    Angry 52 yards.......and a miss

    Was anyone else flipping out when Mike tried that 52 yard FG. We still had the game in hand and was having success stopping Rodgers IF he had to drive the length of the field. Every time we gave them good field position they scored. I thought for sure Ben would do his punt thing and all of a sudden I see them lining up for a FG try.

    Considering who your playing... Yeah they probably should've punted. Although Suisham had more than enough distance on that kick.

    The 52 yard FG miss and Tomlin's poor usage of timeouts in the 2nd half using 2 of the 3 timeouts in the 3rd quarter when you knew the game was going to be close and you would need them in the 4th quarter was very very poor coaching on the part of Tomlin. Like I said in another thread here the Steelers had all the momentum in this game starting midway through the 3rd quarter and going into the 4th quarter and simply pissed it all away especially after the Mendenhall fumble, and really let the Packers off the hook big time...

    Didn't Green Bay end up punting after that?

    I couldn't believe it but the Steelers went for broke and got nothing. Can't change it now.

    re: Risky Punt

    I was also STUNNED when the FG unit came out to take a shot. Perhaps Tomlin was totally SOLD on Suisham after the Bills game that being indoors would be a gimme but obviously nobody told Mike that Suisham was 'no Mr Automatic'. But regardless of that botched attempt, Big Ben had the ball in his hands with enough time to move us into the Red Zone and give the Steelers every chance to snatch a miraculous victory that would of no doubt put Big Ben up there with the greats.

    Its because he was hitting from 50 in warm-ups. Tomlin always watches the kicker during warm-ups and decides based on that. He hit from 54, so Tomlin thought he could hit it.

    Fair enough. If that's the case... I'll take back my comments. Thanx for informing us that Suisham accomplished his deed and it just looks bad on Tomlin when it went pear-shaped.
