Tebow's game winning throw may have been illegal
 
Was Tim Tebow

Illegal formation .... it's playoffs, however.

Says a lot for the Steelers that they aren't crying about it.

I'm glad the Broncos won. I can't stand even looking at Pig Pen.

I like Tebow!! 8-4 as a starter, not bad, unconventional yes, bad no. As a Saints fan there was a time 8-4 as a starter would have eased a lot of pain in those years. Just saying!!

Nice find, SM.

They won, beating a good team. Fact is, it's the only good team they've beaten since Tebow took over, and Prater should get more credit than TT anyway

That would have been pretty ticky-tack to call in regular season, much less in the playoffs.

That penalty is called a fair amount; I believe it is called illegal formation

What? The throw had no green card? Darn Mexicans

The formation eventually caught the eye of current Fox analyst and former NFL Vice President of Officiating Mike Pereira. He dismissed any suggestion that the play should have been whistled dead. "Watch on any Sunday," he tweeted. "This is a good formation compared to many. They are not technical with this."

In other words, the "seven men on the line" is a rule on the books but one that doesn't require a tape measure and straight edge to determine if every player is precisely on the line of scrimmage. If seven guys are close to line and set, Pereira implies, then the formation is fine. The seven Broncos were close to the line and set, so there was nothing to call.
Pereira has spoken. Yea though verily it has been deemed, um, kosher. Let he who challenges the all mighty Pereira be pulled out of his or her one-bunk Hilton and cast down with the Sodomites...
