Steve Bargelt Oooooo biker!
I'm already sick of the Seattle whining. Stop already. It must be because Seattle is such a damned politically correct city that everyone is afraid to say that their Cinderella Seahawks simply lost to the Steelers. I am so sick of hearing that the referees were on Pittsburgh's side. I'm about to puke and it is only Monday morning. Claiming the refs were on Pittsburgh's side is almost as absurd as

Blah Blah Blah . . . don't forget the Steelers also gave up the longest run after an interception in SuperBowl history . . . 76 yards. OK, I needed SOMETHING. ;-)

I'm a Seattle fan, but I have to agree with you here Steve. The refs did not cause the Seahawks to lose the game. They lost it themselves, period. However, there is no way you can say that the refs didn't have _some_ impact on the game. To me, the refeering was atrocious only because it got in the way of the flow of the game. Let them play football for goodness sakes.

However, I think one of the travesties is that Seahawk fans aren't giving the Steelers the respect they deserve. And to me, there is no excuse for that. Although I do wish I would have been able to see the Bus carry that rock more in that game =D. The other thing 'Hawks fans need to realize is that the Steelers did not have their best game either. For goodness sakes, Big Ben was stone cold the first half (what would have happened if the Steelers came out and played the first half like they did in prior playoff games?!?).

One interesting point (which emphasizes how the refs did have at least _some_ impact on the game): statistically, Seattle won in almost every part of the game, yardage gained, turnovers, time of posession, etc. and still lose the game. Of course to me, you can also look at this as another point of just how Seattle was not able to "close the deal" during that entire game.

Man, I screamed with how many times Seattle would get a big first down only to be called back by some stupid penalty (stupid as in the Seahawks committed it and shouldn't have, not stupid as in an invalid call).

Overall, I think it was a great game. There were a bunch of "OH SHEETE" moments and that's something I love about a good football game.

OMG!!!!! And don't even get me started on Jeremy Stevens' dropped passes. He's an NFL receiver for goodness sakes. If you are wide open, and the ball hits your hands, DON'T DROP IT!!!

I know he's a tight-end, but I still consider that a "receiver" with how that position has evolved lately.

And now, I will STFU and let others make comments :).

Since a friend of mine was keen on quoting the consipracy theories from espn.com - here is a great one - as a matter of fact I think Mr. Wojciechowski read my blog! ;-) This article titled: Sorry conspiracy buffs, a loss sometimes is just a loss --
