I'm still surprised Harbaugh didn;t challenge that play. iodah of a move by that ball and they wouldve negated it.

To me it wouldve been worth the toss.

I believe he could've scored if he had put two hands on the rock instead of one.

I second the possibility of that play being challenged and overturned.

You just never know what the refs will see on the replay.

BEST USE OF A HELMET:

Antonio Browns awesome 58-yard, Tyree-style catch.

SECOND BEST USE OF A HELMET:

Ike Taylor bonking T.J. Douchemangina in the head for shooting his mouth off.

I still get shivers remembering what Earl Campbell did with his helmet against a Rams player on that infamous spearing play. I can't come up with a better use for a helmet than that (possible exception, Tyree just because of who it was against), as horrific as it looked and must have felt. A very different NFL back then...

"... PERSONAL-FOUL...




... taunting the defense by holding the ball against his helmet during a play...



James Harrison will be fined $50,000 for this flagrant act..."


yes, nycdan, the Tyler Rose flattened Isiah Robertson on that play

I thought the same thing at the time, but I think Harbs made the right decison in not challanging.

It looked like a catch to me, so I doubt it would've gotten overturned. With that in mind, it's not worth the risk of losing a TO. With less than 2:00 left in the game and needing a TD (I know the Steelers hadn't scored yet, but the Ravens had to consider the fact they would probably would), TOs are a premium. Especially considering the Steelers still had the ball on their own 4. Three plays can eat up a lot of time.
