They won't have more chances probably, they might not keep lynch.

Just got out of class and I see the Dark Side has won. I guess 98% of America is disappointed tonight. But enough about that. The more important question is...How was Lenny Kravitz!?

The catch by Kearse was insane! That was lucky, and it should have been enough for Seattle. I'm not so harsh on the call at the end--a lot of folks were looking for the run up the gut, but the surprise tactic did not work this time. Patriots seemed to be the better team all game long, so, this miami fan must begrudgingly admit the better team won. What an exciting game though! Wow!!!!

Virgil Cane is the name ...

Just saw the half time show. Horrible. If that wasn't the worst lip sync show ever, I'll retire my tennis rackets and take up figure skating. They lured me in with the promise of Katy Perry and he was up there for what? 30 seconds? Entertainment in America is dying...

I am speechless folks. Nothing to say really, other than that they should have put the game away at 24-14 against an inferior team.

As for the end - there is nothing to say.

Absolutely right, I was thinking the same thing at the time.

Yeah, apparently you are allowed to grab a receiver's ankle and drag him to the ground when the ball is in the air.

The late-hit call on Thomas was also questionable, to put it mildly.

If you were going to throw it, throwing it over the middle was the worst possible location to go given that New England's defensive strength is their secondary.

Intense game. Crazy fourth quarter. I was rooting for the Pats I couldn't believe that fricken catch. I thought the game was lost.... anyone with a brain would have just sent Lynch to get it in the the end zone and win the championship. Couldn't believe the call and the subsequent interception.

RE: Super Bowl XLIX
Have to disagree Shawnbm, that playcall was inexcusable. There is absolutely no logical reason to throw a risky slant from the 1 yard line there. It is one of the dumbest plays in the history of sports given the stakes.

Seattle was a little unlucky with injuries, that was like their JV defense out there, definitely their worst game in a few years. But even still it came down to a ridiculous playcall and pure evil wins. Kind of ironic that some pretty awful coaching does Seattle in. They didn't learn too well from Green Bay...

Think about it, of all the teams , of all the coaches, against the Empire and the Emperor, why would Pete Carroll make a call like that, Its very obvious, The Fix was In ..

RE: Super Bowl XLIX
^ How does Seattle benefit from throwing the Super Bowl AP? All the players and coaches on the team are millionaires. Sometimes coaches do the dumbest damn things but I've seen it enough to not be too shocked by anything I see in the NFL. That said, the call last night was the dumbest thing I've ever seen in the NFL. Carroll and their OC are both taking "credit" for it but that's almost so bad that some heads have to roll. Obviously not Carroll's but I'd send the OC packing.

That's a big part of why the Pats are what they are...you never get the sense that their coaching would ever play a direct hand in their losses. Their coaching helps them win despite not having elite talent on that team. And powerhouses like Seattle and Green Bay were left thinking "WTF!!!" in their season ending losses.

I was saying during the game, Pete was the ultimate players' coach. However..That's was all on Pete Carroll not the OC. Pete is gonna loose that team.

As for the Fix.. I am not going to sit here and try to justify it. It is what it is.

RE: Super Bowl XLIX
I think it's on both Carroll and the OC Darell Bevell. Bevell probably made the call and Carroll OK'd it...that'd be my guess. Carroll is trying to shoulder all the blame, trying to deflect it from Bevell and I must say it's pretty admirable (and I'm not one to admire Carroll).

People are too into conspiracy theories these days. If it was a fixed game it'd be the refs making a bunch of terrible calls in one team's favor. In yesterday's game I counted one very bad call each way, the running into the kicker by Seattle should've been a personal foul and then in the 4th the Pats got away with pass interference on a big play before their game winning drive. If it was rigged there'd have been a lot of bad calls going against Seattle. Ultimately the players and coaches decided this game.

The thing about "conspiracies" is there lies quite a bit of truth.. I will leave it at that.

^ Some conspiracies are more likely to be real than others. This one isn't exactly "JFK"

Football players and coaches (who are often ex players) are not the brightest bulbs. They do some of the dumbest crap imaginable and that's what happened last night. In the NBA this would be like giving the ball to Luc Longley for the final shot on the perimeter instead of Jordan.

All Seattle had to do was stop New England on 3rd and 14 in the phourth quarter and the game was theirs. They couldn't do it and NE ended up scoring a TD. That series is what lost the game phor Seattle.

Praise Almighty God and the savior, Jesus Christ! Go Blue Jays, Seattle Seahawks, Portland Trailblazers, Indiana State Sycamores, Notre Dame Phighting Irish, Calgary Phlames! Ted Cruz 2016.

^ Like the Green Bay - Seattle game there were a bunch of things that all had to go wrong for the losing team to pull defeat from the jaws of victory. The Green Bay game was even more extreme but this Seattle one was quite the howler too. Kearse dropped a perfectly thrown ball late in the 3rd that would have put Seattle inside the NE 20. After that Seattle went too conservative the next couple possessions and then the last play takes the cake for worst of the year. Tough to swallow if you're a Hawks fan.
