An NFL confession has finally come out of the closet after 8 years, 8 months, and 9 days. The time when the Seattle Seahawks easily handed over the win day to the New England Patriots. The quick call made by the Seahawks’s main man Pete Carroll comes up quite often, typically during each Super Bowl victory miss ever since. Just a year prior, the Seahawks proved their strength in Super Bowl XLVIII boasted by their “12th man.”  They recorded the quickest touchdown in Super Bowl history by taking the lead 2-0 in just 12 seconds of play!

The camaraderie fell apart as a result of the team losing, which was directed toward their coach Carroll. When digital platforms made it possible for NFL Great Shannon Sharpe to host his weekly podcast, he turned to the Seahawks player who had strayed off the team.

Marshawn Lynch known by the moniker “Beast Mode” discussed the controversial match that took place at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 1, 2015. During his interview on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay show, which aired on Thursday, Lynch talked about his uncontrollable laughing in front of Pete Carroll after their loss. A clip was added on Instagram by the club and Sharpe’s account where Lynch said, “the play that ended the Seattle Seahawks most definitely and they suffering us from still to this day.”

During the 2015 Super Bowl, the Patriots seized a 28-24 lead due to a three-yard touchdown throw from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman. The Seahawks were at the 1-yard line and had a chance to win the game with just 26 seconds left. Lynch receiving the ball for the go-ahead run was widely anticipated. To everyone’s shock, a pass play was called in its place. Lynch remembers the astonishment and uncertainty that erupted in the huddle as his teammates expressed it with their facial expressions.

Russell Wilson, the Seahawks’ QB, threw to a wide receiver after the ball was snapped, but the throw was intercepted by Malcolm Butler, ending the game.  Lynch shared on the podcast, that after the finish he said, “I go right to Pete Carroll’s face, and I hit his ass with the biggest AHAHAHA. At that point, I go to the locker room, I’m out. I don’t wanna see none of the shit going on.” Sharpe was quick to ask about the momentary defense play by Beast Mode.

Lynch was questioned by Sharpe about why he believed the coaches did not instruct him to run the ball. After noting the defense play by fellow Wilson and Carrol, he went, “Man I have no idea, from the understanding I got nobody was taking accountability for it.” “You put that play together [in your head] so many times,” Lynch further added, “they take a moment they took a dream.”

At the 2013 SuperBowl, Lynch made it 15-0 with precisely 12 minutes left in the first half by scoring on a 1-yard run. He was trying to replicate history, something the offensive coordinator really missed, after having a key part in the last Super Bowl.
