But we get the ball on the next play and hell we screw up fumble it and give you guys the ball on the 20 I think? We get ZERO points.
Now imagine if you got the ball as you wanted...ball would be at the 1. Maybe you guys get the first down...or MAYBE we get a safety and the ball back.
We rough the kicker you guys get to continue the drive..maybe the whole game changes and you guys win because of a TD from that drive...or MAYBE we win because of a Pick Six CK throws shortly later. Just saying you really can't say oh if so and so changed this would have happened. At least not for the above situations.
I don't complain about calls, Seahawks have had their fair share of bad calls and non-calls over history as well, but in general I think they all cancel out. A call can cost you a play, but the team wins you the game.
Please don't bring up the tin foil hat theories either, there are so many of them in Seattle and I'm not on that bandwagon either. We lost the Sonics cus we screwed up, we lost the SB because the Steelers played better.
Lastly there IS talk about making EVERY play reviewable, but my God how slow is the game going to be after that.
Everyone makes this last point, but it doesn't make any sense. Coaches would still only have 2+1 challenges.
