Does This Photo Mean Anything?


If you browse the internet, or have fans that love to email you photos to get your blood boiling, than you probably have seen this photo above at some point today. What it is supposed to show is that Santonio Holmes’ feet were NOT down when he caught the game-winning touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLIII Sunday night.

Now what we of course do not know is when this was taken. How do they know that the feet were not down when he caught the pass and THEN the right foot came up when he was falling? Cardinal fans love to try and make reasons for their team losing the game late, and this photo will again try to give them fuel to their fire.

    The Steelers Depot blog has a great photo that clearly shows Holmes’s two feet touched the ground. We’ll have to assume he had procured the ball at the point his feet were down.

    Does this photo mena anything? sure it does. It means that “others” are trying to take away from a marvelous throw and catch sequence that won a championship! Great point about when was the photo taken? When this was looked at during replay, all angles were shown and the authorities,given the information at the time, called it correctly. Instant replay is an opportunity to get things right. It not always does and sometimes the officials are afraid to make a call because of their fear of looking foolish during replay. In this case, the official was right there on the spot, saw the completion, and immediatley signaled touchdown. Great throw,great catch,great call (on the TD) by all officials, great game and great ending. I was just wondering if its possible for the Steelers to win big games like the Super Bowl without it being tainted by jealous,bitter, knuckleheads that think the Steelers “get all the breaks”? The officials called a good game. Harrison was held a lot all year and some were called in this game. The personal fouls, the only one that may have been ticky-tac was the push down on Ben. The holding on Hartwig actually cost the Steelers 9 points and was LATE in the game, so the calls went both ways. Give it a rest people, The Steelers won, the Cardinals got beat.

    that picture is hilarious.

    it reminds me of the picture of holmes’ controversial td in the ravens game at the goal line. it showed him after he had already fallen back towards the one yard line.

    the jealous nut jobs and their tricks are so dishonest

    Go Steelers

    Every body remembers that modern life is not cheap, nevertheless some people require money for various stuff and not every one gets enough cash. Hence to receive some loan or just commercial loan should be a proper way out.
