Pittsburgh Steelers fans are furious, and rightfully so. After the officiating crew botched a would-be game-winning touchdown call, which ultimately led in the loss to the Patriots, fans wanted blood.
Although they physically couldn’t get what they wanted, a Steelers win, leave it to injured linebacker Ryan Shazier to say what everyone was thinking on his verified Twitter account.
Man that’s some bull shit that was a catch man. I don’t give a damn what anyone say. #NEvsPIT— Ryan Shazier (@RyanShazier) December 18, 2017
Shazier, who was placed on injured reserve last week, was at the game and was seen in public for the first time since sustaining his back injury vs. the Bengals in Week 13. If you weren’t aware of the play in question, which I’m sure you are, Shazier also retweeted this GIF of the controversial play.
If this isn't a catch I have no idea what is... #NFL #NEvsPIT #HereWeGo— Sports Burd (@Sports_Burd) December 18, 2017
The sting of this game will last a long time, but the Steelers still have a lot to play for in the final two weeks. A first round bye is still a very real possibility, and with injuries mounting it certainly would be great to not have to play on Wild Card weekend for the first time in a long time.
In the meantime, it was great to see Shazier at the game, and we here at BTSC are praying for his ongoing recovery.
