Even if you didn't watch the game last I'm sure a lot of you will hear about his today. To start with most of the game was bad lots of flags throughout, most good calls, and very little offense the whole night. The very last play of the game is a hail mary bomb into the endzone. First, before the ball gets to the endzone Tate (the Seattle player) clearly pushes a Green Bay in the back, knocking him to the ground. This should have been offensive pass interference but no ref called, and you can't review a plenty while looking at the replay.
Now the catch, clearly a packer catches the ball in air and Tate throws his arms around him. They both land and they are fighting each other for possession of the ball. Two refs come running in standing right over the two players and one calls it a touchdown the other gives the ball to the packers. This morning everyone seems to think that this was clearly the wrong call and the packers got screwed. There is a dual possession rule in the NFL, which states if two or more players have possession the ball goes to the offensive player or the player who had possession first. So the question than becomes does the packer have possession before Tate? The amount of possession each player has is not important, even if Tate only has 2% possession of the ball it should be a touchdown.
The way I saw it, since the packer player who catches the ball jumped 3 feet in the air, he doesn't have possession till his feet hit the ground. By the time he lands Tate had one hand clearly on the ball and the other wrapped around the player. If the packer player had a good solid grip on the ball he should have ripped it away from Tate, but he couldn't. In fact, the two players fought for the ball for 5 minutes and in the end it was Tate who walked away with the ball one everyone was pulled away. In the end, it should have been offensive pass interference game over. If that wasn't called than I give the jump ball to Seattle, game over.
