This was a bottle and a half of Mylanta sort of game. I have no words left in me, save for these two:
....And don"t get me started on ALLLLLLL the missed holding calls against the GB O-line in the second half. Its amazing how we sacked the QB 8 times in the first half and not at all in the 2nd. It is because of blatant holding that was not called. Again, shut up Green Bay!
@marshall21 Matt Bowen over at the National Football Post nailed it on the head in his article this morning. If the refs aren't going to make calls with any consistency, why wouldn't the players test the limits?
Bowen's piece only focused on WRs and DBs, but he could have written about any position group at all and still ended up with the same conclusion. Why did Green Bay's o-line get away with tackling Seattle's defensive linemen on several plays? For the same reason Browner got away with knocking Jennings on his back deep downfield: because they could get away with it.
@Matthew Heuett Totally! I would like to show to the entire GB locker room the play in the 4th quarter, with 11:29 left on the clock. It was 3rd and 2 and Green Bay was on our 47 yard line. It was a DEFLECTED pass, knocked down by Chancellor. They could not have kicked the extra point and they would have had to punt. Instead they got a PI against Chancellor and in the end scored a TD on that drive. I would like to play that for the GB players and then interview them after showing them that call. Will they still complain that they were robbed? I think not. After a few days of the talking heads actually watching the entire game and not just the final play, it might get brought up....... but I doubt it. How could anyone ever give any credit to the Hawks?
@Matthew Heuett In the end, we still held them to a single TD, which they did not earn fairly. With that, I am done.....
UGH!!!! I am happy we won. Lets just say that. I am SOOOO PISSED about the reaction that the Packers got robbed! Guess what bitches, you would have never scored your only touchdown if it was not for the completely bogus PI call against Chancellor on 3rd down. You would have never scored a TD, therefore even if you got a FG we would have only needed a FG to win the game! Its only because of a bogus call against us that allowed you to score, yet when the call goes the other way you got robbed of the game!!!! GOD I AM SO UPSET!!!!
