Oh please, someone tell me. Pah-leeeez…..
For those who watched Super Bowl 2015 to the end, you would have seen an unbelievable fluke, lucky, "pre-destined" lol catch by the the Seahawks with just seconds left. You have to see that play to believe it actually happened.
Subsequently, the Seahawks were down 28-24 and got the ball down to within 1/2 yard of the Patriot's goal line. A TD and they win the Super Bowl. Lynch is the Seahawks work horse. He was healthy and was rarely stuffed throughout the game. He continually made 2, 3 or 4+ yard gains.
Why? WHY WHY WHY did the Seahawks not hand the ball off to him to make the 1/2 yard? Yes, the entire Patriot's D would have known but surprising the D would not be the intent. It would have been about brute force and power against brute force and power . Lynch against the 6+ guys who would be attempting to bring him down. I believe Lynch would have won that battle as he is so powerful he can carry guys for an additional 3 or 4 yards before they can bring him down.
Is there no such thing as a quarterback sneak in the NFL? We've seen in the CFL 3rd and one converted to 1st downs frequently. 3rd and goal have been converted to TDs. Could Wilson not have taken the ball and kept it himself? I simply do not understand why this call was made. I will never understand!
If Seattle had lost by running out of downs fair enough but to lose the way the team lost, no words can describe it.
