I thought the call was on the spot. In all honestly that wasn't a fumble and if it isn't a fumble it's an incomplete pass!
I tend to agree with you.

I think that in this situation, you have to look at Polamalu's entire string of actions. He caught the ball, fell, and rolled. The ball came out during the roll; the knee was down.

I agree that it was sketchy, but also think that, cosidering the rule, was called correctly during the review.

The Indianapolis Chokes! No matter how they light it up during the regular season, and P. Manning is one of my favorite QBs to watch, one can't ignore the fact that they have choked in the playoffs for the last 4 years now. Pity!

Props to Cowher and his crew....this team is always in contention and they schemed the Colts right out of the playoffs. Steelers=DEFENSE and we all know that DEFENSE wins championships.

Don't know if you noticed how the refs in the other game were just trying to hand it to Chicago. They called a TD for T. Jones when he clearly let the ball out of his hand well before he crossed the goal-line. Didn't call a clear delay of game on Chicago's offense - funny how Grossman threw a pick on that very play to end Chicago's hopes.

It was the correct call. The rule says that the player has to maintain control of the ball while on the ground, his knee was still on the ground when the ball popped out so technically he was still on the ground. A stupid rule (like the tuck rule) but thats the way its worded.

I think Indy thought they had become a physical football team but the Steelers showed them what physical football is. I think the Steelers are a real threat to go all the way.

Actually the call was a mistake and the NFL admitted it today:

NFL: Polamalu call was a mistake
