That was such a good game, all the way through. You couldn’t tell for sure who was going to come away with it, but by the end we sure knew the answer.
Maybe I’ll be blasted for trying to find an excuse, but I don’t think that’s what it is. Maybe those refs need better screen on the sidelines, or just better glasses, but that Holmes TD to win it for Pittsburgh was not a catch. Look at his feet, with the way his right foot was lying on top of his left foot, there is no way he could’ve gotten it down.
It would require one foot to be an inch longer than the other, and there was a camera angel that showed it, but maybe it takes more than 50 inches of HD vision to spot it; I don’t know.

I’ll even concede the fumble with 5 seconds to go even though Warner’s arm was moving forward, his control of the ball was questionable with the ball against his shoulder pad before it popped out.
But there you have it, the Steelers have won a sixth Super Bowl, maybe it was payback for a few years ago with the bad call against the Raiders, who knows.
