    Steelers/Colts: Eating Some Crow?

    Looks like Indy is playing flat.

    I'll become the biggest Broncoes fan in the world next week if the Colts lose.

    The Colts aren't blocking anyone.

    One of the worst offensive line performances I have seen in a while.

    What did Peyton Manning do to make his line turn against him?

    21-3 now.

    I mean, the Colts look embarrassing out there.

    It's all about pressure.

    So now Peyton has the ability to overrule Dungy on calls?

    Who is the coach here?

    I noticed that too. Unfortunately, CBS said that took "guts" to do what he did and didn't even acknowledge if there was a sideline exchange between Manning and Dungy afterwards.

    I'd love to see it.

    I think wrapping it up early hurts a team. They haven't played a meaningful game in two months.

    Another week of listening to Porter's mouth is all I can take. Go Broncos.

    That overturn might have very well been the worst call I have ever seen in an NFL game.

    I'm by no means a Steelers fan...

    But if you ever wanted to believe that games are influenced by the NFL offices in New York, this was the best piece of evidence you're ever going to get.

    That was, quite possibly, one of the worst screwjob replay calls I've ever seen in my life -- and after a LONG time that the official was talking to someone. Surprise, surprise -- the league's top team and best story in the postseason gets new life and scores a touchdown.

    You combine that with the horrific "No call" pass interference on Randel-El earlier in the game, the "no call" encroachment in the 4th quarter, and the "no-call" safety against Manning...

    It's suspicious...

    I'd say that it's beyond suspicious at this point.

    There wasn't a way in the world that INT could have been overturned unless an official were looking to somehow benefit the Colts. Using his own logic, no receiver could catch a pass while on the ground without then popping up to his feet while still controlling the ball. It's inconceivable that the play could be overturned. But it was.

    And yes, the Pass Interference was ridiculous. The "no call" Encroachment moreso, even if it caused less actual damage. It's impossible not to call a penalty on that one way or the other. There's no "start over" rule when an entire defensive line jumps offsides and causes the right Guard (or Tackle?) to stand up from his set position. It can't happen. But it did.

    Pittsburgh overcame all of it (by some miracle named "drunk kicker"), but you'll lose 99 times out of 100 when you have to overcome a team the caliber of the Colts, a crowd as loud as theirs, AND an officiating crew that is consistently looking for some way to allow them not to lose. It's almost inconceivable to me that an officiating crew can be that bad without some kind of direction to be that bad.

    Unless one of those officials gets fired this week, I have zero confidence in the integrity of officiating in the NFL. If one gets fired, I'll have a little more confidence than that. But not much.

    If the Colts win this one, I don't think I will stop laughing for a good 5 days.

    I'm sure Bettis envisioned a different scenario for his last NFL carry.
