Is it me, or does Flacco have horrible pocket awareness? I've noticed this before. There could be a DE two feet in front of him, and he wouldn't see him.

Blatant Flop leads to Steeler Victory.

Imo, the infraction and holding occurred even BEFORE the flop.

Additionally, if Anquan Boldin doesn't drop a TD pass on the goal line that hit him in the numbers in the series that followed, it's a completely moot point.

Several points to make here:
First, all the replays I saw live and in this video did not show any indication of a holding infraction that warranted a penalty. I personally thought it was a very bad call for BAL as it killed a play that could have saved their season.

Second, I don't have any problem with the Steeler "flopping." He was beat and he tried to get a call. Players do that in all sports. I think only the NHL penalizes it.

Third, Boldin should have caught that ball.

Finally, scoring a TD there did not mean a Ravens win. It just meant a Ravens lead and momentum. I seem to recall the SB champion Pittsburgh Steelers overcoming late leads in important games before. They are running commercials of the Roth-to-Holmes pass against ARI throughout these playoffs in case anyone missed it.

But - as C4L said, the official should have got it right the first time.

Um...rules are pretty clear. When blocking, keep your hands within the framework of the shoulder pads. Look at the slo-mo from the ends zone at the 49-50ish second mark. The Ravens defender clearly grabs the outside of his shoulder pad. It didn't cause the Steeler to fall down, that was the tangled feet, but he did grab his shoulder pad....hence, holding.

Not quite sure why everybody jumps all over tiny little plays during a game and start yelling THE STEELERS SHOULDN'T HAVE WON!

Annoying actually. Now, lets go over all the ignored holding calls against James Harrison and we have a discussion. Otherwise, read the rule book.

Easy [mun]boy. Not everyone is saying the Steelers SHOULDN'T HAVE WON! Only one person did, C4L. As for the call, while the "Um...rules are pretty clear," everyone knows that holding could be called on every single play. I stick by my previously stated opinion that:

While his technique was against the rule book as you state, it did not impede the defender from making the tackle, IMO. The defender wasn't going to get there.

Chill out, dude. Your in the AFC Championship Game, again.

Holding is holding whether the defender would have gotten there or not. ;-D
