dezWell, this morning the football world is complaining about a call that the refs got absolutely correct. Sure it took a replay to get it right (overturned completion) but in the end, the NFL came through on this one. It boggles my mind that so many still have no idea that a receiver must maintain possession throughout the act of a catch when they go to the ground. Maybe us Packers fans just know it because of Calvin Johnson and Co. who did not know the rule back when it was instituted.

Here is Mike Pereira, former Vice President of officiating but no longer working for the NFL. This guy is the number one go-to guy when it comes to parsing out the NFL rules:

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

This is one of the more consistently called rules in the entirety of the NFL and it was correctly overturned to an incomplete pass. Congrats to the NFL for getting this one RIGHT and congrats to Mike McCarthy for throwing in the challenge flag. The Packers move on to Seattle!

Go Pack!
