Takes a real class act to do what he did.

Aside from being a innovative offensive mind, the guy really does represent the Packers well. I hope he's with us for a long long time.

Elliott said that during training he remembered being told that "you don't really call interference on a Hail Mary. ... You just let it go."


Ugh. Is that honestly taught in training? To just not call stuff on hail marys?

I got a $100 bill that says if Shields did that to Tate it would have been DPI. What a joke.

I'm sure they taught it, but more of a jostling for position type PI. Not an I'm going to shove you to the ground PI.

Just saw this story on nfl.com. Kudos to you McCarthy. So much good press for him and the Packers organization because of all this attention on us.

McCarthy is nothing but classy. Wouldn't choose anybody else to lead my football team then the combo of TT in the FO and Mike as our HC.

I'm sure to an extent the NFL says something like that, but I think it was obviously misinterpreted. They probably tell their refs not to call it unless it's overly blatant.

On Showtime's 'Inside the NFL' show when they interviewed those 2 replacement refs Elliott did admit after looking at replays and later LEARNING THE RULE he would have ruled it an interception and not a TD. The 2 Rent-a-Refs said all of them were learning the rules as they went along. Good lord! I still get rather peeved when I think the league thought these inadequate officials could call a professional football game and nobody would get seriously screwed like we did. Confused

Classy gesture, indeed.

The only other guy I might trade with McCarthy is Mike Tomlin- the two classiest HC's in the NFL.

I think he was referring to phone number.

You stay classy Green Bay.

I wish there was a way to stress how Mac says it in his accent. "Hi, I'm Mike McCarthy, and I coach football up here in GREEN bay."
