I've seen it at least 30 times and I've never been able to clearly see that his right toe touched turf. I saw that zoom in for the opener and his right toe/foot is definitely higher than his left, and his left toe is just on the surface. I've never been convinced that he got both down, and it is not clear imo that both are down from that angle.

i always wondered why they never reviewed it. his right toe never touched... it look like it got caught on his left foot cleats.... thats all:idunno:is it sunday yet

They did review it. It was the Kurt Warner fumble at the very end that wasn't reviewed.

Regardless, it was called a catch on the field and there definitely isn't enough evidence to over rule.

There's no way they could overturn that, given the lack of indisputable evidence and the circumstances under which it happened. Maybe the gravity of the moment shouldn't matter, but I'm positive that it being a spectacular catch to put Pittsburgh up with little time left in the Super Bowl weighs a lot in a referee's willingness to call a great looking catch a catch. They want to be a part of history too.
