One of the main criticisms is I have of the Steelers is their play calling after a turnover. They seem to respond with a "just another series" mentality. After they get a turnover, even after a spectacular play to force a turnover, they don't ride the momentum. They default to run, run, pass. I can't remember what they did after the turnover last night, I was in and out with neighbors in the court during the game. I realize last night was a preseason game, but I feel that would have been the perfect opportunity to take a risk on an unorthodox play, or something a little more risky. Maybe in the past they have forced turnovers so few times they feel the need to protect the ball.
Part of the Ravens success in the past has been their ability to force turnovers, even with their crappy defense last year (special teams play for the most part I am sure, which continues to be a problem for the Steelers). They immediately ride the momentum and usually run a play meant to gain big yardage. I am sure this has put the game out of reach for the opposition in many games.
I am not a stat guy, so maybe this is just my perception. Does anyone have any knowledge of play calling after turnovers? I would be interested.
