Pulling for the Bengals until......

You can see Burfict pull his elbow in bracing for impact, head up calculating all the way the cheap shot he delivered rather than simply taking one step left avoiding contact. This was a choice this POS has displayed on the field over and over.

or, taking a step right and just HITTING Brown. Every opportunity to deliver a proper hit if he wanted to "claim" that he was trying to take down a ball carrier, or pull off the route entirely. He stays the course, lines him up and delivers an intentional shot to the head. THAT'S NOT AN ACCIDENT. Hard play happens every play every week and this crap DOESN'T HAPPEN. Why? Because these athletes are trained to know the difference and to be able to react. They've done it their whole lives. Burfict knew what he was doing and where he was hitting him. Antonio didn't move into that hit and even the guy draped over his back had enough time to react and try to actually hold him UP all while Burfict was preparing to deliver the hit.

This all goes back to Marvin Lewis imo. When we played them after the ankle twisting incidents he said in his presser he didn't see a problem with what vontaze did.  Later in the week of course he got fined. (Vontaze).  When a coach condones or turns a blink eye this this type of play, it is he that should be held accountable to some degree.

Pacman call should not have been made. The Steeler coaching staf has no reason being on the field in the first place. I feel that warrants a penalty first or worst case flag both sides.

People will coo and caw because of the end result and his reputation, but unless you've played the game I don't think you quite understand how fast things happen in those situations. Again, I think his reputation which he has earned played a part.

Yes, things happen fast.... YET, some make the right and some make the wrong decisions !! Burfict is a POS, period...

The entire Cincinatti organization looked like poo because of this game, and actually made me happy to see the steelers win.  Vontaze Burfict, the coaches still sending him out there, and the fans throwing poo at an injured player...all of it was just awful.

Purposeful hit to the head of a defenseless receiver if you can't see that........

Geez I just hope Antonio Brown can return to his normal form of dominance. After taking a hit like this I would not fault someone one bit if their willingness to play football faded. I'm sure he will hear concerns from many family members and friends. Just like the odell hit, this blow to the head could've killed him.

I'm still iffy about that game.

 

 

Burfict should have been called,  I'm not going to argue intent,  I did enough of that last night.   But regardless of the intent,  a blow like that to the head will get flagged every time.

 

The Gio hit is what got me. How was that not a flag?  Gio was a receiver,  almost every receiver that has his head nearly taken off on a helmet to helmet hit,  is gonna draw a flag.    To me,  this wouldn't have been too bad if just  a quarter earlier,  the refs did not jump the gun and toss a flag out against the Bengals,  because a Bengals player hit a Steelers receiver shoulder to shoulder,  and the shoulder pad inadvertently slid up to graze the helmet of the Steelers player.           The flag helped the Steelers score.

 

I also still do not know what a catch is.    The Steelers' TD catch was athletic as hell,  but I've seen some refs rule would-be TDs like that as incomplete,  because the receiver didn't control the ball as he was moving out of bounds.   Basically,  if the refs saw the ball bobbing around  as the receiver went OOB,  it didn't matter if the receiver followed up and finally secured it,  it would still be ruled incomplete.

definitely a penalty and burfict is definitely the biggest piece of poo in the game and deserves a lifetime ban.  bengals still got shafted though, if only the bryant "td" catch itself.  bernard was also speared helmet to helmet by shazier and that shoulda been called.  that wasn't incidental helmet to helmet contact.  that was spearing on a defenseless receiver (i believe he was a receiver at that point, my memory could be wrong though).  either way it was spearing.

That's a damn clean hit. Shazier is 6'. Gio is probably 5'4" in reality. Shazier did not purposely go after his head. He even went with his head lowered toward the chest. Can't help that Gio is short.

he speared.  he launched with his helmet, can't do that.  height has nothing to do with it.  he should have been tackling with his shoulder and arms, not helmet.

My dad and I were talking about that.  He either condones it or has no control whatsoever.  That was his last game as the head coach imo.

I call it poetic justice, Marvin Lewis response after Burfict tried to purposely injure our players outside the lines of football and making a play, told me everything about that team.

Burflict went on a to display why he is probably one of the dirtiest players in the league and possibly in the history of the game.

The lack of discipline Between him and Adam Jones (supposedly team leaders) is why they lost that game. 

I am so happy that our leaders on our team have the discipline under control.   Yeah we have an occasional stupid play but under no circumstances do we ever get that out of control. 

Thank Dave (and Marty) for picking players that don't have the THUG mentality and cost us a game like they just did.

 

 

These penalties will probably seal the deal for Coach Marvin Lewis. Can't control his players, can't win the big playoff games. Can't control thugs like Burfect and Pacman.
