The grade would have been an A+ on all fronts, but Bruce Arians brings this grade down.
The offensive play calling in the was horrendous. Arians basically fed Ben to the dogs. No slants, draws, dump offs to the running back, out routes, nothing.
All of that stuff would have neutralized the blitz, but they weren't called.
On the other hand, the offense did put up 31 points and against the Ravens no less. Arians did get creative with some fake end-arounds that Mendenhall took for big gains. With that, I can't be too hard on him.
Dick LeBeau called a great game despite the first-half performance. That was mainly on the defense not executing and tackling well. Boy, did he turn up the heat in the second half.
He threw blitz after blitz at Flacco and it worked, as Flacco folded like a lawn chair. Also props to LeBeau for choosing to blitz on the last drive on the game instead of play coverage.
Last but not least, Mike Tomlin. I don't know what he said to his men at halftime, but boy did it spark a fire. The Steelers came roaring back from a 14-point deficit to win the game when all looked lost.
With this win, there is no doubt, that Tomlin should win Coach of the Year. All season long, he has kept the Steelers focused no matter what came their way.
Today, it was leading a massive comeback and doing some serious reshuffling on the offensive line after both tackles went out. What more can Tomlin do?
