Marshawn Lynch doesn't blame Carroll, Wilson for play call

By now, you've surely heard that the Seattle Seahawks lost the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots.

Why that happened has been the hot topic the day after, especially since the Seahawks didn't use all-world running back Marshawn Lynch at the 1-yard line on a second-and-goal play that ended up being a disaster.

Rather than run Beast Mode, their almost-always-unstoppable battering ram, the Seahawks called for a pass play that got intercepted, ending their repeat bid.

How could they?!


Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is getting ripped for the call and quarterback Russell Wilson is taking heat for the throw, but the one guy who isn't giving them any grief is the one many people thought was their best option.

Does Lynch blame them?

"No, because football is a team sport," he told the N.Y. Post.

That doesn't mean he wanted to chat, either. He kept up with his Super Bowl week style of skirting the media and not saying much.
