Right before 2 min warning Steelers wisely run on 1st and 2nd to make chefs burn 2 timeouts. Facing 3rd and long Steelers pass realizing the clock stops after the play regardless. Brilliant chess moves by Tomlin

Fuck Haley tho....lol

Your trolling isn't even subtle anymore.


Not only that...he was WRONG.

Getting one first down was MORE IMPORTANT than bleeding clock at that point.

When KC got the ball back, they had plenty of time and one timeout to get the ball into the end zone.

They didn't lose because they ran out of time- they lost because they ran out of downs.

Get a first down- and KC never gets the ball back...or does so with so little time left that it doesn't matter.

Teams can't win if they don't have the ball.

By running those two run plays, Tomlin was telling everyone he trusted the defense to get the stop more than he trusted the offense to pick up the first down. In doing so, he gave KC a chance when he could have denied them any chance.


Total bullshit

I hated the punt 4th and 2 from the 35 yard line late in the game. Why not go for the dagger instead of a punt that nets you 15 yards of field position.

That was my biggest gripe with Tomlin in the game. I said it out loud while it was happening...the risk/reward is there, when all you'll most likely gain is 15 yards of field position. Hell, Bell had been running all over them all game. Close the deal...don't live in your fears!

I will give Tomlin credit for this though.. when he challenged the field position on that punt, he was living by his mantra of fighting for every blade of grass.

1. Hated the punt.

2. Would have preferred a pass on 1st or 2nd down before the two-minute break.

3. Just wanted to point out that Andy Reid made a mistake there too, in calling a timeout w/2:06 left. That allowed the Steelers a consequence-free pass attempt. Which was Chef's original point, except Tomlin didn't force it, Andy Reid enabled it.
