You don't score until you score

I'm not saying the Cardinals got hosed or the refs blew it or the Steelers didn't win it or SanAntonio Holmes didn't do Amani Toomer proud with his toe-drag.

I'm just saying...



I will say that watching on TV, when they obviously showed 27 replays of the catch, it looked like he got both feet down and would have been impossible for the refs to overturn. Obviously they do not have the option to review still photographs, and that is definitely not a bad thing. Again, I'm only sayin'....

The Arizona Republic has an "up close" gallery up with a dozen still shots and angles, and I'll admit that 2 of them (photos 10 and 12) seem to show the pot-smoking/selling, rabbit-smashing, brain-hanging Super Bowl MVP dragging that second toe. None of this takes away from what was a truly awesome performance by both squads on Super Sunday.

BUT

I'm sayin'....

They put another pic that confirms it on Deadspin this morning, but you can see a little bit of red turf on the tip of his left cleat.

It's a good call and I appreciate the due diligence, albeit months after the fact. I can only assume that you've been checking off literally every web site ever, making sure that your beloved Steely McBeemers get the credit that everyone just refuses to give them....
This post was honestly meant to be a little bit more tongue-in-cheek and to see if people were really overreacting to it, or if everyone just sort of understood that it was a sick game and moved on. So thanks for being a part of that, and please do continue to show your support. I promise, it's appreciated.
