But did he make a football move?

I honestly think it was a catch and down by contact. It was a good non-call by Tomlin. IMO

Default Two for Tomlin

Mike Tomlin didn't challenge last weeks return when the returners' foot stepped out of bounds. Lost the shutout, no biggie.

Mike Tomlin didnt challenge the incomplete when the ball clearly never hit the ground and popped up into Ryan Clark's hands for the pick. Steelers won big, no biggie.

When will his poor decision making on (key) challenges cost the steelers a regular season game? A playoff game? It's only a matter of time.

Discuss.

It was a catch and down by contact. IMO After all he did have two feet down and possession then the ground can't cause a fumble.

Tomlin made a good non call on that one.

I thought Coach should've challenged the ruling made on that fumble caused by Polamalu's hit.

first off i'd like to say that was THE WORST call after a challenge i have ever seen...the man clearly caught the ball and was down by contact. that is what it should have been. how they came to the conclusion it wasn't a catch is beyond me. if it wasn't caught by him then it should have been an interception, because you can clearly see that the ball never touched the ground. what was the logic behind the ref saying "he barely got the second foot down," because if it is down...it is down. it doesn't matter if it is barely down or not.... after that ruling tomlin should have challenged that the ball touched the ground, therefore making it an interception

The way I saw it, the league owes us at least two apologies tomorrow. It's now known as the Polamalu Rule.

Well on that return last week, there was not a whole lot they could do about it. When they realized that he had stepped out of bounds, the bills had already snapped it.

It was down, and it was caught. There's only two things it could have been, a complete pass or an interception.

I invoke the right of the Polamalu Rule,

True, although I doubt someone up there did not know about it...
