Default Re: The Sour Grapes have started. . .

The game is over and the Steelers won. The penalties and calls were close, maybe pushed the line, but I agree with them. Not as a Steelers fans but as a person that believes in sportsmanship and the best team winning. The plays were close but if your sit down with your rule book and watch the flags they are right in essence.
If Jackson lightly contacts and pushes off then catches the ball it is pass interference. It doesn’t matter that he didn’t push him that hard. Watch the recording his push, changes the defenders momentum and frees him to catch the ball
Hasselbeck brushed a Lineman Steeler. Therefore it was an illegal block. It was not wrong. It was just very, very strict.
If you don't like the rules, lobby to have them changed. Until then wipe the spittle off your bellyaching chin and shut up.
I think Ben’s rush crossed the FN plane. It was replayed by the best refs in the world and I agree with them.
Even if the Seahawks did get those calls would game be any different? No one knows. And what about the bad calls against us?! There were 2 fumbles in the game ruled as incomplete passes.

But most important is this:
We took advantage of the opportunities given to us.
