how can you question a winning formula, though?

as was stated the steelers are like 169-1-1 in their entire history with a 20 point lead (steelers went up 27-7 with the 1st play of the 4th quarter).

lebeau had nothing to do with bens 4th quater interception nor the refs throwing 3 consecutive bogus flags.

I just don't understand how we get flagged for two personal fouls and pass interference in a row. They never showed Adams' penalty, so can't complain about that one. Casey's was questionable...he fell from a block into Palmer, but was still at his theigs...not his knees. If that was Ben, NO WAY they throw that flag. And the pass interference was complete BS. Those guys were arm and arm and the guy closest to the play didn't think anything of it...what did that other a$$hole see? I honestly think this is a natural, human reaction by the refs to throw flags because the Steelers have been in the media so much about the late/helmet hits. They are erring on the side of flagging us.

i can tell you exactly why a flag was thrown. It was one of those plays that unfolds right before your very eyes.

1. Pass comes, defender reaches his hand in there, pretty cleanly i thought
2. Incomplete pass
3. No flag
4. T. O. starts gyrating and jumping up and down like an idiot.
5. Weak-minded ref "throws a flag", obviously influenced by T.O.'s actions and not his own judgement

I thought the stat during the game was that the Steelers have never blown a 20 point lead ever in their history?

No it goes like this. . .
Heiden states (as instructed by the NFL) "Goodell is here for other business"
Bengals have a chance to get back in the game
Goodell tells ref to call penalty 1
Goodell tells ref to call penalty 2
Goodell gels ref to call penalty 3

Conspiracy? Maybe but interesting that Goodell was there and the BS happens!
Hehe

yeah he didn't realize it was the 4th Quarter until Ben took the knee... I could hear him now, "Wait, the game can't be over yet!! Flag Ben for intentional kneeing!"
