Default Re: After final further review it is 2 plays that lost the SuperBowl

My two plays were the two penalties in the kick game that killed us with bad field position at crucial times of the game. And the thing is neither penalty aided the play in any way. I've watched Mundy's block in the back about 50 times, and while there's no doubt it was a legitimate call, there's also no doubt on my part that Antoine Brown would have still advanced the ball to the 43 yard line if Mundy never makes contact there, as the Packer defender took a terrible angle on the play and had already run himself out of any chance of making the tackle.

If we get the ball at the 43 as we should have ( without Mundy's stupidity, I'm not blaming the ref) that pick 6 likely never happens.

And of course I think the lack of field position on our last offensive series factored into how poorly we performed with the ball there.

see, i dont buy into those being as impactful as ben missing the easiest read he had all night and throwing an interception that woulda been a TD for any other great qb that made it to a SB.

can ANYBODY name me the 2 penalties in SB XXX that helped lose it vs. dallas? nobody remembers those. people only remember niels 2 ints in regards to us giving away the game

with mundys penalty im still pretty sure bruce woulda called the same scripted play. ben still probably woulda been hit, and collins still probably woulda returned it for a TD (this time for 90 yds instead of 40). the piss poor effort our offense gave in trying to make a tackle, im convinced an int woulda been returned any distance.

as for fox's penalty. it had no bearing on the outcome of the game. the previous sb, the steelers overcame not only a safety, but a penalty that backed them up to almost the same position on their last ditch effort drive.

the steelers inability to gain 5 yards for a 1st down on 3 consecutive plays is what killed them. it woulda killed them at the 40 yard line just as it did at the 30.

10% of the game is physical. 90% is mental. ben and matthews proved why.

We need a fullback with a number in the 30's. Not the 80's.

Ben missing a wide open Heath on his 2nd pick was inexcusable. You can get the read at the line on that play. If in doubt, look again because Heath is putting his hand up. How Ben misses that at this stage in his career is beyond me.

Is it bad that I STILL have a bad taste in my mouth about this game?

nope. 3rd and 5 woulda been the perfect opportunity to run the ball. we still had a time out when the game ended. i re-watched and looked and clay matthews was left in there to spy ben, its not guaranteed it woulda gone for a huge gain, but im almost certain we woulda atleast got the 1st down, and possibly broke a big one.

in the final series vs the jets, rex ryan admitted he never expected the steelers to throw the ball on that final 3rd and 6 before we iced the game.

the packers woulda never expected a run on that 3rd and 5.
