL today. I've said that time and time again. However, his teams tank in the playoffs. Like Cowher's. And there's always that comparison with Cowher it seems. You know Cowher. The man this board and the old one killed for turtling, bad decisions and playoff futility. He got results, too. They are exactly the same. Great regular season coaches. They managed to win one championship. Many here are treating Tomlin exactly as they did Cowher - as it should be. However, there are some here who slammed Cowher, but for some reason don't do that with Tomlin. The Tomlin apologists will say it's the other way around. Well, for those who praise Cowher and slam Tomlin, I call bullshit on them, too. They both deserve criticism.

This is already expected from that poser coach. There really is No Hate, unless fans Hate being right with the predictability of this team. Fich/Boneheadlin came out unimaginative, stale and really unprepared for in game challenges. As per the standard. For those of us that wished for a new approach? Disappointment reared its ugly head again! The stubborn approach doesn't play out well. Moreover, when your first Professional Game [Fichtner] is against a League Bottom Feeder and you Tie that league bottom feeder, it doesn't really improve upon your reputation. In fact it actually diminishes it a little while embarrassing you. Especially!... Especially with the abundance of talent on this current roster. Just infuriatingly disappointing.

1st and 10 from our own 5 yd line at the 5:47 mark in the 4th. We have a 7 point lead.

It's a 1 score game and if we do not score or have a good drive they are in position to tie the game.

We go heavy package with 6 OLmen plus Grimble and Nix. AB the only wr. We did this on first and 2nd down. We did end up with 3rd and short and picked up the 1st down (a short pass) on the first series but we were fortunate to do that IMO.

Repeat on the 2nd series but with predictable results. That heavy package bunched up the LOS making it easy for them to stack the LOS and so we ran into a predictable brick wall on the first 2 downs then ended up in 3rd and long. All playing right into their hands.

One of the biggest surprises and one that has been talked about all week is the Steelers’ decision to not relieve Conner. Besides one carry by Ryan Switzer, Conner received all of the running back duties, and one has to wonder if the Steelers were better off relieving their running back in order to preserve his legs for the entirety of Sunday’s game.

A look at Conner’s splits by quarter may give a better indicator of perhaps his stamina, or lack of stamina as the game progressed.

First quarter: 4.4 yards per carry

Second quarter: 8.0 yards per carry

Third quarter: 8.0 yards per carry

Fourth quarter: 2.3 yards per carry

Overtime: 1.3 yards per carry

Conner’s yards per carry nose dived after the third quarter, as the running back tallied 102 yards and averaged 6.8 yards per carry. From the fourth quarter on, this number fell to 33 yards and just 2.1 yards per carry. The running back also picked up just one first down from the fourth quarter on, losing effectiveness as the game continued and conditions worsened.

The final carries of Conner’s afternoon went for -2, 3, 2, 2 and 1 yard respectfully. One has to wonder if the Steelers will plan to incorporate Stevan Ridley or Jaylen Samuels more into the game for a drive or series just to ease Conner’s workload should he be needed to close out a contest.

This was so inexcusable that Fitchner or Tomlin failed to give the backup at least one series.
