Wow... I am glad the team is handling the lose better then some of the fans... For anyone to say the refs lost the game for them I really have no advice other then watch like a lot more football and learn the sport a little more. The only call that can be a legite gripe is when Hassleback threw the ball the 1 yard line and it was called back for a hold call, but that is why OL are taught from the age of 5 to keep your hands on the INSIDE not the ouside. Regardless that was a bad call. Big Bens Touchdown was legit the very edge of the outermost part of the white line in the goal line and there is 0 doubt the ball crossed the plane. There is a great close-up photo I will post to put that issue to bed. The Offense PI call the negated a TD was a little spotty but is there anyone who watched the game and think the WR did not push off? Seriously, he pushed off no doubts about, as a ref do I make that call in the SuperBowl... hmm personally no I do not, but there was a rule infraction. The bottom line was Steelers made big plays and the Seahawks didn't. That is the name of the game Big Plays and solid Defense, Seattle had one of those last night. Anyone can play the what if game, what if Seattle got that one score, they kick to Pittsburgh and Radndle El takes it to the house, what if they get the ball at the 1 and score to tie the game then Pitt gets the ball and Fast Willie Parker takes another one for 75 yards. Seattle lost to a better team and did not do the things they had to do to win.
Also, as far as the refs cheated whines what about the constant holding by the RG of Seattle that never got called. Hampton was mugged all night, if there was blatant cheating there ya have it.
We got the 1 for thumb kids!!!!!!
