    Clark/Polamalu failed big time on that TD pass to Green

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-h...hools-Polamalu

    If you want to watch the highlight again it's above, that ball was floated right in there into double coverage and they just let Green catch it.....Polamalu looked up and saw it coming, I'm guessing he was afraid of a pass interference call or saw Clark and thought he was going to make a play on it or something. But you got to jump up and punch or intercept that ball. It seems like Polamalu has had alot of success blitzing and making huge plays for us throughout the years when we needed it, but sometimes as a coverage guy I question him.

    Clark is just flat-out terrible in coverage. Polamalu could not really make a play on the ball as he was behind it and woulda, as you said, most likely have made PI. You have to give credit to Green though. It was one hell of a play.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Who do we blame for zero points scored in the 4th qtr? Arians... Ben... ?

    This is why we lose... when we do lose.. we score zero in at least one qtr per game sometimes 2 qtrs, this always guarantees a nail biter if not a loss...

    Our defense is holding teams under 20 all year. Everyone scores... they get paid to make plays too...

    I watched that play, I think Troy was going to make a play until he saw Clark coming. He takes his eyes off the ball for a second to look at Clark and then misses the play. If Clark would quit pretending like he can help and stay out of Troy's way, I think Troy breaks up that pass.

    Polamalu should've made a play on the ball. Regardless of whether or not Clark "distracted" him, he should not have taken his eyes off the ball. That's no excuse. You see guys on the same team collide all the time trying to make a play on the ball.

    Breaks up?? That was a int for Troy if Clack had stayed out of the way.

    Troy was a fan allowed to be on the field during that play!

    I don't know why Troy was watching like he thought Clark could make the play...has he ever? All Clark is good for is a few sticks every game. I'd honestly rather see Mundy out there.

    And I like Clark, he's seems like a great guy and he's a very hard player, but he is pretty bad in coverage most of the time.
