Default Refs, not Jesus helps Tebow

I know. I am whiny Steeler fan. The national media, blogs and message boards have us pegged as whiny.

Hey I might be whiny, but I also might be right about my headline.

It's a little ticky-tack...

unless of course the guy that's highlighted is Hines Ward, in which case they'll call an illegal formation every time.

That's like calling traveling in the NBA. You could call it on any play but why stop the game? In the end, there was no real advantage gained (such as holding Harrison).

In my opinion, BFD... if he was a half a step closer to the line, they still score the TD. It had no bearing on the play and isn't even remotely close to the reason why the Steelers lost.

I'm Broncos fan, but I haven't rubbed the game in anybody's face. But I WILL say Pittsburgh was on the + side of officiating. Tim Tebow was facemasked on 3 plays and they were no calls, and if the whistle wasn't blown on that screen pass you could give us a free possession and take away 7 points from the steelers.

Oh believe me, we understand that as well. Steelers maybe got away with a few more things, but there were a couple of bs calls that went against them too. Same with the Broncos. It was just another poorly officiated game overall. I think we've all gotten far too used to seeing them the past few years (and especially this past year).

That said, I've seen the Steelers overcome bad calls many, many times and still win games. Missed call or not, it was blown defense, and IMO, it never should have gone to OT anyhow. Bad penalties or not, they didn't play well enough to win. Simple as that.

Sure, ok. Never mind the unflagged helmet to helmet hits committed against Antonio Brown and Roethlisberger, if we're going to talk about uncalled penalties.

That didn't affect anything. Besides, it's not just Tebow, every team that plays the Steelers gets the refs help. If other fans deny that then they are just in denial, plain and simple, it does happen every game.

While we're on the subject, how much of a cut does Jesus get from Tebow's $250,000.00 bonus?
