Knee Jerk Reaction to the Steelers 16-10 loss to the Dolphins

Reflex reactions are immediate reactions to a situation without taking the time to analyze the situation. It’s something that we as sports fans usually do. Especially if you are a full-blooded Yinzer or even a part-Yinzer. As is customary, I compile my spontaneous thoughts and post them immediately after every Steelers game (my son Kyle might have a few things to say, too). It’s my version of leading my mouth first and apologizing later (or not). With that being said, I’m going to apply that philosophy here in week 7 of the NFL regular season. Time to rack up some wins!!!

1st quarter

  • Steelers win the toss and postpone. to kick Boswell.
  • Nice tackle from Maulet.
  • The Steelers then give up a first down on a second and 19 play.
  • Yes, the zone doesn’t look very good.
  • Kyle is pissed that the Steelers don’t recognize the run fakes, but the bigger problem is the soft zone played in the secondary.
  • And the Steelers give up the touchdown pass. The offensive will play from behind. Dolphins 7, Steelers 0.
  • Is anyone surprised it was just a first down handoff?
  • Kyle asked, since we brought back the Swiss cheese zone, let’s bring back the double R double P… and the offense does. Run, run, pass, stab.
  • And that was an awful punt from Big Press.
  • And again, the Dolphins are taking up big yards and throwing to the middle of the field.
  • This one will get out of control really fast. I thought the Buffalo game was getting out of hand fast. This one will be there soon.
  • The Steelers managed to keep them out of the touchdown zone. Field goal makes it Dolphins 10, Steelers 0.
  • Play Claypool Trips on the pass and the pass is intercepted by the Dolphins. Does not look good.
  • Wow, another guy wide open in the middle of the field.
  • I needed the trapping there.
  • The Dolphins have accumulated points for all three of their possessions. The Steelers have two possessions and are yet to make a first down. Dolphins 13, Steelers 0.
  • Yay! The Steelers finally got a first down.
  • End of first quarter Dolphins 13, Steelers 0.

2nd quarter

  • Steelers make it on the 4th and under a yard. Warren manages to nullify the first down.
  • The drive stables for the Steelers and Boswell comes up to try to score. Dolphins 13, Steelers 3.
  • The Steelers defense is actually lucky with a couple of passes that could have been caught and will go off the field.
  • The first throw 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage loses 4 yards.
  • Nice pitch and catch after Pickens.
  • That wide receiver run by Matt Canada went nowhere and pulled a penalty.
  • Outside runs to the short side just never seem to work.
  • Have a good run Kenny.
  • Najee looks more like a Najee.
  • George Pickens is amazing! Dolphins 13, Steelers 10.
  • How about a 32-yard gain down the middle on the first down?
  • Kyle says…… “Swiss cheese” about the Steelers defense.
  • Cam Sutton should have been caught!
  • Due to the missed interception, the Dolphins get a shot at a field goal to end a half. It’s good and the Dolphins have a 16-10 lead.

3rd quarter

  • Not a great start for the Steeler offense as they lose a yard on the first down and Pickett is fired on the second down.
  • Nice three point and out through offense to start the second half. That was sarcasm if you couldn’t say it.
  • Another 20-plus-yard pass plays into the middle.
  • The Dolphins will try on the 4th and three in the 20. The Steelers stuff it and take over.
  • Steelers pick you up first, but that’s it and they’ll knock him back.
  • How about Terrell Edmonds dropping an interception.
  • The dolphins will end up going three and out and will return it.
  • Steelers called out for an ineligible receiver in downfield. You’ve had a lot of those calls this year.
  • In the very next play, Diontae is challenged for offensive pass interference. This drive is going in the wrong direction.
  • The penalties killed that drive and the Steelers will punt. I wish we would see an insult from the Steelers like we did towards the end of last week’s game.
  • Defense keeps them on three and out again. The offense needs to get some points on the board.
  • skirt to the naj.
  • end of the third quarter. Dolphins 16, Steelers 10.

4th quarter

  • On the third and one, the Steelers pass it straight to Najee, who is just returning to the line of scrimmage. I would have loved to see Kenny sneak it in there. Big Press to Punt.
  • Defense is holding the Dolphins AGAIN, but offense needs to score.
  • And the offense does not oblige, goes three and out at once.
  • Nice punt by Presley Harvin.
  • What can I say? The defense has really taken it from the first quarter. You only need offense to earn enough points to win the game. Steelers get the ball back.
  • Offensive looks a little better.
  • Pickett and Claypool disagreed.
  • Claypool gets it on the 3rd and 10th
  • Another first down to Claypool.
  • Steelers have a 3rd and a 1st and are called out on an illegal shift and now have a 3rd and a 6th.
  • And now they’re called to hold Dan Moore, so it’s now 3rd and 16th.
  • The offense was in field goal range by the third and 16th game and Pickett throws a bad interception.
  • Another dropped interception. That could have been 4 interceptions, but the Steelers actually have zero.
  • Pickett gets a chance to be the hero with 2 minutes and 31 seconds left on the clock.
  • Seven yards per throw won’t give the Steelers the nearly 90 yards they need to win this game.
  • All the short throws… not making it.
  • Nice move by Diontae to get the first one and get out of the game.
  • Pickett is caught in the end zone. Game over.
  • Dolphins 16, Steelers 10. Defense played well enough to win and offense again failed to play supplementary football.
