There was unquestioned pass interfence that wasn't called, but not during that play.

Well, if the CBA doesn't work out, maybe our guys could fill their time by attending a Strasberg theatre workshop or something.

I don't want "phantom" flags, but when their IS pass interference (and there's been plenty of non-calls this year), YES...... i want a flag. And some teams receivers in this league are very good at "getting the call"

There was no interference on that play. I thought it was a perfectly called play. GB is covering the sidelines and cthe deep route. Wallace goes up and cuts in, at the moment he cut, the ball should have been there and on the numbers...first down. Instead, Ben was looking that way the whole time and threw it a moment late and a bit high...game over. Good play call, poor execution.

It was a good call, but in the end, really, it could have gone either way.

If thats a GB receiver, a NE receiver, Terrell Owens, or C.O, they immediately jump up like someone lit a firecracker under their ass, jump up and down in the air 6 feet high, and furiously point at the receiver. Then what happens? More oft than not, ref throws the flag.
Our receivers kind of just stand up, and jog back to the line of scrimmage. I think our receiving corp needs some acting lessons that the other receivers in the league have already figured out works.
Certain teams like NE are very good at this and i think some coaches out there know this works as well.
you are sounding exactly like the Seahawk fans you still rip on today for making excuses for there loss. that was a good play and a good call on the refs. there was no pass interference and we lost because we couldnt stop Rodgers or consistintly throw the ball well.

you swear that one day, Mel Kiper will evaluate a WR by saying "... at 6' 4", he can run, jump, block, and catch the ball... but what makes him unique in this graduating class is the wrist-flip he does while the ball is still in the AIR, alerting the Officials that he is about to be interefered with..."

ONCE again...for the 3rd time....i'll say it again. I don't want "phantom calls" and am not really even referencing that play.
I'm talking on legitimate calls that could go OUR way.
