    I was on the edge of my seat virtually the whole game, and I loved the happy ending!

    On Mike & Mike this AM, Coach Ditka talked about the "worse officiating ever" with this game and 2 others--calling "fictitious calls like the one on Ryan Clark and fumble on Ben".

    Golic calling the hit by Ryan Clark on Cruz "a football hit" and that it isn't made such a big deal today because the Steelers won.

    it's sad when the announcers have to lie to make the officials and NFL look legit. If this were the replacement refs it would be front page news.

    In my opinion the only difference between the replacements and the current group is the current group's ability to keep a game moving along smoothly form start to end; otherwise, the refereeing has been just as bad as when the replacements were making the calls (maybe, slightly better, not much).

    By halftime I was screaming at the TV " Tomlin, don't come out of the lockeroom for the second half. Phone the refs and the commisioners and tell them this. " If you want the Giants to win so badly, just take the win we are going home. "

    The Gianst do have the red white and blue colors. Maybe the refs thought it was New England and tried to promote them on to a better record with another cheating win for Bellicheat and Shady.

    Worse game called by the refs I've ever seen or remember seeing. And for the talk about the Steelers Seahawk game......The calls they made against the Hawks were legit and had substance. The calls on the Steelers were phantom calls. I believe there was one bad call that went against the Hawks at the end of the game but the rest, were following the rules of the game.

    This was so bad, it makes me considering ending my following of the NFL; they are going to kill the golden goose with their freaking corruption. Yea, we won but had to overcome at LEAST 14 points in complete fraudulent calls. How about the int. call where Lewis virtually didn't even touch the WR? That was as bad as any of them. He brushed the WR with a finger nail and that was PI? If I see much more of this, I will indeed consider stop following this league. I am serious.

    At one point the annoucers were questioning the bad calls too but then, their tune changed. I'm sure Goodll got on the phone and told them not to stir the pot.

    I'm thinking if anyone called it might have been network brass, not Goodell.
