I think that if there was a Catch II, it should be Taylor's catch in Super Bowl 23 (still the best Super Bowl ever, Tyree be damned).
Oh and I don't give a crap that Rice fumbled two plays earlier, there were much worst calls in previous games that GB got.
Like the MNF game in GB in 96. Favre throws a pass to Don Beebe, the ball skips off of the ground, Beebe traps it, McDonald touches him while he was on the ground, Beebe gets up and runs 59yds for a TD, refs give it to him. Final score of the game was 23-20 GB, GB finishes 13-3, we're 12-4. That game cost us first in the West (Carolina beat us twice and held the tie breaker, they finished 12-4 as well) and we lost to Green Bay in the Divisional round in Green Bay.
or the time Gary Plummer recovered a fumble and went 98yds, only to have the refs rule the Packers RB (Edgar Bennet I believe) down before the fumble (he wasn't).
Packer fans have no leg to stand on when it comes to the refs and bad calls.
The horrible calls in that series has by far aided Green Bay. It was so bad at one point I seriously thought about quitting watching the NFL
