It's funny, I was told to not complain about the bad ref'ing in SB 2006, told that bad calls happen. Told that I was a whiner because I brought up the FACT that the refs blew that ever important game, they even admitted they screwed the pooch! Yet you same folks are now wearing those shoes. PRICELESS!
I LOVE KARMA!

So, never mind the game, how about that Seahawk defense?

10 sacks in the past two games (Cowboys, GB) and have held Romo and Rodgers to 1 TD combined.
Clemens TIES AN NFL RECORD for most sacks in a half!
Did you hear that ? Yes, that was the sound of on of the NFL's top elite defenses making sounds around the nation last night.

Replacement officials have taken over all discussion about "Monday Night Football," but don't overlook the fact that the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks put on a defensive clinic.

The Packers gave up just 238 yards and allowed the Seahawks to convert 2 of 11 third downs. Quarterback Russell Wilson completed 47.6 percent of his passes for 130 yards, including the 24-yard Hail Mary. Rookie linebacker Nick Perry showed ridiculous athleticism chasing Wilson down from behind for a sack. Marshawn Lynch averaged 3.9 yards per carry. The Seahawks reached the red zone just once.

The Seahawks had eight first-half sacks -- more than 23 teams have all season. They held the Packers offense to 12 points. Remember, this is reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers and the highest-scoring team from 2011. The offense managed 268 yards and was 7 for 15 on third down. The Packers found the red zone twice all night.

This would have been celebrated if this was a Ravens-Steelers game. Or if we weren't busy talking about the final play.

By the way, the Packers (261 yards per game allowed) and Seahawks (272.3) are ranked No. 3 and No. 4 in total defense. Seattle has allowed the fewest points in the league (13 points per game) and Green Bay (18) is No. 7.
