The Seattle-Screw / Bad Call, Good Win
Monday Night Football came down to a controversial call/replay, last-second, Hail-Mary Pass that resulted in a touchdown and a come from behind win for the Seattle Seahawks (The Seattle Screw). Blame the replacement referees, blame the instant replay rules, blame the NFL rules in general, but don’t over analyze the results, that catch, the touchdown, the points on the board, or the win.
No one cheated, so it’s a win. Even if the Seahawks did cheat, they still won. It’s the referees call, and the replay could be looked as a legitimate touchdown (by rule). Dozens of MISSED CALLS or FLAGS alter football games every week, so why is this TD so differnt? Replacement Refs are under a microscope, NFL is under a microscope, Packers are widely touted and the national spotlight of Monday Night Footaball will over analyze this games result. There are 32 teams in the NFL that play 16 games each year, and any team would love to take a win every week, any way you can get it. So any team would take this win. Think about if the roles were reversed and quarterback Aaron Rogers threw that ball to wide receiver Jordy Nelson, would this win be so controversial? Probably not, because the Packers are the Packers. If wins gets you into the playoffs, then wins are what you demand. So take the win and enjoy it.

Antonio Garay has been ready to play for two weeks and in practice he’s the fastes and the strongest and he is the best lineman on the team. remeber is stats remeber how he gets double and trippled teamed and what that does for linbackers that better rethink in SanDiago I
Garay was very good in San Diego, in 2010, ONE SEASON! Last season, Garay wasn’t on the field as much as he was the year before (due to nagging injuries). Garay wasn’t that great last season, he wasn’t… Being the strongest defensive lineman on the team really doesn’t mean much, if you can not stay healthy and on the field. I don’t think he’s the best defensive lineman on the team, let alone at his position. In my opinion, NT Cam Thomas played better than Garay in 2011, and Franklin is playing very good right now. Sure, getting double and tripled team is what you want from your 3-4 nose tackle, but Garay has yet to play (or be active game day) this year, so he’s been ZERO teamed.
If Garay is SO GOOD, why didn’t any other NFL team give him a contract this season? He was a free agent… I know he signed a two year deal, but he will not be in San Diego in 2013. He’ll get cut as the 2nd year of his contract is too big for his lack of production. And he may get cut this year…
So far, in 2012, this is the pecking order:
1 Vaughn Martin
2 Aubrayo Franklin
3 Corey Liuget
4 Kendall Reyes
5 Cam Thomas
Hasn’t Played: Antonio Garay
