  • You forgot the "chop block" against Hasselbeck. That has to be one of the worst calls I have ever seen, and definitely the worst call I've ever seen in the Superbowl.

    You're also forgetting the non-calls. On the critical holding penalty against Seattle, Pittsburgh was offsides. On the 3rd and 26, I heard (but have not confirmed) that Pittsburgh had men illegally downfield. The Porter horse collar. The should-have-been delay of game against Pittsburgh on 3rd and 8.

    True, Seattle did get a break on the 'dropped pass' that was actually a fumble - but it was moot in the end. It was a 3rd down play, and the kicker put it through the end zone, giving it to Pittsburgh about where they would have had it anyway.

    However, all that being said, Seattle ultimately screwed themselves. Holmgren's game plan sucked - why go to the pass so often when you've got the best rusher in the NFL (Alexander averaged over 4 yards per carry iirc)? Two missed (albeit long) field goals. The punter kicking through the end zone twice. That idiotic defense on 3rd and 26 where *every* linebacker was in coverage. Four dropped passes by Stevens.

    The officiating sucked but the Seahawks shot themselves in the foot too many times. They could have overcome it, but didn't.

    That hasn't removed the foul taste in my mouth about this game, though.
