RE: Fitz's TD

What I want to know is why Taylor was in press coverage, on a long yardage down, at that point in the game, with no over the top help.

Back to the topic at hand, The first three drives the Steeler's made got them down the field in good fashion, but only netted one TD. That was the about end of the offensive output until the last drive end of the game.

From what I understand, these many years later, was that Both (C) Hartwig, and (RG) Stapleton's knees were trashed and were given fits by the Cardinal DL. As we all know, BA LOVED to run right, and when your RG has 40 year old knees on a 20 year old's body, it ain't going to be good.

As for the Safety, Hartwig saw the stunt coming, but just couldn't get all the way into position to use proper leverage. For all intensive purposes, Hartwig got run over more than he held the guy. It was a good play call, as was the slant on first down that was defended.

The second down running play, a head scratcher call, the counter, our bread and butter play for umpteen years is not one you typically run in your deep end. Unfotunately, Kemo ran outside the tackle box, but Parker took it inside behind Stapleton who had no leverage on his man. It was a freakin' miracle Parker made it out of the endzone.

I would think that most people's favorite playcall would be the game winning TD pass. Also, the sneak was originally a TD and was very questionably overturned. And the playcall on the safety was excellent, if Hartwig hadn't gotten run over, the game would have been put on ice.

If Ben hadn't led them down the field to score a TD and win the game, that wouldn't have mattered. And I imagine you would probably point out over and over that it was Arians and Ben's faults that the Steelers lost. But they don't get credit for engineering an unbelievable 90+ yard drive to win? Come on.

That was a joke and a shot at the "Tomlin won with Cowher's team" haters.

Check out the 25:00 mark- worst playcall in a Superbowl ever. You are thinking of a different drive. I am talking about the Steelers drive where they had 2 1st and goals due to roughing the kicker and still couldn't score against the 27 ppg allowed Cardinals D. Umm Hartwig's holding was a safety because RUTM, RUTM, 3rd and 10 Ben help!!! doesn't work.

Everyone knew the Steelers would be calling pass plays on the final drive. There were no surprises. Ben and Santonio executed. Period. Ben played maybe the best game of his career. He was awesome in Superbowl 43. Arians not so much.

Harrison should have received MVP honors- no credit for 100+ touchdown return. Come on. Steelers don't win that game without that play and Arians did not have a God damn thing to do with it.

Arians did have a hand in two 3 and outs in the 4th though, and the failed red zone series where they had 6 chances to score from the 5 yard line.
