Default Steelers Beat The Officials In This Game

When they didn't call holding against Harrison in the first quarter,Packers score a TD.
On the TD run by Ryan Grant there was another holding call not made. In the fourth quarter Hines was mugged by Woodsen and that wasn't called. Funny though, they didn't miss a single call against the Steelers.

Actually, they DID miss a couple calls against the Steelers.

It was actually a very well called game all said and done.

It was pretty fairly called. They would miss one on the Packers, give it right back on the Steelers, etc.... Plus most of the calls were blatant. Can't get upset anymore about Harrison, he gets held to one degree or another on damn near every play and it usually goes unpunished, which I think is fairly typical of the leagues best OLB's

We have been called before for that penalty against Miller on the TD run and it's a ticky tacky call.

I also thought that one of the holds they called was the player fell down and our guy fell on top of him nothing more than that.

And I agree that Hines was mugged but only time he got the call was when he was knocked down.

IMHO it did seem they called us for more questionable calls than they did the pack.

The Steelers were the benificiaries of the biggest blown call of the game. The inexplicable reversal of the called fumble of Ben's. That's total misuse of the replay system ( on the booth's part) and if I'm a Packers's fan I'm spitting mad about it. In all honesty I thought Tomlin blew it by even challenging the play, I was wrong on that I suppose. But I still don't think that's the sort of play that should be getting reversed.

I agree. There was nothing in the replay to reverse the initial call but hey, we'll take all the breaks we're given at this point.

Oh I'm cool with it, because it helped us. But this gives me equity the next time I moan when the steelers are on the receiving end of the reversal and someone accuses me of being a homer.

Seriously I can't stand moaning about the officials, it's so Holmgren like.

It goes both ways, but Steelers eyes will never see the ones the refs miss on the other side. Quit pissing and moaning like Seahawks or Cardinals fans.
