Ramblings

Just a few thoughts that popped up while watching yesterdays loss:

Does Tomlin have some sort of three year plan that he is following for the future makeup of the team.  eg when he was hired he was quoted to the effect that a team can't be changed overnight.  Last year he drafted heavily on defense and now the defense is great.  This year he drafted for offense and special teams, the offense has not developed well (injury, learning curve, etc) but the special teams unit (despite Sepulveda's loss is much better.  The hope is that if this theory is correct, their will be a big improvement in the  offense next year.

While BA did have some moments yesterday, their were many times he used the "SOS" or "hey diddle diddle and Rogel up the middle" method.  Especially with a back, who is "smallish" in weight, eg why not use Harris or McHugh.  He seems to be so unpredictable when doesn't need to be and so predictable when he shouldn't be.

Has anybody noticed the "excessive" slipping on the Heinz Field turf, no matter who is playing, pro or college.  It is my feeling that this subject will continue to occur until a definitive study on injuries and sliding is done or the turf is changed.  From the number of injuries that have occurred, no decreased injury count because of a natural is evident.

Any comments?
