We were ready to chalk this one of up to another case of Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy being a moron. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case.
In the second quarter, the Falcons converted a fourth-and-3 when Matt Ryan passed to tight end Tony Gonzales for six yards. The replay showed that Gonzales appeared to be bobbling the ball on his way to the ground and that the nose hit the ground.
It was a clear situation for a challenge, considering the magnitude of the play, but McCarthy kept the red flag in his pocket.
The story the Packers tell is the TVs in the Georgia Dome were delayed longer than usual and no one was able to see the replay in time.
We know you’re a bunch of dumb rednecks down there in the dirty south, but really Atlanta?
Call the cable guy.
