Mike McCarthy throws challenge flag on lost fumble, gets review anyway

Mike McCarthy AP

We got to know the rule barring coaches from throwing the challenge flag to ask for replay review of calls that are automatically reviewed earlier this season and we got a twist on it this Sunday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy threw his red challenge flag when the officials ruled that the Vikings recovered a fumble by wide receiver James Jones in their own end zone in the third quarter. Jones was lunging for the end zone and looked like he got the ball into the end zone before fumbling, but McCarthy’s move seemed to secure the Vikings the ball since plays are unreviewable by rule when coaches throw their flag.

That’s not what happened this week, though. Referee Mike Carey said that the replay official had already buzzed him to start the replay, so the play would go on to be reviewed while the Packers were penalized 15 yards for the improper use of the challenge flag. The penalty didn’t wind up hurting Green Bay too much since the ruling post-replay was a touchdown for Jones and the 15 yards came on the kickoff.

Any rule to wipe out replays that will get a call right is a bad rule, but this situation was no different from the Lions play on Thanksgiving that made this rule well-known around the league. Carey’s decision wound up with the right call, but it wasn’t one that Vikings coach Leslie Frazier met with good humor.

It’s surprising that McCarthy still didn’t know the rule given all the attention it got this year, but one of his players was a bit more on the ball. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson picked up the flag and put it in his pants because he knew McCarthy was jeopardizing the team’s chances of coming away with the touchdown. He and the coach were able to laugh about it thanks to Carey’s ruling.

The touchdown made the score 27-24 late in the third quarter of a game that’s shaping up to be a real thriller in the final moments.

    Perhaps it was a makeup call for the horrible “catch” by wright, which led to a TD.

  2. lordfletcher says: Dec 30, 2012 6:59 PM

    Not one to bitch about the refs and penalties but man are the Packers getting all the breaks so far.

    NFL loves Rodgers

  3. kliplee says: Dec 30, 2012 7:00 PM

    i agree, it should just be a 15 yard penalty outright. nullifying a review is bad for the INTEGRITY OF THE ALMIGHTY SHIELD.

  4. FinFan68 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:01 PM

    I think the rule is stupid but the NFL chose to keep it for the rest of the season. McCarthy threw the challenge flag just like the other coaches did earlier this year. There is nothing in the rule book that talks about when the flag is thrown nor was it ever discussed in the aftermath of the Lions debacle. By rule the play should have never been reviewed and it should have been Vikings ball on the 35 (touchback + 15 yd penalty) with a 27-17 score. I think the object is to get the call right but the NFL already said they wouldn’t change it this year. Dumb move but they should be held accountable and not treat teams differently.

  5. flyman2 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:02 PM

    Carey should have just said “The Packers threw the challenge flag on an automatic review, but because they are the Packers, we will allow it.”

  6. jeffrey723 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:03 PM

    If Detroit was a better team, that call wouldn’t have gone against them either. The league uses the Lions as a whipping boy for all sorts of arcane rules because they’re irrelevant. (And I’m a long suffering Lions fan)

  7. tdrundmc says: Dec 30, 2012 7:03 PM

    I wonder what Rodgers yelled at Fatso for throwing the challenge flag.

  8. steelersfanfromtheseventies says: Dec 30, 2012 7:03 PM

    The vikes got jobbed on that one.

  9. lionsfan415 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:04 PM

    Thank you NFL for your fairness and objectivity, I applaud you for calling things like these the same across the board, us Lions fans appreciate it very much.

  10. skolvikes says: Dec 30, 2012 7:05 PM

    Stupid rule to begin with. Even more stupid of McCarthy to throw the flag.

  11. amanistumor says: Dec 30, 2012 7:06 PM

    It’s an attempt for the refs to job Vikings. The Rule is stupid and most all would agree, but you can’t call it both ways and more importantly incorrect after precident has been set the other way.

    F’ it. AP is one breakoff carry away from the books and the playoffs. They might not be able to win it all but could easily beat their first opponent for the “upset” win.

  12. liondoc says: Dec 30, 2012 7:08 PM

    Typical of the regular refs and their love for all things green bay. Mike Carey is making it up as he goes along. As awful as the replacement refs were, at least they tried to be impartial.

