Monday's night's amazing finish that gave the Seattle Seahawks a miraculous 14-12 victory over the Green Bay Packers inspired a storm of outraged tweets from NFL players, many directed at the replacement officials. Here's a sampling:
13th man beat us tonight.
Crazy last play @Seahawks win. Amazing game by D pass rush, special teams and heave by @dangeRusswilson and @Showtimetate catch! Wow.

Seattle u can't feel good about tht win... Because y'all really lost... The refs give y'all the game...

Players and coaches work to hard and have too much on the line to have games robbed from you by obvious blown calls! I feel sick for GB.
Wow. I don't even know what to say right now. One ref signals Touchback and the other ref signals Touchdown?!
It was a bad call but great effort by GTate!! Games over now can't do anything about it...GN tweeps.
This is what the NFL has come down to, &yet they tell you to respect the shield! Lol. But they'll try to fine us for everything thing we do.
Wow #REFS guess that's why you just bat the ball down. Smh
Refs single handedly blew this one...
Lost in all of this, why didn't Jennings knock it down instead of trying to intercept.
