jesus.. look at that remaining schedule.. sure would be nice for SD to beat them here since they may only lose one more game this season.

Colts turn the Rivers fumble into points. Manning throws a TD in 4th and Goal. 17-10 Colts.

In actuality, the outcome of this game doesn't really have any bearing on the Steelers, unless Indy catches up to Tennesee in the South. They needed the Rats and Jets to lose today and they didn't. Pittsburgh is still in control of their own destiny, they just don't have much room for error is all. Especially with the Jets having a cupcake schedule down the stretch.

On the whole, out of all the AFC teams, Pittsburgh has the toughest road to the playoffs.

No urgency by SD at all - they wasted a LOT of time down near the goalline getting that score considering they need TWO scores, not one. :dang:

It actually has quite a bit of bearing ont he Steelers. If the Ravens catch and beat us, the Colts have the tie-breaker against us in a head to head. So we need them to lose, just in case.

I am not sure WHY they even got THAT spot.

Agreed - he looked to be at LEAST a yard short.

That was a GREAT route.

He basically used the ref to run a pick play.

I wanna see a block and the ball taken back the other way

It sure is a strange year.

Just a couple games either way, and we are either out of the playoffs, or have homefield advantage throughout.

Usually, there is more separation at this point.

anybody see that fumble ruled an incomplete pass? :mad:

Yeah. SD got screwed on a bad, unreviewable call by the refs AGAIN.

How did they let Harrison get as open as he was on that crossing route.

SD had a chance to make the playoffs with Denver blowing it at home, but they let it slip away. Not a good game at all.

Kind of wonder about that Marty S firing. 14-2 and he was fired. Norv...2nd year, complete waste of LT's talent.

I can't stand games that end the way last night's did. It pretty much exemplifies the NFL's descent into shittiness over the past 10 years or so.

Instead of Joe Montana driving 90 yards for the winning touchdown, you have Peyton Manning or Tom Brady driving 30 yards and then sitting on the ball for a crappy field goal as time runs out, and the entire end of the game is interrupted constantly as they review every play upstairs. Their next-to-last scoring drive doesn't happen because of clutch fourth-quarter play, it happens because they get bailed out on third-and-long by phantom pass interference calls (or, just as often, roughing the passer). The star running back or receiver isn't the hero at the end of the game; it's the f***ing kicker.

And those are the kinds of teams the NFL glorifies as the cream of the crop these days? Watching that kind of crap is not appealing at all.

Norv Turner has the IQ of a turnip. Calling a timeout so Peyton has 90 seconds to get into FG range? :doh:
