Super Bowl Question....last play...pass or fumble?

Recommended Posts

Hammer Handle

Was his hand going forward?

Should there have been a review from upstairs?

Looked like a fumble to me. I believe they looked at it upstairs and didn't think it was necessary for it to go down for the field refs to look at.

pass. If someone would have caught it, would have it been a reception or a fumble recovery?

No doubt, with under two minutes left in the game, it should have been reviewed. Just think what would have happen if someone from the Cardnials picked it up and ran it in for a TD.

You know Pittsburg would have challenged it saying it was a pass.

Thought it was a pass and yes they should have looked at it closer.

I like Larry Fitzgeralds chances at a jump ball in the endzone!

It should have been reviewed by the refs on the field just to give wondering fans piece of mind. I didn't like how it ended so quickly...It was the last play of the SUPER BOWL. I understand the booth upstairs will look at the same thing as the refs on the field, so their decision was probably right. But the end seemed hurried and left me wondering what could have been.

Also Refs should have called the ball/prop penalty for 15 yards on the kickoff. couldve been a different game...

Al Michals said they reviewed it upstairs, and IMO it was a FUMBLE>>>>>>>>. Yes his arm was getting moved forward by the rusher, from the side.

I was watchin the game and with the DVR I backed up and looked at it several times. I really think his arm was coming forward. With the defender coming in on Warner I didn't see any other way the ball could have gone that far forward if something wasn't propelling it.

If you see the replay again you can see Warner's gloved hand pushing the ball forward around the arm of defender.

I just couldn't believe that they take so much time to review other plays, and not this one?

The Super Bowl is on the line, and you don't take the extended time to review?

Notice how fast the Steelers got the next play off. They knew what they had to do.

Most definite...pass. That is why the ball went FORWARD. If it had been a fumble and the rusher got to him before the arm started going forward then the ball would have squibbed around near his feet. It clearly went 4 or 5 yards forward in the air. That tells me it was a pass. Could not believe that the booth did not slow things down quicker and Pitt was all over the quick snap! Too bad, I would have loved to see a jump ball in the end zone one last time.

Just by the mix of responses here it seems it could have gone either way. I thought it was too close to call and should have definately been reviewed upstairs. I was amazed that they didn't take their time with this one and look at it closer. If I had to pick one way or another, I would say it looked like his arm was going forward and it should have been an incomplete pass. Cardinals should have had one more play to give Fitz a chance in the endzone.

Faster,

Asking the same question that somebody else asked. If that was a fumble and went forward 4 yards and was caught by a reciever would it have been a catch? If it had been a catch then by rule it can not be a fumble. I think you may want to rethink your logic on this one.

I think it was a pass. Arm going forward, hand on the ball. The game was good, the officiating was poor.

Incomplete pass. The celebration was a little much, but I didn't think it was classless though, but should have had a flag thrown too.

The defender hit Warner before his arm came forward and the ball came loose. The defender than deflected the ball forward at the same rate as Warner’s arm making it appear as he pushed the ball forward. Not the case.

It was close, but the correct call was a fumble.

My opinion

Does anyone know what down it was when this play happened.

I want to think it was 3rd down. Kickoff, then had 2 short passes for 1st downs, but had to burn both their TO's, followed by two incompletes?

Well it seems to be if you wanted Arizona it was a pass, and if Pitt was your choice, then it was a fumble.

I don't know, I think it was a pass myself, and I was rooting for AZ, but it was a close play and since the officials called it a fumble, probably not enough evidence to try and reverse it.

I swear they said the ruling came from above and not on the field. You are correct, it was close, but I will stick with a FUMBLE. I did have Pittsburgh, but I was losing either way due to the spread.

Did anyone else think they blew the play dead as soon as the ball came out? I swore I heard a whistle right after the ball hit the groud, this thought was furthered by the fact that the AZ O-line did not react to the ball at all?

I thought it looked like a pass but being as it was called a fumble it would be hard to reverse, but it deffinatly should have been looked at more.

      Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Hi there, Polarized sunglasses of lens color like a grey base lens with a blue mirror is the way to go or for freshwater and inshore an amber, rose or copper lens with a green mirror are lenses that can be worn. My father is also a fisherman, So, I bought wholesale sun glasses for him from some useful sites. I always prefer to buy sunglasses in bulk, as buying bulk gives a number of choices to wear and it is also affordable in cost.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.
