Hell yes, I love all the trick plays the steelers throw out there. My favorite didn't count because Ward was lined up on the line too. They brought Bettis in next to Ben and when they snapped the ball, Ben did the immediate handoff and Bettis ran in untouched.
It was so fast, I don't think they could have stopped it even if they knew what the play was. But it was called back cause Ward was lined up wrong.
The seahawks did themselves in. You have to catch the pass for it to count. You can't miss 2 field goals especially when they are long field goals (they were inside so you can't blame the wind), and you have to know how to run the clock. http://www.superbowl.com/gamecenter/...060205_SEA@PIT
There were only 10 penalties in the game, so you can't say it was given away. They reversed the fumble call. The worst you can say is that the push off wasn't worthy of the flag, and that is a judgement call. We will likely argue about that for the next 50 years, but the fact remains seattle blew it.
