Tough game last night. I felt like the Seahawks played the better game but the Steelers definitely busted off some big plays with Parker and the Randel El pass. The Jackson offensive pass interference was a joke. Hats off to the Steelers on their 5th Super Bowl win. Its too bad that the guy talking the biggest mess had such a crap game. Stevens did catch the touchdown but dropped pretty much everything else. Hopefully next year I will have better luck with either the Bears or the Hawks and that the NFL officiating won't suck.

Congratulations to:
Cannot Be Trusted (Kiss and Ride), Erik (Can You See the Sunset from the Southside?), Goose (Veritas Lux Mea) and JDS (Lat 44.2 North).

Some choice fan comments on the King 5 Seahawks Blog page.
"Pittsburgh has the 12th Man on the field today. It's the refs."
"Was that a terrible towel I saw in the refs' back pocket?"
"It was the worst officiated game in the history of the NFL."
"I have to wonder how much play this (bad officiating) is going to get in the national media. Or will we be watching the Bettis "fairy tale story" for the next few days?"

That game was full of bad calls.

The pass interference call, the TD at the end of the first half, Hasselbeck's tackle being called a "block."

Oh well, congrats to the Steelers and to former Bama player Deshea Townshend (who put a massive hit on a CB blitz on Hasselbeck.)

Thanks for the Slate reference anon. Enjoyed the story. I am not one to complain about the officials but there were some ridiculous calls which I am sure alot of people can agree on.

But some of it is on the Seahawks for not making the most of their opportunities.
