There are always questionable calls, I seen them on both sides. I'm not going to go the sour grape route, all I can say is that the Steeler's D just didn't get the job done. Flacco was having a great night and I think LaBeau should have had an all out blitz on the last drive instead of letting him stand in the pocket so long. Steeler's D couldn't get the Raven's off of the field on 3rd down either.

I am still not able to eat because of my upset stomach, my throat still hurts from screaming, my voice hasn't returned either. Other than that it was a good game, if the outcome would have been different it would have been a GREAT game.

I have to say, I played WR in high school and that was basically my "move" when blocking outside, and I used to get called for it all the time. Basically, as soon as the defender turns in to make the play and you take them down, it's holding. He wasn't flagged for holding for say, grabbing a handful of jersey, it was tackling the defender in the middle of the running lane. They will call it every time.

The Ravens have found the Steelers weakness. The Ravens have earned 84% of their first downs by gain through the air in the 2 games they have played the Steelers this year. That's just disgusting.
