Should There Have Been A Holding Call On This Former NY Giant?
Super Bowl 57 was an instant classic that finished with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35. In what was a back and forth game start to finish that featured an epic Chiefs comeback win. Patrick Mahomes got his second Super Bowl and won his second MVP Award this season as well. But the game had some controversy late. Former New York Giant Cornerback James Bradberry was called for a holding penalty on Juju Smith-Schuster. To many people including myself, it did not look like a hold and there shouldn't have been a flag thrown, especially that late in the biggest game of the year. Below is my quick take on this from the Times Union:
It's unfortunate when the refs decide the outcome of games and not the players. The defensive holding flag should have not been thrown with 1:47 remaining in Sunday's Super Bowl. Officiating has been a mess all season, and Sunday was more of the same. That said, Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes was amazing in the second half, and his offensive line did not give up a sack against the best defensive line in the NFL. I should stop betting against Mahomes because he's proved me wrong against both the Bengals and the Eagles.
