It isn't just the play Tyree made, it was the situation the play happened in and Manning's will to break away from the defender grabbing onto his jersey to making a throw where Tyree made an amazing catch. No clue how Tyree even caught that, 99 times out of 100 that ball is dropped.

Holmes catch was nice and very important with the situation but that kind of catch/play happens all the time, probably at least 10 times a season (not the same situation though).

The situation? How about a super bowl winning catch? It was a perfect throw and an amazing catch. That play does not happen ten times a season.
