Please let me know when Seattle is holding its victory parade or ring presentation ceremony since "the world" knows Seattle won that game - maybe I can tape the ceremonies.

ONE call on an interception- and I admit it was HUGE and I was OUTRAGED.

Now, where's your similar outrage over FIVE huge calls that went against Seattle?!

Hsselbeck personal foul for trying to tackle a player?!?!?!?! Two phantom calls that would have resulted in TDs?!?!?!?!?! BS calls on Special Teams returns?!?!

This was NOTHING like the ONE CALL you folks had to wrongly endure in Indi. And the WORST that resulted in was them to have a SHOT at OT. We were f-ed the ENTIRE FINBG GAME!!!

WTF?!?!??!!?!?!?!?!?!?

I don't care- the world knows the Stealers* are a sham- even girls watching the Super Bowl know the Seahawks kicked you punks all over the field.

Admit we're the better, more physical team and I'll stop.

A good coach prepares his team for the worst and moves on... You never see Cowher bitching about the calls after the fact. Even in the Indy game, Cowher kept the team composed and ready. What is done is done. You must, as a coach, set the tone for your team. Holmgrem proved he is a subpar coach... and his team reflected it.

The only way I could see Seattle being more physical is in a pack of Boyscouts......

Guess what, the record books will show a Steelers win. As time goes on, do you think anyone will give a shit about the loser's sour grapes? No.

Holmgren is an overated coach. Remember his brilliant move against Denver in the SB to let the Packers score the go ahead TD? The most blantant controversy that the media decided wasnt a controversy in the history of modern sports.
He sounded like an ass today. the Refs didnt beat the Seahawks. (Besides the Steelers) the Seahawks beat themselves over and over again. He should blame himself for allowing his own team to screw up the whole day.

Everyone complains about the refs (even Cowher) but I remember that after we lost that playoff game to the Titans a couple of years ago (the roughing the kicker call) Cowher did shake Jeff Fisher's hand - and we all know how Bill feels about him !

Leaving aside the fact that the Troy interception WOULD HAVE ENDED THE GAME I guess you have forgotten the non-pass intreference call on Randle-El when the Steelers were up 14-0 in the second Q of the Colts game. Of course, the AFC divisional playoffs were not on the Lifetime Channel and you missed that game.

Bottom line is that champs overcome setbacks - Seahawks are not champs! :)

5 calls? are you insane? The Pushing off was it... and The hasslebeck chop bloc was BS, but I saw that called earlier this year on Faneca.

Also, your defense is soft... I saw a lot of pancakes on that field. If ben played even a b- game it would have been 42-13... refs or not. If the steeler D was so soft... why was hasslecrack sacked 3-4 times? Why was Jeremy Steven being used as a human pinata?

Stop smoking seahawk pole and realize you guys will be lucky to win 9 games next year.
