It's been over 10 years since the Arizona Cardinals fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII, but they still aren't over their 27-23 defeat. The Cardinals' Twitter account joined in on a recent social media trend by saying it's a "red flag" if anyone thinks Santonio Holmes was inbounds for his game-winning touchdown.

The Steelers' Twitter account promptly responded and roasted their Super Bowl counterparts.

Pittsburgh simply said "rent free," making fun of Arizona for being so hung up on this play more than a decade later.

Holmes' TD grab in the corner of the endzone has been recognized as one of the most impressive moments in Super Bowl history, but it's also stirred controversy from Cards supporters who believe he never got two feet down.

Regardless, it was called a catch, and it helped the Steelers capture their sixth Super Bowl win. Arizona, meanwhile, is still searching for its first post-merger championship.

Debates over this game aren't going away anytime soon, especially in the age of social media. But it's great to know Pittsburgh will always have the last laugh.
