Black Sunday

We here at LomHenn.com are trying something a little different. We've decided to do live posts during the Super Bowl. We are anxiously awaiting the start of this years facade that is a "Championship" game. As always, the media have already given us plenty of fodder. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. I know we will!!!

Click on the "comments" link below to see the fun. You can also email myself, Slut, Zinglebert, and Lom if you'd like to comment, too.

Since I'm "The Football Guy", I need to get this going first.

Three experts in the pregame...Tony Dungy, Mike Holmgren and Matt Millen...

Well...two out of three ain't bad!

I think it's terrible you don't see Tony Dungy as an expert.

I have a pre-pregame comment. I just KNOW the National Anthem is going to suck. NOT the song mind you, but the "performer". Cause after all...it IS about the singer, right? NOT!

Jennifer Hudson has a great voice. Unfortunately, she will probably try to show us how great her voice is, instead of just singing the song.

2:10 w/o the music. I've heard worse--she held fairly true to the song, for the most part.

I meant 2:10 not counting the music.

OK, so it wasn't horrible. I've heard a LOT worse. Still, it was a little showey towards the end, but not miserable. I stand corrected.

What's the over/under on Brenda Warner camera shots? I'll put it at 9 and a half.

We're at one so far--which came when Kurt was announced as the Walter Payton award winner.

Your lineman can't tackle you into the endzone can he?

February 1, 2009 at 6:39 PM  
Blogger Slut Bunwalla said...

I don't think they can overturn it, but I think that should have been a penalty on the Steelers' offensive lineman for grabbing Big Ben and taking him into the end zone.

February 1, 2009 at 6:42 PM

No such thing as a one-foot line.

Blogger Zinglebert Bembledack said...

I was happy to see Arizona hold the Steelers to a FG. It was wise to challenge the TD call.

February 1, 2009 at 6:47 PM  
Blogger Slut Bunwalla said...

By the way, on the lineman-assist thing, this is from the nfl.com rulebook:

No player on offense may assist a runner except by blocking for him.

Should have been a penalty--though I'm sure the Steelers still would have gotten a FG. It would have saved a challenege for Arizona, though.

Alex's first question to Wisenhunt was a GREAT one, huh?

Yes, let's ask the genious of the the Detroit Lions potent offense what the Cardinals should do in the second half.

February 1, 2009 at 8:04 PM  
Blogger Slut Bunwalla said...

I think the replay review ended up with the right call, but Al Michaels seems to not understand it at all. Michaels kept saying that it wasn't a touchdown because "the ball was on Fitzgerald's leg, then it hit the ground." That's irrelevant! One angle showed that Harrison's elbow hit the ground before the rest of his body (namely his shoulders and head), and it looked that maybe the ball wasn't in yet. Again, I'm not sure it wasn't across the goal line, so not overturning the call on the field was the right call, IMHO.

The point is--and Michaels should learn this--t's where the BALL is when the runner's knee or elbow is down. When the ball hits the ground is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

The roughing the passer call was kinda weak--I'm not sure that warranted a penalty.

Also, why wasn't Big Ben called for intentional grounding? I don't think he was outside the tackle box.

The ball was starting to move before Warner got rid of it, but he provided the impetus on the ball to move it forward--that should have been an incomplete pass. At the VERY least, you have to review it.
