Front Office admits bad calls AGAIN!
 
NFL says officials made 2 wrong calls against Steelers
Friday, November 12, 2010
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Steelers have been informed by the National Football League that two penalties that almost cost them in Monday night's victory in Cincinnati should not have been called, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Coach Mike Tomlin sent a complaint to the league office earlier this week, challenging the roughing-the-passer penalty on nose tackle Casey Hampton and a pass interference penalty against cornerback Ike Taylor on back-to-back plays that allowed the Bengals to move to the Steelers 1 in the fourth quarter.

Two plays later, the Bengals scored on a 1-yard run by Cedric Benson to cut the Steelers lead to 27-21.

After Jeff Reed missed a 46-yard field goal that would have given the Steelers a nine-point lead, the Bengals drove to the Steelers 12 and had a chance to win the game until a fourth-down pass to rookie receiver Jordan Shipley was broken up by Taylor and linebacker James Harrison with 34 seconds remaining.

The league informed the Steelers the penalty against Hampton should not have been called because he hit quarterback Carson Palmer on the thigh, not below the knee or to the head, after an incomplete pass.

On the next play from the Steelers 21, Taylor was penalized for pass interference against Terrell Owens, a call that was made by the official in the back of the end zone, not the side judge who was right in front of the play on the left sideline. The league told the Steelers no penalty should have been called.

I wonder if Raven fans will read about this... But they probably wont believe it lol....

Kudos to Tomlin for writing to the league's offices.

Pfffft....that's because the refs and the league are always getting paid off to win games for the Steelers. :rolleyes:

Probably not as many as we get.

Of course if the Steelers would have lost the game this would be no consolation - the Hampton flag is yet another example of a ref throwing a flag anytime the QB gets hit

Both of those calls were BS.....TO cried until he got a flag, no way that was interference on Ike.

the ref on the Ike Taylor/T.O. play should be ashamed of himself.

If you're not "man" enough to make the right call and stand by it and you're that easily influenced by T. Owens gyrating and shaking like some ghetto hood that you have to "then" throw a flag, then take your dress off and turn in your resignation.
I saw that complete thing unfold as it happened and couldn't believe it.

for all those wrong calls the officials made, they missed two holding calls on the bungles...at least!
