How do you not run on a 3rd and 2 with the game on the line. Instead you call a pass play with the chance of INC (clock stops), INT, Strip Sack, so many negative variables than just lining up jumbo and running to the right with 2 hands on the ball. Regardless if you get the first down the clock keeps running. 9.9 out 10 OC's call a run there. Cam never seems to amaze me. I am so dis-trout about that play call. It's bad when your happy your QB takes a sack. So effing pathetic Cam.
Unfortunately the Ravens are 8-2,so Cam stays. LOL That was the Steelers defense that gave up three drives that amounted to 6 points. Tucker missed for 3 points. ST have done well lately and deserved a lot of credit. I'll take the win, like the win the great steelers had against the chiefs last week.
I can't get over that call.
Look, it's really easy to use hindsight to criticize a play call. I'm always hesitant to do that. The screen play on 3rd and 13 looks really dumb when it doesn't work, but if it does, it's a great call. I'm not gonna criticize a play call like that, because what do I know sitting at home watching TV...? Not much. There is a chess match going on and I don't understand the intricacies of it.
But this situation was ridiculous. We had the clear strategic advantage, and WE GAVE OUR STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE AWAY THE MOMENT WE LINED UP IN SHOTGUN. Honestly, I don't even care if it's a pass at the end of the day. I don't. As long as you line up in a formation that MAKES THE DEFENSE PLAY THE RUN. Because the defense knew we'd run... everyone knew we'd run.
Fine, you really wanna pass?!?! Don't line up in shotgun! Jesus, I can't stop. That was high school JV level bad.
I find it extremely annoying how we NEVER utilize the middle of the field. If you clamp down the outside part of the field and stuff Rice, our offense is inept.
I'll definitely take the win though! D and Jacoby, stepping up!
Flacco probably saved Cam's job by taking that sack.
Cam's not getting fired during the season, so everyone might as well just try and enjoy the ride.
After the season, hopefully he goes, but for now, we're stuck with him, he's not going anywhere.
