    Patriots accuse the Steelers of unnecessary violence
    By MJD

    No one was in too bad of a mood in the Patriots locker room Sunday night; not after the way they handled the Steelers in their own building.

    They weren't completely without complaint, though. A couple of the Patriots felt like the Steelers were taking liberties when plays were over, with some extra shoving, grabbing, twisting, giving of the business, etc.

    That had enforcer Mankins, aka the Patriots' starting left guard, explaining why there was some extra pushing and shoving after Brady's score, as Mankins was locked up with safety Troy Polamalu.

    "We don't care how long your hair is, we're not going to let you do what you want to our quarterback," Mankins said.

    Brady wasn't the only one on the receiving end of what left tackle Matt Light felt were unnecessary blows.

    "There was a lot of extra sugar being tossed out around there, late in these plays," Light said. "The guy would be down on the ground and you'd see unnecessary stuff happening, like they're torquing his head when the play is clearly over. Those are the kind of things that get you fired up."

    The Polamalu/Brady incident is depicted pretty well in the picture above. Brady couldn't be any more down by contact if he tried, and there's Polamalu, still trying to cram his head back to the other side of the goal line.

    I wouldn't call Polamalu dirty over that -- if a guy's right at the goal line, you're going to try to push him back, and hardly anyone stops right at the whistle in that situation. Obviously, there's a certain point where you have to stop, but it's not on the same level as yanking a fellow's peaches.

    There were at least 2 helmet to helmet plays against our Steelers last night, one being on Hines and the other I forget, but at the time I made comment of it...now I am waiting to hear if any fines come down this week.

    I do know one thing...the rule enforcement has for sure changed the way Harrison is playing.
