yea...fans need to know that if it wasn't for Baltimore they'd be singing "God Save the Queen".

 

well there's a good chance we would have reached independence in the 1860s around the time of Canada.

 

Not to mention slavery would've ended a lot earlier so no need for a Civil War.

 

And the Second verse of God Save the Queen starts with an "O!"

Damn. Closer than I expected. I don't want to hear the Steelers' defense compared to the all-time greats. 23 points to a one-dimensional offense? Nah.

 

 

The Steelers' team earned this one, though. Good game.

Where was the review on the final Cards play??

 

That's another shot we can take at Replay... it's not used or effective when it is most critical.

 

It may not have changed the game, but in my view, that should have been ruled incomplete, not a fumble. The Cards would have had one or two more plays.

 

I think the replays and analysis will agree with that in the days to come.

 

And here is the NFL's response, guaranteed: The replay official wanted to review the play and was in the process of making that decision when the Steelers snapped the ball for the final play. Unfortunately, at that point, there was nothing the officials could do to change the outcome and replay was no longer an option.

 

Totally covers their ass... they don't have to say that it was incomplete, but they don't have to take the brunt for not reviewing it.

Add that to the fact that there was a 15-yard penalty on the field which would have given the Cards a really good shot at the endzone. ESPN.com's Mike Sando believes that Harrison should have been ejected from the game for his personal foul, I tend to agree with him.

on ESPN's NFL Blog Network, the Cards blogger brought it up right away... saying the ref cloud will be over this game...

 

he thinks Harrison should have been ejected for punching the Cards player on that punt (I think thats a little extreme) and he calls out the non-review of the last fumble.

 

funny thing is, after all the talk of warner's gloves, i think the gloves are the only reason that ball was in his hands when it moved forward...

Harrison is a Steeler. A star Steeler. Punching, kicking and grabbing is allowed when you wear black and gold.

 

 

In fact, they should have thrown out the Cardinals' player for making Harrison angry.

I do not think it would have been extreme at all. Harrison did not knock the offensive player down once, but twice, THEN he punched him, and THEN pushed him again. Harrison's actions had nothing to do with the ongoing play, it is not like Harrison was trying to block someone until the whistle blows. The actions went beyond a single personal foul and were clearly malignant. I always thought whenever a clear punch is thrown, that is an automatic ejection. Harrison clearly punched the offensive player, that was not a shove. I doubt this is taken into consideration, but Harrison's penalty had a net change of a mere yard.

They only really showed one replay I saw...

 

I thought Harrison blocked the guy and knocked him down (fair enough)... the guy went to get up again and Harrison "blocked him" again (admittedly, fairly harshly, but not entirely illegal)... before the guy could even get up a third time, Harrison clearly hit him again and then stood over him as if saying "Don't get up."

 

That's what I saw, at least. PF? Sure. Ejection? I don't know that you can make that call, that easily in such a game.

 

Meanwhile, the PF calls against the Cards for roughing Ben and for running into the holder were both pretty lame...

I am not sure how you missed the clear punch to the side, dc, it hasn't a 'hit.' And I am pretty sure that third "block" happened after the play had expired.

It's not a punch. First is what looks like it might be a punch, but turns out to be an open-hand shove down... then a shove to the side... none of them are punches... they are all just overexuberant blocks and shoves and hits... and all excessive, but not ejection worthy.

 

And the flag was thrown during the play anyway...
