I hadn't seen this article, posted on here, or otherwise, until now.  Jiminy Crickets!!!!!!!  At least we know someone, besides MGS'ers, and someone above Tomlin see's this, AND, thinks it's an issue.  Tomlin may see it, but he can't come out and say:  My offensive game plan week to week is pretty lousy and I can't get that dumb f*ck Arians to clear the fog in his head and actually put together a cohesive game plan.

I love what Joe says about doing what you need to do when you need to.  I think that is exactly the opposite of how Tomlin, and Cowher too for that matter, coaches.  We do "insert here" well, so that's what we are going to do against every opponent and impose our will.  Except, of course, when it works, then we'll switch it up so they don't get wise to it.  That'll show em.

Maybe Joe can mentor Tomlin, a lot.

When New England played the [Baltimore] Ravens [in the AFC championship game], had they continued trying to throw the football, they would have lost it. They decided they had to run it, but they couldn't line up and show you they were going to run it, they had to look like they were going to throw the pass, and that's when they ran the ball on them. And that allowed them to score a couple touchdowns.

Quote
Greene blamed the Steelers loss Nov. 6 to Baltimore on the offense's inability to run the clock with the lead. The Ravens drove 92 yards in the final two minutes to score the winning touchdown with eight seconds left, 23-20. He also noted that, even in the regular-season finale at Cleveland, the Browns were throwing desperation passes with a chance to win at the end, chances Greene believes they would not have had if the offense had used the clock better.

Mean Joe is obviously on crack.

I don't disagree with what MJG is saying...generally.

However, it's not really surprising that a defensive guy throws a lot of the issues that Pittsburgh had at the feet of the offense. 

I mean, using the last Baltimore game as a basis for your argument isn't the best approach, Joe.  Yeah, it would've been great if Pittsburgh could've closed that one out taking a knee, but they didn't.  That doesn't give the defense a free pass in allowing Joe fucking Flacco to drive Baltimore 92 yards, converting several 3rd downs along the way, for the game winning TD.  A TD that they actually had two cracks at getting if Smith doesn't drop that first pass that hit him right on the hands.

Who's to blame there, Joe? 

Who's to blame for allowing the Second Coming to throw for over 300 YDS+ in Denver on Wildcard Weekend?

Cuts both ways, bruh.

True.  Our 2011 defense didn't seem to throw the fear into opponents.

Rush D was softer, didn't hassle QBs like previous years, TO ratio was horrendous (total flip from 2010).

Hoping some of the young blood changes that.

It was the weakest 12-4 team I've ever seen.

No, dude.  You're thinking of "Have some coke and a 15 year old prostitute".
