As bad as the replacement officials have been over the first three weeks of the season, there remains a line that coaches and players should not cross. Arguing calls is one thing, but coaches shouldn’t be grabbing refs after the game or chasing them down in the locker room and swearing at them. And players certainly shouldn’t be saying what Larry Foote reportedly said to the officiating crew after Pittsburgh’s loss to Okland. According to Jory Rand of KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, the Steelers linebacker made it a point to get to the locker room at the same time as the officials following the game. “You should go kill yourselves,” Foote allegedly yelled. “Ya’ll (bleep)ing suck.” Rand said several officials turned their heads to see who had yelled it. He also said Foote had left the room by the time reporters got the chance to ask him about his comment.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are back on the practice field on Tuesday before heading off to the bye week and Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports via Twitter that both linebacker James Harrison (knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) are getting work in today.

Larry Foote to the replacement refs: ”You should go kill yourselves”

According to Jory Rand of KDKA-TV Pittsburgh, Steelers linebacker Larry Foote yelled ‘”you should go kill yourselves” at the replacement officials as he entered the locker room at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Raiders.

Steelers Versus Raiders Game Rewind – Second Half Notes

Rookie Kelvin Beachum starts the second half with a false start. Ben Roethlisberger was off the mark trying to drop a deep ball into Mike Wallace and the Steelers are facing second and long. On third down Roethlisberger misses Antonio Brown on the right sideline that would have likely moved the chains. The Steelers quarterback was able to make a clutch throw to Wallace on third down...

Steelers Larry Foote Reportedly Tells Replacement Refs You should Kill Yourselfs

Raiders Cut Block On Steelers DE Ziggy Hood Was Legal

Several have emailed me asking me if the cut block performed by Oakland Raiders right tackle Willie Smith on Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood late in the Sunday game was an illegal chop block.

The root of the Steelers loss to the Raiders

The final score was 31-34 in Oakland, which is a place the Pittsburgh Steelers generally play poorly. However, if the Steelers were going to lose in Oakland most would have expected an offense that couldn’t move the ball while giving up touchdowns on special teams and turnovers. While there were turnovers and special teams were leaky, that wasn’t why the Steelers lost the game...
