You know the pick I’m talking about. The one Badger great Russell Wilson fired to Malcolm Butler that for all intents and purposes ended the Super Bowl. This is supposedly Seahawks’ running back Marshawn Lynch’s reaction.
There’s not really much context there and why would a guy laugh at his own team’s demise?
Well, why does Marshawn Lynch do anything?
We’re sure he wanted the ball in that situation. All the armchair coaches wanted to give him the ball in that situation. So he probably thought it was funny that he didn’t get the ball in that situation.
And this was his way of expressing his displeasure. Or more accurately, saying, “See what happens when you don’t give me the ball at the 1, you stupid pricks?”
And listen, I thought about this too. Surely this clip must have been taken from a different point in the game.
I also found it interesting that if you watch that SoundFX video a little longer, you’ll hear Wilson begin to question the play call and then stop himself.
“Man, we should have… man.”
Oh well. The bad guys won, the worse guys lost and the good guys watched it at home on TV.
I can only imagine if we had been in that situation and McCarthy not calling a run to Lacy. It kind of hit home when Collinsworth said if you lose the game by giving the ball to Lynch 3 times on the 1 then so be it. I’ll never understand that play call but that was a thrilling Super Bowl.
Isn’t that why Carroll called the play that he did so Wilson would be the hero instead of Lynch? NFL and most of America want the pretty boys to get the hero worship. They also sell more insurance and pizza. “I’m here so I won’t get fined” Most honesty that has came out of the NFL in a long time. Go Pack Go!!!
You know how you when you tell a really tragic story, there’s some jacked-up dude that laughs about it?
The bad guys won, the worse guys lost….that about sums it up. I am still amazed at how emotionally invested I was in wanting Seattle to lose that game. I literally jumped up and cheered when Wilson threw that pick. I never react like that in games not involving the Pack. Man I hate the Seahawks.
I know there’s a LOT of attention given to the dumb play call and resulting interception, and rightfully so. To me, the next play, when the defense jumped offsides is also very telling about that team and how it’s coached. At that point there was at least some hope for Seattle to get the ball back and they managed to screw that up. Stööpid
the only thing worse than the way the packers lost the NFC championship game is the way the seahawks lost the superbowl. I was sick to my stomach about that NFC C game but i’d lose my mind if we did what the seahawks did (which rodgers wouldnt fuck that up so it’s moot).
I’m surpirsed that no one brought up the comparision to the 49ers ravens superbowl where, the 49ers passed 3 times from the 1 yard line even though they were a running team. Why go away from your identity?
SWOOP!!!!! Next year we will own the NFC! Mark it down! Too bad the Patriots won.
Boy I needed that laugh this week. Thanks for that you fucking clown’s ass.
Just like a bear fan…….NEXT YEAR!!…..lmao
Are you a closet Packer fan? Seriously you could not PAY ME to go on another teams fan site and talk shit.
Hey Sea-cocks fan, how’d that bit of karma taste you fuck? 2nd and Goal from the 1 and your shit for brains coach decides to let his overrated, middle of the road QB throw a slant…..GENIUS! We will welcome you to Lambeau and show you just what a healthy Aaron Rodgers and a lack of pumped in crowd noise does to your team.
That does bring up an interesting question. What would McCarthy have done? My money says it would’ve been a Kuhn handoff for zero yards and maybe a field goal after that, hope to recover the onside…
