Both teams played poorly; the seabags just played worse - did they think they'd win with 10 points? yeesh. Refs didn't grease up the balls or coat the receivers gloves with teflon between the "ok start" first quarter and the rest of the game. Refs didn't forget how to manage the clock after a two minute warning.
It's not so much that Steelers won, it's that the Seabags managed to lose - what was it, if alexander rushes for over 100 yards they almost always win? Only got 95 on sunday... maybe holmgren thought he was in line for a record or something and decided not to give him the ball.
On the Roethlisburger goal line TD, it really could've gone either way; I don't think it would've been overturned no matter which way the goal line judge had called it; it was THAT close. But it was also only 3rd and 1 with the score 3-0 for the 'hawks at that point - I honestly think Pitt would've gone for it on 4th and micrometers, given how sloppy they had played to that point. I mean, if you throw the ball on the ground every time you touch it, you'd have a higher passer rating that Ben Hamburgler ended up with.
And the two missed indoor field goals by seattle didn't help them either...
Simply put, it was not a good game all around. Use your head, don't lose it - Don't feed the trolls!