  13. tdrundmc says: Dec 30, 2012 7:08 PM

    Hey at least you’ll get a better draft pick

  14. vikesfansteve says: Dec 30, 2012 7:09 PM

    Well that makes up for the non catch/catch to Jarius Wright I guess but that was a bad call McCarthy should have been flagged. The problem I have is the blatant holding by the Packers receivers. Even to the point of pulling jerseys off pads and not being called. Disgusted with these officials.

    If the officials were trying to job the Vikings, why would they have initially ruled it a fumble?

  16. coreydemoss says: Dec 30, 2012 7:10 PM

    What does it say about the coach that two of his players knew the rule better than he did? Jordy Nelson was pretty calm, cool and collected playing “hide the flag.”

  17. tmcb7 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:10 PM

    @jeffrey723 get your facts straight before you bitch. It happened to Coach Smith/Falcons before the Lions.

  18. dirtysouthironmen says: Dec 30, 2012 7:11 PM

    Josh, do you know where in the rulebook it states that if the play is already under review the challenge flag does not count? I am looking but can’t find it yet. Thanks in advance.

  19. trapshoot says: Dec 30, 2012 7:11 PM

    It was indeed a goofy call.

  20. melikefootball says: Dec 30, 2012 7:12 PM

    Here we go could cost the Vickings the game as Detroit few weeks ago.. These refs are just as replcement refs except the tv announcers do not continue to ram the refs over and over. Wasn’t this the same ref that threw a flag on some Steeler because of knee touching the ground.

  21. skolvikes says: Dec 30, 2012 7:16 PM

    I was under the impression that the rule was –

    A replay official “cannot initiate a review of any ruling against a team that commits a foul that delays the next snap.”

    They called the penalty on Green Bay, McCarthy threw the flag. Where is the exception that McCarthy threw the flag after the booth initiated the review come into play? Is that in the rule book, because I can’t find it.

    Ridiculous rule or not, you’ve got to call it correctly which it clearly wasn’t in this case by the very fact that they still called the 15 yard penalty.

  22. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:17 PM

    Am I the only one who wants Peterson to break the record more than the Vikings making the playoffs?

  23. otis52gsh says: Dec 30, 2012 7:18 PM

    That was awesome. Great call!! Clearly a touchdown? Worst officiated game in a long time.

  24. panamon says: Dec 30, 2012 7:18 PM

    I don’t see how you can say “nothing was different”, you think they just wait around to start a review? This is a nice sensationalist piece but don’t ignore the facts so easily.

  25. bender4700 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:21 PM

    Packers do get all the breaks.

    Except the whole Seattle game that could be the difference in GB having a bye week. Good call to whatever smart guy said GB gets all the breaks.

  26. jerrykill4pres says: Dec 30, 2012 7:22 PM

    I guess i see it differently than you… I’m glad the call was made correctly. It wasn’t a fumble. Even though the call was screwed up this year before, doesn’t mean it needs to be again. They got the call correct this time.

  27. bender4700 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:23 PM

    Vikings fans, the play WAS a TD!

    We should want the REAL call to be made. Stop crying.

  28. koenig61 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:23 PM

    Since they have the rule and won’t change it until next season, how can you all of a sudden have “we had already been buzzed to review the play for this call” but not have already been buzzed for the texans score against the lions?!?

    Makes no sense why they would even need to be buzzed. ALL SCORES and ALL TURNOVERS are automatically reviewed. int the Lions Texans game, The second the Texan crosses the goal line it’s automatically reviewed, same when the packer fumbled in this game, automatically reviewed, yet Schwartz is a penalty with no review, and McCarthy is a penalty, but only after we review it?!? .

    I hate the rule, but you suddenly can’t come up with this “we had already been buzzed ruling”.

    Play was ruled a fumble, so it’s a turnover, automatic review, you throw flag, NO REVIEW. Feels like I’m watch a Patriots game with calls like this. Still looking for indisputable evidence ball crossed plane of goal line before knee hit.

