Stafford mic'ed up in loss, berates officials

The controversy surrounding a blown call that cost Detroit its season against Dallas on Sunday refuses to go away.

The controversy surrounding a blown call that cost Detroit its season against Dallas on Sunday refuses to go away.

On Wednesday, an NFL Films video featuring a mic'ed Matthew Stafford circulated the internet, in which the Lions quarterback can be heard channeling fans across the country as he confronted the officiating crew.

In the video, Stafford asked for an explanation of the overturned pass interference penalty, before saying, "I've never in history seen (a pass interference call) turned over. First time in history that's happened." He even congratulated the officials on the accomplishment.

As he stews on the sideline, Stafford hollers, "Hoooome cookin'!"

Incidentally, in his exchange with an official, Stafford was inaccurately told there was "no contact before the ball arrived." In some cultures, that's considered lying.
