Default Refs brutal on one drive

I know Refs make msitakes bit did it not appear that the Refs were trying to get the Browns back in the game with the bogus calls on Mcfaden, and Farriror (didn't even show a replay..)
Also I watch very closely and many of the spots seemed questionable at best.

Steelers are warriors this game to battle the weather, road crowd and the Zebras was fantastic. Not too many times I have been prouder of a victory on the road.

The McFadden call was bogus. It could have easily been called on the receiver. The Farrior call, heck, I mean it's a division rivalry game for cryin' out loud.

We won, even against all the odds.

The one glaring discrepency was Woodley getting called for a late hit on Anderson, then a couple series later, Rogers drops Ben after that 3rd down pass was gone.

Refs gotta call it consistently and not just a late hit on one side.

Browns suck, hope Ben and his shoulder are fine.

No doubt. The Zebras were horrible tonight. It seemed everytime the Steelers had momentum on offensive drives, there was a hold called or something. Sending the Steelers into Long yardage situations consistently.

Ben and the Offense were moving the ball well in awful weather.

People.

They blew two calls. They made some GOOD calls as well that other refs may have missed.

We are NOT the waahawks.

I agree. Fat baby got away with a late hit that didn't get called.

Pointing out 2 obvious blown calls does not mean they are whining. The roughing the passer calls on both ends were bad calls, plain and simple. A little consistency is all we ask for.
