So, before you want to insult someone about a play or watching a game...get on youtube and watch it over and over again before you post and make sure that you are looking at every aspect. The lineman may have got to him but Ben still had the chance to get the ball out.
I have watched that play about 100 times now. Kemo got man-handled by Howard Green and Green got his hand in Ben's face hitting his shoulder before the ball was released. That being said, a split second before, Ben did a pump-fake in that same direction. If Ben throws instead of a pump fake, that's a touchdown for the Steelers. Bad play by both Ben and Kemo.
