Monday Nightmare: Megatron's last-minute fumble


Part of me believes we probably won't see a Monday Night Football game in Seattle for a long time. And then there is a part of me that wants every Monday night game to be played in Seattle. It is become one of those TV shows where you want to make sure you tune in until the very end because you never know what is going to happen.

I'm sure you've heard the news by now. The referees blew the call at the end of the game, which would have given the Lions one more chance for redemption. But given the history of the Lions, the referees probably spared them from further embarrassment. Who knows how Matthew Stafford would have found a way to lose this game.

At least now the Lions can look forward to an apology letter from the league about those final plays. Though that does lead me to one interesting question. Am I going to get a letter from the league, too? Here's the thing. The Lions lost the game. But all of those guys are still going to go on and collect their game checks. I might not get a share of the championship belt my buddies and I chipped in for a few years ago. (A belt you can find at Where is my apology letter, Dean?

But the Calvin Johnson was only one of many plays that might have doomed you on Monday night. The Seahawks defense rolled. But I know of some leagues that don't differentiate between scoring plays from the defense and offense. Russell Wilson fumbled twice. And really, the pick-six rule needs to happen. If your fumble or interception results in a touchdown, you need to lose six points, not two. Only fair, no? Plus there were a whole lot of underperformers on Sunday, too (looking at you Julio Jones, Jordan Matthews and Greg Olsen.)

This isn't for me to vent, however. This is for all of you. So please, tell me your #MondayNightmare (no "S" folks). You'll feel better when you share.

And finally. Look who finally won!

And if you follow me on Sundays, I'll quote "The Wolf" from "Pulp Fiction" and then it's game on! Although, it's tough to catch me on Facebook. Twitter is your go-to." Plus seriously people, I'm not taking your tweets after Midnight. I'm into the #HashtagWars via @Midnight. I've started to mute people who ask me questions at that time.
