    Succup missed a gimme for the Chiefs, but the refs missed a call completely that would have given the Chiefs a do-over 5-yards closer. The Chargers put 7 guys on the right side on the LOS which is against the rules, and the refs missed it completely. Great day of football, but it would have been better if the Steelers made it into the playoffs.

    Also had a fumble by the Chargers, ala Texas game not called, although the whistle wasn't blown.

    and oh by the way they ran back a fumble for a TD. Forward motion stopped,
    Deja Vu for clone fans?

    I'm a firm believer that the only way to make these PART TIME sports officials better, is to pay them more and make them FULL TIME NFL officials so they can then concentrate ONLY on officiating NFL football!!!!! They are the ONLY professional American sports officials who are NOT full time!

    Not that I am crying any tears for the Boys but the delay of game call on them was pretty bad too.

    NFL says Chargers should have been flagged on KC's missed FG, allowing Chiefs to re-kick. If kick was good, Steelers would be in playoffs.

    Also got screwed by having Chris Conte playing defense.

    You should start a thread about it!

    You didn't think that "personal foul" penalty when the lineman tripped over Rodgers was correct??? That was a joke.

    Preferably with the exact same text, to drive the point home.

    When has Chris Conte played any defense? When he got that interception in the first half I literally yelled "It took all season but Conte finally made a play!" And then he immediately turned back into Chris Conte.

    Right or wrong, I would only expect that to get called if SD blocked the kick because of the imbalance.

    41 yards is not a gimmie - but one that is made a lot more often than missed.

    I doubt the Chiefs care. Their starters didn't even play.

    It didn't mean anything for the team, but I'm sure the guys who busted their *** for 60 minutes cared. Also heading into the playoffs with a 2 game losing streak is never a good thing.

    LOL. Do you only expect 12 men on the field to be flagged if that 12th man makes the tackle?
