The last NFL Hangover of the season is here.
Their first drive (effectively) ended on a touchdown run by Ben Roethlisberger on third-and-short. But Ken Whisenhunt challenged it. Or at least we were told that he did. I never saw him throw the flag. I am convinced Mike Holmgren ran off the NBC set, ripped the red flag out of Whisenhunt’s pocket and hurled it off of referee Terry McAulay’s face. Either way, the touchdown was overturned, and Mike Tomlin settled for a field goal, becoming the youngest coach to settle for a field goal in Super Bowl history.
And, just a reminder, I’m chatting here today at 2:00 p.m. EST.
UPDATE: Here is the chat transcript.
