Well I agree with that. I had often said, before Judge Berman's ruling, that they didn't have any real evidence that could have convicted him in a real world court. I could go on but I don't want to hijack this thread with yet another round of deflategate BS. We need some new cheating allegations or poor officiating (that's not hard to find) to complain about.

I often wonder how many games have been won (or lost) due to bad calls.

Poor officiating you say? OK, how about the obvious low hit on Roethlisberger that wasn't penalized and / or fined? I know Im a Steeler fan which could make me biased but I watch more football than just about anyone and trust me, the NFL does not protect Roethlisberger like other QBs for some reason.

The illegal hit doesnt have to be intentional or malicious to be penalized or draw a fine. It just has to be illegal and dangerous. Can anyone say that one wasnt? You cant hit a QB anywhere near the lower leg area especially when all his weight is planted on that leg.

There's 2 reasons for that. They are tryign to protect people from injury but more importantly for the NFL, nobody wants to watch Vick, Flynn or Garrapolo when they could be watching Big Ben, Brady or Rodgers.

Scooby Doo costs the Steelers the game. Mike Tomlin needs his head examined. Why did he not cut this guy when he missed 2 FGs on week1? Why did he not cut him when he missed an extra point in week 2? The Eagles' kicker is out for the season and the next day they signed Caleb Sturgis who used to kick for Miami. There are always plenty of kickers floating around.

Why did we sign Vick. Of the 44 QBs that have thrown 100 passes the last 2 years, Vick has the absolute lowest Total QB rating. Why did Tomlin go for it on 4th and 2 in the 4th quarter with a bad QB when he could punt and bury the Ravens.

Why did Tomlin let Vick throw on 4th and 1 in OT when he has one of the best RBs in football. Vick is terrible.

Im sick over this game. I didnt expect to win all of our games with Vick in there, but this one was given away with stupid decisions.

Went to bed with the Steelers up 20-7 and Vick was doing good. This morning I found out they lost in OT. Bummer I was wishing for a Steelers win because I'm not a fan of Harbaugh, Flaco and the Ravens.

Having Vick throw it on 4th down does not make sense to me when Bell had 129 yards rushing.

I agree with you on Scobee. They should have signed another kicker after week 2.

Well, IMO, the Texans made history again today with one of the worse games I've ever seen them play. And I've seen them play some bad ones. They can't seem to pass or run or kick but they really excel at getting penalties, throwing interceptions, missing field goals and fumbling the ball. Heck, one of their players even striped the ball from their own teammate this time. You know it's pretty bad when your opponent lets their backup QB play since they are so far ahead. Either that or the Falcons QB (Matt Ryan) was just worn out by the 4th quarter from running up and down the field scoring touchdowns. What an embarrassment for Houston. And to think they play again on national TV this Thursday night. Hopefully they will do a little better against the Colts on Thursday.

Speaking of penalties the Buffalo Bills committed 17 penalties for almost 150 yards and at one point had two consecutive personal foul penalties for hits after the play was over lost by 2 touchdowns but Rex Ryan was proud of how they played.

Meanwhile his former team looked good in London.

The Ryan brothers are two of the worst coaches in NFL history. I seriously wonder how they still have jobs. I looked up Rob Ryan's defenses once. He's been the Defensive coordinator for Oakland, Cleveland, Dallas and now New Orleans. His defensive rankings are in the bottom half of the league every year...then he gets fired and someone else hires him.

They will find a veteran to replace him with. Shayne Graham, Billy Cundiff and Jay Feely are all unsigned. Not to mention some rookies that are in other teams' camps that wont make the team.

Anyhow, told you so...says one Steeler fan to another

And, Tomlin, as of right now, has two of the best running backs in the NFL, not just one.

But hey, the Steelers finally released Scooby Can't and signed kicker Chris Boswell.

I think I once read that Tomlin was actually related the Ryan brothers.

I've decided to treat myself to a steak dinner following every Bears win this season. Good thing I don't eat much red meat. But they won today. Go Bears!

I'll say this. We will find out how good Tomlin is when Rothlisberger is gone. I say the same thing about Bellichik. The true test is how good he is without Brady.

Looks like you found your answer... Rothlisberger is gone (temporarily).

Gotta give props. You nailed this one about Suisham's injury hurting badly. I still say there are lots of kickers floating around, but Tomlin obviously picked the wrong one....and even worse, why the hell did he hang on to him so long?

I almost threw my remote at my brand new 4K TV when Tomlin went for it on 4th and 2 instead of punting. Ive never questioned his coaching before but he was as bad as Scooby Doo was in this game.

Its a QB league.

Steelers 0-1 without Roethlisberger
Cowboys 0-2 without Romo
Saints 0-1 without Brees (they stink anyway but still)
Colt 1-0 without Luck, but does it count when you need OT to beat Jacksonville?

Speaking of the Ryan brothers...Rex Ryan is supposed to be a defensive coach. People said he had no play makers on the Jets. He came to Buffalo and they gave him plenty of play makers to go with a shut down defense.. What did he do? After 4 games, he has turned their defense from #2 in the NFL to #20.

I take back what I've previously said about Buffalo. Rex Ryan is too stupid to win with that team (or any team). Give Buffalo to a real coach and they go to the playoffs.

That's one of the reasons why I refrain from making predictions before the season starts. Rex is an overrated loud mouth that does not back it up consistently on the field.
