NFL Instant Replay: On the Money in Baltimore

The NFL officials finally got one correct! Hurray!

They failed to call it right against San Diego, taking away a touchdown to give the world a freak: the first 11-10 score in NFL history.

They’ve thrown penalty flags against Steeler players only to apologize for their mistakes later in the week.

But on the third down pass into the end zone from Ben Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes they got it right. It was initially ruled down one inch away from the goal line. Reviews clearly showed that the ball broke the plane and the call was reversed.

The Ravens and their fans can whine all they want, but it doesn’t change the fact that instant replay didn’t let the Steelers drive 92 yards in the final 3 1/2 minutes of the game, that distinction belongs to the Ravens defense.

This time the officials were on the money! Good job, guys. And thanks to the NFL officials scheduler-guy for not placing Ed Hoculi in Baltimore on that day.
