That's three weeks in a row he's sucked now. I don't know if it's him at this point, the other receivers outside of Green, or the play-calling. Probably a combination of all three.

What a pathetic display from the offense.

Dline is solid, Burfict is the only LB we have worth a damn, secondary is swiss cheese, running backs are vanilla, we have a bunch of #3 WR's, but no #2, the Kyle Cook injury hurt us bad.


Well-said. I'd throw in the Howard injury hurting the team as well. It's keeping Maualuga in the game.

Let's not kid ourselves... this is a bad football team.


Manny Lawson is a ghost. So glad we didn't give him a long term deal, which I wanted to happen.

I can't get over how poor the play-calling has been tonight. So unimaginative. So predictable.

Standing by what I said last week. We're a 6-10 team. Green is great. D-line isn't bad. That's about all this team has going for it.


No, just a great game plan from Lebeau. Fake walk the safety over the top of AJ taking him away and then come back inside.

We just need better TE play, (where's Charles tonight); and one of these guys take the #2 WR spot. It looks like Jones to me, he just needs to own it.

Honestly.....no. They were double and triple teaming AJ all night and no one else picked up the slack. Dropped balls, no run game after the first quarter. There really wasn't much more he could have done except maybe tried to have foreced it to AJ more.


Agree.

Kyle Cook is a huge loss. Looks like Robinson just doesn't have it yet, Hampton has him lined up as his next snack. No interior push to match Zeitler & Smith on the right. Whitworth did his usual great job on Harrison.

Ben looked so confident on 3rd down, we looked awful; Gresham has just failed to develop into that killer TE we hoped he would be; he looks a little injured to me.

Not sure what was worse on offense: the fact that the Bengals ran the ball on every first down in the second half (way to mix it up there!) or never taking a shot downfield. I swear the safeties were 10 yards off the LOS by the end of the game because they didn't have to worry about a ball going over their head.

Actually, Clark was in a cover 1 and was at least 20+ yards off the LOS the whole second half.

Nothing personal, but this sounds like excuses to me. A great game plan took the offense completely out of the game in the 2nd half? Why no adjustments from our end? And what did LeBeau have to do with run 1st down, run 2nd down, pass 3rd when they were down seven with four minutes left on there own 10 yard line?? That was a pathetically bad series.

They only threw two passes beyond twenty yards all night. I don't see how that can be attributed to the genius of LeBeau. You have to take some shots sometime.

The offense needs a lot more than just better TE play, IMO.

No offence taken man, its good to talk.

They're not excuses, they're reasons. Steelers gameplan paragraph #1 was to take AJ away. They caught a break with the pre-game injury to Marvin Jones, who Gruden said is now our #2 guy opposite Green. Gresham was awful again missing a couple of 3rdD grabs.

I agree, our gameplan was so predictable again; there is a thin line between stubborness and stupidity. Even Al Michaels up in the booth knew we were gonna run it on 1st down.

LeBeaus' plan worked, ours didn't; we are terrible at adjusting. The key stat was 3rd down, they converted, we didn't.
