CARDINALS MIFFED AT CALL ON WARNER’S FUMBLE
Posted by Aaron Wilson on February 2, 2009, 8:03 a.m.
NFL officials were adamant that Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner clearly fumbled in the closing seconds of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ dramatic victory in Super Bowl XLIII, a stance that Warner and coach Ken Whisenhunt disagreed with vehemently.

Warner thought his arm was coming forward when the football was punched out by Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley with five seconds left in the game and wanted an instant replay review from the booth.

“I was really surprised on that one because I was definitely moving my arm forward to throw the ball,” Warner said. “I thought I’d almost gotten the ball off, so yeah, it does surprise you that in that kind of situation — five seconds to go to decide the Super Bowl — you would think it was something they’d do.

“But maybe somebody saw it clearly. I don’t know what they see, and what makes then decide that, but I was actually on the sidelines expecting a review.”

However, NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira affirmed the replay official’s decision.

“We confirmed it was a fumble,” Pereira said. “The replay assistant in the replay booth saw it was clearly a fumble. The ball got knocked loose and was rolling in his hand before it started forward. He has to have total control.”

Whisenhunt was looking for a review, too, one that never came.

“I was hoping it would be,” Whisenhunt said. “I knew it was inside two minutes and it was a booth review. Obviousl, I would have liked to seen it replayed because it looked to me that Kurt was throwing the ball.”

For the game, the Cardinals were penalized 11 times for 106 yards.

Of course, even if Warner’s fumble had been ruled an incompletion, the Cardinals were looking at a situation where Warner would have been heaving a Hail Mary pass.

Default was a fumble

the last play of the game was a fumble!!! the ball was knocked loose before the arm started going foward!!!! no ifs and's or butts about it


did no one else see POLY get held on the one reception across the middle, the guys blocking had him by the jersey or arm one holding him while the receiver was running away!!!

I'd love a picture of that hold so I can bookmark it. I need as much ammo as possible for the morons who are saying the refs decided the game.

i think farrior got a penalty on that play for taking off his helmet. the "hail mary" would have been from the PIT 29!

the tuck rule must go! too much judgment involved, much like the force out.

OK, they would have spent twenty minutes reviewing it, and the same conclusion would have been made that the initial call of a fumble would have stood on the field. And the same people would STILL be bitching about it. Next.
