That Steelers Loss

Yeah, yeah, I blew it with my prediction of a Steelers win over New England last week.  We spent last Sunday in Epcot at Disney World, all of us wearing our Steelers stuff and exchanging good wishes with other similarly garbed Steelers fans and good natured jibes with those wearing Patriots gear.  It was fun.  We then got back to our condo, I pulled on my lucky Steelers Socks, and then, well, you all know how it turned out.  Little did we realize that when Sammy Coates dropped that pass on the Steelers third offensive play of the game that we were witnessing a microcosm of what was to follow.

Oh, well, it was still a great season, and we'll get 'em next year and all that stuff.  I'm not going to dwell on the game, but I do want to give special recognition for the rare "Triple" that was achieved by Steelers wide receiver Cody Hamilton.

In that game, Hamilton did the following:

  • Dropped a pass in the end zone when a TD could still have been a factor in the game.
  • Had a TD pass reception nullified when he ran out of bounds in the end zone at a time when the TD could still have been a factor in the game.
  • Held on to a TD pass at a time when such a TD was no longer a factor in the game.
It will be awhile before you see a WR have a game like that folks, especially in a Conference Championship game.
