Was that Hail Mary play they reviewed the right call?
OK so how about if the officials had made the right calls on the Packers go ahead drive in the 4th?
If the Seahawks don't hold the Packers to 12 points off 4 FGs in that game, then the last play doesn't matter. They put themselves in a situation to win and then they won. Pretty simple Olaf.If the refs make the right call GB wins. Simple as that. I don't care what Seattle's defense held them to. GB got jobbed by the refs and if it was GB in our position right now fighting to get in the playoffs the outcry would still be outrageous.
That phantom PI call that extended the drive and allowed them to go get a TD rather than having to punt, were they "jobbed" on that call too?
Why focus on the one single play that maybe cost the Pack a win when there were equally questionable calls that were to their advantage on their own scoring drive within the same quarter.
Green Bay doesn't get gifted a fresh set of downs and they are behind on the scoreboard meaning the play everybody cried about doesn't even matter in terms of who won.
As I said in a previous post, the officials giveth and they taketh away.
All the officials did was prove that sometimes 2 wrongs do make a right.
To me it's debatable, in real time (which is what they use) it's easy to see how they made the call they did and as JDouble explained a few posts back it can be seen as being the correct call.
Personally I don't know, either way it gets called there are questions.
Gun to my head and I likely say Pack should have gotten the ball but the fact remains that play didn't really cost them the game.
If they are correcting all the errors it evens out, so why is such a huge deal made out of one call and not the other.
If it wasn't one of the leagues golden teams actually having a call go against them this would have been glossed over and we'd still have replacements out there.
