    Longest touchdown

    That touchdown reception by the Steelers T.E was the longest one I ever remember seeing by someone in that position.

    Was that a record or close to one?

    Another 5 yards and he would have just stopped running lol.


    BTW

    Wasn't that a wimpy throw of the red hanky that Sabin had when he was going to contest the call? It looke on replay like he didn't want to throw it and then just pitched it softly to a place it wouldn't be noticed and then he has the guts to complain that the refs didn't see it. The darn thing is weighted, throw it IN FRONT of the ref, not behind him away from the play.

    Re: Longest touchdown

    Yeah, that has to be one of the longest, if not the longest TD reception by a tight end in NFL history.

    Unfourtnatley, the longest offensive TD in NFL history was Tony Dorsett's 99 yard run against us.

    And yes, that was a very wimpy throw when Saban tossed the red flag onto the field.
    ;D

    And the nerve to bitch about it, after the game was over, is amazing.
    I could tell as the play was happening that Miller was likely out-of-bounds.
    If anyone, besides himself, is to blame, it's his assistant coaches up in the booth.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
