    Why was Moore in?????

    I realize Moore is the 3rd down and 2 minute back.....but after we drove the ball down the field and were obviously running and killing the clock prior to the FG, why did Tomlin have Moore carrying the ball? Seems a little unusual to have Moore get his first three carries of the season in that situation. This came after timeouts too, so substitutions were possible. Why not have Mendy or even Redman in there? Is Mendy hurt or removed from the game?

    Why are you complaining? Moore sealed up the game for us.

    One....I'm not complaining. Two....how did he "win the game?" He had a nice catch and run, but he hardly won the game. I was simply asking why why the Steelers first round draft pick and 1200 yard rusher wasn't playing in the most vital part of the game. Was also wondering if anyone had any info about Mendy being hurt.

    I do believe though that he blocks better than the other backs. And would you trust Mendenhal not to fumble on the last drive?? I wouldnt

    They went with Moore because neither Mendenhall or Redman were able to generate anything on the ground. Now yes, the offensive line got zero push and the ground game was going nowhere. Moore is a veteran guy that Tomlin can fall back on whenever he's needs it. He's not a guy who's going to fumble or take negative plays, so there's a level of comfort there with bringing him in.

    Redman only got 3 touches again this week, hard to say he couldn't pickup up yardage.

    That catch and run he made, when he tried to cut inside instead of going out of bounds, my heart stopped, but he made it work and got down the field.

    If it works, don't question the judgement of whoever made the decision, because we won.

    Mendy's career yards per carry was hurt pretty bad tonight. I'm guessing he went to coach and told him that he wouldn't run behind a line that Montana Tech would have dominated.

    Instead of complaining be thankful he was in there because he moved the chains and sealed the game for us
