First off I'm not blaming this loss on the officials, the Steelers defense allowed it, plain and simple.

Beyond disgraceful, beyond pathetic, beyond horrible officiating tonight from Walt Coleman and his entire crew. Regardless of the outcome, there is no excuse to miss that many calls and at crucial times. You are paid to make the calls, make them. I don't care if it's a judgement call or not, helmet to helmet is not a judgement call. When the guys' head snaps back and you hear a big CRACK, that usually means somebody's helmet hit somebody else's helmet.

There were atleast 6 blatant holding calls that were missed against the Ravens secondary. Wallace, Heath, and Brown all were held so many times it wasn't even funny.

Apparently though it's ok for Ray Lewis to have helmet to helmet contact but it's not ok for Ryan Clark. Both should have been flagged, and both were out in the open. It wasn't like there was a sea of bodies around that shielded their view.

This game left the worst taste in my mouth. The worst part of all is Ben, the o-line, and WR's did their job. Ravens, give a round of applause to the refs and William Gay!

Im not even going there with the refs, they had nothing to do with that last drive. it was a 92 yard drive and we didnt stop them. Im not complaining about the refs. Makes us sound like ratbird fans when they lose to us.

Pretty sure the "pass interference" at the end of the game was more on Torrey Smith than it was on Willie Gay also. :OA02:

OOPS!

Like I said, I'm not blaming the officials for this loss. I blame the defense for not being able to hold on. The fact is though there were so many missed calls, there is just no excuse.

I don't want to go there but we lost Ward on a blatant helmet to helmet that was uncalled. Who knows how that drive ends? Instead we punt.

They get stopped on 3rd down same situation but the penalty extends the drive. Pretty sure that was on one of their touchdown drives.

Complete momentum shift based on two plays that should have been called the same way.

I also loved where Collingsworth shows a video package of how great the Ravens are covering Wallace and you see blatant holding impeding Wallace which was never flagged.

You would think this game of all games this year would have had all of these personal fouls called, but to only see them called one way leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

Again though the Steelers inability to get off the field on third down and failure to stop a 92 yard TD drive is why they lost.

This is the type of game where you expect a lot of personal fouls, I agree, but instead they chose to ignore just about everything that was completely obvious and then throw the flag on questionable calls. Atleast be consistent and either call everything or call nothing, don't do this throw a flag here and there when you think it's time too or to make up for one you miss before. Honestly that what it looked like.

the officiating went both ways. it sucked, yes, but it didnt help the ratbirds any more than it helped us.

it wasnt the 92 yard drive that won the game either. that was just the back breaker. Ike was getting burned by Boldin almost at will, Gay was horrendous (as usual), and Mendy was mediocre at best. as a matter of fact if that rookie WR of theirs, #82 whatever his name is, wasnt so butter fingered he would have had TWO TD's instead of one, and at least 2 more 1st downs.

if you want to blame the loss on anything blame it on botched 3rd down stoppage. if you cant get their offense off the field on 3rd down youre going to lose. plain and simple.

then of course theres also the fact that they wore those hideous throwbacks again. christ i hate those fkn uniforms. YELLOW helmets? just for wearing that **** im less upset about the loss. hopefully if they lose every time they wear that crap theyll stop wearing them. EVER.

dev i don't know what game y ou watched i saw a push off for the td catch

and that "forward progress" play stoppage on rices 2nd negated TD was deplorable. and i saw at least two seperate instances of steelers holding ratbirds on special teams plays, various illegal contact noncalls on our secondary as well as the garden variety holding noncalls at the LoS, plus all of the times Ike and the rest of the secondary got burned but were lucky enough to have been covering butterfingered WR's.

stop being such a fanboi waving your "the steelers can do no wrong" sign and ignoring the stuff that you dont want to see. for every call that went against the steelers there was one that either wasnt called against them or in some way benefitted them.

the fact is that a lack of being able to stop the the rats on 3rd down is what lost the game. hell, if it werent for LUCK, pure and simple LUCK, on those two tipped passes to cotchery the game wouldnt have been as close as it was.

im sorry if my shoving your nose in reality bothers you but ... well, no actually im not. i hate it when fans of any team bitch about what happened against them but selectively ignore it when iffy calls go their way.

I cannot stand collinsworth, he's an idiot wrapped inside a moron with some of the MOST IDIOTIC statements...

A few near the end of the game were not this bad, but not much better:
Steelers would have won if they'd scored more points.
The Defense will have to step up to win this game.
The Defense will have to stop them on this drive to win the game..

REALLY??
You think so???
it's hard to type sarcasm...

Well, you can't call me a Steelers "homer" but when I saw Ward get hit helmet to helmet and nothing was called, I just thought to myself, this isn't going to be good!

Know it's hard to take but the Steelers are the BETTER team...you're going to end up with a better season than the Ravens and that's what counts!!

We should have known that the ref's were just going to sit back and watch this game go straight to the gutter. First off it was the Steeler's playing and do we ever get a straight game called either way? Then second the media has hyped up this rival between Us and the Raven's were most calls won't be made. We should be happy that Kemo didn't get his usual 3 or 4 calls this game. We have come a long way since opening day especially with all the inactives we had yesterday and we still only lost by 3 points on a game ending drive.

I can't wait for the list of players fined to come out this week. I seriously doubt Ray Lewis's name will be on it. Can we get a bet going in the casino? :greengrin:

ridiculous to blame the refs... We had sooo many chances to win this game and should of, but we failed, our "potent" offense wasn't all that and our once mighty defense is on the verge of being non-elite anymore

pluses: Max Starks did better than he usually does vs Suggs.
Brown is going to be something special.
Nice to see Sly, Jericho and Several other young faces paying there dues.

ps. when Clark gets fined, Ray Ray better too... just saying (but he prolly wont)

^ this.

i get so sick of hearing people whine like little girls about how life isnt fair and we've been wronged and if only <sniffle sniffle> things would have been different.

man the **** up and take your lumps like you have a pair. the black and gold is a symbol of toughness. mud blood and guts. no excuses, no mercy, no quarter given or asked for. its what has kept me a fan for all these years and its what has earned the respect of the league, 6 NFL "world" championships, 8 afc championships, and 20 division titles since 72. honor that history by not acting like a baby.

put your head down, go back to work, and expect the same from your team.

we WILL continue to get flags and fines b/c thats the style of play we play and expect in Pittsburgh. we dont and have not played flag football, we play smashmouth balls to the wall-ball. The way our legends did, the way we want our kids to play it. by all means we want player saftey, but we cant control guys "ducking" into a bang bang hit. we are blue collar town and we continue to play that way. we wont intentionally hurt anyone, but we will try to knock their socks off in every aspect of the game. we can not control what the refs call or dont call or what Roger fines or doesnt fine. we can only control the way we play the game and play as best we can. If we get fined or flagged... fine, im okay with that.

SHUT UP AND PLAY...

Excellent comment! You are exactly correct. Stop complaining about officiating. Defense was terrible, has been pretty bad all season (less the NE game). Officiating had 0% to do with end result. I can't think of many games where the officials effected the outcome over the years. Yes, some calls were missed....just the same as the D missing tackles, committing penalties, failing to get pressure at crucial times, failing to get turnovers, and blowing coverage. Get over it.....officials did NOT effect the outcome of the game. What more can you really ask from an officiating crew.

OOPS!
