I agree. At least give them the threat of a run. 

That said, Ben hit his man for a first down. Moncrief just didn't squeeze it.

Week 1. Against the Patriots in Foxboro, no less. Not a surprise. 

It's gonna take some time for these guys to gel. I'd be beside myself if it was week 12. Or even week 5. But in week 1? I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it. It sucks, it's disappointing, but it's not a surprise. We weren't a playoff-caliber team last year, and so far, we obviously aren't one this year. 

But we may become one. Time will tell.

Largest half time deficit since 2004... sigh. Well I'm a masochist so let's bring on the 2nd HALF!

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!!

Moncrief clearly turned the wrong way. What is his DEAL??? A fade was a shit call there anyway. On first down, maybe. But not on 3rd & goal from the 1.

And then we settle for a FG, down 20? Man... I don't get it.

#11 needs to sit his ass on the bench. Reminds me of Limus Sweed.

WHY did Washington run out of bounds?

....and the reason Tomlin went for 3 was because he knew we couldn't get 7.

Still a lot of football left. Switzer needs to watch Edleman and take copious notes.

Good grief. Humiliating there. Kam got burned big time.

Sure am glad we got those 3 points from the 1-yard line, though.  Eyes Embarassed

That's a technique I haven't seen. Don't cover him and hope performance anxiety makes him not catch the ball?

Much to learn from this game tape.

Remember, Tim. It's games like this that make us appreciate the good ones.

Or something like that.

Our offense has me hoping for another retarded Tide - do-your-laundry-on-Sunday-because-some-TV-show-will-lose-viewers commercial.

What's really amazing is that we're losing like this with (dare I say it?) with zero turnovers.

ok, 4th quarter. "No Quit" time.

Time to see what our character is like. The chances of winning are almost nill - but lets get a good garbage-time drive in. Lets get an interception or another sack.

No quit.

It puts where we are in perspective and like I said, gives the coaches a lot of good tape.   We grow from here.

No turnovers is a positive.
