Pete Carroll, Seahawks Head Coach, Opens Up About Super Bowl XLIX Call

February 5, 2015 by T.I.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll opens up to Matt Lauer of NBC’s The Today Show and describes how he’s coping with the Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots. He’s faced a lot of criticism for his crucial call to pass instead of run Marshawn Lynch.

Trailing 28-24 and facing 2nd-and-goal from the Patriots’ 1-yard line in the final minute of the game, the Seahawks opted to throw the football instead of handing it off to running back Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch. Then an interception heard across the world. Donezo. Lights out. Game over.

“It was the worst result of a call ever.” Carroll says.

Have to give him props for shouldering the blame so gracefully. He’s a class act.
