Pitt on the goalline vs Indy. Div Playoff round Steelers have lead the whole game. In comes Jerome "the closer" of our squad. Then... the improbable... Bettis fumbles. Ball flys up into the air and bounces right to Nick Harper. At this point, What was going through your head?

I was thinking, I am glad Harpers girlfriend stabbed with a knife earlier that week so that Big Ben could actually tackle him. I know that makes me really cold, but that is honestly what I was thinking

I felt so bad for Jerome. He was my fav Steeler and didnt want him to go out like that.

Then I was mad at my Dad (superstition) for going across state last minute to spend the weekend with his cuz and not watching the game with me like we did the other 99% of the time. :lol:

i remember watching this game and thinking that although i wasn't a steelers fan, i didn't want his career to end like this. he's a classy guy and i'm glad that wasn't his last play n the nfl.

It was probably the first time my heart actually sank into my stomach. So far, that I still cant watch that game to this day.

That was the game that ended Vanderjagt career because of his miss, he never recovered, so overall Bettis still came out on top

That the game was not already out of reach. That play should not have mattered since we dominated the game to that point but they were still in striking distance on the scoreboard.

I screamed..a really high pitch scream I was told by my family. My brothers told me I was overreacting..but hey, I'm a young fan. I've never seen my team get to the superbowl. It needed to happen! :lol:

I couldn't even watch the highlights of it on ESPN after. I had to turn it off.

I was thinking I wish a lot worse than that happen to Harpers when his girlfriend stabbed him.

I couldn't breathe. It was like the first time when I fell on my butt and had the air knocked out of me and thought this was the end of my life...

My exact words OH **** the ball is on the ground and the Steelers have their goal line package in and I really thought the Colts were going to return the fumble for the game winning TD but Ben made a nice tackle to safe the day.....I was in shock......

Hm..is it weird that I can still replay every single thing from those 15 seconds in my mind? To a tee. I can even remember what the announcers were saying. Weird.
