People's Poll. Was the decision to pass on the final play the worst play call in Super Bowl history?
I am not sure if it was the worst; yet it indeed, it was up towards the top of that category. If their coach had called for a run; I believe there would still be enough time for a pass on the next play (my God, there was plenty of time).
It truely was unbelieveable; especially, after since such an extraordinary catch in the play before to get the Sea Hawks so close. I must text, it was even more confounding since their fullback/Beast is so extraordinary.
Quite frankly, I don't care what the percentages have been historically for a pass vs. a run that close; it should have been planned as first a run then if necessary a pass... Perhaps to many CFL minds involved...
Plays like that make you wonder about the games being rigged to a certain point. Like a team being paid off to lose.
Sadly to say that crossed my mind too. However if I were in on the take they'd have to pay me millions to go down history for making the worst play call in front of the whole world. They could have done QB sneak!
I can't think of any other play that could top it for being the worst!
You're on the 1 yard line with running back who (runs through) people averaging over 4 yards per carry, you have one time out left, and the QB has the option to spike the ball if needed, and three opportunities to score the touch down. It would seem like a no brainer to try to run it in first!
Thank god I didn't have any money on Seattle to win the game.
I probably would have had a heart attack!
My guess is there are a lot of people who lost money on that play. Having said that if it were possible I would love to pencil these teams in for a rematch next year. All in all it was a fun game!
