Golden Tate's Game Winning Touchdown

43 posts in this topic

Simultaneously when both players are on the ground it's not a catch in the AIR! Touchdown Seattle the Refs got it right by the rules like it or not!

The NFL conceded Tuesday that a bad call cost the Green Bay Packers the game while upholding the Seattle Seahawks' victory.

NFL disagrees with you.

Refereeing aside, an example of why they coach you to knock it down instead of trying for the interception.

oh you mean like this?

Tate really should had been penalized for pushing Jennings down. As Jennings got that huge INT. As NFL really stands by refs, not by the truth!

fug green bay...it wasn't pretty...but you know what...Hawks have had plenty of pretty losses, I'll take an ugly win anyday!

I know 100% for sure it was a huge offensive pass interference and it wasn't called. I've seen enough angles and pictures to think there was enough there for simultaneous catch....but mostly...100% mostly...

the refs sucked ass all game long...on both sides...Green Bay scored their single touchdown after a horseshit pass interference call turned what should have been 4th and long to a first down. There were many many examples...start to finish that screwed both teams.

we all knew it was going to happen...and it's better that it happened on a Monday Night game with everyone watching instead of a Sunday morning game between two poo teams like Kansas and St Louis...because nobody would have given two shits. Has to be a huge eye opener to the league to get these idiots off the field and bring back the real officials.

I know if were the panthers, at home, and it was steve smith, there wouldn't be a single panther fan say it was an INT.

Saddest thing is, that wasn't even close to being the worse call of that game.

two valid points....I know I'm not the only one that can say that my team has lost due to some pretty shitty calls...so it's kind of nice to get in on the winning side for once!

As former NFL ref Jim Tunney called it last night, the first rule of simultaneous possession is both players must have both hands on the ball. That did not occur until Jennings had secured the ball to his body and was down, therefore, no simultaneous possession.

The fact this was such a blatantly blown call is only the icing on the cake for a final 3 minutes that was riddled with blown/bad/missed calls. Before the interception was even made, watch Tate shove Shields to the ground from behind when the ball is in the air- offensive pass interference. Interception in the end zone with no time left- game over.

This comes after an obvious offensive pass interference earlier in the quarter when Tate had both his hands wrapped around Shields, who had inside position and knocked the ball down on a 3rd and 17 play. Refs called defensive PI and gave Seattle a first down. 4th down, punt to Green Bay, game over.

Then the phantom roughing the passer call when Green Bay made the sideline interception after Wilson was flushed from the pocket being chased by a DB. Wilson was running at an angle toward to sideline and line of scrimmage and the DB dove to tackle him around the calves. Only when a QB is standing in the pocket and a defensive player goes low is it considered roughing (the Tom Brady rule). In this case, the QB was a running back and there should have been a no call. Interception Green Bay- game over.

This call was only blown because it happened to Greenbay. Bet you dollars to donut, if it was the other wat around no one would be making this much fuss.

It does say a lot about social media.

Frist off...Jennings should have batted the ball away instead of trying to catch it because he was the tallest. Why was he trying to catching a ball when his team was strongly in the lead anyway and when there were clearly two Seahawks players under him who could have easily grabbed the ball. All he did was bring down the ball. He didn't secure the ball. Which meant it was a ball up for grabs.

And since when is an INT an INT when the ball is just touched by the other team? I was under the impression that if the ball wasn't batted away, the offensive team has a right to fight for the ball since the hail mary was thrown to benefit them.

The Refs didn't get it wrong...All those who get their marching orders from the media need to realize how much they are being played.

This is nothing more than what our media seem to enjoy doing..Piling on on those they preceive are weak.

This call was blown because of unbelievably lousy officiating on prime time Monday Night Football. The refs have no clue who was playing; that was proven when they couldn't call penalties on the right team.

You really sound as though you just started watching the game last week, it's pretty embarrassing.

No... the you are being duped.. becau the regular officials would have made the same call. And, you know it. We're only piling on these Refs because some are trying to get over on them...Get the psychology.

The packers lost when Jennings didn't bat the ball away. Plain and simple
