Wasn't there an incidental contact rule that prevented the PI call if the defender is going for the ball. I don't hear that called anymore. I could see if a player is blatently interfering. I would like to see the players jockying around each other, making a little contact to get a better position on the ball.

If you saw the postgame press conference (which, well, most of you understandably didnt) Smith admits as much. He said he saw the flag out of the corner of his eye, at which point he gave him a "nudge". Thats exactly how he got that open.

Which for me is not bad presence of mind for a rookie, and for you is blatant OPI.

That call likely has decided the division champ. That's just a fact. 1 horrible call by the refs and the Ravens will likely win the division because of it. Yet there's no out rage from anyone?

I don't care if you are a steeler fan or not. Other then Raven fan, the rest of the NFL should be irate that it's likely a division was decided by a ref and NOT the players on the field. That sucks no matter who you are cheering for.

Shouldn't have come to that in the first place. Don't be a Seahawks fan.

Seahawk fan was crying about a bunch of calls that were actually correct. The few questionable calls in that game didn't decide it. Big difference. His blatant push off allowed him to catch the winning TD w/ 9 seconds on the clock.

Yea had other opportunities to put the dagger in. But every opportunity counts... as much as the play that decided the game.

lol... you think balt is done shitting the bed like they did vs TENN, JAX, & AZ? they think they already secured a SB berth. they wont even show up in seattle and get their asses handed to them. They will lose to the chargers, and atleast once to cincy.

all the steeler gotta do is win out and the division and #1 seed in the playoffs is theirs

Baltimore WILL lose 2 more this season & we may not lose another. Mark my words.

i laugh at the steelerfans who have more faith in baltimore than the black and gold. they actually think the refs are gonna keep bailing the ratbirds out by giving them 3 - 4 pass interference flags in the endzone every game.
