The Seahawks were nice enough to make available the flip card for their game against the Packers on Monday night (we found it here). The card shows Tony Corrente as the referee scheduled to work this game. That is unofficial at this point, but assuming that holds for Monday night, here is some background: The Seahawks have a 9-1 record under Mike Holmgren when Corrente serves as referee. Holmgren was 0-2 in replay challenges in those games; opposing coaches were 0-3. Corrente’s crew has assessed 51 penalties against Seattle in those games, compared to 78 against the opponents. Corrente officiated the only Seahawks game under Holmgren in which zero penalties were assessed against Seattle; that game was a 29-3 victory over Dallas at Husky Stadium in December 2001.

This season, NFL coaches have challenged Corrente eight times, winning once. Corrente is the only referee this season who has not been challenged by the replay official in the final two minutes of a half. Corrente has assessed 11.7 penalties per game this season, slightly below the league average. More info here.

Corrente worked the Chicago-Green Bay game in Week One. Packers coach Mike McCarthy was 0-1 in replay challenges that day. Corrente assessed four penalties against the Bears (25 yards) and five against the Packers (45 yards).

    Ah yes.. Corrente.. aka the guy that should have been the ref for Super Bowl XL

  3. Does the flip card take into account players who are injured and not expected to play, or just IR guys? Flip card has GB’s N. Barnett @ Mike and M. Tauscher @ RT for the game. Pack’s website says Hodge to start for Barnett, and Mike McCarthy is reported saying he’s hopeful Tauscher could return sometime next week.
