    How do you thoroughly dominate and only win by 4 points????

    Geez! A lot of good things in this game. But I don't think I have been this p*ssed off in victory in a LONG time.

    3 major brain farts ...

    1. Ryan Clark hitting Cruz after incomplete pass. Spotted NY 4 points.
    2. After Ben's fumble NOT ONE guy makes an adjustment to cover the case where a fumble is ruled.
    How exactly does assuming a fumble hurt your team????
    3. Harrison trying to run with Eli's fumble instead of just falling on the ball (not playing the situation)

    Even the game-clinching run by Redman needed to end the moment he realized he had 1st down. Again,
    play the situation, not for yards.

    Sheesh! This stuff has to get eliminated in the playoffs.

    No I'm not joking. We had a game that should have been an easy win and had to sweat it to the end.

    I don't think I have been this happy in victory in a LONG time, that was a great game and a much needed win!

    Agreed. This was a win on the road in bad circumstances against the defending SB champs. I'm not sure I could be upset about that.

    1) jeeze. Ryan Clarks hit was totally legal. The ball was in the air so he sized up the receiver and hit him in the shoulder.. How was he suppose to know that Another guy would nearly pick it off.. It was a Stupid Call by the Ref
    2) Heath did run with the guy and Got blocked in the back..
    3) when the Refs called that running play a touchdown (elbow on the ground big as day) and that BS Hit on Clark - We should have known the Refs were obviously not working with us today.. Yet we still won..

    Yes, there were mistakes in this game, but after some of our road losses this season this was a GREAT win!!! They had some 'unfortunate' calls to overcome, one completely idiotic coaching decision on 4th down, and even more injuries to deal with, but BEAT the SB champs in their place. Great ending to the day.

    Exactly!

    I'm estatic the way we weathered the storm, never gave up and came out winning this game. Most teams in this situation loses by 17+ points.

    There must have been 2 different Steelers games on today.

    Good Win!!! Here we go!!!!
    Don't Forget to bring a Towel

    Don't care what the score was. They won on the road against a good football team.
