I question the play calling now that we're in striking distance. WTF?

C'mon, guys.

I'm great with it if we get 6. If we get 3, it's a squandered opportunity.

I get the call, even though I don't love it. Forces Cleveland to used a time out.

Should have taken the 3 and got the ball at the half.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

WTF??? You take EVERY point you can get in a game like this. Wasted opportunity.

F-ing stupid, Tomlin. Even with 3 here, we get the ball to start the half and had a chance to extend the lead.

F-ing pathetic. Awful.

Why do we never use timeout before half? 30 some seconds off the clock we could have used.

And now Boswell, our biggest scoring threat, is headed to the locker room.

DUMB. AS. FUCK.

We have no kicker now. We have to throw bombs.

What a frustrating way to end a half.

Makes us ripe for a turnover, IMO. Cleveland knows we can't play for a FG.

Yep. Pathetic. PATHETIC!!!

Man, I am pissed. Stupid f---ing coaching killed us there. There was no need to gamble. None.

Kick the ball, go to the locker room leading IN CLEVELAND in a game where the Browns were so overconfident they were likely to be a little demoralized. We get the ball at the start of the 3rd with a chance to extend our lead.

Instead? A boost for Cleveland, no points for us, and we lose our kicker.

That was Detroit Lions play calling.  Mad

"Stupified" is the exact right word.

"Dumb as F---" is also the exact right word.

I think that was the first reverse by the Steelers that I ever saw that actually worked.

Guys - it's a 3-3 game. Defensive struggle. Points are PRECIOUS. Simple. Kick the 3 - get the ball back to start the second 1/2.

If you score, you're up by either 6 or 10.

That was really really foolish.

Agreed. Stupid AF.

Here's my concern. We pretty much dominated that half, only to shoot ourselves in the foot. 

My spider senses tell me Cleveland is going to talk this over at halftime, adjust on offense and come out and kick our ass in the 3rd quarter.

It felt like a huge shift in momentum. It was only 3 points... yet it was more than 3 points.

Sincerely hope I'm wrong.

Tomlin says, "We wanted to be aggressive."

Dumb ass. How 'bout be SMART?

He wants to "be aggressive" yet we keep throwing nothing but 3 yard passes.

3 and out.
