    Really they should have ran it with Redman on 3rd and 1....lol But really Tomlin did have a legit reason to go for it since really the defense was playing great ball all game....Still a stupid decision....I really don't mind a fake but Suisham running the ball...lol

    I'm not sure i ever seen a call that I thought was stupider. That beat some of the best BA calls.

    On the bight side it does show the faith he has in the D. Along with punting instead of trying a 51 yard FG. What a difference a couple weeks makes.

    I seem to be the only one here but i liked the call it was creative and the D was playing great so it was worth the risk.

    I liked the call, it would have worked against most every other team in the league. At that point our defense was playing excellect and our offense was moving the ball.

    Although the play didn't work, the situation was right.

    Bad call. Kick the field goal. Let dominant defense stop them on next series.

    Worse than a delayed draw from your own endzone?

    Thankfully the defense forced a 3 and out on the next series so no harm in the end but good grief how in the world are you going to potentially put the game in the hands of the kickers hands instead of his feet?! Goodness, it could have been catastrophic but thankfully it worked out in the end.

    Lesson learned; on the road in a close game, don't make the trick bonehead call. If it works I still would have complained that it was risky..LOL
    totally agree. On the road especially...you take all points!
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I wouldn't if minded us going for it with a normal player, like a run to Redman, but a fake field goal, especially that idiotic kind of fake was terrible.
