The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

By now, even non-football fans have heard about the officiating debacle in last night's showdown between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks (just check your Facebook feed). Facing a 12-7 deficit with just seconds left to play, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson rolled out of the pocket and threw a desperation heave into the end zone, resulting in a game-clinching interception for the Packers.

Except it wasn't. Instead, the NFL's much-maligned replacement officials inexplicably ruled the play a touchdown for the Seahawks, ignoring an obvious offensive pass-interference penalty and cementing the phrase "simultaneous catch" into the lexicon of poor sports officiating.

This screw-up will, hopefully, lead to the return of the real refs—but let's not forget that they too have made their share of awful calls over the years. Here's a look at some of the NFL's most controversial officiating decisions:

Tim Tebow Should Stick to Quarterback

Over the weekend, the New York Jets decided to use their much talked about backup quarterback Tim Tebow in a couple of offensive plays. One of the plays was an easy swing pass where Tebow could make the catch out in the flat and hopefully find some room to run. An immaculate reception it was not.

Playoff-bound Lions end regular season with wild loss to Packers

Although the Detroit Lions won four games this season in which they trailed during the fourth quarter, they couldn't do it a fifth time Sunday as the Green Bay Packers came away with a wild 45-41 win.  The Lions were torched by Green Bay's backup quarterback, Matt Flynn, who made his first career start and threw for a club-record six touchdowns. 

Even though the Lions haven't won in Green Bay in 20 years, they finished the 2011 regular season with 10 wins and 6 losses -- their best record since 1995.

Lions Stun Tebow And Broncos In Denver

The ruckus was all about Tim Tebow. The Bronco's new quarterback has been under the microscope since becoming a high draft pick last year. Yesterday, the Lions took some of the luster off his debut season with a 45-10 shellacking of Denver in the mile-high city. The Lions made Tebow look like a mere mortal with their strong defensive play that included an interception returned for a touchdown. After giving up a field goal on Denver's first possession, the Lions scored 45 unanswered points to make it a runaway.

Lions Move To 3-0 With Win!

After the first half, all I could say was that these looked like the "same ole Lions" that I grew up with. .....but, their second half comeback to defeat the Vikings 26-23, was something we have not seen from these Lions in decades. After fumbles, interceptions, and bad penalties in the first half, the Lions turned it around. What an amazing comeback on the arm of Matthew Stafford, and the catches of Calvin Johnson. It took them overtime to finish off the Vikings, but Jason Hanson's field goal in overtime moved the Lions to 3-0 for the season and left them one of four undefeated teams in the NFL.

Are These Detroit Lions For Real?

It has been a long, long time since the Detroit Lions started a season at 2-0. Some years they didn't even win two games in an entire season. Who could forget 0-16 just a few years ago? And now, after a 48-3 thrashing of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Lions look like Super Bowl contenders. Already this year they have a win on the road (at Tampa Bay last week), and their home opener yesterday had the crowd roaring with delight. Things only get tougher for the Lions as they head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings who are 0-2 and in desperate need of a win.

Reebok’s Custom Made 9/11 Cleats and Gloves Could Cost NFL Players

According to Yahoo! Sports, Reebok made NFL players custom gloves and shoes to be worn on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but this could be a fineable offense by the NFL if players choose to wear the gear. The NFL once fined Peyton Manning when he chose to break the NFL's strict uniform code -- if they adhere to this strict code, there could be multiple fines in the league.

Are You Ready For Some Lions Football?

The Detroit Lions finished up a perfect (4-0) exhibition season and are ready for the "real" season to begin. After finishing last season with four straight wins, there is hope for these Lions. They won all four exhibition games this season and are holding high hopes for 2001-12.

Of course, winning all your exhibition games doesn't mean much. The last time they did that they went 0-16 on the season. But each year brings new hope. There are couple of things that the Lions need to have go right this year if they are to turn around a lengthy string of losing seasons.
