That's what I just said to a buddy of mine. I know it's the Browns, but they've had a top 10 defense recently and I came in to this game kind of expecting to be underwhelmed. I'm excited lol.

And the AB Bruce Lee kick will be one of the best plays of the year.

The "Bruce Lee Kick" we have a name for THAT play already...

I'd take a TD on punt return V the browns for the Bruce Lee kick anyday!

SOOOOO many highlights and positives.

my ONLY negatives are

I want to see Suisham kick the ball out the back of the end zone on kickoffs
and without wanting hate replies.. Jarvis Jones, can't tackle a WR in the backfield and breaks doesn't read the end around that was telegraphed his way... HE SHOULD have had 2 tackles for losses as well as his sack.

Just need us to blank the Browns second half, get some defencive turnovers and more of the same on offence and it's been a perfect opening day :)

My halftime adjustments.

Defence... Hoyer is looking for no one other than Cameron. Double him
Keep the RB's inside the tackles. Keep Hoyer Contained and put pressure on him in his face

Offence.

Lets get some Blount to pound them down for 2 series, and try to get archer more involved, If we're ahead by 30 with a quarter to go, get some reserves some game time.

The stains are right back in the game. If the Steelers defense don't clean up their act I fully expect to see a lot of teams using the no huddle against them.

Rollers
09-07-2014, 04:27 PM
Yeah BigT They got an all pro at QB and no injuries to their wide receivers. Come on man. This is a collapse of the D and you know it. The D line is getting shoved off the ball and we're getting zero pressure. 4 penalties on special teams, Ike getting toasted again. It's all familiar. So you can give the Browns credit but that's a team that is beaten up, starting a bunch of new guys and we're laying down. That's my take

Big T

They're just running the ball down our throats. If Ike makes that catch we're out of this for the time being. Shazier is playing well. Jones actually had a sack. He's also missed a ton of tackles

This is absolutely pathetic. If they lose this, Tomlin should be on the hot seat. I'm sorry, but you don't lose to the Browns after being up 27-3 at the half. Also time to consider of LeBeau has passed his prime. This crap just doesn't work.

Rollers
09-07-2014, 04:38 PM
And the offense is playing better?

No, but sometimes the D has to step up and play. This offense is going to sscare NO ONE this year. But us it looks like. So how about the D step up and get ONE stop in the second half. Just one. This is a team collapse of epic porportions. But geeze at some point the D has to at least make a stop somewhere. They look totally lost out there. But to your point I guess the magic fairy dust Munchak sprinkled on these guys has worn off. Our O line is the O line of old

The collapse will be the only story, but they deserve credit for hanging tough and pulling it out.

Yeah but there better be some serious soul searching on both sides of the ball. Those offensive calls were just offensive

the defense that choked away a big lead, made two straight big stops on consecutive drives..redeeming themselves to some extent.

There will be. They obviously know they have to work on defending the no-huddle. It's clearly showing to be an issue. The offense also went away from what was working in the first half. I think they know that after Ben's post game comments. But they dug down, kept fighting, and pulled out the W.

They obviously have some things they need to work out, but I'm not willing to throw in the towel for the season after one absolutely disastrous half.

We thought the offense may have to carry the defense at least over the first half of the season, and it looks like it might have to be that way. Though it won't be talked about, the offense showed that it is capable of being dominant. Ben looked great for the most part, Wheaton firmly stepped up as th #2, Bell looked fantastic all game. The interior of the O line played well, but those tackles need some work.

That's what I'm saying. They deserved the backlash they got for the collapse, but they deserve credit for staying tough and pulling out.

Who'd want to be a Steeler fan eh! That game summed up a season i reckon. Showed what we CAN do when we're playing well but showed our limitations.

My biggest gripe is the lack of defensive adjustment to what was going on for the whole of the 3rd quarter. What was Lebeau thinking ??

Offence is in much better state, but horrible play call on 3rd and short Blount and we just signed M Gilbert for big money for 4 years .. .and then i find out he gave up the 3rd most sacks last year ( 11 ) and starts this year giving up 2 in one game!

Right now i'll take the win and hope they sort out the defence in how to make adjustments as you know the league will see what the Browns offence did to us and how effective it was, so EVERYONE will now try it until we show we can stop it.

I'd rather loose with a tremendous fightback, than loose with a stupendous lead and then blow it. Browns fans will be positive

You would be in the minority bro. A win is a win and if you would rather lose with a great comeback is just mind boggling to me. So based on your comment if the Steelers lost you would be happy.

What a stupid call. Every Brown knew where it was going. They ran it right into the teeth of the defense. I don't even know what to say about that call. It was beyond horrible.

Stupiest call by an offensive coordinator in the history of the NFL. I am sorry, Haley blows dead goats.

My point exactly. A lot of teams collapsed today. I think the Bears collapsed as well. I would rather win in an epic collapse versus a loss.

They better, every team we play moving forward will pattern their offense after the Brown's in the second half.

Yeah but i could have told you that's what the browns would have done, and the entire 3rd quarter our defence looked liked they had never seen a no huddle offence before. That was scarry, and kudos to the Browns for the way the executed it perfectly.

So saying we just need to stop the no huddle offence is well and dandy if we just can't ... as it looked like for the ENTIRE 2nd half.

People are making too big an issue of the no huddle. What the Browns did was nothing like what the Eagles did. It had little to do with the problem.

Even in the no huddle, they ran mostly run formations and we could not stop it. That would have happened with a huddle or not. That opened up the play action pass (a lot of bootleg off the play action).

In short, the run defense was the problem. I would love to see how PFF grades each of the DL because I was not watching specific players there but it looks like we need to go Cam Heyward, McCullers, and Kiesel as our starters ASAP. Cam Thomas is as bad as I thought he would be and we need beef in the middle.

Lot of folks here said the success the Eagles had in the preseason with the no huddle was no predictor for the regular season. Looks like that was wrong

If we would not have knocked Tate out, we would not have seen Isiah Crowell. We helped the Browns advance their new starter.. He would have been a nice pick in the 7th round. Lots of us said he was a dozer back in April.

I was just reading the comments on the jump kick article on ESPN...gotta love all the steeler haters calling for Brown's head saying it was "clearly" intentional...I especially like the comment where someone said brown "drove the punters head into the ground" as if gravity had NOTHING to do with that....

The point was that it is only the first game of the season. **** happens and some good teams played terrible today. It doesn't meaning anything unless it continues. Give it more than one one game, geez. If it continues than congrats on feeling much better. I for one will enjoy my Sunday because the Steelers won. I thought the whole point of these games was to win.

Who said anything about not feeling good about the win? Look, I'm not a guy that looks at other's troubles to feel good about my own. You're asking me to feel ok about that effort out there since "other" teams struggled. Did they struggle against a team as bad as the browns, at home? I don't know but I'm betting not. So if it makes you feel better that "other" "good" teams struggled that's ok. I'm glad, I really am. I would have liked to see these guys whip the Browns and NOT leave all those questions out there, that's all. In many other posts I've siad I'm happy with the win. However taking comfort in other teams woes is not what I do. After all there were a lot of teams that lost more games than the Steelers last two years so I guess I should feel much better about that as well? I don't know. I just think it's the lamest thing ever to say "hey a lot of teams struggled today it's only the first game" It was the Brown's first game as well.