  29. dapell says: Dec 30, 2012 7:31 PM

    Frazier should have thrown a challenge flag to get a review of when exactly the booth buzzed down and when McCarthy threw his flag. It’s a complete joke. The refs made up an exception to make sure the league’s favorite (in the NFC at least) franchise didn’t get screwed over. This stuff happens every single year to the Lions. Green Bay gets hosed by replacement refs who don’t know they’re supposed to get special treatment and the real refs make up rules to for the Packers to prevent a SECOND penalty against McCarty for this.

  30. albertmn says: Dec 30, 2012 7:34 PM

    I have to agree with most of the others above. While the call should have been TD, following the previous ruling by the NFL, it should not have been reviewed because the flag was thrown. Stupid rule, but since the NFL didn’t change it, it should have been enforced as written, not be allowed to be changed by the officiating crew on the field.

    On another officiating point, what do other think when continued play results in penalties that shouldn’t have happened? Example is the non-fumble by Peterson that was called a fumble and then the Vikings end up with a penalty on the fumble return. The return should never have been allowed, so the penalty wouldn’t have happened. Wish there was a way to change that, as the Vikings were penalized due to the bad call on the fumble.

  31. drpompanoduke says: Dec 30, 2012 7:34 PM

    Different rules for different teams…… The NFL applying rules evenly……..

  32. eaglesooneru2 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:37 PM

    I’ve always thought McCarthy was a dolt and this proved it. Total makeup call for Seattle game. Vikes have been screwed by zebras all day. I’m an eagle fan and have no dog in this fight

    That’s not the point, it’s the fact that they can have a certain rule for one team and completely different for another team.

  34. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 30, 2012 7:50 PM

    As a Vikings fan, this is not what I wanted, the Vikings are going to get slaughtered next week.

    9 yards.

    All those third down plays he could have been in on. I’ll take the record anyday over a team that won’t do anything in the playoffs.

  35. westclaims says: Dec 30, 2012 7:51 PM

    Packers vs 49ers, and Broncos vs Patriots. Then, Patriots vs Packers for the super bowl. Ultimate advertising ops there?

  36. purpblooded says: Dec 30, 2012 7:59 PM

    Thanks for saying so Eagles fan, Packers always get the call, except the fail Mary.

    Tainted, why don’t you just admit you’re a Packer fan.

  38. giantsfanlewis says: Dec 30, 2012 8:03 PM

    Another example of ref biased. Anyone still wonder why he packers were ready to boycotte the season til the ref who wouldn’t hurt the “integraty of the game” I mean status quo

  39. bfrsd says: Dec 30, 2012 8:04 PM

    Gotta love all the Packer haters on every forum on here. James Jones scores a TD and the refs incorrectly rule it was a fumble. So didn’t the refs get it wrong in the Vikings favor in the first place? Just like the ball hitting the ground on the blooper pop up?

    You guys are stinkin’ hilarious. In 16 games the Packers have played this season, they’ve been on the wrong side of officiating blunders in at least 75% of them.

  40. imaginesuperbowlwin says: Dec 30, 2012 8:05 PM

    It’s okay. VIKES WIN!!!

  41. iluvbears says: Dec 30, 2012 8:07 PM

    Once again, the Packers get all of the calls. The Vikings overcome both the Pack & the officials & win at the end.

  42. packerbacker12 says: Dec 30, 2012 8:11 PM

    The Vikings made the playoffs today but Viking fans still manage to cry about a call that didn’t even change the course of the game.

    Granted, I am not surprised considering Viking fans do the same thing after every Packer-Viking game.

  43. packerbacker12 says: Dec 30, 2012 8:14 PM

    “Thanks for saying so Eagles fan, Packers always get the call, except the fail Mary.”

    In the Packers-Saints game, Darren Sproles clearly fumbled on a kickoff return but the refs ruled him down. That happened the very next week after the Fail Mary fiasco. The Packers still won though so it doesn’t matter.

    as previously stated, yes it was a touchdown, but did you not watch the thanksgiving game? Steve Slaton was clearly down on his 75 yard td scamper and Schwartz throws the challenge flag and they decide not to challenge it because of that rule, that’s the point, if they were consistent with their calls then what should of happen is the refs saying they wont challenge the play and Vikings would of had the touchback. That’s the point not wether or not they blew the actual call but the blunder of the technicallity that ensued.

