1st and goal at the 2

Am I just being a real prick to question why there wasn't three running plays in a row to give us some breathing room and a reward for total domination to that point?

I'm amazed at the red zone ineptitude and especially the play selections.

Big package, Nix and Bell.

I don't get it

Shotgun formation. Not even the threat of a play action. Ben has one option and throws away.

Watson hasn't been stopped once all year in short yardage.

He's a fucking hammer.

Bring him in.

I actually don't mind a pass on first down. The problem is the formation and how it was run. Most teams run play action there, suck everyone in, and then have a wide open full back or TE. We go fckin shotgun. Drives me crazy.

If you are going to pass, you have to do it out of a run look. It's not that difficult. The way we were running the ball yesterday, we should have been KILLING them on play action. Instead, we barely used it.

I will say this. Kudos to Haley for dialing up the playaction when we were pinned on the 1 yard line. That was a great call and throw to McDonald. Need more of that.

That was not Haley's call: Ben changed play at LOS to shotgun. Original call was a run play.

do we have TE that we can throw to in that case, but why don't run bell or nix leading Watson.

I thought this thread was about Chef's waist size.

At any rate, the Nix/Watson combo has not been stopped all season on short yardage plays. Why not build a goal line package off it and work in some passes to the TEs to catch people off guard.

People would largely still bitch no matter what. Lol

The only time things are close to reasonable here is after a start to finish blowout and the Steelers just arent going to do that much for various reasons
