Steelers Complain About Blown Holding Call

While it doesn't sound like excessive complaining, the Steelers Inside Linebacker Larry Foote is saying that he thinks he was held during the play in which Jacksonville QB David Garrard's 32 yard gallop on 4th and 2. Via (via PFT's One-Liner's) Foote said:
Watch the middle of the defensive line, and you'll see

Ironically, it was free safety Tyrone Carter who seemed to see the play the best.
The guy basically just grabbed him and threw him, but the ref is human," Carter said. "All we can do is look at the tape. I'm pretty sure the coaches will turn it in (to the NFL), but there ain't nothing we can do about it. They didn't call it, so we lost.

Funny thing is that Carter was the one who let Garrard run right around him. Garrard doesn't appear to be that fast, how did he make Carter look like he was standing still? Maybe Carter should have been watching Garrard instead of watching his teammate get pulled to the ground.

While I was watching the game, I don't remember thinking there was a blown call during that play. Do you think there was a holding call? Discuss...

I saw it, and I thought it was a blown call at the time. Holding happens all the time, but in this case it was right next to the play and in the wide open.

I'm a Stillers fan, so of course it was pretty obvious to me.

I saw a lot of missed holding calls during the game I was yelling at the TV and my buddies think I'm crazy now because I accused the officials of being on the take. This play especially,they didn't call holding it was obvious the umpire was right there. How else is the QB going to break for 32 yards against the #1 defense without holding. The still pics are on the net. See it for yourself.

I appreciate your comments guys. Call me crazy, but normally I'm all over the missed calls, and yes - there are plenty of them every game. But that play - I must have missed it. Of course, the fact that my friends were playing guitar hero on the projector and I was left to watch the game on the 27" didn't help either.

And by the way - the last 25 yards of the 32 yard run had nothing to do with holding. It was poor tackling by the secondary.

Check the picture in this week's Sports Illustrated magazine, the hold is there. I don't see how it was missed!
