Marshawn Lynch reacts to controversial call

Courtesy of Field Gulls and Gridiron Grunts, Seattle Seahawks fans got to hear running back Marswahn Lynch's reaction to the controversial call made at the end of Monday night's 14-12 win over the Green Bay Packers.

In the 13-second YouTube clip, filmed by Lynch on his phone after he had a postgame meal at a steakhouse with his grandmother, several friends and some business associates, the sixth-year back asked NFL fans why they've been directing their anger toward the Seahawks.

"We don't make the calls. We just play ball. Don't be mad at us," Lynch said.

Seahawks blog reacts to MNF's crazy ending

It's still resonating in everyone's minds. The game dubbed by Field Gulls' Danny Kelly as the 'most controversial game in the history of Monday Night Football', featured a Seattle Seahawks team that has the uncomfortable distinction of having to celebrate a win that never should have been. A win debated from coast-to-coast as asterisk-worthy, a hoax, a sham.

Kelly both asks and answers a litany of questions surrounding the last play of the game and whether the replacement officials got it right based on the NFL rulebook as well as what it says in regards to ‘simultaneous possession'.

But Kelly tried to get back to what would have been the story of the game if it had not been for that controversial ending, and that's the play of the Seahawks' defense. When you sack the reigning league MVP eight times in the first half and have one of the most explosive offenses in the league out of rhythm for most of the game, you need to be talked about. Instead, they are mentioned at the bottom of every conversation about this game because of the ending.

So much happened in the game that Kelly couldn't even get to the number of penalties that the Seahawks racked up (again). Guess there's always tomorrow.

NFL backs replacement refs on call

The NFL released a statement on Tuesday backing the referees decision to not overturn the touchdown call during Monday night's Packers-Seahawks game.


Greg Jennings Expected To Suit Up For Monday Night Football

Wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the field on Monday night when the Green Bay Packers visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jennings has been dealing with a groin injury that forced him to miss Green Bay's victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Jennings appeared in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, catching five balls for 34 yards. After not missing a single game for three seasons between 2008 and 2010, Jennings missed Green Bay's final two games in 2011 with an unrelated injury before returning for the team's second round playoff loss to the New York Giants.

In 2011, Jennings caught 67 passes for 949 yards and nine touchdowns, but has been usurped by Jordy Nelson as Green Bay's No. 1 receiver.

NFL Picks, Week 3: Peter King 'Tempted' To Pick Seahawks, Goes With Packers By One Instead

Despite sharing that he was "sorely, sorely tempted" to go with the Seattle Seahawks, Sports Illustrated's Peter King went with the Green Bay Packers winning 21-20 in this week's NFL prediction column.

After starting his analysis paragraph with three simple words, "love this game," King goes on to share that expects the 12th Man to bring the noise Monday night:

"...I think the noise of that stadium Monday night (the city's on fire waiting for this game, I'm told) will affect the Packers in their no-huddle operation, and because I think the physical secondary's going to knock around the Green Bay receivers."

Ultimately though, King believes that the Pack attack just has too many weapons for the Seahawks to handle for all 60 minutes of action.

In his other NFC West predictions, King has the Arizona Cardinals registering their first loss of the season to the Eagles, 13-9. He also has the San Francisco 49ers rolling over the Vikings easily with 33-17 win on the road.

But in possibly his most shocking upset of the week, King sees the St. Louis Rams heading into Soldier Field and knocking off the Bears, 23-20, with Chicago lacking Matt Forte.
