Well, I totally disagree with that.

I don't know if Warner had a hooker last night or just impure thoughts but Jesus sure stuck it to him there before halftime

I have zero financial or rooting interest in this game. I don't think any of the penalties against the Cardinals were bad calls except possibly for the most recent roughing-the-passer call (which I haven't yet seen on replay).

I would also guess that to the extent that the major sports books have unbalanced action on the game, they would have received more wagers on the Steelers and thus want the Cardinals to win.

Running over the holder? I've never even heard of that before. That's momentum more than anything.

fair enough

I realize there can not be unlimited challenges.

I just think if the Cards challenge one more and they win that one, too.

They should still have one more.

I am not a huge football fan

but, both the holder and kicker are very vulnerable and need rules so they don't get murdered

The roughing-the-passer call looks pretty poor to my eye upon review.

I do think the challenge rules need to be overworked, because as it is referees are biased in favor of allowing a play to continue if there is doubt over the correct call (and thus forcing teams to call challenges if they are wrong).

The roughing-the-holder call is pretty standard.

Sick play by Fitzgerald, very well designed.
