You didn't seen anything, you SAW it #1 and yes Douglas was open only because Troy timed his break on Roddy's route perfectly. The right read would have been for Ryan to look at Roddy and then slip it into Harry but he never saw Troy.

Partial blame definitely falls on Ryan's shoulders but at the same time credit should be given to Troy for an excellent play.

Yea but take it one more step Matt tried TOO hard to looking him off, and only looked back to throw. Which if there was any other defender there would not have been as costly troy is the man

Just looked at the replay, and I wouldn't say he was wide open, but Ryan would have had to make a pretty good throw to get it to him(I believe he could have).

Also, some people were saying he stared down Roddy. I looked at the replay a few times and that's not the case. We just ran that play so many dam* times that eventually someone picked up on it and picked it off(I blame Mularkey)

Looking back at it, there is no reason for Matt to risk it with 1:45 left in the game and sitting on your own 21. That is just TOO risky. Also, it looked like he could have dumped it off to Norwood or throw it to Douglas(would have been an easier throw to Douglas, still tough though) Part of the blame goes to Ryan.

I was a very good play by the Safety. The Safety jumped the route from his position. I was something that Ryan hasn't seen before...I'm quite sure of it.

I've never seen the CB release to the Safety and the Safety was confident enough and talented enough to jump a route. The ball didn't appear to be in the air that long.

I don't fault Ryan for this.

Ryan blew it bigger than $hit. He should have been looking at Troy and it would have been clear that he was already moving over to cover up Roddy. It was not as much a sneak as you might think. Look at it again. He commits way over and Ryan had HD wid a$$ open. HD should have been looked at much more today, not just this one. Ryan was lost. Sad to say. Ryan sucked and MM sucked and needs to be fired. The sadest thing of all is that when MM gets fired, we have to begin learning all over again. I am so bummed out, I kept away from the boards all dam day. I wanted this win badly. WTF kind of offense are we running. I also got discouraged even more watching some of these other teams like GB. We can't seem to take off the training wheels in our 3rd dam year, and then you see the Pats, Packers, Colts, Texans and many others picking D's apart like gangbusters, while we flounder the entire game. I watched it online and I swear it was like torture. I kept asking myself why in the world do we refuse to act like a prolific offense and stop playing so pathetically lame. We made it real easy on Pitt. I really sensed that Pitt was dictating the game to us rather than us making them try to figure us out. MM has to go and I pray that Ryan is just the pawn here. I am not going to get over this one for a while. Game one gone. I sure hope Management sees that something has to change.

I dont think Ryan stared him down he seemed to have his eyes moving and the fact that the play was ran about 15 times didnt help either. Troy is a future HOF IMO and he is gonna key in and make a play on that eventually. Its the same as at the end of the half when MM ran that play to Roddy just switched sides. I hope he can learn to be more creative.

the play didnt cost us the game...but without it things may have been different. I am not one to complain especially after losing only one (away) game. Anyway although some of the blame should be put on matt ryans shoulders for the pick, he threw it in a spot where only roddy white and troy could have had any chance at catching it...troy made a textbook perfection play that 99% of nfl players wouldnt have had any chance to make. Either way theres no reason for us to complain because if you think your upset about the game imagine how matt ryan feels being his own biggest critic.

Exactly, Troy didn't bait anything, didn't hide anything, dude was heading over immediately.

If Ryan had any vision at all he would have noticed Troy immediately, any elite or above average QB would have seen him and it highlights how mediocre Ryan will be throughout his career.

I agree. The safety made a play that only he could make. If you watch the replay, as soon as the ball is snapped, Troy SPRINTS to the side line to make the interception. There is no way any quarterback is thinking about the safety even being anywhere near this play. Troy was playing over the top help for the corner. He took a huge risk in vacating his area of responsibility and made an incredible play.

I watched this play unfold frame by frame. Here are some notes I took on that play:

1. Shotgun Formation - Time from snap til throw = 1.6 seconds

2. #92, James Harrison was lined up off-sides - it wasn't called, but I wonder if they saw that and expected it to be? Just curious - not looking for excuses.

3. Clabo was being pushed into Ryan as he was throwing - the pocket had collapsed.

He was stepping up but was not set - his right foot was still dragging. If he hadn't released then - he would have been hit - possibly sacked.

4. Roddy slowed down on the comeback. This is the second time I've seen him do that -once during the preseason. Very un-Roddy like - not sure what happened. When he realized Polamalu was coming across - he stepped it up - too late. Frankly, I'm not sure he could have beaten Troy anyway the way he was moving.

5. Troy made an amazing - but typical for him - play. He absolutely owned that interception - and earned every credit for it.
