The debacle that has been the performance of the NFL’s replacement officials his a new low on Monday night (as you’ve no doubt heard and seen) when two scab refs took what should have been a game-ending interception for the Green Bay Packers, and turned it into a game-ending and game-winning touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks.
Jason Garrett knows the controversy is out there, but he believes his team--who it should be added, is on pace for a franchise record in penalties--would be best served to focus on themselves, and not the scab refs that may or may not be going anywhere anytime soon.
“What we try to do is focus on playing and coaching,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m going to be honest with you, there have been times where there have been calls during the game where you naturally react to it--everybody does.
“At the same time it’s like, ‘Guys, get back. Just focus on doing your job. They’re going to be fine. They’ll spot it the right way. They’ll call it the right way. They’ll get it figured out.’ We’ve really tried to do that. I’ve harped on that during the week and prior to the game and during the game as well. I think our team has done a good job of that.”
