A screenshot of the controversial "hail mary" in the Seahawks/Packers game

Wow. So for once while watching football, I wasn't the only one in the room who had no clue what was going on. Seattle Seahawks' 14-12 win over the Green Bay Packers has fueled what some predict will be a season-long debate (sure it will, at least until something else interesting happens).
