I agree on the first challenge.. that was a poor choice to challenge on based on the play alone.

The second, I think that was a momentum changer type call.. and based on the replays should have been a correct decision. Trying to get the defense off the field. I would have thrown that flag all day long, especially in light of our first challenge.

How they can't get the calls right in the replay booth boggles the mind.

On the Sproles play.. how can the guy behind the play be the one making the decisive call on that play? The actions was blocked from his view.

Whether the Packers manufactured some of the issues themselves without challenges left.. the players on the field still have to deal with the emotions of the ebb and flow of the game.

My opinion is the Packers have experienced two very swinging games that much of the swing was not at the hands of the players themselves.


I hear what you are saying. Don't completely disagree but after squandering the first challenge call it may have been more judicious sit on the second one.

It was the first possession of the 2nd half. Only 16 seconds into the 3rd quarter. There was a whole lot of football to be played. Even if they won the challenge, gotten the punt with excellent field position and then scored there would still be 3/4 of the half left. It is nice to have a two TD cushion but there would have been a lot of game left and plenty of time for Brees to mount a comeback.

It would have made more sense to use it to change the momentum later in the game. Of course IF Mike had one the first challenge and a win on his second challenge was going to allow him a third one I would have gone for it too. There is no way Mike could have expected the ref not to agree with his challenge. But the way it was yesterday win or lose he was out of challenges since he lost the first one.

Nah, I don't understand that one. they are told not to blow the whistle and let fumbles play out so they can make a call. Because then in can be reversed. Once they blow the whistle it is pretty much shot. How many challenges were left didn't matter because it is a call that couldn't be overturned anyway.


yeah I heard last night it was not reviewable because of the dead whistler call. My comment is based from the perspective there could have been a challenge.

Something else to consider. Refs are more than human. Do you suppose the side judge knowing GB had no challenges might have been a little quicker with his whistle knowing it didn't matter what he did as GB could not over turn it?

the second on the phantom catch by Graham. That too wasn't a critical play. While it would have brought up 4th down NO was only at the 31. There was a lot of field for them to cover.




Whooooaaaaa Nelly, That play allowed new orleans to much down the field and score, instead of punting the ball. Mike would have had to have been absolutely crazy to not challenge that play. What coach would ever not challenge an obvious incomplete pass that would force a team to punt?

I'll agree with you on the jordy challenge, the odds of winning that one were very slim.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

my comments are predicated off the Jordy call.

And for the record, the first down play did not allow them to march down field and score a FG. There were another 11 plays on the drive. The defense had plenty of chances to shut them down. Including 3rd and 5 (was 3rd and 10), 3rd and 6, 3rd and 10, 4th and 2.

The way things were going the second half I didn't have a very positive attitude - I thought we were going to have Official Sex again. I'm just happy for the win.

This in my subjective view is one of the things that I hate about the Triplett crew. Admittedly,my memory may be selective because of my "hate", but my belief is that they regularly are "early whistle" guys AND at the same time are "guys that take forever to unpile the bodies of fumble scrums.

Like I said, I may be misremembering the actual frequency. But I do know that this is not the first time this crew has screwed the Packers, or the second, by blowing a whistle too soo and/or failing to identify the recovering party quick enough.

I'll go ahead and say it -- were it not for their fuckups on the Saints last two possessions, I would rather have the replacements we had against the seahawks than the triplett crew.

Please disregard my comments on this post as I was completely wrong. The game against the Saints was clearly a fluke. Today's game against the Colts, who are rebuilding with a new QB, was a complete pathetic collapse.

This team seeks out adversity like most teams seek out wins.

The better team on this day won. This could be extraordinarly expensive for the rest of our season. I do not have a good feelng about the whole rest. Our team has failed the expectations, and will not recover, as they never do at this point in thed season.

... So start thinking who has to go, instead of who posted dick-head posts... trust me .
