Last week against the Chargers, When Ben threw that deep ball to Nate in the endzone and PI was called on Weddle. The Steelers got the ball on the 1. I'm hearing from 1 Charger fan that that was a terrible call. Anybody have a vid so I can look at it again?

Yeah even the asshat CBS commentators agreed that was PI. Weddle clearly grabbed Nate's arm and pulled it down before the ball got there.

They looked over it during the broadcast and you can definately see Weddle grab the left arm. It was a good call.

i was reading the chargers board after the game and the general consensus from them was it was a good call.

Tell that Chargers fan to stop :crying01: and man up - the Steelers trounced the Chargers more than the score indicated. He needs to get over it and move on.

Some will still be crying this time next year. Remember the seadogs.

Why are Nate's eyes fixated on the girl in the stands and not the ball???


LOL...

here's the highlights....if you pause it at 5:46 , you can clearly see the contact before the ball gets there.

He also claims that that INT hit the ground. And if it wasn't for that lucky INT and some bad calls that they didn't lose that bad. I said that the last TD was garbage time TD but he still says that they scored 24.

It definitely screwed up any chance he had of catching the ball, so it's a penalty. Some people just seem to be under the impression that it's not PI unless the receiver blatantly gets his shit ruined. At least it's when it's their team doing the interfering.

Also, what was the score of that game again? I seem to remember we had our boot squarely on their neck the whole game except for a couple of garbage-time scores.

Good thing we play them at home next year, I'll be flying in to Pitt for that one!!!

It was definitely the right call. Personally I don't think he would've caught it anyways, but the defender was definitely interfering with the receivers body.

it was obv that weddle pulled nate's closet arm to the ball down so he couldn't catch it.. and then weddle had the ball knock him on the head
