If not for a few missed calls by the refs and some bone head mistakes by the Cardinals, they would have, they should have won this game. The Steelers were very fortunate to have won, and even though, they should feel like pretenders instead of Champions. Definitely a tainted win.

Im glad i wasnt the only one who saw it this way. The line on the game was 7 points...which is why the refs called those two penalties...roughing the passer, and roughing the placeholder to give the steelers a chance to run the score. they screwed up both opportunities and cost a lot of people a lot of money.

Also, the last play of the game for the cardinals...they didnt even review it in the booth, the refs hurried the steelers on to the field to end the game. you would figure in such a tight game, and also being the superbowl...they would have taken a look at the video...which warner was coming forward with his arm. This game was only about giving the Steelers the most super bowl wins in NFL history...not about the Cardinals doing the impossible and beating the Steelers. SHAME ON THE NFL AGAIN

You need a blowout win to be a champion or you're a pretender? I think the past 2 super bowls have been great games - yet you cite missed calls by the ref's - which apparently only you saw cuz Madden would have gone on & on about it last night if there was any if it were truth to the matter. Cards got hot for the playoffs - just like the Giant's last season and played a great game but the lost - doesn't make the Steelers pretenders no matter how you want to spin it.

The final Cardinal play was reviewed in the booth and deemed a fumble as called on the field. If you listened to the radio broadcast, you clearly hear them stating that it is the booth.

Also, roughing the holder is a legitimate call. If Adrian Wilson would have hit the holder (Berger) and held up from falling over, the official most likely wouldn't have called it. But Wilson ran right through him, so it was called. But, Arizona still held them to a field goal, which is what they had as the penalty occurred. So, that didn't impact the games' ending!

With 2:37 left on the clock, Roethlisberger and the Steelers marched down the field and grasped the victory. Cardinals could have stopped them.

Hats off to the Cardinals, a great gamey team that could have won. They were real close. But, Pittsburgh won...and this is the way it goes.

GO STEELERS!!!

Interesting..so they reviewed the play in about 7 seconds?

Yeah sure, the league is saying that so they don't have egg on their faces...

I didn't care who won the game... but it wasn't cool to not at least give the Cards a fair shot

Anyone else noticed how much diving and acting Berger has been doing all playoffs??

Kinda like Sidney Crosby... maybe there's something in the water in Pitt

Overall a great game and although I'm not a fan of either team I hated to see the refs make some wuss calls and miss some calls as well. The personal foul call for pushing Big Ben was weak as well as the one on Ike Taylor. The big miss was a blatant block in the back on the interception return that was right in front of the refs - 1 hand clearly behind the shoulder and the other on the back - a penalty called on just about every punt return but missed on one of the biggest plays in the biggest game of the year. I hate seeing an error like that change the whole outcome regardless of who is playing.

I am so with you - Crosby is such a great player but I think of him as the Vlade Divac of hockey. Touch him and he'll tumble.

Coulda shoulda woulda, what a bunch of sore losers. Cardinal fans should at least be happy they weren't crowned the worst team ever to win the Super Bowl.

All season long I had to hear the NFL whine and moan about end zone celebrations. We had to hear how tough they were going to crack down on it, and especially if the ball is used as a prop.

Final touchdown of the game, with a billion eyes watching and a million camera angles focused on him, Holmes celebrates his TD by using the ball as a, um ketchup bottle maybe? Anyway, instead of penalizing him, they crowned him as MVP.

Good luck controlling it next season.

I didn't say the league, I said the RADIO BROADCAST mentioned it was under review. It was quickly signaled down as a fumble.

A 200 and some pound CB barrells into him as he is kneeling and you call that 'acting.'

Sorry, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal, and Marc-Andre Fluery are awesome too. Great time to be a Pittsburgher!

It can't be used a prop in a group celebration. That is the rule.

You don't really understand the rule. A player can do almost anything to celebrate a TD--it's only when OTHER players start jumping in that they call the penalty. And BTW, it was a salt-shaker. He shook salt into his hand and tossed it over his left shoulder.

You're a bitter fool. You lost the championship, but take heart: you still have a good chance of winning the title as the league's WHINIEST fans. Already you're giving he Ravens fans a serious run for their money, and if you can keep it up for another day or two, you're golden.

Too bad your Steeler-hatred has blinded you so completely. Only a drooling homer/hater could possibly consider that roughing the holder penalty to be an NFL fabrication. And as in ANY GAME, there were bad calls going both ways. they finally called the occasional hold against Harrison, but there were still three egregious examples that went uncalled. Plus, they blew the replay call on Ben's TD. They kept stopping the tape where Ben's knee was supposedly down, but in fact it was still hovering an inch above the grass at that point. You could clearly see the impact when it did actually hit: a half a second later and when the nose of the ball was clearly over the line. Obviously, the NFL brass were trying to hand to game to the Cinderella team, but the Steelers had other plans.
