    I'm talking about the one he called right before the first FG attempt that went wide, if he didn't call it they would have won.

    I don't think you can say that. Everybody heard the whistle clearly before the kick... you could tell he didn't really try.

    He really just did a practice kick that probably didn't help him at all.

    In all likelihood, he probably makes that kick 9 out of 10 times or better.

    Seattle lost by allowing those big gains in short times to get close enough to kick it. They also made it tough by being down 20 to nothing or so before starting their comeback.

    True. Carroll also should have thought about the fact before the kick that if Bryant did make the first one, Seattle still needed that time out, with only 8 seconds left.

    I just finished watching the game. And yes I had read too far earlier about the ending.
    So I watched imtently about what was controversial (while skipping commercials).

    Pete Carroll did call a time out before the field goal try. But that was their first time out used in the second half.
    The graphic at upper left screen clearly shows that. It was Atlanta that was out of time outs. The kicker clearly knew the kick didn't count.
    Calling time out right before the kick is stupid and annoying. Maybe now that fad will end for good. A waste of time coach.

    At that point Seattle was asking for a delay of game penalty for 5 yards. Probably should have.
    Didn't matter. Long and down the middle. The real issue is the last 9 seconds.
    Billick is boasting Seattle is out of time outs and has to use the sideline.
    No they didn't. A quick 20 yards down the middle to the tight end and an immediate time out would leave 1 or 2 seconds.
    Then a game winning field goal. Lynch catching and running out of bounds was to short and left only 2 seconds for a long hail mary.
    And Seattle had 2 timeouts left when the game ended.

    Billick then screwed up again right after the game and said Seattle was playing next week.
    Retire dude. You mislead everybody watching based on the comments here.
    Well my Niners are banged up and don't like turf, but most experts picked Green Bay this week.
    Still 4-2 playoff record in their favor. Not this year. Go back to that 20 below winter in Wisconsin.:sure:

    Is this the same Billick who after the game said, "This solidifies Seattle as the legitimate #1 seed"?

    Soon there will be a new term...

    Billicking - When the game you describe is substantially different than the one that actually happened... ex. "Seattle is solidly the #1 team" when said after Seattle has just lost to the actual #1 seed.

    Woot, go go Patriots. Time for a rematch of the AFC Championship. On the other side of news, if your going to talk trash, at least be someone people know on your own team. From ESPNBoston.com:
    New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight

    — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013

    The war of words between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots already is under way.

    While New England was in the process of defeating the Houston Texans on Sunday to set up an AFC Championship Game rematch with Baltimore, Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo ripped the Patriots on Twitter, particularly criticizing their no-huddle offense.

    "New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight," Ayanbadejo tweeted on his account, @brendon310.

    Ayanbadejo will get an opportunity to see New England's offense in person next weekend when the Ravens visit the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season. New England won last year's meeting, 23-20, thanks to a missed field goal by Baltimore's Billy Cundiff as time expired.

    The Patriots gained 457 yards of total offense in Sunday's 41-28 victory over the Texans, as Tom Brady passed for 344 yards while orchestrating a hurry-up offense that confounded Houston throughout the contest.

    But Ayanbadejo was unimpressed, referring to the Patriots' approach as "a gimmick."

    "Are you watching the game pats vs texans?," Ayanbadejo tweeted. "If so you see the hurry snap offense catch em b4 they set up. It's a gimmick."

    "Their offense is good enough to be successful with out that," he later tweeted.

    Ayanbadejo proceeded to make a critical references to the Spygate scandal and Patriots coach Bill Belichick's decision to cut wide receiver Tiquan Underwood one day before Super Bowl XLVI.

    "You know the same organization that did spygate and cut a guy the day b4 the Super Bowl," he tweeted.

    Ayanbadejo also referred to the Patriots' 2007 season, when they completed the only 16-0 regular season in NFL history but lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

    "18-1," he tweeted.

    The Ravens rallied past the Patriots for a 31-30 victory in Week 3 this season. Ayanbadejo, who did not record a tackle in that contest, posted several tweets stating that he "Can't Wait!" for the latest rematch between the rivals.

    Ayanbadejo also reiterated his distaste for New England's hurry-up offense, asserting that there is no place for it "in a sport that is predicated on mano y mano."
    Since when is the hurry up offense (which has been in football many years now) a gimmick >.> Don't be mad because your defense is fail at reacting. Why does it always seem the Ravens constantly whine about something not being 'fair'.

    If your defense falls apart because you don't have enough time for your committee meetings, even though you have in-helmet radios, you deserve to lose.

    Remember, the offense has just as much opportunity to screw up in the hurry-up as the defense does.

    Well said, sir, and it has been covered by many analyst this season the hard work and precision that goes into the Patriots hurry up, to do it as quickly and effeciently as they do. The plays ran count in some games this year when doing it were eye-popping.

    Nice to see the most crooked team in NFL history losing to the Ravens. Hopefully the score will keep up and we can say good-bye to Bill Belicheat and the Patriots.

    Most crooked team in NFL history? Umm.. Who was the 2nd most penalized team this year? That would be the Ravens. Who has the record for most penalties in a season? I believe that's the Raiders a few years ago.

    Name me one Patriot who's been arrested on rape charges, or killed their girlfriend, or killed a teammate while driving drunk, or shot themselves in the leg while brandishing a loaded gun in a club.

    If your measure of "most crooked" is the act of recording, on videotape, something that is normally done with a clipboard, notebook and pencil, well, that certainly says something.

    The truth hurts. Deal with it. New England is the most corrupt team in the league. Everybody and their grandmother knows they cheat.

    Stop dodging the issue by trying to bring up non-football, off the field stuff about which no one cares.

    Since when do penalties equal crooked? What are you talking about? Cheating = crooked.

    Exactly! He's just trying to play dodge ball with what everyone knows is the sad truth.

    Not sure about that, but Belichick sure is a poor sport. Refuses an interview on the post game show? Maybe he didn't want us to see him and Tom crying in the locker room?

    He snubbed CBS, but at least he did actual show up for the NFL post game press conference to say they were just outplayed [link]
