Countdown to the Super Bowl: 10 days

We’re 10 days from the Super Bowl and here is your question of the day: What is the greatest catch in Super Bowl history?

You could say John Taylor‘s catch against the Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII (check out yesterday’s countdown). That certainly is a good one. David Tyree‘s one-handed grab against the Patriots certainly has to be in the discussion — especially for those of you who have never seen Lynn Swann‘s circus grab in Super Bowl X.

Hey, there are no wrong answers.

But there is only one right answer.

I’m going with Santonio Holmes‘ catch in Super Bowl XLIII. (No. 10 in your programs, if you’re looking for the connection.) Not only the catch, but the entire drive. Holmes had four receptions for 73 yards on the final drive, the culmination a 6-yard, toe-tapping touchdown with 35 seconds left in the game to earn him the Super Bowl MVP award.

But that was only one memorable catch from one of the best Super Bowls of all time.

Had the Cardinals been able to shut down the Steelers’ final drive, we might be discussing Kurt Warner‘s 64-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald, which capped the Birds’ furious rally in the fourth quarter.

And if we count interceptions as catches, how about James Harrison making the play of the game intercepting Warner’s pass on the final play of the first half and rumbling 100 yards for a touchdown?

For the Steelers, it was an NFL-best sixth Super Bowl championship.
