I can't speak for everyone else but I know that although I still have a sour taste in my mouth from the loss to the Crows, I just want to look forward to the bye week by reading steelers news, any videos of the team, and posting here about valid topics which gain my attention.

The only way the refs MAY have cost us the game is the NON calls on Oher for jumping off sides several times!!!

Anyone besides me see Flacco as having got away with intentional grounding on the play that preceeded the fg at the end of the first half? Flacco's in the tackle box, is getting late pressure from Keisel, and tosses it 20 yards over the nearest receivers head. It wasn't an overthrow, it's pretty clear he was just getting rid of the ball.

Anyway if it's called you move back their kicker 6-7 yards, and he's pretty awful kicking from further than 35 yards out.

Not using it as an excuse, but it's a debatable play and I'm simply asking if others saw that particuliar call( or non call) the same as I did?

I look at it this way...there's a very good chance that both teams got away with some shit. The refs don't see everything. I don't like trying to look at missed calls or blown calls as the reason they (or any other team) lost. The Steelers missed a lot of good opportunities to put the game away and didn't take them. Can't rely on the refs to win the game for you, and can't rely on them to not lose the game for you, so all this speculation is pointless in my mind.

Were there a few missed calls? Yes, most likely there were. Are those missed calls the reason they lost? Nope, not at all.

That might be the dumbest thread ever started. The Ravens did not have Jeff Reed to kick the field goal so they would've definitely nailed it.

Unless we loan them Jeff Reed and then we win. Ha ha

We lost the game because: The O could not get one first down, the D could not hold them one last time, we committed 12 penalties (3 by the O when we were on the goal line) Wake up willie
