Default What's with the ticky-tack calls!

How do you call either of those personal foul calls? Especially Ike Taylor's. Isn't the point of football to tackle the opponent with the ball until the whistle blows? Unneccesary roughness my ass!

Tackling is only illegal if WE do it. Just like fumbles only count if we do it, Cincy is allowed to fumble the ball apparently.

Of course, we've gotten these calls ever since the NE game, it's crap of course... but then again, Bengals will complain that CJ's touchdown was good and other calls, even though they lost by 2 touchdowns :P

Im afraid every physical team is getting these calls...its no Pittsburgh conspiracy.

As I said in the game thread - look no further than the leagues only unbeaten team if you want someone to blame for overprotection of offensive players...including QB's who you arent allowed to hit any more without a roughing the passer call....it makes for football ballet.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

When a player is out of bounds your not aloud to tackle them...........And you not aloud to spike the ball and throw a hissy fit.
