here is a picture showing a redskins' defender trying to get to BR. you tell me if a penalty should have been called. after all, farrior was called for helmet to helmet.

Yes, I do remember that segment, and it was a great one. And yes, a penalty definitely should have been called on that play if the ref was paying attention and/or cared about consistency. He was neither, plus it's Ben we're talking about, so as expected, there was no flag.

definately a penalty. i also remember the shawn rodgers hit on Ben earlier in the season. both non-calls, but you know what? we beat both of them so who cares.

I believe this was the play HInes drew the 45yd pass interference call, but they could have easily added the extra 15. Yes, penalty. They took out the 5yd so the officials wouldn't need to interpret the rule, so I don't know what the problem is...:mad:

right, let's never talk about steelers' history. even if it's a game that took place 2 days ago.

C'mon Dude, Farriors hit was much more vicious, that guy's just adjusting Bens helmet.

BTW, I miss the old, and I mean old MNF!

It's Ben Roethlisberger we're talking about here. Of course they're not going to throw a flag.

I'm with you guys on this one hands down. The refs and league protect every qb except if your name is Ben Roethlisberger. It is sad but true.

Love the Alcoa spots. Makes me wanna "have a Coke and a smile" or see if Bill Cosby has any Jell-O pudding.
