Last play of super bowl controversy


Recommended Posts

I just don't get that last play. I mean, as many times as I see the replays it just boggles my mind.

 

Of course I'm referring to the fact that there was no flag for offensive pass interference. I mean, you can't run a pick play with the game on the line and not expect the referees to throw a flag there.

 

(Yep, I'm not over FSU.)

and Lynch had run it 5 times inside the 1-yard line this year and had only scored once.

 

I'd like to say I would have run it there and make the Patriots try to beat my "best defense in the league" with 25 seconds.

 

I get Pete Carroll's reasoning. Wilson also didn't execute the play that well. Ball should have come out much earlier, IMO.

 

But above all else, Slater made a great read and play on that ball.

 

He EXECUTED better than the Seahawks did.

Not much controversy. Every one of the commenters said it was a terrible call. Pete Carroll said "“There’s really nobody to blame but me”, implying it was a mistake." The Seattle Times called it the worst call in Super Bowl history.

 

Of course, people here will argue for the wisdom of the call. LOL

 

BTW: Marshawn Lynch is the closest thing to Jim Brown I've ever seen.

It's only a bad call because it didn't work.

 

The reason it didn't work was because a defender made a great play.

 

Had the play worked, no one would be saying jack about not handing the ball off to the crotch grabber.

 

Personally, I think the offense and the play call are getting way too much blame in this situation. The defender made a play that not many would have made...

Malcolm Butler made the play. Undrafted rookie.

You play for the win. Giving the ball to Lynch on the next two-three plays would guarantee that. Especially, with having a timeout. They blew it. No question. Lynch will get one yard on three carries.

 

 

Frankus's, I've never seen Brown play, only on highlights. The same with Earl Campbell. Wouldn't Cambell be a better comparison?

No one? A lot of us would still be scratching our heads. BTW how do you know what everyone thinks? :angel:

they let clock run to "not score too soon"

and counted the chickens before they hatched by doing so

I would've ran Wilson out of the shotgun

or tried a sneak from under center then

still have had 30 or 40 seconds and with 1 timeout

could've tried at least 2 more plays, right?

1 run with lynch

only pass after you've used timeout

If the run the ball with Lynch 3 times from the 1 no one is questioning the call. I think that's the biggest difference.
