  1. Check out this replay of the "horrible interception" as people are calling it. If you follow that Twitter thread, it's like the third post. The part where the ball comes closest to the ground is what the refs would've focused on. I see nothing in that replay indicating the ball was actually contacted by the ground. If it were contacted by the ground and he didn't have control, the ball would've moved in his grip slightly. There was no movement by the ball at this point in time. It isn't until after this that he re-secures the catch. There is not enough evidence to overturn the ruling on the field that the ball actually contacted the ground. It just came really really close.
  2. Who cares, it was 3rd down. Ball was getting punted and Packers still had plenty of time. This is assuming they review it and actually find enough evidence to reverse the call (which I don't think there was, when the ball "touched the ground", which was a close call, the ball didn't move).
  3. And my previous comment doesn't even take in the fact that 49ers had a chance to put the game away plenty of times throughout the 3rd and 4th quarters.
  4. Just a reminder for those blaming the refs, the 49ers were penalized twice for 10 yards and the Packers were penalized six times for 54 yards. I understand the frustration of an iffy call coming in such a crucial part of the game, but no football team commits less than three penalties in a game. It just doesn't happen, even at the highest level. Giving up 30 points and then enough chunk plays to an offense with no timeouts isn't going to get it done, and you can't really blame the refs for that when you benefited from two penalty calls and losing 10 yards on them. You have to find a way to close it out, even in Lambeau against Rodgers.
  5. I'm not playing Fantasy this year, but if I were, I know Crosby would be on my team and I'd be rocking -7 or -8 points right now and super ******** pissed.
  6. Apparently, no contact for these ******** snowflakes either. National Flag Football.
  7. He knows the rules and it was a bad call. That shouldn't have been roughing the passer. Clay made contact 1/4 a second after Cousins release the ball. This was nothing like that boneheaded play of his from last week.
