    The NFL rules state that a practice field goal of the type performed with six seconds left is not allowed. But there is no specific remedy for just THAT.

    There are two remedies which could have been imposed.

    Unsportsmanlike conduct or delay of game within 2 min.

    Unsportsmanlike conduct recieves a 15 yard penalty.

    Delay of Game is 5 yards BUT inside of 2 min remaining in a half ten seconds is run off the clock which in the Sea/Atl would have ended the game.

    Yes Carroll was an idiot for calling his alleged time out. But with the whistle blown for the time out the other team, in this case Atlanta, cannot proceed to snap the ball and practice the field goal...which is exactly what they did. Cheating is unsportsmanlike conduct.

    The NFL has the authority to protest a game where unethical actions contribute directly or indirectly to the outcome.

    Carroll was a moron to call the TO. He is a bigger moron if he does not officially protest the FG practice as it directly contributed to the outcome.

    Seahawks looked great, very tough to win two games on the road in the Playoffs...

    I thought the Falcons where toast, great play by Ryan to pull it off...

    Pete has turned that franchise around, they have a bright future, we will see what the football gods have in store...

    Now my Texans at least showed up today, if they had only won one of their last three games they could be hosting the AFC Championship game next Sunday, oh well...

    Ya..I'm sure Atlanta's cheating at the end of the game made and lost some people millions of dollars. It wouldn't surprise me if the center, the holder and the kicker had "accidents".

    I'm sure Seattle would want a blown call reversed in the belief of fair play. ie Packer game.

    Go fuck yourself. The punk ass refs told both coaches before the game not to do practice field goals or they would be charged with a delay of game. Then Atlanta came out and did it anyway and the pussy refs didn't call it. Atlanta cheated..brole the rules...ignored specific referrie instruction and the fucking refs did nothing about it.

    Fuck Atlanta and fuck you asshole.

    All the respect I had for Seattle and their heroic comeback is lost as a bunch of whiny losers try to cover for a loss

    Makes you glad they didn't advance
