Default It was a touchdown. No really.

First up,big shout out to ''BIG BEN'',all you haters can say what you want,the bottom line is Ben comes through in the clutch. That's two weeks in a row, ''clutch''! The winning touchdown was legal because, unlike a rusher approaching the goal line,the receiver's feet came down in the e-zone with possesion of the ball,just as if the ball was thrown to the sideline or the back of the e-zone,that's a touchdown. The catch itself, breaks the plain. The titans ain't ready. Gooooo STEELERS!!!!!

People are going to argue semantics on this all week long but you're right, as long as one part of the ball crosses the front of the goal line it's a touchdown and while it was close, I don't think there is any arguing the reversal - altough I'm sure a lot of ratbird fans want to do that!

But as you said, bottom line WE WON!!

Bring on the Titans!

Only way i can explain it is this.. when a receiver catches a ball for a first down and fall back to where his knees are a half yard short is it a first down? And another thing about the replay booth what angles are they looking at? Are they same as what is being played on TV?? This si th epart of replay i dont know. Maybe he had a different angle that showed the ball clearly across the line?Any way it is a moot point and we are North Champions

They just showed it again. Even Peckerhead Collingsworth said it was a touchdown. The overhead shot clearly showed the ball breaking the plane.

Steelers 13

Ratfinks 9

End of story.

P.S. That was definitely a TD and I'd feel the same way if the tables were turned.

Did Collinsworth change his opinion? On the NBC program before the sunday night game he said it was not a TD.

Yeah, right before the pencil-necked geek insinuated the game was a gift from the refs on the overturned call. I hate that douche.

You know, even if it didn't, how often are balls caught fully out of bounds in the back of the endzone? Two feet in, ball in outstretched hands out of bounds? Happens fairly frequently I think and all of those are touchdowns.

Just watched it. They had the regular side view as well as an overhead shot. No question. TD!!! Not even Collinsworth could argue with it. The other guys said they would overturn the call, but they probably lost money on the game.

The call probably shouldn't have been overturned. I don't think it was conclusive evidence.

HOWEVER, it was a touchdown. So in the end, they got it right - which is all that matters.
