    What a stupid decision. Obviously you go for the first down there.

    It wouldn't have shocked me if they would have scored.

    Philbin, "Need to execute better. Can't let weather affect us." Guy is an idiot.

    I am stunned at the ineptitude of that call. That has maybe a 5% chance of succeeding just ****ing go for it. It's 4th and 2 from their 35 with 22 seconds left FFS.

    This coaching staff can't get out of it's own way. Some things never change.

    Mike Sherman's having a good though.

    Not calling the timeout was the right call. Not going for it on 4th down was the wrong decision.

    Kickers are 1/8 in the history of that stadium at 50 yard field goals on that end. I'd say our chances of getting two yards was better than making that kick. Idiotic.

    Not to mention two timeouts so you can call a running play. That was idiotic to not go for it. I wouldn't even expect that crap from Sparano.

    I don't understand that one at all. 4th and 2. Just go for it. The percentages, even in these conditions, have to be a lot higher than trying a FG there.

    Fellas, suspect the feedback Philbin is getting led to that series

    Also notice, THill is more or less glued to the pocket now, to me a read option in that situation would have been crucial

    Not if you keep doing dumb **** like that. Absolutely no reason to go for a 52 yarder in the snow.

    Only 1 FG has ever been made from 50+ yards in Heinz in that direction. Do they think we have 2003 Vinatieri kicking??? Even he probably would have missed.

    you have TWO timeouts...RUN it and try to get the first down, call timeout, and you have room to play with to get a closer FG or try for a TD. Dumb call, and then they had a great return...lucky there was no time left for Pitt to get close.

    That was a horrible call to kick it in those conditions. Too many things could have went wrong there. Why not go for it on 4th down?

    That wasn't a stupid decision? Please explain why. We're ahead so we can't call out idiotic coaching decisions now. Give me a break and get off your high horse for once.

    Other thing that strikes me is this what "home field advantage" looks like

    Snowy, and a end of the field that is death to try FG's over 50 yds

    Sunlife on the other hand is a neutral field and very easy to play on

    We get the ball to start the 2nd half

    I have lost all confidence in sherman. Doesn't stick with whats working. Can't make adjustments. I think he scripts the first 30 plays or so, after that good luck.

    I don't mind Philbin not using timeouts when Pitt had the ball but he should have went for it instead of attempting that long field goal.

    All in all a solid first half. Defense playing very well. Got to keep it up.

    I can see him saying that in the press conference if they scored a TD there.

    The entire series was stupid. Way to waste a great play by Wilson and excellent field position. Matthews should have gotten the first, but we still should've went for it. Sturgis is only a 76% kicker in good weather or indoors. Dumb all the way around.

    That last series of events within those last 2 minutes of the half is all the evidence Ross needs to fire Philbin.

    The odds of making that kick in clear weather is slim.

    Let's cross our fingers that it's better than our usual second half opening three and out.

    We have to get a little better against the run. That seemed to start happening later in the second half. On that scoring drive it looked like Pittsburgh wasn't going to need to throw at all.
