Default No holding calls in 24 qtrs????

I recently read a post on another blog about the Steelers defense not getting a holding call in 24qtrs. Anyone no if this is legit? Seems amazing to me if thats the case.

Not pushing the research off to someone else. Just thought someone on here would have those stats in their Steelers library.

I read that somewhere too and that is absolutely ridiculous something like that can happen, especially with the talent we have.

"No holding is to be called when playing against the Steelers' D."

Goodell Law.

Thats exactly what the other post said. Coming in to today the last holding call was against the Skins. Not to be a conspirist (sp?) but thats total BS if its true. Harrison and Woodley could both be north of 20 sacks.

ya i just dont understand how that happens. it is known that there is holding on EVERY play so it should be called once or twice a game for every team but this is what i have come to expect with the Goodell reign
