    As a Steelers fan, I ‘m happy we won. However, it feels cheap. This game illustrated a convergence of refs being unable to officiate and supervise play on the field, head coaches being unable to control their players and assistant coaches and players not being able to control themselves with their season on the line. That observation pertains to both teams.

    As I was watching the best half of the XFL in 15 years, couldn’t wait for your take on it all. Awesome. You’re going to have so much au jus from this mammoth, we’ll see it dripping off your chin. A small feat for a radio guy. Enjoy. B+B will need an hour on Monday, and that’s only if nobody gets decapitated today!

    TAKEAWAY – If I’m AJ McCarron I’m thinking to myself “Hey, I just played in only my 4th NFL game – it was a PLAYOFF game, and if not for a couple of psychotic idiots I would have won. Pretty good start to my already sterling career. On top of that, I’m a millionaire, I got a smokin’ hot wife and now I get to take a 4 month vacation. I’m good.”

    Why didn’t the refs throw an “excessive celebration” flag when Burfict and 3 others ran 80 yds, thru the end zone and into the tunnel after his pick? I was hoping Pitt would stick it in their ears after that.
    What I found even worse was NFL Network’s Deion Sanders sticking up for what Burfict did on the headshot. He claimed Burfict was trying to avoid Brown so as not to do his “job” which is to “blow up” receivers at all times. His argument supporting Burficts actions was laughable and sad at the same time. I’m surprised Brown wasn’t paralyzed because he was out cold when he hit the turf. Cincy should cut Burfict, try to trade Pac Man and fire Marvin Lewis.

    I absolutely love it when knuckleheads get what’s coming to them.

    Shazier leads with the crown of his helmet several times a game. There was a catch by the Bengals’ TE in the first quarter, where he got hit high by a Steelers DB (but not in the head) and then in the small of the back by Shazier, with the crown. The crowd got on the officials for that one, too. Nobody remembers the first half because it was dull and the second half so memorable.

    Shazier is a talent, but if he keeps this up, his already injury-prone career will be cut short.
