  • the refs had nothing to do with it. The reason we are talking about it is the same reason the Bears took us to OT last weekend. The DB messed up. Jennings blew it, just like Sherman did with the Bears. Time is running out, the ball is up for grabs, you frikin KNOCK IT DOWN! Jennings could have swatted that ball into the 4th row and this would have never have been talked about.

    At the moment, the NFL's "Fail Mary" is directly impacting the playoff position of three teams in the NFC. There are four long weeks remaining before the postseason is set, but it's reasonable to believe that Tate's disputed touchdown reception -- a play that gave the Seattle Seahawks a 14-12 victory over the Green Bay Packers as time expired -- will weave its way into the 2012 playoff tapestry.


    "disputed"...

    lots of disputed calls in the NFL this season. Regardless, Tate's catch will be a major talking point as the next 4 weeks of "what if" scenarios take place, and teams start to fall out of playoff position will look to it as an excuse.

    I dont mind ESPN bringing it up (and atleast they called it "disputed") as it is still a big part of the season.

  • An institution such as ESPN loses all credibility (if they had any to start with) when it starts posting obviously biased reports blathering such as this. It is a sport (or at least it’s supposed to be) and sportsmanship is (or at least it’s supposed to be) part of the game. Bad calls are made every day in the league, some with major ramifications, some not so major. In his article he claims that the packers are “over it”. They themselves may in fact be, but quite obviously the Packer Fan-base and the ethically questionable sportscasters such as this are obviously not! Not by a longshot!

  • If people give you crap about it, just remind them of the 2010 season in which the Packers won the SB. They only made the playoffs as the #6 seed because of officiating error (which the League stated) in a game against Minnesota. No one whines about it (except Vikings fans) because it benefited the Packers. But when the shoe is on the other foot, the whole country is in uproar.

    My thought exactly. I would love to see both Seattle and GB at 11-5, but Seattle gets the first week off and home field advantage the next.

    That post is where I learned about this issue, which made the whole thing even more outrageous. I linked it to Sando and asked him if he'd consider doing an "alternative reality" blog where GB doesn't get into the playoffs and a legitimate champion crowned. I also think that Seifert is bitter that Seattle totally exposed his NFC North boys on their home turf, with the two winning drives being shown over and over and over on national tv.

    I have tried twice to post this info on PFT when they mention the "Fail Mary" and my post about the 2010 Packers has been deleted both times. Must be Packers fans running that site.

    Both sound fun. Depends on what you want. Want people to shut up about golden gate? Gotta win. Want the maximum amount of tears from the packers and to strengthen their hatred for us? They miss by one game.

    Worst case scenario we play them in the playoffs and lose. Then we continue to hear we didn't deserve the win.

    Was that the time he ran to the star after scoring like the 'boys did and got blasted physically by some Dallas defensive player for daring to do it?

    I've had mine deleted on the topic before too. It's a joke. Pretty sad actually. Completely civil well thought out post gets deleted in place of the drivel that's mostly posted there.
