    Denver gets credit for forcing 2 turnovers, but you have to admit that the PI penalty leading to the TD was the WORST call, maybe in the history of playoff football.

    Dude plays great defense and is making a play on the ball and Rod Smith (?) grabs his shoulder and the ref call the defender for the penalty????

    That was unbelievably bad. Friggen horrible call.

    That was Lelie, even the pundits said that the call could have been argued either way. The refs saw it as the defender trying to cross into the receiver. Definitely not the "worst call in playoff football", not when even the pundits are saying it could have gone either way.

    Champ's run after the pick was very exciting as well.

    Watch it for yourself... they were running side-by-side and the defender was looking back for the ball. The ONLY contact between the two was Lelie reaching for the defenders shoulder pad because he had the better angle to the ball and he needed to be stopped or risk an INT.

    Worst-call-ever.

    Denver is certainly taking advantage of the turnovers though, gotta give'em credit.

    Like I said, even the experts were saying it could go either way. Definitely not the 'worst-call-ever'. I would save it for things like CU's fifth down play that netted them a touchdown that won them the game with no time left. Not for the "it could be argued either way" play that wasn't at the end of the game, didn't net them a win with no time left, and might be argued the other way...

    I would agree it was a bad call, just not the 'worst-call-ever'...

    Now if we get another one right at the end of the game and we win because of the bad call I will agree with you.

    If you believe it was "a bad call", then you too disagree with Phil Simms. If you watch the replay it couldn't go either way. It was an objectively bad call.

    My hyperbole doesn't change that fact... though I think it's fair to note that I did say "... in the history of (NFL) playoff football".
