Ben basically just called his OC a historically challenged dumbass. PIT may be 7-2, but the HOF QB is screaming for change.


This an outrage if true. Send emails, demand Haley's termination. Hope this opens a can of worms. How many other decisions of incompetence.

He's been nipping at it around the edges for a long time now.

Ben never, ever, never ever talks that way about MT, KC, AR2. NEVER. I think he's very frustrated about something.

You are 1000% correct. At least a solid 2 years, by my recollection.

Very true.

I think the above has more to do with the retirement talk than most realize.

When it's 2nd and 19 and the OC dials up a run play, you know the QB is thinking: you're really going to make me try to get 16 yards in 1 play instead of 19 in 2?

The process of how they march through the seasons and years seems to work quite well. Every team in every season has these types of games. The ones that go to the SB pull these types of games out. Everyone on this thread wants unrealistic perfection every week. If that occurred the Steelers would not have a cult following. This season’s success may come down to the TE plays of extreme hustle in a game of inches. Nobody is quitting, the season is progressing, the wins are accumulating and the doldrums of the early part of the season are nearly gone.

Tomlin might not have the orchestra playing music we understand or enjoy completely, but he has them playing music, and they like playing for him.

Multiple people gave me a lot of shit for pointing out the article where Haley basically says he's more than happy to kick (punt or FG, whatever) with the defense playing well.

Haley is forever a cuckold loser

Not a winner

Time to take off the shackles


He needs to get out

Oh come on people. Sure, haley fucks up, but seriously. Players fucked up right and left. The O Line was a fucking mess for the first half. Dropped passes etc. Yes, Haley has problems, but that's not why the steelers were behind all day.

Yes, that was freakin' ridiculous. But where is Tomlin telling Haley to cut the shit, and stop making those calls. Can't he specify situations where no way, no how, should we be running the ball?

Haley calls that game Tomlin tells him to.

And Haley sucks.

Doesn't have to be an either/or proposition.

So Brissett is in concussion protocol after the game...yet he came back in after the Tuitt hit and played the rest of the game.

NFL is spitting in everyone’s face with this concussion protocol shit.

Seattle is getting a huge fine tomorrow for doing exactly the same thing

I expect the colts will also get whalloped

The league continues to slip into the abyss

I had no choice but to listen to this debacle via tunch and hillgrove's steelers.com internet rebroadcast.
They were in rare idiot form even by their standards.

My favorite moments of this dynamic duo's broadcast brilliance:

- When Tomlin throws the challenge flag on the Vince Williams strip after referee Clete Blakeman clearly elucidates the runner's forward progress was STOPPPED (thus negating the ability to challenge), and every single steelers fan as well as every person on this board is smacking their foreheads, our dynamic duo continue to break down the fumble all the way up to the point where the ref informs the stadium Tomlin can't challenge, only then realizing Tomlin's wasting everyone's time
- 2nd half KO, Tunch starts talking smack about how the Steelers D is coming out of the locker room, how they ran smartly and promptly out onto the field as a unit and looked fired up, and that after the first half last minute field goal drive that this was the point where the "bye week would officially be over." Two plays later Steelers promptly give up a 60+ yard touchdown
- On the Vance McDonald TD, Hillgrove stammers and fumbles through the snap, declares that Ben merely threw it away, then nearly FIVE AGONIZING SECONDS LATER and as the Stillers fans in attendance ALREADY start to cheer at the TD, he then collects and corrects himself and declares it a TD. I nearly punched right through my radio console.
- The only time I lose signal the entire broadcast is for a full minute as the Stillers line up for the winning field goal, exactly at the point of the snap.

I was livid with the offense today. None of my rage was directed at Ben. AB alligator armed a deep shot & MB plays like a pussy. Both can learn how to play ball out from Juju...who is as far removed from diva as you can get. Loving that kid.

Yeah I heard this on the postgame recap. And then listened to one of Billy's colleagues defend him, and say that he thought Ben threw it away too. :roll:

That kind of incompetence is OK on a TV broadcast where you can see this kind of thing for yourself. On radio it's unacceptable.

It's time for Bill to step down. Even Myron knew when it was "time".

I was in the stadium for the Ben/Vance TD and it did look like he launched it into the 4th row to a wide open target. Big Ben even admitted to it after the game too. He didn't think he threw a very good pass there.

I was irate on the 2 point conversion where we had to take a TO and then a delay of game penalty. Those are times where I wish I wasn't at the game because 'Freedom of Speech' gets you in trouble... As a parent and if you've ever been involved with organized football, you should know there are going to be things that happen at games that you might not want your child to hear/do. Either prep the kid for what's about to happen, bring a pair of earmuffs or stay home.

I have news for you... the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers are inferior to Montana's 49ers, the late 70's Steelers, and some other teams. Why? Those teams also had great offenses.

Are you the guy that posted about a month or so ago how you loved watching the running game as opposed to the passing game? Are you one of the rock pounding orgasm crowd?

I'm going to laugh myself tits up if the Steelers actually beat NE and make it to the SB.

Because for all the world they look like the shittiest good team in the league.

No idea how they continue to win like this.

The offense is absolutely maddening.

I wonder what it would be like without Hillgrove tripping over his own tongue every five minutes. I don't presume to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the local play by play landscape, but from the examples i've heard i'd wager he's one of the worst if not the worst play by play guy in the business.
But Ilkin is just as much of a dope as he is. When you put them together, its like a study for how CTE can be communicable over radio airwaves. I'd like them both to be put out to pasture.

BUT BUT BUT BUT WE"RE 7-2!!!!!! THAT"S ALL DAT MATTERS!!

I'll continue to repeat it: process over results

This team's process looks FUBAR every week. They look unsure. They look uninspired. They don't look crisp
