    we make the playoffs for first time in 8 years and are decimated by injuries including our starting qb, and face a fully healthy steelers team who destroy us.

    pats make the playoffs every damn year, are completely healthy other than gronk, and as if they needed any more help bell gets hurt for the steelers and misses just about the entire game.

    its amazing how blessed that franchise has been

    And got destroyed but it was nice of the league to schedule 3 games at home during Brady's 4 game suspension. Their only loss in those first 4 games was on the road.

    it didn't matter in the end but seriously how does brady fumble a qb sneak in short yardage video clearly shows is out and the dt hargrave comes out of the pile with it and they stick with a call of the patriots keep the ball from the head official who isn't even uncovering bodies in the pile?

    that's blatant stuff right there

    Pittsburgh finally got the karma from the game against us where the ball was given back to Ben after he clearly fumbled.

    Karma sucks but it eventually catches up with you.

    Ha! I was thinking of that same exact instance when they didn't give the ball to the Steelers. I really wanted to see NE lose but that was a nice one for us lol

    How about those 3-4 blatant PI that goes uncalled in NE favor?

    What's best is when the announcers are watching the replay and they say something like, "Well the NE defender has a hand full of jersey" and pretty much follow it up by not saying anything else...


    Lol!

    I didn't see the fumble play. But Pitt forgot how to score TDs after our game. NE had easy time getting to SB. And I believe Matty Ice is going to look very pedestrian in the SB - w a couple picks - and NE wins easily.

    The announcers were wrong about the ref saying there was a clear recovery. They can't use the guy coming out of the pile as video evidence.

    i agree. pats win fairly easily. falcons wont score like they have in the playoffs away from home, bellicheck will make sure julio jones doesnt beat them, and the falcons D is nothing special the pats will put up some points. something like 31-20 pats

    so because those dinosaurs can't see a clear recovery they stick with the on field call I take it...from a head official who on the plays basic responsibility is qb protection and oline holding

    I think it's a load of crap frankly...it wasn't his call to make in the first place yet he comes running in and pointing the pats way

    god the officiating is bad in the nfl...and the leagues justifications for it are even worse

    There is no conspiracy here. The Patriots have the best football coach of all time and a top 3 QB and that's why they won. They were going to win regardless of Bell, regardless of that fumble. They were the better team coming in.

    Exactly, I'm just glad Pittsburgh's D finally got exposed. It's too bad the Chefs couldn't win last week because I though with their D they would have been a better match up. I had a feeling Tom was going to expose the Squealers secondary and boy did he ever. Chris Hogan lol.

    Amazing how we couldn't really get open with our top WR's and yet the pats no name guys were open all night long and the PITT defenders were looking at each other after every play as if none of them knew what they were supposed to do

    Ozzy rules!!

    That's the thing about the Steelers, they will look all world against mediocre competition. But when they play an offense led by a real QB, their defense gets exposed. It's been that way for the better part of a decade now, they haven't really recovered from losing LeBeau.

    Pretty interesting that the missed fumble by Rotheberger in 2010 helped the Steelers reach the Super Bowl.
    This time the missed fumble by Brady prevented the Steelers from getting to the Super Bowl.

    That is real karma...

    For memory sake the 2010 season ended with Pittsburgh and Baltimore tied at 12-4, Pittsburgh got the bye and 2 seed and Baltimore got screwed. Had we not got screwed in that game Baltimore would have been the #2 seed. Pittsburgh probably never makes the Super Bowl that year if they call our game properly.

    Let'em play. I'll never complain about minor contact that goes on all the time between receivers and defenders. It goes both ways.

    Except NE is the only team where the CBs are allowed to play through the man without even trying to spot the ball. There was more than one instance of that yesterday.

    I see what you want, especially when blinded by hate.

    Sub-rule (a) = Let'em play football.
