Pittsburgh Steelers Avoid Getting Jobbed

Did you watch last night’s game between the Steelers and the Chargers? By now you know the Steelers won the game on a ballsy play call, where they ran Le’Veon Bell out of the wildcat, with five seconds left. Bell barely made it across the goal line with zero seconds left to win it outright for Pittsburgh.

Late in the game, when ChargersFan was singing “San Diego Stupid Chargers” and about to kick off, I had the thought they were in trouble. I thought they were in even more trouble when they ran off 18 seconds on the Steelers in a blatant piece of homerism.

Two plays in that game had me excited. The biggest was the touchdown run to win it. The first was Mike Vick’s only run of the night, where he went up the middle for 24 yards on a critical 3rd and 6:

How do you not love this action? I’m not a Steelers fan, but you like it when teams gamble a bit … especially when the losing team is a hated division rival.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
