This is a situation where I wish the NFL would just use some common sense and get it right. The way our offense played, I doubt we put 7 on the board, but we should have been given a chance.

that was a horrible call. I also think Rainey was down.

Cowher before the game was suggesting a combo of NHL and NCAA review rules to make sure they get the calls correct.

The whole point of the review system is to get the calls right. So get em right. Or get rid of the reviews.

It was obvious that it was a blown call, but please don't make much of this. A rule is a rule.

After a hundred turnovers, we didn't deserve that call.

If he'd gotten the call right today, it wouldn't have mattered. Someone on our offense would've given the ball right back to the Brownies.

Not making excuses. Just wish the NFL could get it right. You can overturn a bad call after the two minute warning but not at any other point in the game? Timeouts or no timeouts, that's just dumb.

Fighting for a playoff spot and play that type of garbage game cant be blamed on the refs.

I didn't see the game (thankfully) but listened to it while driving back home. Tunch and Hilgrove both thought it was a fumble. Nonetheless, the Steelers screwed themselves in this game....

It was a bad call no doubt but I do not think it would have mattered. As long as Charlie Batch was behind center we were not going to win this game...or any game for that matter.

Whether we deserved it is not the point, the defense did what it needed - created a turnover - & the refs blew it. Who knows if we could've pulled it out?...but it would've been nice to get the chance.

I saw hardcore hits without penalty, and logic in college football yesterday. NFL blows.

That's crap... a fumble is a fumble. I don't care if we gave it right back but get the call right.

These refs are just as bad as the replacement refs.

I agree. It's getting insane. You were so right that you posted it twice!

NEWSFLASH: Refs aren't perfect. (It was an obvious call upon further review.) But to complain about referees, especially in a game when you give the ball away seven times, its what losers do. I've played a thousand basketball games... the teams that would whine after games, invariably had loser attitudes and didn't see the big picture... that they blew it.

Bad calls happen... and after they blew the call, they followed league rules (that made the play unreviewable). It was what it was...

I also thought Rainey was down but they didn't seem to want to replay it. I wanted to take a closer look at that play.

They have a very flawed system that I sometimes think is intentionally designed to just create something to talk about. I'm not a fan of the Detroit Lions, but what happened there on Thursday (another stupid replay rule) was absurd. Not every play in a football game should be reviewed, but there's absolutely no reason that in 2012 with a hundred HD cameras on the field, a potential game changing play is blown when it doesn't have to be.

And again, I really doubt Charlie Batch gets the Steelers in the end zone, but he should have gotten a chance.

who said the refs need to be perfect? The guy was tackled without the football... I never said the refs caused 7 TO's but they damn sure missed one at a critical time in the game.

Yup. What I've been saying.
