    Default Lack of TV replay blocked Steelers challenge

    Lack of TV replay blocked Steelers challenge
    By ALAN ROBINSON, AP Sports Writer

    PITTSBURGH (AP)óThe Steelers apparently didnít challenge a possible touchdown run by Rashard Mendenhall against the Saints because their assistant coaches stationed in the press box couldnít see the same replays that were viewed by the millions of fans watching on TV on Sunday.

    On a second down play from the 2 early in the second quarter, the officials ruled Mendenhall didnít get the ball across the goal line before being brought down. NBC replays appeared to show the ball touching the goal line before Mendenhall was tackled, but coach Mike Tomlin didnít challenge the call.

    Mendenhall was tackled for no gain on third down, and the Steelers settled for Jeff Reedís 19-yard field goal and a 3-0 lead, rather than the 7-0 lead if Mendenhall had scored. The Saints won 20-10.

    Maybe there's some truth to this. I mean, if they'd see the same replays we see then they'd never have made that first horrible challenge...

    I thought they should have challenged the spot on the ARE catch.

    Also, why not send your 6'5" 240 pound QB airborne with the ball stuck out front when you only need to penetrate the "plane?"

    This is the kind of stuff the NFL should be working on and not all the crap that keeps the players from playing the game. The NFL should make sure each team gets to see all angles of instant replay prior to throwing the red flag.

    It would explain a few things I thought were iffy. I wonder why the replays weren't available in the press box? Seems odd that that wouldn't be available, but there you go.

    On the radio they were saying that the Saints or their brodcasting wasn't allowing the viewers or the Steelers to see all the replays. I don't know if that is possible but, they were talking about that on the Fan Radio yesterday. If that is true, the NFL should concern their efforts with that kind of stuff.

    That really sounds a bit dubious. It might be investigation time.

    They'll probably just let it go and say this makes up for what happened in the Dolphins game. Goodell would rather spend more time changing rules anyway.

    And we all know how Roger Dodger does in investigations.
