You're right. Though he did get a practice kick.

Something just doesn't feel right about that win.

Carroll's an idiot for trying to ice the kicker and then claiming he didn't know who called that timeout when it was clearly him according to the replay.

Considering the Falcons had almost more than they could handle with the Seahawks, they're gonna curbstomped by the Niners next week. I got the Niners by at least two TDs.

To the Packers fans who are still mad at the Hawks... I wish that call hadn't happened with your team. I love the Packers, except when they're playing against the Hawks. Our teams have a shared history and some shared players as well as a common awesome coach. Please don't stay mad at us forever...
I couldn't take a Seahawks win today on top of last night. So I'm glad they lost. Sorry.

There is a borderline incestuous relationship between the teams, with coaches, players, and front office personnel shuffling between the two for the past 15 years or so.

I would say up until that game for the most part most Packers fans liked the Seahawks. I'm not saying it can't be like that again, but for at least the fans that I know personally... we all hate Pete Carroll and his antics, and we thought Golden Tate handled the incident like a punk. I don't think I'm cheering for the Seahawks until those two are gone.

Really? Because from the replay I watched, Carroll never made the "T" signal (which I thought was crucial to calling a time out), and looks like he even tells the ref that "I'm not going to call a time out". I was confused by the whole interaction.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

In these situations what I usually see them do is tell the official on his sideline ahead of time that they're going to call timeout, so that he's ready for it. Then stand right next to him and say "timeout" before the snap. "T" signal? The ref isn't looking at him, he's looking at the players pre-snap, and I'm guessing they wouldn't appreciate coaches running onto the field and/or shoving hands into their line of sight right at the snap.

Also, there's no reason for him to tell the ref "I'm not going to call timeout". That's just stupid.

Irrelevant. If the coach is "shoving his hands in the referees face" prior to the snap, then there is no play and time out is called.

Keep in mind that they're trying to call it when the snap is imminent for a psychological advantage and it is not exactly unheard of for them to get the snap off before the coach calls for timeout in that situation.

This is the important part. I very much doubt the camera caught him telling the ref " I'm not going to call timeout". It didn't take an expert lip reader to see him clearly mouth the word "timeout".

Well, if the NFL couldn't get the Brady/Peyton matchup they no doubt wanted, I'm sure they'll be happy enough with a Patriots/Ravens rematch.

I wonder if NFL and TV officials will have heart attacks if we get a Ravens/Falcons Superbowl...

It can't be 6:30 next Sunday soon enough.

Great game Vereen. You sure don't look like you're hurt Ninkovich.

I Gronk'd a newspaper at some point during the first half before hearing he re-broke his arm.

Heal up Woodhead and Jones.
