And had New York not been the beneficiaries of a few big calls, it may not have found the end zone at all.


In addition to the sheer number of penalties the Giants had go in their favor, it was also hard to overlook the significance of close calls that went New York’s way. The first break came with 10:41 left in the second quarter, when the refs flagged Lewis for the first of his pass interference calls on what looked like a clean play, giving the Giants the ball at the Steelers 16-yard line.


Six plays later, with New York facing third-and-goal from the Pittsburgh 2, Manning threw an incomplete pass intended for Victor Cruz (http://www.planetsteelers.com/nfl/player/victor-cruz/770384), who was targeted 11 times but had just five receptions. But a personal foul penalty on Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark (http://www.planetsteelers.com/nfl/player/ryan-clark/105951) for an apparently clean hit on Cruz gave New York first-and-goal from the 1 and set up a Brown touchdown run on the next snap.

Props to the Steelers for overcoming the "Sandy sympathy" from the refs as well as the additional adversity of playing the Champs in their house on a day when the Steelers had to travel...

A signature Steeler win, and maybe a springboard to the remainder of this season.

Us against the world! They need to rally and realize they will get no breaks.

“It was clean, it just caught me by surprise and knocked the wind out of me,” Cruz said. (from the NY Post)

That's the way I saw it too- Sandy Sympathy for the G-men. Not some overarching anti-Steeler bias.

The first half I thought I was watching The Mean Machine play against the Prison Guards with the part of Warden Hazen being played by R. Goodell...

Add in the spearing call when Wallace was down and the refs picked up the flag..
It looked ugly live at the game.
Havn't seen a replay yet.
Good or bad call picking up the flag/

Think it was Eric Davis on NFL network today
He said that Clarks flag was one of the worst calls he has ever seen in the NFL.

I would go instead with the flag thrown on Harrison in the Superbowl against the Cards for being so absolutely physically imposing on that guy who kept trying to get up but Harrison kept pushing him down to the ground till we could almost hear the other guy start whimpering on the TV. I think it might have been on a kick off or punt? Anyway, it was well within the bounds of "blocking", but it was such a raw display of power that the refs could not handle it and threw a flag for unsportsmanlike. And the Pansy-*ss announcers bought into it.

I think the play did deserve a flag, but on the other guy, for being cojon-less!

Thinking about it, was the Cards player #47, and was that the guy who got beat on the TD to Stonio? I can't quite picture it anymore, but if so, we can pretty much give Deebo the entire credit for that game!!

What national TV saw was the beatdown which made it look dirty but the guy I think tried to go far Harrisons knees which pi$$ed him off.

Seemed to me Goodell wanted to show case his ego and the NFL to the country that, "look what the NFL is doing for New York City, look how great we are. We are the all and powerful NFL that will bring happiness to a city that has been through a storm. " Things didn't go the NFL's way with the Steelers pounding away at the Giants.
I believe the refs were informed or a subtle comment was made to one or all of them that, it would be a shame if the Giants didn't get to win.
So many phantom calls against the Steelers, so many non calls against the Steelers.
Was it me or were the commercials very long during this game ? With that, all I can believe is, the refs and Goodell were wondering how many fake flags they can throw because the Steelers weren't going away and the Giants are looking at a gift horse in the mouth and can't do anythig with it.

Actually there are at least two problems with yesterdays game.
1. The refs were clearly cheating for the Giants to win.

2. If my first opinion isn't correct then, the NFL needs to axe these refs because they are so horrible, most fans and not just Steeler fans believe this game was trying to be fixed or these are the worse refs ever.


Another thing ticked me off. The refs review the plays against the Steelers but, I don't believe the Giants had their plays reviewed. Some funny stuff going on there, and not funny ha, ha......

they really need to sit down and figure out how to take judgement out of some of these calls. don't forget the phantom fumble by Roethlisberger.... guarantee Brady gets a 'tuck' ruling on that play.
