Hawk thought refs might tell Packers they won

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 26, 2012 – 8:41 pm

Here’s a little humor to add to the aftermath of the controversial ending to Monday night’s game in Seattle.

Following the replay review and decision to uphold the touchdown on the final play, the Packers left the field. Several minutes later, the officials came into Green Bay’s locker room to inform the team that at least 11 players needed to return to the field so Seattle could kick the extra point.

The Packers were so convinced they’d won the game that seeing the officials drop in for a visit actually got their hopes up, momentarily.

“When I saw the refs come back in, I thought they were going to tell us we won the game, honestly,” linebacker A.J. Hawk said on Wednesday. “I think a lot of people thought that. But they were saying we had to get back on the field.

“That was obviously a weird moment for everybody.  I think it was pretty tense for those refs. They didn’t feel super-comfortable in there. But who knows, 30 years from now hopefully it’s a decent story to tell, but for now we’re 1-2 and we need to find a way to change that.”

The Packers will try to change that with a relatively healthy team. On Wednesday, there were just two additions to the injury report — RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) and DE Jerel Worthy (shoulder) — but both players were still limited participants in practice. The other limited participants were CB Davon House (shoulder), WR Greg Jennings (groin) and LB Jamari Lattimore (ankle).

The only player on the active roster who is listed as “did not participate” was S Sean Richardson (hamstring). Both TE Tom Crabtree (shoulder) and RB James Starks (toe) are listed on the report but were full participants.
