Seattle blows SB 49, 28-24.

Yes, as I mentioned before, I hate the Roman Numerals. And sorry, Patriots fans, but Seattle blew it more than the Patriots won it. I mean, 27 seconds left, you are one yard away from a SB winning touchdown and you have a beast in the backfield along the likes of a Jim Brown, Jim Taylor, Larry Csonka, Emmitt Smith, Franco Harris, John Riggins,…. you get the drift. And you THROW the ball? Really? The late Ohio State coach Woody Hayes said that three things can happen when you throw the ball, and two of them are bad. And one of the bad things happened. New England picked off the pass to preserve their 28-24 come from behind lead and win the game. The Patriots were down 24-14 at one point. But Marshawn Lynch is in your backfield, you have 2nd and goal from the one. There are three things you CANNOT do. Fumble the ball away is one, get picked off is another (the third is to get hit with a penalty, making Lynch’s job harder). But you have one of the best backs in the game, an absolute bruiser who, with 27 seconds left and your team still owning a couple of time outs, you don’t just give him the ball three times to get 36 inches? Really? The Seahawks benefitted just moments before from what looked at the time to be deja vu. David Tyree part 2 if you will. An unbelievable catch to set up Seattle to win the game in the closing seconds. Then Seattle just gave the game away. More games are lost by the losing team than won by the winners. Here is Case #1. Unbe-friggin-lievable. Pete Carroll and his offensive assistants, and some players, better buy a lot of Sominex, for there will be plenty of sleepless nights ahead. For Brady, his 3rd MVP, tying Montana. For Belichick, his 4th SB win, tying Chuck Noll. Brady ties Bradshaw with 4 SB wins. For Seattle, a whole offseason of wanting a do-over of the stupidest call in SB history.
