So, on to Denver for more "football moves" and other entertainment.

Oh, and never let it be said that the Steelers don't give you your money's worth. ;-)
An NFL "football move" ................PING
2 or 3 times during each playoff year I see something that makes me think the whole thing is fixed. That overturned call was one of them.
I hate the Steelers.
(in memory of Carson Palmer's playoff appearance)
Good luck to your Steelers against Denver.
although, you better hope that they change up the ref teams form the Denver-Pats game...talk about having their heads up their a$$es....absolutely pathetic weekend for the zebras in ALL games. Instant Replay is a waste if you cannot correct what happened on the field.
Steeler (take a knee) ................... ping.
I'm a Colts fan and thought this might be our "tuck rule" moment.It was pure BS.But, ultimately we didn't take full advantage of it.What I have noticed in these playoffs is referees and crews that I wouldn't necessarily rate in the top 5 or so getting these games.Why?
I am under the impression that she may have been somewhat right. At least it sometimes seems well "arranged".
And she knew Art Rooney.
The officiating in all of these games has been putrid. New England got ripped off on that interference call in the endzone, as an example.
My husband and I were going nuts! If Troy had just stayed down after his roll, it would have been an int. Plain and simple. How it could be ruled incomplete after he caught it, had possession and started to move is still puzzling.
Of course, after Peyton was sacked and we were trying to punch it in, I was saying to my hubby how I felt bad for Coach Dungee. Then the Bus fumbled and my hubby blamed it on me for feeling bad for them (mimicking me in a girly voice). LOL!! I recanted my feeling bad for them and after they missed the FG and we won (the game safely over), I stated that I could once again feel bad for Dungee.
Explain it yourself then!
$hit happens and you KNOW it was not a purposeful hit !
Many people hate the Steelers because they are so damn good . They probably have the biggest following in the USA. Every stadium you go to has mucho Steelers fans whether or not they have recently won a super bowl, and now they are trying influence home teams to not sell tickets to Steeler fans so the towels won't be seen on TV .
I saw that on the news with the interviews of the ticket sellers being instructed to not sell to 'Burgh fans. I think I saw an interview with the owner admitting it also!! At least the ticket people have the sense to say screw you, whoever has the money goes to the game!!
Even Browns fans like me thought the Steelers were screwed. That was a brutal reversal.
I hate the Steelers, but they kicked the crap out of the Colts.
Yes. As I saw it ........... Troy caught the ball cleanly ........rolled over........ then, when getting up to do his thing (a certain FOOTBALL MOVE ---BARF), he kneed the ball out of "his own possession".......... the ball squrited onto the ground.........where he recovered his own fumble.
Plain and simple.
"I'm glad the NFL rule book is a living, breathing document! The 9th circuit is officiating today ;)"
Is there some obsucre rule that says after the defender makes the reception (from what I saw it was a clear reception, he did not trap the ball on the ground)rolls on the ground, gets up and one of his legs kicks the ball loose, it's incomplete. Let's face it, if this had been the offensive receiver that did this, of course it would have been a reception, no questions asked.
Right on ............ see post 11.
LOL........ thank God for Pittsburgh.
Bill (Cowher)........... now it's time to take a knee!
