Default Overturned Ben TD

I know it doesn't matter but just for the sake if it, I would like to get your perspective on this.

I failed to see indisputable evidence that Ben was down before the ball crossed the line on his rushing TD. It seems that Ben had his back laying on a AZ player and it doesn't look like he ever touched the ground before the line.
The initial call was TD therefore I would like to know what made the refs overturn the call?

After a few replays, i was able to see that his knee hit the ground before he could stretch into the endzone. Would have liked the 7, but can take the 3

I'm glad they overturned it. The whiners are bitching about the refs enough as it is.

I agree although not so sure it should have been overturned.

Maybe I needed to see more replays cause it was far from being indisputable to me.

Ain't that the truth!

Cowboys fans have now come to the consensus in their forum that 4 of our SBs were awarded by the refs. The last two - and of course, the 2 we beat them.

What mental midgets.

They'll whine and bitch about everything anyway. They got 2 plays overturned, Ben's knee was down in the first one. The second one looked like a fumble. But the thing is, The Steelers overcome the bad calls. You get the job done no matter what.

Yah well, 50% of the cowboy players during their 3 titles were all cocaine induced junkies. You don't see anyone from Pittsburgh mentioning that do you?
