    Football truly is a game of inches, 2-3 inches to the right the Steelers would be 6-7, but now the season is over.

    Antonio’s foot going out of bounds matters little. Forty yards up the field saw Ben clearly commit a forward lateral.

    Penalties are always a problem for the Seahawks because they are always targeted by refs. Refs gave 49ers 10 points they didnt earn Sunday. The real score of that game was 17-9, Seahawks. Refs gave Indy a 15 point swing in that game too. It won’t stop until Pete Carroll comes out and questions the officiating publically.

    the lions RB Bell shouldn’t be too hard on himself..

    i was watching that guy. He had that ball with two hands and it still popped out..
    There isn’t much you can do about that..

    however the Lion’s center?? he blew the game for them by not paying attention..l. in excusable.

    Stop whining and take that loss… There was numerous pass interference calls that wasn’t called either… The refs helped y’all out too so it went both ways…so stop complaining and move on…

    @osiris33 call the “wah-mbulance”. Seattle are “targetted” by the refs? Dont make me laugh!

    Your DB’s get away with playing grab-ass with WR’s LEAGUE WIDE and are never flagged for it! Case in point the BLATANT PI against Crabtree that would have given the 9ers 1st and Goal at about the three!

    How bad was the call? SO BAD even TROY AIKMAN pointed it out to the world. Imagine how much that must have stuck in his throat.

    It was a great game but the refs didn’t gift anyone anything, and they sure as hell didn’t victimise the Seahawks!

    I am not a niner fan or a seahawk fan. But come on guys own your mistakes and fix them dont blame other people for your loss. There are bad calls in every game. Good teams win in spite of penalties and mistakes. IF you guys would stop your whining you might win the SB once. Oh I forgot the refs took that one too. Not a steeler fan either. HA how sad.

    Jeff Triplette has some explaining to do. That call alone may remove “on field reviews” and send it to a booth or remote review location.

    At least hold Refs accountable when they make such ridiculous decisions.

    “We didn’t even review the backfield, only the goalline” – Jeff Triplette… wow Jeff, you took 5 minutes and never watched the 2-3 second play in full?

    Things Joe Banner has taught me

    1) You need a real fullback to run in this league. (oops)

    2) Phil Dawson wins games (oops)

    3) If you spend your cap money you get better (oops)

    4) Having special – special teams players – and not having it be a second job to your starters – wins games (oops)

    5) Using a #2 to draft a receiver in the supplemental is a waste (Good OOPS)

    More lessons to come (oops)
