.
Crocker lead with the shoulder and hit helmet to helmet in the follow thru. I instantly thought that if that was Ryan Clark on Housyourmama that there would be a fine.

It was a clean, hard hit and part of the game of football, but if you look back to when Clark got fined $7500 for hitting the Jags Matt Jones, it wasnt as bad. Crocker shouldnt get fined, but if the NFL wants to be consistent, he will at least get what Clark got.

BTW, Hipcrest isnt normally an A-hole to posters. I think you are getting a bit wound up and he is just enjoying the verbal sparring.

Ben's definitely a great teamate and leader.
Yeah, Ben is a great leader, but I bet he felt bad for hanging Santonio out to dry like that. I too saw the Keisel thing and that is expected as Keisel is his best friend on the team and was/is his roomate on the road.

Actually, I think it was being implied that if it was a Steelers player laying a hit like that, he would probably be fined by Goodell despite the hit being clean, since our players ARE being unfairly targeted, IMO, by the commissioner when it comes to fines this year. I don't think it was implied that the hit itself was dirty, just that the commissioner is a douche and is completely arbitrary and unfair when it comes to fining players.

First off Farrior did not get credit for the INT. He dropped it afterwords and they ruled it an incomplete pass.

That was Steeler football last night and everyone is stepping in to make plays and help the team out when their down.

Troy is Troy. Not surprised by his play last night he came in and made the first stuff on the first play and tried returning his INT for a TD at the end of the game and was pretty close to breaking after picking it off at the one.

Screw that. I want them to go 6-10, and Randy Moss to cry his way out of the league.

Farrior never had control of that and it wasnt an INT. It was Steeler football and there are no easy teams in the NFL, but ...........it was the one win Bengals.

Potsie and Troy both had big games and Aaron Smith was unsung as usual. The fact that the O line couldnt really grind down the Bengals D line is still a cause for concern. Peko pancaked Stapleton 3 minutes into the 2nd half.........it was embarrasing to watch!!!

exactly. glad some people get it. the clark hit on jones was the one i was thinking of.

I_Bleed_Black_And_Gold, the idea that im trolling you in the congratulatory thread i started celebrating a steelers win, is completely absurd, ESPECIALLY when newb comes in comparing me to a bungles fan.

damn skippy im gonna be an asshole.

i forgot to emphasize one...

17) the stat they threw up that the steelers have only allowed 9 points in the third quarter (fewest of any team in any quarter) is amazing. like they said, a true testament to d. lebeaus coaching and ability to make adjustments. im sure tomlin has a little something to do with it too.

You called it a "helmet to helmet" hit, which is illegal...so you implied that the hit was dirty. That is what made it appear that you were upset by the hit.

I have been saying for some time now that the Steelers are targeted, there is no doubt about that. That was never up for debate.

Just admit you worded your post incorrectly and it lead me to believe the wrong thing, I've already admitted that I misinterpreted your post. So quit giving me the business and lets put this behind us

Oh, and quit calling me a "newb"...This isn't Halo and I'm not thirteen.

They didn't care about beating us last year with half our starting secondary out. I have no sympathy.
