Very good game!

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

Re: STEELERS!

that INT by Polamalu (sp?) should not have been overturned, that was total crap.

How the hell did Vanderjagct miss that field goal by so much.

Seahawks all the way. if I can't root for the home team I'm gonna root for the home town boy (Hasselbeck)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: STEELERS!

CBR929RE: I couldn't agree more reference the INT. Boomer even said it was a terribly blown call during post-game (and he's a Bengal). So too was the lousy non-call on the long pass play to Randall El in the 2nd quarter.

ratdog: I was sure we were going to overtime. Vanderjat's got a huge leg, so the distance wouldn't have been an issue. He's an accurate kicker...I was shocked (and happy as hell!) he pushed it wide right. Whew.

bubba: c'mon bro, Bettis hasn't fumbled once all year. I agree, this was the wrong time for his first one, lol, but the Colts wouldn't even have had the chance to kick that game timing field goal w/o his flub.

Anyway, the Steelers outplayed and outcoached the Colts all night long. They played physical football all night. Ben made the passes he had to make. Special teams played well. The total package.

It should be a war at Invesco next weekend...

Re: STEELERS!

he picked one helluva time to have his first one. i just breathed a sign of relief when they got the ball on the 2. i thought all they have to do is hold on to the ball and run it. BAM Bettis fumbles

Re: STEELERS!

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I'd have to say the Steelers/Colts game was the worst though.
examples: the INT overturned, the pass interference non-call, and the Faneca false start where the whole Colts line jumped over and the ref basically decided on a mulligan

just as the commentators said "I didn't know you could just not make a call"

Bad reffing pisses me off more than bad play.

They did get the one play right where the guy dove for the pillon and the ball came out of his hand.

+1

I totally forgot about the encroachment no-call. Nice one OSIRIS.

Re: STEELERS!

Where to start? Yes, although I hate the Steelers, they played excellent defensive football. Analyst commented that Peyton and their fined tuned offense cannot handle smash mouth blitzing teams, it seems that any bump in the Colt's timing offense and they're lost. Not to mention they were rusty and only started playing Colts football in the 4th quarter.

The refs? I haven't seen a more pathetic excuse of officiating than this weekend.

Yes, Polulomanunammama deserved the interception, unbelievable overturn.
Ward grabs Harper's facemask and he's pulling on it for 10 yards but Harper gets called for the 15 yarder personal foul facemask? Horrible.
Randal El no call.
The encroachment call - Pittsburg's left tackle DID flinch. Was it enough to draw the Colts? Maybe, maybe not, but the same call went against the Colt's left tackle for barely moving (or just breathing). What makes the "mulligan" so idiotic is the timing. Pittsburg is trying to run the clock down because the Colts started to regain their offense. It's the 4th quarter, it's 4th down and an inch to go. The call SHOULD have been false start against Pittsburg and resulted in a 4th and 5 yards. Now it's questionable if Cowher would have gone for it, not 4th and 5 in my opinion. The mysterious no call eventually gave the Steelers a first down (questionable spot again) and ran off 5 more minutes of 4th quarter play. Horrible.

Jerome Bettis' last play as a Steeler almost made him the biggest goat in Steeler History. I've NEVER seen a team only need to run a play (on the 2 yard of all places) and end a game and fumble it for almost the game winner. (Although I think the Eagles did that one year, returned it for the game winner).

As far as Rothlisberger tackling Harper for the game saving tackle, I couldn't believe it. Like Ben said, "the one time Bettis fumbles and the one time I can actually tackle a cornerback happened on the same play".

And then there's Vanderchoke. He pointed towards the Steelers bench when they called timeout to freeze him. He got cocky and choked. That was pathetic. He's one of the best kickers and he choked.

Steelers deserved it, but it was an ugly ugly game. Peyton and the Colts lose yet another playoff game (6 now?).

Oh well. The officiating sucked bad in ALL 4 GAMES!

The only league that doesn't hire full time officials.