  45. cinvis says: Dec 30, 2012 8:23 PM

    Very few will understand this, but… It’s the Packers who got screwed by this rule.

    On the JJ touchdown the refs got it right. This was discussed at length after the Lions game that if the review had been initiated then the play could still be reviewed.

    The bad call was on the AD fumble. The o-lineman batting the ball out of the Packers hands is not taunting… it’s DELAY-OF-GAME! Any delay of game penalty (not just the throwing of a challenge flag) should result in no review. The penalty occurred immediately after the play so there is no way the review could have been initiated. The fumble should have stood. Pack ball.

    So it’s actually the pack who got screwed by the refs getting the rule wrong.

  46. purpblooded says: Dec 30, 2012 8:36 PM

    Lewis, You were right about the Giants winning, but wrong about the Packers laying down. I enjoy watching the Giants beating the Packers…… Packer fan, It’ll be fun next week too!

  47. thetooloftools says: Dec 30, 2012 8:54 PM

    Looks to me like the NFL let the Green Bay Packers “get one back” after that Seattle fiasco.
    How do you screw up replay anyway?

    ——————————————-
    I can’t stand your dirty team but as a fan of football in general, I thought it was awful that Schwartz (and before him, Mike Smith) had that rule used against them. It isn’t about upholding a terrible rule. It’s about getting it right. The refs got it wrong initially and made it right. That’s how it’s supposed to be.

    You do realize being a Lions fan that the Vikings fans complain about everything, right? If that was Simpson getting a TD and the refs calling it a fumble, every Viking fan on here would be talking about how the refs purposely blew the first call because they love the Packers. It’s ridiculous.

    This isn’t the NBA. All of the 32 teams have calls go for and against them every game and the Packers have actually had more against them this season. You people need to get over your hate for the Packers organization. I’m a Bucks fan and they suck every year. I envy the Lakers organization. I don’t hate on them.

  49. jonsilver1947 says: Dec 30, 2012 9:11 PM

    McCarthy just proved the knock against Schwartz for being a bad coach due to “losing control” re throwing the flag can and will occur with lots of coaches…what a colossally dumb rule…

    Gee, Mike McCarthy made the same mistake as Jim Schwartz. What do you Schwartz haters say now? Should McCarthy be fired too? Or does he get a bye because the refs suddenly became blind to his transgression and ignored the application of the rule?

  54. istallion says: Dec 30, 2012 9:35 PM

  57. purpblooded says: Dec 30, 2012 9:49 PM

    bfrsd……It’s not the NBA, I haven’t seen all the Packer games, but I have seen all the Packer vs Viking games. Blown calls favor the Packers about 5 to 1. The 2009 NFC championship game vs the Saints was even worse…….. Sometimes I wonder if the zebras got it in for the Vikes, going back to Drew Pearson whiskey bottle and the Randy Moss water bottle incident. (just kidding)

  62. veence69 says: Dec 30, 2012 10:38 PM

    The Packers are the spoiled first child of the NFL. These kind of calls go their way 99% of the time. Seeing as how they’ve already gotten their bad call out of the way this season (see: Fail Mary), they can be confident that they can look forward to another 3-4 years of red carpet like service from the NFL and it’s officials.

    Okay…so you Vikings fans on here are complaining about the refs in a game your team just won, ironically, and the blooper no catch was called a catch that led directly to a TD, and James Jones pretty obvious TD or at worst down by contact was called a fumble before being correctly overruled. Where in this game did the refs exactly favor the Packers? The biggest call in the entire game that directly led to points was the bad blooper no catch that went against the Packers. What is your point?

  65. jordiway73 says: Dec 31, 2012 12:23 AM

    As a Lions fan I knew as soon as he threw the flag they were still going to review the play, the Lions should have got the same call as the Packers but didnt. The NFL should have admitted they made a mistake on Thanksgiving and they still owe the Lions and their fans an apology.

  66. redraider5621 says: Dec 31, 2012 12:24 AM

    So basically all you queens fans are whining that the refs shouldnt have gotten a chance to correct a blatantly incorrect call….that wouldve given you guys two horrible calls that went your way (I think everyone knows the ball bounced off the ground on Wright’s “catch”), and yet you’re still crying Green Bay gets everything? If any of you haters would’ve watched Packers games this year you would know they got hosed week in and week out oustide of the Seattle. Then when one call (emphasis on “one”) goes the Packers way, everyone blows up like a firework screaming the game is fixed. Get a life people.

