Ahhh, Dave, Week 7 saw my Steelers improve to 5-1 thanks to a tough rushing defense, a good ground game, an improving passing attack with Ben Roethlisberger back behind center ...
Really? If I hand you a puck on a hockey rink are you going to assume I scored? When the whistle blew and a touchdown was called, the play was officially dead. Since the whistle was blown too soon, the refs didn't exactly do their jobs determining an outcome from the fumble. In turn, this led to the players stirring more tales about what happened than O.J. Simpson's defense team. Lastly, whether we like it or not (and I do), the rule was interpreted correctly. Even if the Steelers got away with one, the Bears got a bigger gift win against the Lions on a more flagrant rule misinterpretation. Even Tony Sparano conceded the Dolphins' first two possessions -- both inside Pittsburgh's 25-yard line -- should have yielded more than two field goals. Not to mention Roethlisberger said he had the football and then let it go on the touchdown call.
Hmm, sounds like someone is unloading some baggage from the snow plow game against the Pats some decades ago.
Let it go. Don't make me start up the "wahmbulance."
OK, Scott Engel, you get on that. Until then, let's get to our first topic.
