Bengals 0-5 against Steelers when leading IN THE FINAL MINUTE.


That should be fireable in itself.

But, please don't fire him.

Has to be more to this stat. Bengals have beaten them before, they had to have lead those games in final minute.

Just like Steelers fans blame the refs for the cheats success the bunguls fans blame the refs for the Steelers success. Discussion boards/twitter was full of them last night.

These Steelers do have issues, on and off the field. All of that still applies after winning a couple games and improving to 3-2-1 entering the bye week. As Tomlin bluntly stated, "We're the same team with the same warts, trying to get better." He didn't isolate any, but that might be because there are so many: The offense and defense warts in progress. The special teams are warts with extra growths in the form of two penalties committed by a long snapper. The coaching, too, can't cover its warts any more than Vince Williams should be covering A.J. Green deep downfield, or Artie Burns should be covering anything other than his face. https://www.dkpittsburghsports.com/2018 ... s-bengals/
The Bolded is truly a headscratcher and a reality check.

THIS was the headscratcher. When asked why he didn’t challenge the JC play, here’s what Mikey said:

Huh?

Someone needs to ask him straight up if he’s got a guy in the booth telling him when to challenge or not.

Because if he doesn’t...

You want a REAL head-scratcher: Apparently, zone defense is a mystery to even experienced watchers of football games.

Jeemie-- you missed the point. Tomlin and his coach in the booth who is watching-- they only get the replays offered by in-stadium crew or whatever happens to show up on the network in the 30 seconds before he has to decide to challenge. IIRC, that play with Switzer happened right in front of the Steelers bench and maybe they thought it was past the line to gain and couldn't get a replay to dispense with that opinion.

Personally, I'm almost NEVER challenging the spot.

1. they RARELY overturn the call
2. replay angles are almost all inconclusive
3. spots are so freaking bad and yet the rules for winning the challenge are so specific

It's not VW's fault that the defensive calls have him lined up in the slot on Green. . .
I could be mistaken, but it looked like Sherman could have lined up against green on that throw over the middle seam and it wouldn't have mattered. Dalton made an exceptional throw high and away from the defender. But I agree that VW is slow and it's not a good matchup.

Outside of two drives the defense played pretty well I thought. The end of the 1st half was partially due to shit STs. I'm not saying the defense is good, but they've held their own the past two weeks against good offenses and arguably two of the best WRs in football (Jones and Green).

I really doubt that anyone would argue that point. Beyond that, agree completely
