Taylor sucks, I cant post enough about that, lol.

Now Thomas is great?lol Come on, sure after Ike made him look great.
Not ONE single instance of "Refs lost the game" was brought up in this post.
Why do you even mention it?

The issue is the lack of quality referees and what will be done about it?

Disagree. On the play where Ike was called for pass interference, Harrison was CLEARLY being held. Harrison's running style aside, if James is past the o-lineman & the o-lineman is still holding onto the jersey, that is holding. Happens quite often.

lol...I think the OP was arguing that the refs have been horrible all across the board. Not just against the Steelers. Nice try at stirring the pot though.

Not trying to stir anything...it does go both ways...

But I'm ready for some Brady loving next week...we all know how much the refs love Brady and that's something everyone can agree on.

It's been so bad this year. I had Sunday Ticket so I got to see a lot of Patriots and Packers games.
I really feel like every week the referees would constantly bail out those 2 teams at the right moments.

Did anyone see that Tampa Bay and Green Bay game? That was one of the worst I have seen in a long time.

The refs did not lose this game for the Steelers. The refs KEPT THEM IN THE GAME. Your touchdown drive was extended because the refs incorrectly called a backward pass an incomplete pass. If they got that call right on the field, it is Denver ball at around the 25. Instead, the drive turns into 7 points. Sure some holding calls were missed, but they were missed both ways. Literally about 3 face mask penalties were missed against the Steelers. All 15 yard first downs. Some would have been drive extending. Far and away the biggest call in this game and likely a minimum of a 10 point swing went in favor of the Steelers, and allowed them to reach overtime. If not for that, they aren't even in the game. Stop crying about the refs. They didn't lose this game. The Steelers did. They underestimated Tebow being able to hit open receivers and went with cover 0 man with 9-10 in the box. They didn't make the adjustments, and they lost the game.
