Steelers Post-Gazette beat writer Ed Bouchette joined the FAN Morning show after the Steelers lost to the Saints on Halloween night. Ed was baffled that the Steelers didn’t at least try a QB sneak when the ball was on 1-yd line. Ed told Gregg that the Steelers prepared for the noise, but some player said it was louder than normal. Ed also told the guys that he doesn’t think the Steelers will be a consistent running team.
Ed thinks the team panicked when the team went for it in the 4th quarter on the 40 with 4 yards to go. He thought the team should have punted the ball especially when the team was only down by 3.
Ed also talked about the bad officiating in this game and some penalties are seen but never called in the NFL.
