The percolating debate about the non-call at the end of the Packers-Cardinals game could last a little while.
In the locker room after their season-ending loss, the Packers essentially chose not to add fuel to the fire.
Aaron Rodgers didn’t talk about the potential facemask penalty on the game’s final snap. He wasn’t even asked about it. Look for that to change Monday, although we doubt Rodgers will say anything headline-worthy after some time to digest the play.
Two other Packers involved in big non-calls, defenders Cullen Jenkins and Charles Woodson, also didn’t blame the officials. Jenkins was called for a questionable roughing the passer penalty.
“I don’t want to talk about too much, they might take my playoff check from me,” Jenkins joked to Greg A. Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Woodson and Larry Fitzgerald were involved in a physical battle that left Woodson on the ground in game-changing moments.
“It is what it is,” Woodson said. “I don’t cry about those things.
Could they have called it? Probably. But I just give those guys credit.
They made the plays they needed to make. And that’s the bottom line.”
