    We're Not The Only Ones Who Recognized The Questionable Officiating...

    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, who was targeted 11 times but had just five receptions. But a personal foul penalty on Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark 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.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    “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.
