Default Steelers' unsportmanlike conduct?

Couldn't watch the game because, NFL.COM's site was unbelievably messed up & slow. So when I was watching the highlights, the commentator was talking about someone from our team made unsportsmanlike conduct that hurt was pretty bad. Who was it & how did it happen?

Chris Hoke simulated the snap count during a field goal attempt.

call me a n00b I never played organized football but how do you "simulate" a snap count? Was he just randomly shouting "hut...hut...hut" or something to that extent?

I remember the Jets/Ravens game last year and the Ratbirds were all pissy because the Jets D would should out signals and numbers to try and distract and throw off the play count. I'm sure that's the gist of what went on today. The real question is why would someone do that? You'd obviously have to yell it pretty loud to make any impact and the refs are standing right there.

Its a bush league thing to do and a costly mental mistake.

If you are out on the edge or playing OT and somebody fasely calls out the snap count from inside, it can cause a procedure call by mistake. It is a penalty and should be.

Ya. It would seem undisciplined...

A FG there was really the best case scenario. Why would you chance giving them an automatic first down.

If I remember correctly that would have kept us within one score.

Maybe the offense would have approached the drive a little differently knowing they only needed a single touchdown to (if I remember) take a one point lead.

Seems odd. Hokey's a solid guy.

Then again... I may have my chronology all mixed up.

It should have never even come to that, if you remember right (you Member) we gave up a 3rd and 20, that IMO was the turning point of the game no question about it.
