@normmiller @Bama33 You can't focus on just that drive, though. The entire second half was full of calls (or no calls) that directly affected the outcome of the game. Missed holds, phantom PIs, incorrect roughing the passer calls, etc all lead to longer drives and extra points on the board. For both teams. On 3rd and 2 on the Hawks 47 the Seattle defender was called for OPI. That should have turned the ball back over to Seattle via punt (I doubt that they would have tried for the 64 yard FG, or for the 4th and 2 with 11 min left in the game). While the Hawks weren't producing on O yet, there isn't anything saying that drive wouldn't have been different. I don't feel like either team would have won this game fairly considering the poorly officiated second half.

@Bama33 Can we just count this as extended preseason and start the official records when the real refs come back?
@Bama33 How could the Packers have considered themselves to won? I disagree with the final call, just like any other reasonable sports fan, but to say that GB deserved the win is just delusional. The PI call that kept their TD drive alive would have been just as controversial as the final call had it happened later in the game. It's bull to say that this was the ONLY call that influenced the game. But I'm with you, no more NFL for me until they get this under control
@towman100 What? Any team would take the win given to them. How did the Hawks cheat when the officials are the ones that blew the call? Also, did you call the Packers cheaters when they were gifted a PI call that lead to their TD (instead if it being 4th and 2 and a punt on the way)? Both teams, and all NFL fans, were "robbed" by officiating.
