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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

G.C.

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.

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

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?

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.

    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.    
    • I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.   Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.   I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.    Welcome to HSO!
    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
