anyone remember that if it was not for a non-defensive holding call against sanders, that game would have been won by the steelers. and the jets owuld not be talking as much smack as they have. it seems like espn never gets down to complete facts when using doing there analysis, and yet still most of espn are picking the steelers to win. so makes me wonder what cowher and obama know that we don't.

Yes I do, it was a bad miss call for sure...I still think if we had Heath or a TE that could catch the game would of been diffrent...

Lets not forget the Jets needed that game in a bad way...

In hindsight, I think it's better the Steelers lost the regular season game, it keeps them on point for this one.

I remember Harrison being hog tied every time he went after Sanchez.

Not only that, but it makes the Jets over confident.

Steelers are getting very little respect from people around the NFL right now. I'm amazed that the #2 seed is being so over looked in favor of the #6. In the last 20+ years, since the NFL expanded to 12 teams in the playoffs, only one #6 seed has made the Super Bowl (the Steelers a few years back).

Technically speaking, that's pass interference, not defensive holding.

JUST in the game vs the Jets? Harrison is always held.

Please. Are you actually blaming the loss on a non exsistant call? Blaming it on something that didn't even happen? What about your RB "First down" that kept the drive alive and if I'm not mistaken, you guys ended up scoring? It was completely obvious that he was a yard short.
It's an extremely rare event when a game is actually decided by the refs.

I agree. There are BS calls and calls that are never made in every game. GO JETS!

Like the UFC says "Take it out of the hands of the judges".

the point is that sanders had his man beat and was a sure score if not held but the db grabbed him and it was obvious and for a game changing play it was to obvious not to call.
