    On the Steelers: Clark embraces late game challenges

    On the Steelers: Clark embraces late game challenges

    Tuesday, October 13, 2009
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


    After what has happened to the Steelers' defense in the final quarters of five games this season, safety Ryan Clark might sound loopy when he challenges offenses to bring it on.

    "Now teams are coming after us, teams believe they can win in the fourth quarter," Clark said shortly after he and the rest of the defense staved off a Lions rally to hang onto a 28-20 victory Sunday at Ford Field in Detroit. "They feel if they get hot they can move the ball on us. That's how you play this game, to compete. I know guys are going to come after us in the fourth quarter and I welcome the challenge."

    The Steelers have allowed 55 points in the fourth quarter and only 43 in the first three quarters combined. And, considering two of those touchdowns were scored off interceptions of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the second and third quarters, the defense has allowed only 29 points in the first three quarters combined.

    29 points in 15 quarters is impressive...

    55 points in 5 quarters, not so much.

    I just can't understand what the deal is about this team and 4th qtr play? They have come out playing awesome in the first half and put up some big numbers. Then about the middle to end of the third qtr they just do enough to get by.

    Ryan Clark's comments about "bring it on" may be nothing more than a motivator to the rest of his team. Clark is an excellent safety and I hope the Steelers sign him to a multi year deal at the end of this season. I enjoy watching him play, he is fast and he hits hard when it counts.

    He does sound loopy. The other teams HAVE brought it and it's been effective.

    Clark never says bring it on. He said he welcomes the challenge and even admits to the defense having its issues in the 4th quarter. It's amazing how these writers twist players words.

    I'm not sure about our 4th quarter woes on defense, but I'm starting to wonder if the easy camp Tomlin ran didn't get these guys conditioned the way they need to be right now and if they are possibly running out of gas late in games. Not to say that is the case, but something is wrong late in games.
