I'm with Tony. I'm not saying the call was wrong, though it surprised me. I'm not saying that it was the "reason we lost the game", or "OMGWTFBBQ the refz r biassss conspiracy the Mafia!!1!". But that catch was definitely a turning point for momentum. For all sorts of reasons.

I do believe we would have won the game if it was ruled incomplete. Opinion!

I saw that too, and it definately wasn't a catch. So instead of 4th down and punting, the Texans scored two plays later. The Steelers were barely holding on to momentum and at that point they either get the ball back tied with some rhythm, or down a TD with ZERO momentum.

Yeah, they had other chances, and there was tons of missed plays... bla bla bla. But I completely agree that (if there was just one, then) it was the game changing play.

Still, the Steelers didn't deserve to win. They were lucky the final score wasn't 34-10. So a record of 2-2, or 3-1 means nothing if they keep playing bad and can't make the playoffs.

The Steelers blew it offensively when they received excellent field position very late in the fourth quarter. Instead of seizing the opportunity of a great kick return, they choked and did nothing on offense to move the ball. Despite the pounding the D took, the game was still within their grasp and the offense blew it.

It looked like a catch to me, but I am not going to debate that here, the turning point IMO happened after the TD, when our retarded OC decided that because we were down by a TD with a 8=10 minutes left in the game we had to pass and go 4 and 5 wide. To hell with the run that Houston was unable to stop.
That my friends was the turning point. I Bleed Steeler football and am coming to the Burgh to see them (hopefully) lay a smack down on the Titans, but I am getting really tired of seeing this very talented offensive team wasting away under the tutelege of of a guy who couldn't operate a jukebox if you gave him a quarter.

No, in the 3rd quarter, we started to dominate the game with an effictive running game (with mendenhall, whom i defended in the past, on the sideline). In the 3rd quarter, the texans had a lot of trouble running the ball and passing it too (number one pass defense in the NFL, YAY!!!!) we had control of the game in the third quarter; but then, the pressure was getting on Ben and the offense started to sputter. Thats when the texans got the momentum back.

lmao. Delusional.
are you referring the the TD run exactly 2 plays after (and a direct result of) the play i outlined as the turning point of the game?

LMFAILAO!

most of the time when you disagree for the sake of disagreeing and being argumentative, you dont make yourself look any smarter (if thats possible), especially when you make a point that only strengthens mine.

you just sunk the failboat. thanks though.... 'preciate it!

lets review-

steelers ended the 1st half with a drive down the field that ended in (much like your post) failed fg attempt.

they immediately got the ball back and drove down the entire field for a lengthy td drive.

after forcing a texans 3 and out, they got the ball back and drove down the field again for a lengthy fg attempt and score. at that point, the steelers controlled the ball for over 15 minutes in 3 drives vs just a minute and a half for texans.

in what was looking to be a huge time of possession change the steelers were on the cusp of another 3 and out. forcing a failed 3rd down conversion would have completely siezed momentum and taken over control of the game.

instead a blown call took the wind out of their sails.

a ball that hits the ground is NOT an "obvious" reception, despite your delusional perception. people who know the game and closely watched the play agree. why do you think TX hurried back to the huddle and snapped the ball before PITT could challenge? helloooo... mcfly.....

Turning point of the game, that's easy, the Opening Kickoff, getting totally dominated throughout. Being lucky that the Texans made stupid mistakes that two touchdowns were called back, if not it would have been a 34-10 drumming ala week 1.
