I’m sure that those who hate the Patriots will find a way to “prove” that they cheated. But really, if Seattle hadn’t made that bad play, we’d have lost. We were losing. Seattle, we couldn’t have done it without your help! You got a lot of ‘splainin’ to do when you get home!

As for Brady, it’s good to be the king.

  1. If the Pats hadn’t made mistakes, like their own interception at the goal line, it wouldn’t have been so close that Seattle would have had that last minute chance. Just the way the oblong ball bounces. But wow, from a miracle catch one minute to a great interception two plays later, what an ending!

    • You mean if the Seahawks hadn’t made mistakes … etc. Anyway, it’s not so much that the Pats won as Seattle lost. It got me thinking that everyone makes mistakes, but timing is critical. WHEN you make the mistakes really matters. That final intercepted pass on the 1 yard line (why did they pass … they HAD the game ????) was fatal for Seattle.

  2. Congratulations! It was a great game. I found I could watch the whole thing on NBC’s website. Go NBC! You couldn’t ask for a more competitive, exciting game than that!

    • It wasn’t the Pats finest performance, but they are a very well-trained team and were right there to grab the ball when they had the chance. I wouldn’t want to be Pat Carroll today.


      • It was a questionable call in that situation. I thought for sure we could have run the ball in with Lynch all fired up. Either way it was an idyllic game. A classic!


        • They should have given the ball to Lynch, absolutely. He had been highly effective during the rest of the game and defense is NOT the Patriot’s strong suit.


          • It was the defining play of the game. I’m sure the fans were both shocked and disappointed by the choice of plays. You could see the disgust on Brady’s face with the miraculous catch so close to the goal line. 99% of the time Seattle would have won the game because of it. It wasn’t meant to be.


    • So much is/will be written and said. The critics will continue screaming the Pats and Bellichick are spawns of the devil. But our nasty cold of bliblical length was frozen in time and space with that head scratching last minute goal line pass attempt. We smiled broadly and repeatedly croaked “Holy Crap!”.


      • It was a very unexpected victory. Welcome, but what a surprise!


      • It was mentioned during that game that the Seahawks are the most penalized team in professional football yet they played flawlessly yesterday. I’ve always loved the Patriots and Brady so there are no sour grapes here. The odds makers are usually right and called this matchup a tossup. That’s exactly how it played out. There are few Superbowls where two titans slug it out until the final whistle.


  3. There was no explanation for that play. What a disappointment to have victory within your grasp and then throw it all away!


    • That was the ONLY pass thrown on the 1 yard line IN THE ENTIRE SEASON BY ANY TEAM to be intercepted for the entire season. It was such a stupid, bad play … I mean, the Seahawks were outplaying us. We had mentally conceded … and then, they handed us the game. They really have a LOT of explaining to do.

    • Garry sat their shouting and clapping. We couldn’t believe it. We were sure we were going to lose. We WERE losing. That was some final amazing finale! What a game!


      • When Kearnes made that amazing catch on the 5-yeard line, despite the defense playing it perfectly, I figured it was all over then. And when Lynch got it to the one yard line at second down, I knew the Seahawks were going to steal the yet another Super Bowl from the Pats. But then a miracle happened.


        • It wasn’t the Pats’ greatest hour … but lucky for us, it also was a really weird play for the Seahawks. What were they thinking? They were the ONLY team to pass and be intercepted on the 1 yard line in any game played in professional football during the entire season. Like … NO ONE passes on the 1 yard line. Thank you Seattle!

          • No, and especially with the way Lynch had been running all over the Patriots all night long. I will never understand that play call, but I’m damn glad Pete Carroll made that call.


            • We had made peace with it not being our night. Apparently so had Brady who looked even more surprised than we felt. I doubt Pete Carroll really made that call. He’s covering for someone — which he should. It’s his job to take the heat. Garry says he is in no danger of losing his job because he has been turning the Seahawks into a Patriot-like football franchise/machine. Garry says this was the ONLY PASS thrown on the one yard line and intercepted by any team during the entire season. maybe that’s why they did it … because they assumed we wouldn’t expect it. Regardless, it was a bad decision for them, good for us.

              Maybe there’s a reason why no one else did it all year. Especially since it was first down. They had plenty of time to have one of the big guys push the ball into the end zone. An astonishing choice of plays with the whole season on the line.


            • I have no idea if it was Pete Carroll or the offensive coordinator who made the call, but they did take a timeout before running the play, which was on second down, by the way. But they were definitely in a position to run 3 more plays to try to get the ball in the end zone. No doubt, if they had given the ball to Lynch, they would have scored and won the game. Yes, it was an astonishing choice of plays.


              • They absolutely should have given the ball to Lynch. I am sure there will be lots more analysis, but most people think it was a foolish call when they had the game essentially in the bag. Why take a risk when you don’t need to? Especially against the Patriots who are nothing if not ready to take advantage of any opportunity. The Pats might not have had their best game, but their ‘not-best’ game is pretty damn good.
