Default Bill Cowher & Pat Kirwan's reaction to Ryan Clark penalty

pat watches the games will bill every weekend at the CBS studios. He said the "jaw was out and his head shaking back and forth".

it obviously want helmet to helmet, but the giant fans and steeler haters will say that is just semantics and it was still a personal foul/late hit/hit on a defenseless receiver.

no, no, and NO!

it was a live ball that was tipped (dropped interception) and it was ryan clarks job to either prevent the closest receiver from catching the tipped ball (for a td) or tackling the interceptor. he was doing his job on a completely legal play.

kirwan said on his radio show that there were "several suspect penalty calls" against the steelers and he would just leave it at that, but if anyone had a notion that there wasnt a predetermined and desired outcome of the game that the suspect calls did nothing to dispell that.

his radio partner tim ryan agreed.

keep in mind, these are company men working for the NFL on sirius radio, and their other employers (FOX and CBS) are partners with the league.

yes, i am still angry the league intentionally tried to job the steelers and almost got away with it, despite what was otherwise a great comeback in what shouldve been one of the great matchups of the year (possible SB preview).

clark hit him shoulder to shoulder BEFORE the ball even hit the ground. so helmet to helmet AND late hit calls were completely bogus.

Cowher did say that the fumble by Ben was legit in his opinion. The ball was moving before the hand was going forward.

Got to say it looked a bit shady. Maybe that is part of the collective agreement with the NFL Officials?? We will give into your demands if you let us tell you how games are supposed to turn out.

i'll give the refs the call against ben's fumble. it was close, but i'll be generous to the refs on that one.

the inexcusable one was the first PI call against lewis, and especially the call against clark. the touchdown that resulted from that was probably as big as a 7 point swing because i doubt they even get to field goal range if not for that PI call. And definitely get 3 instead of 7 if not for the ryan clark penalty.

This game shouldn't have been as close as what it was.

oh and the giants RB that scored a touchdown when he clearly didn't break the plane? are you kidding me?

personally, the call giving the Giants their first TD (ball never close to crossing the goalline) was as-bad-as I've seen,
but with Ms. Godell horny to get scoring, it is typical

I heard Clark has to hand in his Jock to Goodell for further review!
