“I don’t see anything wrong with it,” a Seahawks lineman told The MMQB. “Somebody’s gonna make money off of it, so why shouldn’t we?”
Let’s take a look at five events in sports over the last year more surprising than Beck’s shocking GRAMMYs Album of the Year win.
It was one of the greatest Super Bowl’s ever played. What went down on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona, had it’s share of surreal, spectacular and head-scratching moments.
Failure teaches us infinitely more than success does. And if Carroll wants more of the latter, he has to admit the former.
On Monday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa called the Seahawks’ decision to pass with the Super Bowl on the line “the single worst big-moment call in the history of sports.” Here are some other choices that stand out.
After dwelling on it for a couple of days, Boomer did his best to provide some clarity on “The Call,” which is sure to haunt Pete Carroll and the Seahawks for a very, very long time.
The Nielsen company said the game’s viewership exceeded the record of 112.2 million set last year, when Seattle beat Denver.
Carroll stood by the decision for Russell Wilson to throw from the New England 1 with 26 seconds left, a pass that was intended for Ricardo Lockette and intercepted by Malcolm Butler.
“That wasn’t a play that you can dissect in 10 or 20 different ways. That was the single worst big-moment call in the history of sports.”
At least one online gambling site isn’t totally enamored with Tom Brady winning his fifth Super Bowl ring.
Because they didn’t go into Beast Mode, the Seattle Seahawks found themselves in Spin Mode after losing Super Bowl XLIX.
We can now finally and forever say that Tom Brady broke through that historical membrane between three and four Lombardi Trophies, which just made him part of a most holy trinity of quarterbacks.
Instead of accepting defeat, the Seahawks tried to rush the line and get to the ball before Brady could take a knee, setting off pushing and shoving from both sides.
If it weren’t for the Seahawk’s ill-fated play call late in the fourth quarter, some would be calling this the worst decision in the history of the Super Bowl.
Domestic violence. Concussions. Retired players suffering. None of it gets washed away by a thoroughly enjoyable title game. Goodell and the owners need to understand that first.
And then they must deal with it, preferably before the next Super Bowl.
