    Play calling at the end of the half today...

    Was down right putrid,pathetic,and flat out inexcusable by Tomlin,Arians and the whole staff. The triple reverse play to Wallace that blew up was down right ridiculous to begin with especially when Ben had been absolutely torching the Dolphins secondary up to that point on that drive. Not just that but after Ben got sacked at about the 37 or 38 yard line with about 10 seconds left or so why not call a timeout and either have Reed try a 54 or 55 yard FG or have Ben throw one up to the end zone at the very least?? By not going for any type of points there very well could have and damn well almost costs the Steelers this game today. Tomlin knew points were going to be tough to come by today and for him to just conceed the clock and let it tick down to nothing and not try a long FG by Reed or throw a hail mary into the end zone was one of the worst decisions he has made since he has been the head coach of this team. It was flat out dumb and inexcusable not doing anything there... Was I the only one that was just absolutely fuming at the end of the half when they just let the ****ing clock run out or was anybody else doing the samething??

    Everyone was screaming at the TV when they let the clock run at the end of the half. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! It's a 56 yarder..GO FOR IT. Jesus.

    Well Reed hasn't exactly been accurate this year. Ive been calling for Arians head for 3 years now. He has no imagination. I mean ken whiz, mullarkey would have had dixon out there in a slash role by now (yes I know he's injured right now). Arians is too predictable. Its like a few weeks ago vs Baltimore. Its 3 and 4 in Baltimore territory, he throws the ball into the end zone? Get the first down, keep the drive going. This was Batch, not ben???
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    But what do you have to lose with 4 seconds left in the half?

    Play calling in general was craptastic today. I mean seriously, the run game is not working and I understand that we need to try and run but there's time when you use alternatives and then sneak in the run off the pass. Arians continued to pound Mendy and we lost yardage. Once again Ben makes the plays that Arians screws up.

    The play calling at the end of the half was so unacceptable that he should be strung up in front of Heinz Field and beaten!

    Seriously, you run a reverse when you have backups in on the right side???? We've not had a successful reverse all year.

    his kick being short and ran back for a touchdown.

    Don't do that. We don't need you. We didn't need you at the beginning, we don't need you now."

    No chance. Reed had the leg to get it 55 yards. If he had kicked and missed it would be outside the uprights not short.

    I didn't, you have a QB that had already fumbled twice, give it to a RB...
