Some people on this thread have expressed the opinion that the only significant causal factor was the failure of the crew to reduce thrust on landing.

To show how limited such a view is, I quote from the recently-issued U.S. NTSB Summary of their report on the December 2005 overrun at Chicago Midway:

The same obviously holds true of 35L at CGH.
