Antonio Brown’s Awesome Helmet Catch

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

And this, folks, is the play that sent the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship game. Granted, Rashard Mendenhall’s touchdown provided the actual go ahead score, but that’s not happening without Brown’s stick-em-on-the-helmet-like catch. As for the purists out there, where does Brown’s catch rank in relation to David Tyree’s miraculous catch against the New England Patriots (I still enjoy watching Rodney Harrison fail there)? In order for the playing field to be completely level, you’d have to take out the fact Tyree’s obviously occurred on an even bigger stage, and at an even more crucial moment.

While advancing to the Conference Finals is nice, winning the Super Bowl clearly trumps all.

How much does this win add to the legend of Ben Roethlisberger, one of the more polarizing players in the NFL, for obvious reasons? Love him or hate, he simply makes plays, and in the NFL — well, considering the Cam Newton situation, we should change “NFL” to “football in general” — that’s clearly all that matters.

Which Catch Was Better?

After Jericho Cotchery made that amazing catch against the Patriots last night, I’ve seen this subject around the Twitter and other blogs asking which catch was better: David Tyree’s in the Super Bowl or Cotchery’s? Obviously, Tyree’s had a lot more on the line than a regular season conference match up, but that doesn’t degrade Cotchery’s catch either.

So which one was better? First, Tyree’s:

Now Cotchery’s:

It’s obvious both catches were spectacular, with luck playing a part as well. But how do you determine which is better? Do you stick to the game situation when making such a choice? If that’s the case, Tyree wins hands down, strictly because his catch was paramount for the Giants to have a chance to beat the Patriots.

But what if you are limited to judging each catch based solely on the difficulty, ignoring game situations and the like? Would Tyree still be the choice?

Weekly Pwnage: Derrick Jasper’s Blocked Shot

While the world was watching Duke/Carolina last night—teams that have seven National Championships between them (thank you, Mike Patrick)—a school that has seven championships by themselves was also playing in Auburn, Alabama. While UK may not be the center of the basketball universe this season (11-9), the sport is so much better when teams like Kentucky and UCLA are good.
