Keisel made a hell of a play by getting almost two yards in the backfield at the bottom of that pile. He really stuffed the hole for Jacobs.

One thing about the article, though: how can someone overhear someone mouthing something? Mouthing it implies that his lips were moving, but no sound was coming out. Just curious.

the officiating was pretty horrible. there were a few missed DPI calls on Smith and Plax including a blatant shirt grab when Plax was going for one in the endzone.

Exactly. I was yelling about the Plax play, and I still can't understand why they didn't get the flag when even Troy Aikman admitted it was illegal.

So Eli tips him to the play and they STILL lost the game.

READ THE ARTICLE:

Asked if he heard Manning yell out the play call, Keisel said, "Yeah."

By hearing "32," Keisel deduced the Giants would run the ball behind right guard Chris Snee.

The Giants are too predictable. Manning should have seen how the Steeler defense was stacked towards the run up the midde. Why not try faking a handoff and run and end around play. Try something different for once.

The Steelers should of won the game,as they choked in 4th quarter offensively,and should of lowered the boom on Eli,on several occasions.

And, if you watch the replay of Boss' winning touchdown catch, you'll see he almost stumbled and fell on his own before catching the ball.

The Giants won because they stuck with the run, even though it wasn't working, while the Steelers went all pass, which results in sacks and interceptions.

I totally agree with you man. That's our OC bruce arians calling those passes. he was promoted from wide receivers coach and thinks that passing the ball is the answer. The steelers don't commit to the run anymore.

How about the Giants defense. One big run play and one big pass play given up. Besides that, forced punt after forced turnover with knockdowns and sacks all around. Because of the Giants D they were able to get great field position all game and kick 4 field goals.

The giants D was stout to be sure. I thought both defenses did a great job. the difference was the play at offense. the giants moved the ball in the fourth quarter and the steelers did not.

Brett Keisel said it was a big play in the game? Memo to Keisel, YOU LOST! What's the big deal?

Hey don't try to take something away from the goal line stand. it was awesome. sure they lost the game but the titans are the only undefeated team so what's your beef? The steelers D held the #1 rushing team to 83 yards. that's a positive even with the L.

A Steeler fan trying to find a silver lining in a rain cloud. It didn't make a difference in the outcome of the game, that's all I'm saying.

Give me a break, I could have told they were going to run it.

I don't believe they heard Eli. I'm more inclined to believe that the Steelers were listening in to the play call being radioed in to Manning's helmet, then relayed the play to their defensive player wearing the radio helmet.

Hey a loss is a loss. All I'm saying is that the steelers didn't expect to go undefeated and losing to last years champs isn't a bad thing...now losing to the browns would be bad. lol.
