    Harrison should have been thrown out of the game for his outright thuggery.

    Eh. Can't believe I'm saying this, but they are some rules (very few) that I just prefer the refs ignore. Unless the celebration is an obvious taunt, let it go. Welker should not have been fined either. But I'm not going to call for Holmes to be fined to make things fair. I'd rather call for Welker's fine to be returned.

    I'm OK with celebrating something big.
    I hate guys running 5 yards, and pounding their chests/flexing their muscles/humping/dancing after they make a tackle. Especially when they are way behind. :mad:

    Is this the part where I make a joke about America never being ready for a Super Bowl champion Eagles?

    One little problem with that theory: If it was a forward pass it was grounding which moves you back 10 yards.

    The zebras called both plays fumbles at first because they were afraid of another Hochuli call...instead of blowing a whistle they let the play go and figure it'll get overturned if it was really a pass. That happened with the challenge...the replay booth gave the last play a quick look-over and decided not to buzz down to the ref. Probably right since Harrison had his hands on the ball when Warner's arm was going back. There wasn't enough to overturn it, but they should have reviewed it for show.

    1 sample (i.e. season) isn't exactly a large statistical universe for such an assumption. Now with
    the Eagles, the situation is somewhat different. :mischief:

    It wouldn't of been intentional grounding because when you are physically impeded by making the throw by the defence, it can't be intentional grounding. If it would of been grounding it wouldn't of mattered either way because ten seconds would of run off the clock.

    Intentional grounding is about intent. If the play is ruled incomplete, then that means the Steelers had deflected the pass and therefore no intentional grounding.

    I agree with your second paragraph, but I think there was a chance it could have been overturned.

    Worry not. Just flinging around fecal matter as usual. :)
