I try to catch myself being too one-sided because I never like to just look at one side of an argument, but some of this I just can't help. I also can't help posting Steelers -vs- Cardinals talk on a Cowboys website either, but we all hate the Pittsburgh Steelers, right?
The fumble at the end of the game. All I heard about it was that the replays were being checked in the booth, and then I see the Steelers kneeling to run the clock out and all I could think was, “Where the hell is the review???”
It was one of the poorest called games I've seen in a long time, so bad that the only games worse were back when replay wasn't used, a certain Super Bowl several years back comes to mind.
That play might have been a fumble, though it looked like he was throwing the ball and that his arm was moving forward with the ball when it came out, but the point is that it should have gotten a full review. Sure, there would have only been 5 seconds on the clock if it had been ruled incomplete, but with Warner, Boldin, Breaston, and of course Fitzgerald, 5 seconds is more than enough to have a shot.
The NFL and the officials calling that game should not only be ashamed, but should be fined for some of the calls they made. At least three calls could easily suggest that someone either got paid well or a nice long BJ before the game, because the Steelers sure did luck out, didn't they?
Yeah, the Cards didn't get their top players involved early enough, but they still made up the difference enough for the win, if only for those calls …
