    Play calling sucked !

    Cowher and Whiz were terrible, but we can thank BC for the dumbass calls ! We should never have been throwing on the goal line nor should we have been throwing as much as we did until the end, when Ben was not having a good game. BC is a defensive guy, he needs to leave the offense to someone else !

    Why in the hell were we throwing all the time when Willie was having such a great game. You don't throw it when your QB is struggling and give away a TD. With the game on the line Ben choked !!!!!

    it was not whiz....cowher does it all....whiz was proabably trying to put in good plays but cowher over rid everything......it was cowhers decision to put in ricardo and that lost us the game.....it was ours..the benglas players heads were hanging...cowher is a bum...and winning the superbowl was the worse thing that could've happened to cowher...he just doesn't have the fire anymore....i hope bettis is right and cowher leaves

    Most likely because Wilson hasn't done squat and Hines doesn't looked fully healed yet.

    I personally don't think Cowhers head is in the game/season right now! Hopefully during this bye week he will do some soul searching and determine if he really wants to continue coaching. There were some greddy calls by both Cowher/Qhiz especially on the goal line when Ben was pciked off... Ben made some greedy mistakes as well...

    Why in the hell did we try to throw on that 2nd drive when Ben ended up throwing that INT. We were in the redzone six times today and only got TD's twice. Sure the players (Roethlisberger) might have done something stupid (throw INT's) but all of that is because of bad play calls. They say he's not at 100% strength yet so why are we calling plays where he tries to heave it as far as he can and underthrow it horribly?

    All good points...the main thing is, the play calling comes into serious question here. When you have goal to go on the one, and we've been running well, stick with what got you there. Everybody knows we can throw when we want, but we're known for punching it in..the main goal is, get the points and do what works till they prove they can stop it. They couldnt stop the run all day, they stopped the pass all day, yet we remained pass happy way to much. Ben is getting valuable work but it's clear he's not back yet.
