Steelers had to beat the darn refs, too.
1. I really like Coach Dungy and did want to see him win
2. Rush will ramble on about two segments about it.
Jerome Bettis = most relieved man on the planet today..

By the time Rush gets back next week, it will be old news.
Indy starting to get a reputation for choking.
Hats off to PITT. Good Team. Great Coach. Great Quarterback.
That Pats have a much better case for beating the refs. Like literally
That defense pass interference call was the absolute worst I have seen in a while
It was karma that the Colts missed that last FG. A bit of poetic justice.
I watched the game from CBS. Those commentators were totally biased for the Colts. They are supposed to be showing the game for ALL the fans. Those CBS fools can't even present a football game correctly. Eventually I just turned off the annoying idiots and listened to music instead.
His best play was saving a touchdown when The Bus coughed up the ball.
I know what you mean, but the NFL won't do that. They will just lose control if all the refs start coming under that much scrutiny.
Rather than being corrupt or on the take or something (which I don't think they are), it is just human nature. Refs always seem to get influenced by the crowd. They just can't help it. Their calls for the home team get huge cheers that rock the stadium, and the calls for the visiting team receive profanity and boos.
The refs like positive reinforcement.
I think that will be seen as THE play of the game....Roethlisbergers tackle. Go Big Ben!
And I only needed them to cover the point spread.
I wonder if Ben could have tackled Harper, had Harper's wife not stabbed him in the leg less than 24 hours earlier!
I think Pitt out coached the Colts & outplayed them. For the 1st 3 quarters the Colts really did not know what Pitt was giving them on the defensive side.
Had the refs made the correct calls the score would have been 24 to 10 Pittsburgh's favor. For those who did not see the game it really was NOT as close as the score shows. BUT the Steelers did all most blow it.
The football gods gave it to the right team!!!
"Steelers had to beat the darn refs, too."
That "incomplete pass" call was just so completely WRONG!!
And the "color commentators" that cbs had on were just so completely biased towards the Colts that it was sickening! Thank goodness that cbs was true to form, i.e. they never get anything right!
As of this point this weekend, I'm 100% on my picks. Let's see if da Bears (still Suck!) can keep my record intact.
I was right about the Colts not going undefeated or winning the super bowl...but i wish i was wrong
Testify. That lousy officiating wasn't fair to EITHER side.
