1. I was impressed with your team's toughness and physicality. We've already played the Titans and Ravens this year, but I think you guys measured up every bit, and the Steeler locker room was full of respect for the Phins after the game. 2. I was not impressed with your offensive play calling. From an outsider's perspective, either the coaching staff has no confidence in Henne or Henne has no confidence in himself. I don't believe you guys took a shot down the field the entire game. After the second first quarter fumble, you guys ran three straight run plays and kicked the FG. I remember thinking, "boy, I'd be pissed to be a Phin fan after that." The final two minute drive was horrible, the first down run was up there with our reverse in the two minute drill at the end of the first half for stupid. The subsequent pass play was a mess too. Henne got great protection in the second half and showed some talent when he had lots of time. But anytime we got a shread of pressure on him, he broke down in the pocket. I'm just not sure I can honestly say that you got a championship level QB right now. Nonetheless, you guys have real talent. You have a great O-line, two top tier receivers who compliment each other well, an above average defense, and yet you played like an underdog that simply want to keep it close and hope for a break at the end. I don't know if we're the best team in the AFC, but I think it's fair to say we're one of the better teams. To beat us, you have to go for the kill. Your staff's offensive gameplan was the exact opposite of that. So while you guys moved the ball decently at times, and were able to cause our offense some problems, we were able to get 7 points in one 50-yard play, while you guys seemed happy to kick field goals. It just seemed like your coaching staff has the mindset of a 9-7 team, even though you have 11-5 talent. 3. The fumble: Basically, it's this simple: the refs screwed up and called a TD when there was a fumble. After that, everything is irrelevant. It didn't matter who recovered the ball because the play was called a TD; the ball was dead. You couldn't have recovered the fumble because a TD had been called, and anyone who saw the call would not have been competing for the ball. The refs' reliance on no video evidence as to who recovered is a red herring and CYA for them. Once the TD was called, there was no possible good outcome for you guys. They already irrevocably screwed up the play. The Steelers' guys take on it was that they had hands on the ball too, and the reason the Phins defender walked away from the pile with the ball is because officials were telling them to get up because the TD had been called. Point is didn't matter who got the ball. You guys have a legitimate gripe because the refs did exactly what they are not supposed to do and they cut off a play that should have still been in progress. It easy to say "well, if you'd made plays some other time, you wouldn't have been dependent on the call." But, hell same thing could have been said about us. Anytime a ref makes a mistake and it impacts the outcome of the game, it sucks, and that's what happened. 4. Your coach wearing whites at home so we would wear black uniforms is amazingly gay. It's bush league, and the Steelers feed off stuff like that. Once again, I just don't feel like your HC has the right mentality for your team. You guys are actually good; you can win games against good teams without tricks and luck. What message does that send? It says to your guys "we need every tiny advantage we can get to win this game, even if it means we aren't going to wear our regular home uniforms in our home stadium in front of our home crowd."
