Super Bowl Ex-Licks — er, XLIX — essentially ended when the Seahawks coaching staff put a big ol’ F in WTF? by calling a pass at the one-yard line on second down with :20 on the clock. This might make some reasonable sense if you were, say, the Colts with Trent Richardson in the backfield, but Seattle’s roster includes some real quiet dude named Marshawn Lynch, who’d already racked up 102 yards on 24 carries. This was followed by an on-field brawl, which makes perfect sense since the Seahawks aren't really allowed to punch their head coach.
All of this came after a downfield catch the likes of which have burned the Pats before: an impossible grab by Jermaine Kearse that recalled memories of the Giants’ David Tyree’s glue-on-the-helmet reception in Super Bowl XLII.
Tom Brady and Bill Bellicheat now have four rings, Brady has the most Super Bowl TD throws in history, the seas boil with blood and the four horsemen are saddling up their flaming ponies.
And the commercials sucked, too.
The worst part of all this? It’s Groundhog Day, which means this post will keep repeating until Andie MacDowell sleeps over.
