McCarthy not buying challenge explanation

Posted by Mike Spofford on August 10, 2013 – 5:18 pm

He could smile and laugh about it because it was the preseason, but Mike McCarthy clearly wasn’t buying the explanation he got for why his challenge of a call at the goal line was overruled on Friday night.

On their first offensive drive of the night, the Packers went for it on fourth-and-goal at the 2-yard line and handed off to RB James Starks, who was tackled and ruled down at the 1. Trying to push through the pile, Starks appeared to reach the ball out across the goal line without his knee hitting the ground, so McCarthy challenged the play, only to see the call on the field upheld.

Asked for the explanation he got from referee Carl Cheffers, McCarthy obviously wasn’t satisfied.

“The ball was over the goal line. Carl said he could not see his knee,” McCarthy said. “His hip was three feet off the ground, so I couldn’t see his knee either.

“You can figure that out … at least three feet off the ground.”
