Let me start with this. A bad call cost the Pack 1/16 of their season. There is no denying the final play of the game. And while one can passionately argue, as I do, that things ought not to have come to that, there is no denying that. It happened. It came to that. M.D. Jennings made the play. The call was wrong. The Packers were robbed.
All right, we’re all in agreement here. But now I’m about to get religious on ya. Stand by.
How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
Today is a crossroads for the Green Bay Packers. They can continue to play the victims, or they can look in their mirrors.
T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton, instead of F-bombing the league via Twitter, block somebody…block anybody! Keep #12 upright so that he might be able to make a play. Open a hole through which Cedric Benson can ice a 12-7 victory.
Aaron, instead of pushing cameramen and getting in the face of a ref, don’t underthrow Greg Jennings. Don’t overthrow Donald Driver.
And even in the midst of glaring ineptitude at times, we had the ball, with the lead, and the chance to get a first down and get on the plane. Heck, Wayne had already plunged the “dagger.” Remember the best part about signing Cedric Benson? He was the smash-mouth back that would get those tough yards in precisely that situation.
I recognize that I have singled out a few individuals in a team sport of many - a few plays in a game of many. But that’s sort of the point. Not one player on that team can say that he could not have made more plays, could not have been better, could not have won more battles down-to-down.
The refs blew the final call of the game, and that mistake was absolutely the difference in the outcome. That sucks. But there was plenty of sucking out there to go around. The Packers put themselves in the position of having a referee’s judgment call determine the outcome of the game.
