That "1st down call" at the end of the game was just another example of how incompetent these baffoons are.

The missed blatant helmet to helmet call earlier in the game is understandable i guess because its probably tough to catch stuff like that in real time, but the botched call at the end of the game is inexcusable.
I didn’t see it as obviously not a 1st down, unlike you and the most of the rest of the world.

his arm was clearly down before the yellow tv line.

but i retract my statement, because there's footage of the tv line being off mark.
And if you blast the refs for the first down call, you have to blast them for the terrible fumble call in the first quarter. "It was indeed a fumble, but there was no clear evidence of recovery, so the Seahawks maintain possession and the Packers are charged their first time out." WTF [expletive] call.

Also, I love Lambeau. The wife and I made the trip for Sunday night's game and it did not disappoint. This was our second playoff game at Lambeau (the first was the first round game against the Giants in 2017). The snow really started coming down right as the game ended, which was kinda disappointing as I would have loved for it to have been coming down hard during the entire game.
Oh yea...had forgotten about that. reffing in general seemingly gets worse every year.

just eliminate instant replay so that the "in real time" excuse can be valid.

Well the refs took a lot of justified flack early in the season for blowing the whistle and ending turnover plays without letting them play out. They said they were going to let plays finish and then the booth could overrule their calls as necessary after the turnover. That didn't happen Sunday night.

Yesterday the Chiefs traded for Frank Clark, one of the best DE in the league.

So was I, but it isn’t to be. I will now be rooting for the Chiefs because the guild master of my Star Wars:The Old Republic guild is from Kansas City.

I was obviously rooting for GB and the SB I rematch, but figured there was no way the Pack would stand up against SF's run. They got obliterated against them before Thanksgiving on MNF, so my expectations were reasonably tempered for this rematch. It played out about like I expected, unfortunately.

They were not a 13-3 team in the regular season. They had 3 games where they won as the clock expired, so they're more realistically a 10-6 team, which feels about right based on how they performed this year. An opportunistic defense that relies on turnovers is not viable. Hope is not a strategy (as we've learned throughout the years as Cardinal fans). They did improve their pass rush dramatically this year though, which was fun to see. I love me some Smith Brothers. But now they just need to fire Mike Pettine and bring in a young defensive guru to overhaul the rest of the secondary and the entire defensive line outside of Kenny Clark.

When was the last time the Packers have even had a Top 10 defense? Certainly not this decade. Maybe the 2010 season when they won the SB? Their defense has been at the bottom of the barrel for so long I can't even remember their last good defensive team.
