Yes, the pictures are big.

Where the first down was at. Note that it's just after the 34 yard line by a hair:



Rice's knee is down short of the 35. The ball is behind Cason's knee. Rice got to the 35. He needed to get to the 34. He's a full yard short:




Boldin's blatantly illegal block in the back with his head lowered:

True, but he was clearly a half yard short. How the refs missed that I don't know.

i'm more aggravated about the illegal block in the back with his head lowered.

Now, Rice is on my fantasy team, so I'll take all the points I can get. It's just a bit aggravating that if a play like this happened, and that was the Steelers getting the first down, things would've been different.

Yeh it was easy to see it was short, and the block was hard to miss?

Must have been Big Ten refs..

what I don't get is that it's being celebrated league-wide despite so many blatantly obvious issues

Rice was clearly done about a yard and some change short. Made me laugh when I saw it after how insane they went about not getting calls in some games (like the Patriots game).

You can nit pick all you want you allow a team to convert a thirty yard play or even get close. Blame the Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator/Players is some assemblence of that order.

no arguments.

there's no nitpicking though

there are 2 reasons why that play should've been called back. That so many in the NFL media are trumpeting it as a play of the year candidate is just beyond ridiculous, similar to if the Seattle TD vs. Green Bay was in contention for play of the year
