Anyway, I agree that plays that are labled "great" can be, and often are, lucky. Certainly the helmet catch falls into that category.
As for a great play mostly resulting from what the QB did, I was probably more impressed by Eli's deep, left sideline throw late in the SB last year.
Romo has spun away from being in the grasp but nothing like what Eli got out of. He was being pulled down and tackled from behind hardly ever do you see a QB come out of something as dire as that. I've seen Roethlisberger and Mcnabb during his prime pull off escapes similar but It was not an escape you would think Eli could pull off. That was as close to a sack as you can get. That play had to have been payback from the football Gods for the tuck rule game.
