There are a lot of livid people in Green Bay and beyond after Monday night’s debacle of an ending in Seattle, but very few are more upset over the series of events than Packers guard Josh Sitton. Or, should we say, no one has been more willing to express their frustration than the big fella.
After leading the charge in blasting the NFL on Twitter after Green Bay’s loss, Sitton took it a step further on Tuesday during an interview with “The Jim Rome Show.” He said he would go on strike “just to end this crap” if the CBA would allow it. He also teed off on Golden Tate and Pete Carroll for refusing to admit they caught a break.
“I would say the two biggest goats out of this whole thing are Pete Carroll and Golden Tate,” Sitton said. “They’re calling it a good call and Golden Tate saying he caught it and there was no push in the back — be a man. You can be happy you won the game, I understand that, stuff is going to happen, but be a man and admit it was a bull-crap call and stand up and have some integrity. How are you going to face the fricking team when they know it’s bull crap? I think Golden Tate and Pete Carroll are completely full of crap.”
Victor Cruz expressed a similar opinion on Tuesday morning, saying he would insist he caught the ball during the game but would have no problem admitting he got away with one after the fact. Aside from all the obvious outrage over the call itself, a number of people have blasted Tate, Carroll and the Seahawks for pretending the officials got the call right. It’s hard to admit you didn’t deserve a win, so I’d be lying if I said I can’t understand where the Seahawks are coming from.
