Oh quit whining, Ziggy's going to be a helluva player.

its insane how some of you try to make excuses for a loss. if you want to blame the loss on Oher being a second early then why not talk about Gay's pass interferance. that would of given the ravens 1st and goal.

we all still tear up on Seahawk fans for making excuses to why they lost to us in the super bowl and now were doing the exact same thing

baltimore played really well and Flacco did a great job picking our secondary apart. if Ben was there im sure it would of been a much different game but he wasnt.

Oher's penalty preceeded that play, that play never happens if Oher's illegal procedure call is called as it should have been. Besides interference is subjective, just like holding is. No one's bitching about the suspect holding call against Heath Miller that destroyed an earliar drive. But illegal procedure is cut and dried, if an offensive linemans movement preceeds the snap it's a penalty. sometimes the margin is razor thin and it's easy to see how it's missed. But on the play I've been discussing it was very pronounced, it's inexcusable that it was missed. Not offering any conspiracy theories or claiming bias, it was simply a poor job by the line judge on that play. I can't say it cost the Steelers the victory, but I can certainly say if it would have been called correctly every play from that point on would have been different.

Couple difference's. First we're( or at least I am) are making our observations on a Steelers message board. If I was going on an NFL site or a Ravens site and saying this perhaps it could be construed as whining? but even then I would beg to differ, because in the case of SB XL replay actually confirms all the calls were correct except for the penalty against Hasselback on the interception return. In this case for anyone who actually bothers to rewatch the game Oher most certainly did move early on the play that got the Ravens down to our 8 yard line.

]baltimore played really well and Flacco did a great job picking our secondary apart. if Ben was there im sure it would of been a much different game but he wasnt.
I've never claimed otherwise. I simply have stated that there were a few blown calls that went against us. It adds to the frustration level perhaps, but so what, I think you've got a 72 hour window to blow off steam after a loss. And that's all anyone is doing.

WTF Pete, it's a message board, we're fans, we're allowed to be imperfect.