  67. redraider5621 says: Dec 31, 2012 12:31 AM

    And it may interest you guys to actually read what happened. When Schwartz threw the flag the booth review had not been initiated yet. Therefore, according to the stupid rule, the review is nullified. When McCarthy threw the flag, the booth review had already been initiated, therefore the review was able to continue. However, it still required a 15 yard penalty. Not that hard to understand.

  68. aahhyeahsucka says: Dec 31, 2012 12:37 AM

    Ya know, I watched this game and the Packers spent the entire time whining and bitching at the refs. YET, they always get these fluke favorable calls like this. It’s so annoying. The one time they don’t? “Fail-Mary”? We gotta hear about it every day, all the time, never stops. I guess the lesson here is to just let Aaron Rodgers ref the game in between Quarterbacking and we won’t have to hear so much complaining and conspiracy theories. You guys make the Raiders look sane.

  69. spartan822 says: Dec 31, 2012 1:15 AM

    That was the angriest I have seen Leslie Frazier get. And rightfully so. But ultimately the TD call was correct.

  70. pappavike says: Dec 31, 2012 2:27 AM

    As a Vikings fan! consistentcy would be nice? But I also am a firm beliver that calls balance out in the end! (most the time,Not always) I can honestly say that when your team wins your like oh well!! But when your team looses, Then you look back and say this or that wasn’t the right call or this or that was a penalty!! Everybody would like a perfect system! To error is human, to forgive devine!! Still a great game!!

  71. pravin68 says: Dec 31, 2012 2:49 AM

    So now the coaches are subject to pure luck as to how they pay for their mistakes? In the Detroiut game, the replay booth take their sweet time to review , so Schwartz’s action is more costly while in the Packers game, the review booth goes to work INSTANTANEOUSLY and that help Mike’s team despite the same mistake being made? So the severity of the penalty becomes more about the speed at which the review booth goes to action?

  72. hobby53963 says: Dec 31, 2012 9:05 AM

    what if the refs could just make the right calls in the first place? its funny how they can call a ball thats hit the ground complete, but miss 3 obvious holds on a late game play to setup the winning chipshot fg. perplexing.

  73. ketchupaholic says: Dec 31, 2012 9:42 AM

    Mike McCarthy is a complete Buffoon. For years Aaron Rodgers has saved his fat hide. Just listen to McCarthy ‘s press conferences. MORON!

  74. ejmat2 says: Dec 31, 2012 10:24 AM

    What cracks me up is Packer fans saying how they always get hosed by calls. LMAO. Just because it was ruled a fumble to begin with doesn’t mean they were being hosed. As you know ALL turnovers and scores get reviewed so it wouldn’t have mattered. But you have to go by what you see.

    Now on to the pseudo rule of being able to review once the challenge flag is thrown. First off, one of the stupidest rules I’ve ever heard. However, a rule is a rule and it should be the same for every game, every team. This review should have been stopped as soon as the challenge flag was thrown. By rule, Viking touchback and assess the 15 yard penalty and it should have been Viking rule at the 35.

    If anything, I would have even accepted the Packers keeping the ball because the knee was clearly down prior to the fumble, but having the ball on the 16 yard line after the penalty was assessed. But giving them a TD in that circumstance is ridiculous. I personally didn’t see any decisive evidence the ball crossed the line prior to the knee touching the ground. The ball did cross the line in his hand but I’m not sure if the knee was down yet. These refs make up stuff as they go.

  75. juanhughjazz says: Dec 31, 2012 8:05 PM

    This is why NFL rules are written so ambiguously. It allows the league to rule any way they want. They can make up any justification to fit just about any circumstance.

    Absolutely. But more than that we want fair and unbiased application of the rules, and by rule (because of Mcarthy’s stupidity) it should have been Vikings ball at the 35 yard line instead of a Packers TD. That mistake by the officials nearly gave the Packers another win they didn’t deserve.

    That is a fact, and it is indisputable.
