    this is a dark day for the NFL and its fans.

    I can't help but think if the Patriots could have somehow made it to the Superbowl, they would have been screwed out of it....

    I guess its better this way, i'd rather be screwed in the second round of the playoffs than in the Super Bowl...

    What I don't get from people who make this justification, is why does one team have to overcome both their own mistakes and the refs? If their mistakes were too much to overcome, then so be it, but we won't know with the horrible officiating. Pittsburgh was terrible too, especially the 2 picks by Big Ben, what about that? They didn't have to overcome the officials though, just the turnovers. It's ridiculous.

    all right dude .you win . i just like to seperate the bad plays and refs .if the the other team makes mistakes thats them. i expect a team to consistently mistake free before just blaming the refs.refs were part of the loss but so are the seahawks.

    Tell you the truth I see Hasselbeck as the only positive on Paul Allen's payroll. He isn't allowed to do what Tom does because Holmgren is a control freak - he calls every play himself and is prone to overthinking. The wheels fell off Matt's wagon late but basically his receivers let him down. Porter was right, Jeremy Stevens is wothless. Although so was Porter and even Polamalu for most of the night. You can have Alexander too. I hear Seattle players joke that he isn't even the MVP of his team, and they are right.

    But the story here tonight is the continuing debaucle known as playoff officiating. The NFL has a real problem on it's hands. They need to go to full time officials and they need to put replay in the booth at least during the playoffs with either Periera or Kukar or Hoculie in that booth. They need to make pass interference a 15 yard infraction either way and make it a reviewable call.

    Well I guess the media got the story they wanted - the Bus stops here. LOL

    Why? Why do they have to be mistake free? Teams win all the time while making mistakes. Every team makes mistakes. I would say that the Seahawks made less mistakes tonight than Pittsburgh, in fact. It's just that their fatal mistake was not being favored by the referees.

    Was that a Freudian slip NEM - you said he will have a Super Bowl trophy, rather than he won one. And I agree it will be one. :D

    here is a seattle fan comment on espn


    "Dan (Seattle)
    a note to my fellow Seahawk Fans: Champions focus only on the factors that they can control, such as dropped passes and sloppy penalties. Those factors are what cost us this game. Hopefully Jerramy Stevens plays for someone else next year.

    Absolutely amazing incompetence in clock management by Seattle. When they should have been trying a fieldgoal, they take two shots at the horizontal pass to the sideline, finally completing one for the in-bounds tackle in the last 30 seconds.

    Yes, their "two-minute drill" was absolutely pathetic. That was the point where I actually began drawing comparisons to the SB and the preseason. Who could tell the difference, except for an expensive commercial every few minutes.

    I remember the SBs of old, where one team was utterly blown out in a ridiculously lopsided game, but the dominance of the winning team never made me feel as if the game of football had just slid downhill, as it did here. THIS is the end result of parity. We had a few years of some great SBs and now this is where it's headed. No blowouts, just two teams stumbling around hoping that the clock runs out while they have a lead.

    Look who is on the post-game show...

    ...on NFL Network:
    Ray Lewis.
    The murderer.
    Who received a one-year suspended sentence.
    For murder.
    Who received NO punishment from the NFL.
    For murder.
    Who, one year later, is holding the Lombardi Trophy.
    What a complete, utter disgrace.
    God help the first Steeler fan who tells me what a great game it was last night.
