I don't disagree with any of that. However, they mentioned on the broadcast that he was getting an earful from the special teams coach, and that makes a lot more sense now that we know he was supposed to be blocking. If you're going to freelance, you better damn sure make the play.
GB had to do a lot to lose that game, but that play stands out to me because it's when I personally switched from thinking "Packers are making this a little too interesting" to "goddamn, Seattle is gonna with this game".
One thing I thought was odd (that isn't seeming to get much press) was the GB DB sliding after the interception with ~5:00 left. I get wanting to protect the ball, but it didn't seem like anyone was near him. Would have been easy to gain a fair amount of yardage there. Of course, they were up two scores at the time.

Do a lot of people really hate Lynch, though?
Which reminds me (since Lynch had the cleat scandal this weekend) - how is it not a uniform violation for Brady to wear what appears to be leg warmers???
