    Suisham drilled it, but it was a 54 yarder, which has to be hit perfectly. Bottom line, punt, hope you can play defense, and go to overtime. Perhaps he forgot OT is no longer sudden death?

    **** Poor coaching last night, defense as a unit was atrocious. 8-3 the rest of the way puts them at 10-6. If things stay the way they are now, that won't be easy.

    Anyone that defends tomlins decision is an idiot. The 52 yder he hit he nutted it and it made it by an inch. You punt the friggin football. That was the worse coaching decision i have ever seen in my life.

    I don't know. I guess if the defense had been playing well it'd be the right decision. But Tomlin has to remember how terrible they've been in the final minutes lately.

    A team trying to beat a bottom feeder by kicking a 54yds field goal outside, on grass with a kicker who has never done it before will end up with a top 10 draft pick.

    At the time I thought it was the right decision because I was confident that Suisham would hit it. But after thinking about it, they definitely should have punted. If you pin them deep, I think the D holds up long enough to get us to overtime and a chance to win there. I understand why Tomlin made the decision though. You have to have confidence in your kicker.

    Lets hope they don't blow the pick like we did this call!

    The kiss of death was Sushi making the 52-yarder. That gave Tomlin the confidence to let him try it. Reminded me of the end of the half in SBXLV.

    I don't care if the Steelers had been dominating all season.....You don't try a 54 yard field goal with Suisham.......Suisham doesn't have a big time leg and really was shocked he hit the 52 yard kick.......Really Haley needs to be blamed as well for running the ball with Batch against a stacked box which resulted in nothing......That set up 3rd and long were Ben was pressured and tried to make a play while running like a chicken with its head cut off.....

    I think what we saw there was a coach who wasn't confident that his D-fense, even had they punted I see no reason why the Titans wouldn't have been able to get the ball within fieldgoal range based on how things were going. That field goal attempt though not popular could have either won us the game or atleast ensured we went to OT.
