    How many games must the referees decide before someone is held accountable? Did they just want to make amends to Green Bay for the bad call vs. Seattle earlier in the year? Or is this game just fixed?

    Mike Carey needs to be sent packing either way. What a horrible mistake.
    Bring back the replacement refs.

    Here's hoping Ozzie can keep him around, Tyrod wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire today.
    If they offer more then the Ravens, Flacco is gone. Minnesota OL and defense are up and coming.Todays game was a typical Ravens game. Tyrod dominated in the first half and turned into Flacco the second half. Sacks and a pick 6 is something we are used to seeing lately. How about McKinnie, standing around while the play proceeds, how many of those sacks did he let happen?

    Absolutely not. First, the Jim Schwartz rule dictates that if a play WOULD be automatically reviewed, a coach inappropriately throwing a challenge flag wipes out that review. But they let the review proceed anyway.

    Then, remember that the CALL ON THE FIELD was a fumble recovered by Minnesota. Their only options are to let the call on the field stand or call him down by contact. The ball didn't look to cross the plane when his knee was down, and either way there wasn't definitive evidence.

    But the review COULD NOT have proceeded because of the Jim Schwartz rule. It was impossible. And they confirmed that by flagging McCarthy... except they forgot to enforce the rule in its totality.

    Now, they've called 3 straight penalties on Minnesota, and all of them were bogus/ticky tack at best. It appears that either the league has decided the Bears must make the playoffs or Mike Carey has money on this game as well as all the other games he's rigged over the years.

    Your premise is wrong, thus poisoning the rest. Pereira explained everything perfectly.

    The Schwartz rule doesn't apply because McCarthey threw the flag AFTER the replay official had already buzzed down. Hence, the review takes place and the Packers are assessed a 15 yard penalty. Schwartz threw his flag BEFORE the replay official buzzed the field.

    Second, it was clearly not a fumble as the ball crossed the goal line prior to his right knee touching.

    Like I said, 100% correct. I swear, the hate Carey gets around here is astounding sometimes.

    No matter what, this Viking/Packers game has been damn entertaining.

    "Receiver in the area?" What, on that side of the field????

    That's intentional grounding in 15 other games for 31 other teams.

    That is an incredibly ticky-tack penalty right there. I don't think it's quite BS level, but that's veeeeerrry ticky-tack.

    Really think there's something going on here in this game.
