I didn't even know what icing the kicker was until I watched the second half of the Seahawks-Falcons game with some friends yesterday. But even a football idiot like me could see that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made a mistake by apparently calling for a time-out just as the kicker for Atlanta was about to make that game-turning 49-yard field goal attempt.

The time-out gave the Atlanta kicker a nice opportunity for a practice kick (he missed) and then an actual kick (he made it, and as a result the Falcons won the game).

And then Carroll tried to pretend like he didn't call for the time-out?

It's a situation that obviously requires the clarity of a Slog poll.
