    Poor special teams + poor offensive play calling=Loss

    Without that horrible runback for a TD and without the horrible play call to run the ball on your own 2 which resulted in a safety, the Steelers win this game. So far this year I haven't been too upset with the Steelers special team but they just did a shotty job all around today. Did the Jets ever start behind their own 30? I don't think they did. That's the problem. You can't give them that. The offense scored 17 points, you can't ask much more of them going on how well they've been playing the last few games. This is on the defense and the special teams. Period.

    You hit the nail on the head......Special teams blew chunks today........Suisham makes all of his field goals but is worse then Reed on kick-offs........The play-calling was just awful and noway around it........Such a frustrating loss on so many levels.....Considering the Steelers opened the 2nd half marching down the field for a go ahead TD.........

    Absolutely epic failure on ST. They were terrible all day long, on a day when the game was close you can't have breakdowns like that. ON the opening kickoff no less. That combined with the safety killed this team today. I'm disgusted that we had this great chance and blew it.

    ST definitely sucked today and was the main reason for the loss. I don't think the play calling was that bad. Actually the O played better than they have in weeks, that was a bright side.

    I didn't really mean the play calling, I meant more the play call. You know what I'm talking about. That one play call outweighs any good that BA might have done today.

    On a good note: Mendenhall played amazingly well today, against a very competent Jets defence.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    True. He almost had 6 yards a carry I believe.

    Another positive I think Jonathen Scott left the game with injury.....Don't know if it was serious........I'm not the biggest fan of Trai Essex either but Scott has been dreadful since taking over for Max Starks....Hard to imagine Essex doing worst even though Essex has been just as dreadful at RG.......But Ktrain has said many times Essex is a better fit at OT.....I would take a corpse over Scott right now.....
