James Harrison Touchdown Interception Return (Video)

James Harrision Super Bowl Touchdown Play!

Here is the video of Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison returning an interception 100 yards for a Super Bowl touchdown. The NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year intercepted a Kurt Warner pass on the last play of the half against the Arizona Cardinals. It is the longest scoring play in Super Bowl history.

The play was reviewed by the officials on two counts. First, did he step out of bounds around the 8 yard line? No. Secondly, was the ball down just before crossing the goal line? Apparently not although the replays were not clear. The ball may landed on Larry Fitzgerald’s leg before crossing the goal line, although the nose of the ball may have also hit the ground. Let’s hope the winning margin is not dependent upon James Harrison’s touchdown return.

What is clear is that he should have been tacked much earlier and a better effort by the Cardinals would have brought down James Harrison. Larry Fitzgerald himself seemed to get in the way of his own teammate who seemed to have a better angle on Harrison.

    Maybe the referees should have called another call before it even got to the endzone. Look at 19 seconds into the video! Looks like a block in the back by Steeler number 56! If that doesn’t happen zeros seconds and halftime. 7 less Steeler points!

    Come on Andy – calls went both ways, some were made, some weren’t. The better team won, and that’s final.

    In case you missed it, the trophy is headed back to da ‘burgh where it belongs.

    Sore friggin’ losers – always blame the officials.
