The worst partisan officiating I've seen anywhere this season. Seems we need to score twice or three times to get 6 points.

More like the worst defense ever...6 TDs allowed by a back up QB...

Since the officials seem to make two or three suspect calls worth about 21 points to the Packers today, I think the Lions should call them out on it. Although it will be tough to beat a really good team like New Orleans Saints, it's not far fetched if the Lions bring that kind of offensive intensity and show any kind of defense. If it happened than they would be going back to Lambeau field to play the Packers. You better believe there will be much more scrutiny on the officiating. Every touchdown will be counted and a fumble better get rewarded to the team that recovers it or there will be complaints coming from more places than the city of Detroit. They should have saved their crew of officials for a game that really mattered.

Fun game to watch except for the lousy calls, especially the obviously blown touchdown call that ended up being the difference in the game. No comments from the refs on that one? Wonder if they had money on Green Bay?
