Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was upset with the coin flip

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who had sent the game to OT with a 41-yard Hail Mary TD pass moments before, sounded annoyed by the snafu after the game, calling it “a debacle.’’

“He was showing heads, so I called tails, and it didn’t flip. It just tossed up in the air and did not turn over at all. It landed in the ground. So we obviously thought that was not right. He picked the coin up and flipped it to tails, and then he flipped it without giving me a chance to make a recall there. It was confusing. I think he was trying to avoid the embarrassment of what just happened. He flipped it quickly.”

The Packers seem to always be a part of some wild reffing mistakes.  The Fail Mary, the Dez Bryant catch/no catch and now the CoinGate.  It seems like the Packers fans have had their fair share of wins while others suffered, but I want to know your opinion. Do you think they did it right?
