T.J. Lang, Josh Sitton lash out at NFL, refs on Twitter after Packers loss

Monday night featured some serious drama at the end of the Packers-Seahawks game. And that drama was a serious disaster for the replacement refs, as the final touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate never should have happened; it was actually an interception by M.D. Jennings.

But it did happen, and that made many players on the Packers angry. Angry enough to lash out via Twitter. First up is T.J. Lang, who might be hearing from the league on this one. (Note that we retweeted a lot of these from the @EyeOnNFL account for purposes of embedding and also keeping them safe for work. There were no asterisks in the original tweets.)

Along with Lang is fellow lineman Josh Sitton. (Note to Packers offensive linemen: This would have never happened if you hadn't spent the whole first half tweeting instead of blocking for Aaron Rodgers.)

So, yeah, Sitton's probably getting fined. And so is Lang. But at least the latter doesn't appear to care what the league does to him.

And the former isn't so much worried about fines as he is the NFL coming to Green Bay and apologizing.

Speaking of apologizing, if you're a member of the Seahawks and you're OK with picking up a win on Monday, you should also apologize, because Sitton thinks you have no integrity.

These guys weren't the only ones, as plenty of folks like Greg Jennings and a number of different Green Bay players decided to take shots at the refs. Some of them were funny, some were vulgar and a few will get players fined.

But nothing about what they can say -- or what the NFL can do -- is going to give the Packers the win they deserved.
