Steelers game against the Raiders....@Steelers..#steelers..A lil recap & PLENTY OF PICTURES that I took..




Okay, NORMALLY, I would comment on the game 'lightly' as I probably have already covered it PRETTY well on my main Twitter or on Facebook. Since I was actually AT THE GAME, I couldn't do that. I was too busy watching, taking flicks and enjoying the game to do much of the former honestly. So you get that here and all the pictures I am going to post up are ones I took myself. So you can have a better understanding of why (how) I could POSSIBLY say what I am about to say....







I normally don't like to say the 'League' is out to get ANYONE. However....


....14 times we got called for penalties for a franchise-record 163 yards..




...Four straight plays we got called for penalties. Oh we kicked behind but that doesn't make this RIGHT. That is RIDICULOUS. I won't cry about the calls WE DIDN'T GET but I will complain about the calls we had CALLED against us when it was that way ALL THE AROUND. @ THE PLAY ON THE FIELD. Just terrible...It got so bad that I started FOCUSING ON OLE BUDDY UP TOP (He was the one throwing the majority of the flags..) after each play. Sure enough, like Quick Draw McDraw, he had his hand on his flag, consulting with the other refs to see if he could THROW HIS FLAG..It was like this fool had a QUOTA to hit or something....

 Way too much of this here..^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. It was like they were 'apologizing' for the calls. You don't need to apologize if you made the right call to begin.....


(One of the many dust ups during the game....)

The 'punch'. (As I read this, Richard just got fined 25K....I'll take it. Suspension? I am aight with him not getting suspended.)

First of all, to all of you couch potato ass people who don't do anything physical besides lift your remote to flip the TV, punch some keys on a computer or haven't been physically hit in two decades (if ever), let Richard Seymour's 300+ behind punch you and lets see how you stand there and 'take it'. Lets see if you are still on your feet....

 (Richard and Hines talking after the Kelly scrum and during the TV timeout...A little bit before Richard got ejected...)




(Mike Tomlin getting 'escorted' off the field after last scrum with Richard Seymour.)


Second of all, that wasn't done because Ben 'said something to him'. Trai (Essex) and Richard were jaw jacking and instead of Richard going back at the one of the LINEMAN who giving him THAT WORK and who got into a lil scrum with, HE HITS BEN. Not that Ben isn't above being hit but hit the dude who you were just wrestling with and talking to @ Trai or Kem?  Am I taking Ben's word for it? No. I SAW IT. lol It happened on my side of the field. All Ben did was go get Trai and I can SEE HIM TELLING TRAI to "Come on, we scored...lets go.."..He didn't say shit to Richard THEN. Maybe BEFORE or something but right then? No.  Kelly and Richard were trying to 'fight' from the beginning and were LOSING THAT BATTLE in the trenches. Straight frustration on Richard's and Tom's part. I don't blame 'em. If I was getting stifled by a line that was 'patched together' due to injuries and I wasn't 'eating' I'd wanna fight too.

Truthfully, like Coach Tomlin said, it was a little out of hand period out there. On both sides. And the refs, for all of their 'flag throwing' didn't do much to make it any better. They never really took control of that UNTIL they threw Richard out. Like I said, Kelly and Richard were keeping it 'extra' on just about every play. Should have been threw a flag on one, if NOT BOTH OF THEM and maybe it doesn't get to that level.



(Interview that was piped into the stadium as we were exiting..Yes, I sat and watched the WHOLE THING. Lovely to hear the post-game IN THE STADIUM..) 

Anyway....Enough of that..We played well. Slow start but played well. Great atmosphere (Did you hear us chanting 'Ref you SUCK...Ref you SUCK...?). We threw the ball well and held a rusher who we KNEW was going to get the ball to under 20 yards. (14 yards to be exact. Bush's yards came against the 2nd teamers mostly.) We GOT AFTER THEM. The D said they were embarrassed last week and it showed it. Can't say enough about Mike Wallace. Speedy on TV but out and out FAST on the field. I know for a fact this next guy I am about to show is NOT SLOW and Mike got by him time and time again. (For the record, he was STRIDE FOR STRIDE with one DeSean Jackson in that game they beat Philly so I do have another speedster to gauge him running against..)

(Chris Johnson)

 Troy didn't have any 'splash plays'...Doesn't mean he didn't play well. He was all over. Made key tackles. Did his job.



(Oh wait, he did this...@ pick...My bad...@ Troy. )



Beast! I don't have to call his name...Ya'll know it...



Mr. Pouncy..I swear when he went down, there was a collective GASP. The rookie has become QUITE important. It was evident when he was out. Trust me...




Just some more shots from the game...
Yes we were all on deck to watch Mr. Suisham...INTENTLY....




































(Tom Cable looked like this PRETTY MUCH ALL DAY. I have SEVERAL PICTURES OF HIM LOOKING LIKE THIS...)
