The Steelers @ the Bengals

Postby gablefan » Mon Oct 24, 2005 10:21 am

Did anyone else watch this game? If you did let me pick your brain a sec. Was the Unnecessary roughness call on, I think hope, for "slamming" Chad Johnson to the ground BS? I know call go both ways, and as a whole I think we have gotten most in our favor so far this year, but I thought that one was horrible! Maybe it shut him up for a play or two though?

I did enjoy Hines Wards' riverdance though! :-b

Hines Ward didn't even do riverdance. He did some we-tall-did shuffle with his feet.

It was a REALLY REALLY bad try to imitate Chad.

On a similar note, does Hines Ward have an original bone in his body? Last year, he wanted to be TO with the Eagles' wing flap (he has to remember that he's a Steeler...not an Eagle). Now, he tries to do a Chad celebration.

Make up your own stuff, Hines...you're embarassing yourself out there.

gable, don't get me started on bad calls. you guys definitely got the better end of the stick from the zebras yesterday--not saying you didn't outplay cincinnati--but to hear you come out on the leftovers forum and gripe about this? come on. in tackling a person, there's no need to actually lift him off the ground. end of discussion.

steelers definitely > bengals this week, though. no denying that.

I thought it was a pretty ticky-tacky call that probably shouldn’t have been called, but:

A) We couldn’t hear the whistle on the TV. If it blew 2 or 3 seconds before he threw Chad, then it would have been a justified penalty.
B) It made very little to no difference in the game.
C) It didn’t come close to making up for all the generous spots you were getting from the refs. You got multiple first-downs when it should have been 4th and 1 or 4th and 2.

I thought it was a bad call. I also thought the unnecessary roughness they called in the first half when the threw Chris Perry out of bounds was uncalled for. The Hines Ward "unsportsmanlike conduct was BS too. However, I didn't think there was enough evidence on the instant replay to overturn the CJ TD (unless the refs had a different angle than we all got). It has to be clear and irrefutable evidence - not borderline possibility like that.

After that botched first drive for Cincy, I knew the game was over. Pittsburgh is too good to leave points on the field. Nice game Steelers - we'll be back.

you cant really say because we didnt hear the whistle......but there is still no reason to suplex someone onto their head....thats seriously dangerous....

hines' dance was the dumbest thing ive ever seen...it looked like he was skipping in place or something.....he needs to be original...like BH said, last year TO, now Chad....next he'll moon the crowd like Randy....
