I know this has probably been beaten to a pulp, but I feel the officiating in the game vs GB was the most atrocious I have seen in a long time!!
Nevermind the TD catch by Driver which he NEVER had control of the ball, and even Mike Francesa and the league itself admitted that was a bad call. The Ballard call I think they got right, althought I know all this commotion has been made of it.
But the absolute MOST EGREGIOUS call to me was the 3rd down play when they sacked Rodgers andd the refs called illegal use of the hands on the defense, automatic 1st down. It was absolutely RIDICULOUS!! Then also the Prince PI penalty where he didn't even touch him, another call which was just plain wrong!!
I also think that Tripplett is the WORST official in the league, remember the Thanksgiving coin toss?
I don't know if we still would have won the game, but I believe things would have been different. Especially that Driver TD in which he never had control, that was 3rd down and they would have been forced for a FG attempt.
Also, when the Giants had the ball on the final drive, 1st and goal, you GOTTA run the ball a couple times, you know you can't give Rodgers the ball back with a minute left and a TO. Poor clock management for sure.
Overall I know we have to look forward, and I think actually what TC and JR are doing is silly running around with this photograph, the game is over, worry about the Cowboys.
If we play like this the rest of the year, we make the playoffs, but which Giant team shows up next week. Just remember, in our SB year, that last game of the season we lost to NE by the EXACT same score, 38-35. Maybe its an omen!!
Anyway just my 2 cents, any thoughts??
Another thing I wanted to add, WHY THE HELL DIDN'T they blitz Rodgers more? I understand blitzing is taking a gamble, but if you don't blitz hes gonna sit there and pick you apart anyway, you mine as well blitz and if you get burned you get burned, but at least by blitzing you have a chance to create big plays, sacks, FFs, Ints.. Just don't understand it. If you don't blitz hes gonna score and pick you apart anyway, mine as well take your chances. I would have been blitzing 70% of the defense downs
