Packers Get Thrilling Win over Cowboys

For the second straight week, the Dallas Cowboys’ season came down to a decision by the referee.

On Sunday they were not the beneficiaries after Dez Bryant’s 31-yard catch was overturned via replay by referee Gene Steratore. Instead of being a yard away from a potential game-winning touchdown, the Cowboys saw the Green Bay Packers run out the clock on the ensuing drive in the 26-21 divisional-round victory.

As a result, the Packers will move on to the NFC Championship Game next week at the Seattle Seahawks, and the Cowboys will have to spend the offseason wondering “what if.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett would not pin the loss on the overturned call, but he disagreed with Steratore’s ruling.

“I thought Tony (Romo) made a great throw, Dez made a great catch on the ball,” Garrett said. “Obviously it was ruled a catch at the outset. It looked like to me he had three feet down. What they describe to us all the time is ‘a move common to the game,’ and Dez reached out for the goal line like he’s done so many times. It’s a signature play for him. He maintained possession of it throughout, in my opinion.

“But let me make it really clear: This game wasn’t about the officiating. We had 60 minutes. We had an opportunity to come up here and win a football game, and at the end of the day we didn’t get that job done. That play was big in the game, but there were other plays in the game and unfortunately we didn’t do the things necessary to win the ballgame.”

Steratore said there were numerous angles that showed the ball hitting the ground and did not agree with Garrett’s assertion that Bryant made a move common to the game. After consultation with the New York offices, Steratore decided to change the call.

“Although the receiver is possessing the football, he must maintain possession of that football throughout the entire process of the catch,” Steratore said in a pool report. “In our judgment he maintained possession but continued to fall and never had another act common to the game. We deemed that by our judgment to be the full process of the catch and at the time he lands and the ball hits the ground it comes loose as it hits the ground, which would make that incomplete. Although he re-possesses it, it does contact the ground when he reaches so the repossession is irrelevant because it was ruled an incomplete pass when he had the ball hit the ground.”

Colts Upset The Broncos to Advance to AFC Championship

After a crushing 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts that shattered another season’s worth of Super Bowl dreams for the Denver Broncos. Manning and the offense was limited against the Colts. The first drive went well. A 32-yard pass to Julius Thomas set up a touchdown. That was the last time the Broncos got into the end zone, and that was the longest pass for Denver the entire game. The Broncos set an NFL record for points scored in a season in 2013.

This isn’t that offense. Manning’s arm, which has not been all that strong since his neck surgeries, seemed to weaken as the season went on. Manning had just a 76.8 rating in December. To put that in perspective, Jets quarterback Geno Smith had a 77.5 rating for the season. Manning’s rating against the Colts, when he was 26-of-46 for 211 yards, was just 75.5.

The Broncos now enter a fascinating offseason. They were built to win now, a team coming off an AFC championship hoping to keep Manning’s Super Bowl window open with the help of several free agents brought in by general manager John Elway. That push resulted in a one-and-done playoff season.

Phil Jackson Takes Full Responsibility For Knicks

Phil Jackson doesn’t want anyone to blame Derek Fisher, because he’s been holding things together throughout adversity , but the organization now has their sites on free agency and attracting top-flight talent to improve.

“This is a mea culpa. I take responsibility for it. Obviously I didn’t do the right thing in picking the group of guys that were here. A lot of it was etched in stone, we had guys with guaranteed contracts. But in anticipating that we were going to better, that we were giving hope to our fans that maybe there’s a possible playoff opportunity here, you know, that goes on me. We now have to take responsibility and move forward and make things happen, that also goes on me. Now I have to do the job that I was brought here to do.

The fans, I want them to leave Derek alone in this regard. He’s doing the best job possible. It’s not his fault.

We’re all worried about the fact that money is not going to just be able to buy you necessary talent. You’re going to have to have places where people want to come and play,” said Jackson, who signed a five-year contract worth a reported $60 million last March to serve as team president. “But I do think that New York situation holds a high regard in players and agents that have contacted us. We have no lack of agents that have contacted us for their players. We still think that we have a really good chance to develop a team.”
