Re: The Non Game Balls!
Eh.. if Ward makes that pick up and scores, Rande El would be lauded as brilliant for cashing in on a great opportunity.
If he deserves a non-game ball, he deserves it for dropping 3 passes, not the lateral. At least with the lateral, he learned a good lesson. He shouldn't ever try that again.
IMO, the Non-game balls go to: Secondary (12 for 12 in the 4th? nice coverage there), Offensive Line (uh.. wtf?), and Cowher for continuing to play "his way" instead of adjusting to the team you're facing.
