No blame for Juju. A freak play. He's played his butt off all year. 

Blame rests squarely on the shoulders of Tomlin, Butler and the defense, who once again let us down late.

59-minute men.

We'll have years and years more of Tomlin.  I guess we get used to it

No, that was a Tomlin call.

Should have been more clear: meant Tomlin has the judgment of a ST coordinator ... Another example of him thinking he's the smartest guy in the room... Rarely the case !

A few other things that bother me:

The STUPID fucking call to run Ridley, the fumbler, on 3rd and 2 instead of continuing to do what we had been doing most of the game. We run every time he's in, so of course we came up short. And he's a fumbler. So of course, he fumbled.

The SHIT defense played in the final seconds of the first half. How do you allow a simple crossing pattern to go for like 45 yards? We gave them a cheap, EASY FG which proved to be the difference in the game.

There were a pair of PI calls on Haden that were unforgivable. Not on Haden; on the refs. There was no PI on either play. Both led to Saints TDs. I hate the fucking rule and I think we need to somehow introduce instant replay reviews to PI calls. They are game changes that are HIGHLY subjective. There are too many 30-40-50 yard plays that come via shit calls by lousy refs. I know this will never, ever happen... but I hate the rule as it's called in the NFL.

And now... we need a win over Cinci and help from the flippin' BROWNS for a chance to go one-and-done in the playoffs.

Weeeeeeeee!!!!

Tomlin needs to go.

I'll blame him.  A little too preoccupied with his brand and his camera crew in tow any time he leaves his house.

Oh, bullshit.  Pi_careless The dude is a baller. 

Juju was definitely blaming Juju. He's not the reason we lost.

Honestly, I'm thinking he's learned allot of that behavior watching the rest of Tomlin's boys strut their "brands". Fits in rather well actually... And, yes, he is a baller!

what you just said makes no sense.  yeah i'm sure you'll excoriate me for this but he works his ass off all the time.  He brings nothing into the game with him that doesn't relate to the game.  He was crushed.  Yeah he should have hung on but he's a GREAT player.

Ben will be in Canton

AB should be in Canton

Now what would be said, if one or both, would be out tailgating with fans before the Pats game?

Personally, I'd find it pretty f'n cool if players were tailgating with fans before the game. That would be mind-blowing as a fan.

Ridley was let go once because he fumbled a lot.  So who do we give the ball to in crunch time with the game on the line?  Ridley.  Another Tomlin exclusive

First, you have NFL caliber running backs on the team.

In hindsight the F.O. brass was completely bamboozled by Leaving On Bell. They really thought he would be back in the fold after training camp, then after the first 6 games. They were caught off guard and flat footed. They had time to bring a veteran in but were either arrogant or lazy. In their defense I wonder how many F.O.s would think the same, it takes a special kind of stupid to turn down the contract offer then reject the tag. We need to go RB early in next year's draft si we can protect some of the 4th quarter leads.

Ridley won't be back and might not be activated for the season's last game. He should be cut asap. I think Samuels will be good in do time, but that missed blitz pick up in the 4th that lead to a sack hurt. Connor has shown problems but will need to prove he can stay healthy and protect the rock. But alas, we'll draft another LB in next year's draft.


    Next - Minkah, #39!
