Steelers' Keisel: Manning tipped Pittsburgh to key goal-line play

Interesting story from ESPN.com today:

"I was watching Eli's lips the whole time and I saw him say, '32,' so I went over and tried to tell everyone, 'It's right here,' and we stopped it," Keisel said. "That was a big play in the game."

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.

"I'm guessing it's the 2-drop, which is right off center-guard," Keisel said. "And that's the play they ran and we stopped them. I'm proud of our defense. Our defense played their tails off."

So how do we feel about this??  I don't know exactly what to say.  Its a little frustrating, and part of me blames at least some of this on the predictability of the play-calling (ie blame Gilbride).

 

However, wouldn't you think that the GMen would have a different play calling system than one that is so easily deciphered by the D?

 

Although I guess it doesn't matter.  The GMen won, right??
