God Almighty is not a fan of humorous contradiction. Or Python.

He said "done here". Then he wasn't done. Lie.
Your defense has angered the Lord. Get right with Jesus tout de suite.

The real issue here is that insomnyuk said he was leaving and then didn't leave. Liar! God hates you.

Actually they wouldn't have gone to overtime. The Seahawks were ahead by a point. What they should have done was stay with their original defense after the kickoff since it was apparent that Atlanta hadn't made any useful adjustment in the second half. That soft cover prevent defense is worthless and it, along with a horrid first half, is what cost them the game IMO.

As with anything that is a judgement I just wanted to point out that there could be an argument made for who had possession. I admit that at speed it sure looked like an interception to me. But being a homer like I am I don't think Tate deserves to be vilified for what appears to be a truly competitive football play, save for the pass interference non-call, but even then I guess that's how he gave himself good position.
Anyway, it sure seemed compelling to me.

I think I might change my opinion and call it a catch. I posted an interesting take to the huddle.

Could it have actually have been a catch?

The notion that NFL fans will watch the sport no matter what isn't flattering. Goodell must believe it to trot out these refs in the regular season.
But we have to be honest with ourselves about it. Does any of us actually believe that NFL fans will come together to not attend or watch games being played and televised in any sort of impactful numbers? Not a chance. Check the numbers from the upcoming Thursday games if replacement refs are used. If anything I bet the ratings will go up, if just to see what sort of debacle takes place.
And about this notion about this not being flattering to fans, this is the NFL. The "F" doesn't stand for "flattering".

This doesn't make any sense to me.
This statement hardly surprises me. In McCarthy's post game presser, even though he was righteously P.O.'ed, he said that his team shouldn't have let it come to that in the first place. It doesn't take a genius to understand what he was referring to: the close score.
You see, if his team had been more productive on offense and had been able to convert more of their possessions into scoring drives, worrying about what happens on a last play hail mary isn't an issue. That had nothing to do with blown calls and was actually an issue of poor execution; something the Packers have had trouble with in the first three games thus far.
As for the topic of going on some sort of strike against the NFL by not watching games, yeah right. Good luck with that.

As a Seahawk fan I had to come back here just this once to see if any Steelers fans or Jets fans were around so that I could say....ahem......
Yes, the Pack got jobbed. But they shouldn't have let the game be in a place where it would come down to the last play and be decided by an official. There were some bad calls that kept Green Bay scoring drives alive (as well as some moronic play on the part of the 'Hawks). As a totally biased observer I could also note that the Seahawks pass rushers were completely molested during the second half and nary a yellow flag flew. To go from 8 sacks in the first half to zilch in the second cannot be attributed to fantastic halftime adjustments by Sherman alone.
So in honor of the rest of the league I award a signed Vinny Testaverde helmet to the Replacement Officials. Game used. With authentic goal-line smudges. Delivered by Dennis Erickson in person.

Kramer is fun to watch play hockey. Old fashioned tough guy. Well, as tough as one can get in their league nowdays. He appears (?) on a pretty darned good local radio show, Patchin, Osso, and Lukens, weekly and is a natural with his personality.
The peanut butter jar is not a bad idea, actually.
