Cowher choosing to kick the field goal on 4th and goal from the 2.

I've been discussing this all day and really don't feel like typing out my thoughts,just not the right call IMO.

Not saying that the Steelers would or could have made the comeback but I feel Cowher deprived his team of that chance.

Yeah that was definitely a stupid call on Cowher's part. I guess my goof goes to him. Honorable mention to Peerless Price; wasn't running the right routs or showing any effort out there.

The Chin goofed all game. I think a bigger goof than that was his game plan. Wait...Bettis just ran another gut play for a half a yard gain. Brilliant!

Yeah I didn't like the FG call either. I know 11 points is technically two scores IF you get a 2 pt conversion.

Seems I think you gain a ton of momentum if you push it in there. I think he let New England off easy there.

At worst you give them horrible field possession, but are still 14 down. I think I would have preferred seeing him roll the dice there.

Jim Mora. Breaking that radio box costs money!


Seriously, though, it's tough. Vick and Roethlisberger both played very poorly, but I think it was more great defense than "goofs" on their part. I guess my only other choice is the field goal. Who needs originality?

not a single goof, but the Steeler's secondary get's my "goof of the week" Couple big plays (taking nothing away from nice routes and tosses from the Pats), and quite a few small plays on 3rd and 5's, loose coverage and poor tackling allowing for first downs, etc etc etc.
Best... fantasy advice... EVER. :D

I couldn't agree more -- kicking that stupid field goal. You could feel the air being sucked right out of Heinz field. One of the few times when the home team scored and took the fans right out of the game. It was disgusting.

Ben Roethlisberger for throwing 3 interceptions! He looked like Eli Manning's twin brother out there. :-t

Also Bill Belichick for holding a team meeting at 4am after they just got back from Pittsburgh.
