There was still a decent amount of time left on the clock. I didnt disagree with the decision based on field position, time remaining, and timeouts remaining, however based on the way our defense had been playing all day, I wouldn't have been upset at all if we decided to go for it. People are gonna complain either way when we lose though.

Which 4th and 2 are you talking about? I wanted us to go for the 4th and 2 and 4th and 3 inside PIT 10, instead of kicking FGs, simply because Matt was hitting 4-8 yards perfectly, and he was perfect in his last 12 attempts. The 4th and 2 to end the game could go either way.

I was, for one.

This time, I wanted Smith to gamble. Felt it in my bones we would lose if we didn't.

That's the problem...Smith don't trust the offense to execute. 2nd and short, 3rd and short or 4th and short...wrong play-calling, line not blocking, you name. They find a way to get it wrong and put the defense right back on the field. It's happened for years now.

Yes I was hoping that we would, but knew Mike Smith didn't have the balls to do so. Although I dislike Tomlin, he showed that he had a pair when he went for it on 4th down and made a gutsy play call. Hellz would freeze over before Smith would make that call.

When did they go for it on a 4th, I don't remember that.

Good point, and I agree. Knowing this team toward the end of the game, I truly felt the need to gamble on getting the first down at that point.

I really felt they (Steelers) would drive the ball down our throats on final possession.

Man I hate loving our team

Count me in as a yes! Just what does Mike Smith feel has caused his lack of faith in the offense, when it has shown time and again that his timid approach for whatever reason the last two years has not produced enough points to win!? Was it Turner three years ago not getting those 4 and 1's that has jaded him? What a pu. Zz
