What REALLY pissed me off is after the call was upheld, we just went straight back to that exact same play twice. Johnson's an animal but when you know exactly what's coming and your QB isn't all that accurate to start with, I think we probably had some better options. It was like everyone on the Lions sideline said "FINE, FUCK IT" and decided to pocket the loss and go home.
Do I think the refs blew the interpretation of the rule? Sure. However, the Bears were all over Johnson after that, meaning we had opportunities elsewhere on the field. We still should have won the game anyway, but that one was our own fault.
