    The Richardson fumble that was not

    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.

    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.

    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....
