We're up 10 points at half and still I'm so ****ing pissed off right now.

I hear you! We're up 10, shutting out the Steelers... why am I not happy?

- AJ may be gone for the season
- Tate is hurt
- Dominating the game, but only up 10
- Dumb ass penalties!

And by the way, Manning blocked the kick, so he kept 3 points off the board for the Steelers, but prevented the Texans from getting 7 more...

A bigger question: Why in the NFL is that even a penalty to begin with?

If the player could not have reasonably made a play on that return, it should be like the rule where a WR cannot catch a ball (uncatchable pass) there is no penalty.

Halfway pissed at Manning, halfway pissed at petty NFL rules that nullify great plays like that.

It is a bit silly.

Right now the Steelers are lucky to be down 10.

I hope Kubiak is destroying the locker room with a pick axe right now.

He has to get control of this team and tell them that THIS is the defining second half of the whole season. THIS 2nd HALF of football is the season.

God I hope he's not in there namby-pamby, cool and collected, trying to instill peace in his players. With AJ's injury, with the lack of that TD at the end of the half, he needs to tell EVERY SINGLE PLAYER is replaceable after today's game if they continue to be sloppy and blow their opportunities.

And why is that a penalty in the first place?
That is a horseshit call.

Why is there no penalty for PI when the ball is thrown 20 feet away from the WR? Becuase it doesn't affect the play.

A block (IN THE SIDE) "in the back" 15 yards behind the play has no bearing on the play and should not have been called.

These refs bet on the Steelers. This is the biggest bunch of crap I've ever seen from guys in stripes

My beef is, after running the play again, Manning pulled up even with the kicker before he hit him. And he made contact with his shoulder/side. The kicker stumbled fwd after the contact and it looked - at real speed - like a block in the back.

It was a suspect call IMHO.

On the other hand, no way that kicker was going to catch Joseph so Manning didn't really need to make contact at all.

Yep. The NFL rules system AND the inconsistency in ref crews is a disaster in situations like today.

Look, I think it's best of we just run the ball and throw 5-yard routes all day. We can win the game IN SPITE OF THE REFS if we do that. They're just gonna' call holding on us on the long passing plays.

In the case of Manning if you do that then you jeopardize the success of the team by alot.

this team has held the steelers to 7 points midway through the 3rd Q. We should be clobbering them, but this offense does what it always does -- screw up and go soft at the worst possible time.

Unfortunately I'm coming around to the same point of view. Kubiak is a great O-coord, and his player coaching is excellent on that side of the ball, but the whole demeanor of the team seems to be soft under him.
