Default Enough with the complaining already!

This is embarassing now...Pittsburgh sounds like the Bungles and all their whining.

You lost the game. Be a man and move on.

The defense was asked to make a stop late in the game. Once again, just like in Denver, New York, and the first Jax game, they couldn't do it. End of story. Like I said in another thread, leave the bitching about referees to Holmgren and the pantywaist Squawk fans - that's much more their speed.

We had 60 minutes to get the job done and couldn't do it. There will always be questionable calls. Sometimes they work for you and sometimes they go against you. Bottom line: you just have to take care of business during those 60 minutes.

I refuse to believe that the refs caused us to lose that game. They may have missed a call or two, but that happens every game and you have to account for that.

The Steelers lost because they played a terrible 1st half, gave up two easy touchdowns, and didn't play more than 1 and 1/2 quarters of good football.

It is time to move on, but it still stings.

all of the problems we had in the regular season came all together and ended our season in this game. the final 2 minute defense, the special teams, undisciplined defense on the MJD touchdown, inconsistent running game, poor oline play, and we had yet another comeback attempt fall short.

i have issues with you telling us to stop complaining, when you are a top team in the NFL you expect to win THOSE games, in which i mean the games where how they play and how you play already gives you an advantage, and we have failed to do that 6 times this year. broncos were a wrecked team, cardinals were improving but their defense shouldnt hold us to 14pts, jets game was probably the worst one ive seen in a long time, the ravens game could of been won with our backups, the 2 jags games was a running team vs the best runstopping team those should of been wins. i didnt mention the pats game because they expose our weakness and that is the spread offense through the air. as most seen in the OSU vs LSU game spread offense dominates zone coverage. i think their is a lot to be sour about so i think it is ok to complain, hopefully we wont have to next season.

I think the OP was referring to guys like Foote complaining about the officiating in the Wild Card game against Jax and that they need to shut it already, and frankly, I agree. Like I said earlier, let pansies like Holmgren squawk about the refs, it's beneath the Steelers to do that.

I don't like to use the refs as an excuse, especiallly since we did have other opportunities to win the game. The fact is though that there were some questionable calls; a bad call is a bad call.
Who's complaining, we're discusing; thats what chat rooms are for.

Not to mention the NON Call against Ward for a face mask that lead to a pass interference penalty that gave us a first and goal and allowed us to score a TD.

Just saying...refs don't lose games...60mins to get it done.

Be up 28-10 with 1 minute left, refs can call whatever the Fck they want and you'll still win the game.
