I'm pointing the blame right at Suggs, Ellerbe and Kemoeatu. All three had the opportunity to hustle and make the tackle, but they all pull up expecting Corey Graham and Pollard to cleanup on the sideline, only Graham gets blocked and Pollard misses.

Where was the hustle? we just made the most immobile QB look like Cam Newton, he even lost his balance while running and fell over in the goalline. Embarrassing.

Pollard deserves some blame for a poor attempt at a tackle - it is his job, after all; he's a safety... He atoned for it later

Hate to say it but it was mostly Sizzle, he was supposed to keep contain and he tried to make a big play early and stunted back inside. Pollard also missed the tackle on him down the sidelines going for the big hit. Sloppy play but we held firm and didn't allow another Td the rest of the night, I'll take it.

... and, after that, the Ravens defense played their best game, tonight; back-up quarterback-or-whatever...

They couldnt do crap! :) Hope Kurt Warner is right and that we go back into the top 10 by the end of the year

Dude, what? Keep contain? He was rushing from the opposite side... Leftwich scrambled on the opposite side from where Suggs lined up

No, my post was actually 100% on point I just rewatched it on NFL.com

Sizzle is rushing from the same side Leftwich scrambles to, Sizzle stunts inside instead of keeping contain thus opening up that lane down the sideline,

I couldnt believe Suggs was behind him and pretty much gave up on pursuit when he saw Pollard coming up to lay the wood. Im sure any player would have done the same but if Sizzle stayed with it, we would have won 13-3

I don't mind the Pollard miss it happens and you can't make every single tackle. What I didn't like was the complacency, Ray and the Ravens of old would have swarmed at him relentlessly and he wouldn't have stumbled his way into the endzone.

Well, we still won so theres that :D.

Thankfully, that was the BIGGEST play they gave up to Leftwich. I'd chalk it up as a novelty fluke. Leftwich hasn't seen the light of the NFL day in forever, so they didn't know what to expect.

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

It seemed like everyone expected him to just jog out of bounds when he got to the sideline and gave up on it rather than finishing the play. No one wants to get called for unnecessary roughness down there.

Suggs is not up to full speed, as is to be expected since he should not be playing until next year with his injury, and there is no real film on Lefty since he played for the Bucs. What is important is it didn't happen again

Its all good. We won. Think Suggs was moving as fast as he could there. Remember, he is not 100% yet.

My mistake. Still, that looked like a designed stunt, where Suggs stunts in and the DT loops out.

Did anyone else think that Pittsburgh celebrated like they won the game after scoring that touchdown? Or is it just me?
