    I don't think you can hang 17 points on the refs.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    The Steelers (coaches and players) helped the 49's win a lot more than the refs.

    Sure the refs sucked, but any thought that it might have been the difference between winning and losing that game is akin to Seahawk fans thinking that the refs were the difference in a 21-10 SBXL loss.

    San Francisco is a good team. They whipped the Steelers.

    There is no way you can hang this on the officials.

    The officials were awful and infuriating last night, as they often are these days.

    But the Steelers were far more awful and infuriating.

    It felt like we could play that game for 10 more quarters and still not score. It happens. Time to move on.

    Ben's 4 turnovers lost the game. The refs horrible calls (running into returner when his own man did, the FG bullcrap, and the mystery chop block) were only the icing. Throw in the two power outages and that game was crap.

    Not so fast. If I were the 49ers, I wouldn't be too proud. The Steelers aren't a good team right now, and the 9ers haven't beaten a top tier team (the Giants??) all season.

    Still, I loved their Defense last night, especially that tall pass rusher, what a good player. The Steelers turned the ball over 4 times and SF only got 20 points. But then again, if you spotted the Steelers 4 turnovers they would still have trouble scoring even that much. SO, the 9ers better not read their press this week too much and rest on their laurels.

    The most obvious impact call was the receiver interference call. That would have given us the ball around their 30, instead they got it close to midfield.

    The thing is that the Steelers did nothing all night to prove that they could have done anything with the ball had they kept it so while it may have been a big missed call, I would not say that it cost us the game.

    The unsportsmanlike call on Timmons was a ticky tack call. However, supposedly Harbaugh had alerted the official on our previous FG block attempt that it was happening. I don't know but I think that I see this exact thing on almost every FG attempt, but again, not the wrong call according to the rulebook.
