    That was one of the worst none calls I have ever seen. The Cardinal defender basically tackled Curtis. No incidental contact there. I just don't understand how the officials let that go????

    I was routing for the Cardinals as well but what is right is right, c'mon!

    For those that disagree. Please try to imagine if that happened to us.

    I don't have to say what would have happened. The ClanRam site would be lit up like a Christmas tree by now!

    Agreed. I know officials across the board in sports don't want key games to be decided by the refs, so perhaps this creates a predisposition to not call as many fouls or penalties in the closing minutes. But in this case, NOT calling the penalty essentially created the exact same situation of the refs deciding the outcome.

    If the flag would have been thrown, the Eagles still would have had to score a touchdown just to send the game into overtime. Not only could the Cardinals have stopped them on their own merits, but they still could have won in overtime.

    Meanwhile, not throwing the flag ends the Eagles' chances of a comeback. Literally, it's over. Arizona gets the ball and they run it down to under ten seconds.

    Re: Warner leads Cards to cinderella season

    If the Steelers get pressure on Warner, it's going to be a blowout Super Bowl. If the O line protects Warner, it will be an exciting Super Bowl. It's the Cardinals O line against the Steelers pressure that will dictate how the Super Bowl goes. Does anyone else remember the Ty Law pass?

    I guess it's a matter of perception. From watching the replay numerous times, it looked to me like the ball hit his hip. I'd love to see the replay again.

    Wasn't that the one where Warner was blatantly clubbed in the head as he threw, while the ref swallowed his whistle??

    Maybe if I look at it like you do Tx it won't bother me as much.

    Curtis looked awesome as well, killer speed and he caught everything that got near him. I have to agree that the last play was blatant pass interference against Curtis or it would probably have been a first down, terrible call.

    Good luck to the Cards, it sure is nostalgic seeing Warner playing like that again. Very exciting game and I hope he goes all the way and gets that 2nd ring.

    Agreed completely. The Eagles demonstrated that an effective pass rush can derail this Cardinals offense, and the Steelers have one of the best pass rushers in the league. Second in the league in sacks, with two players in double digits. Second in the league in opposing passer rating. The Cardinals are hot right now, but two weeks off might hurt the momentum.

    Disagree we will.

    But it took points off the board for the Cards. With those extra points, it make a PI or completed pass meaningless. Not enough time to score twice. The Eagles would still have been 3 or 7 points short.

    With as many times as I have seen a play just like that called incidental contact, I also disagree that it would be called PI in normal circomstances.
