Following Seattle’s overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, Delisa Lynch – mother of star running back Marshawn Lynch – spoke out against Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
The game’s definitive play saw Lynch take a handoff on 4th and 1 only to come up short. The playcall was a role reversal from the much-ballyhooed Super Bowl XLIX call, which culminated in Malcolm Butler’s game-sealing interception.
Of course, Sunday’s ending brought up some old memories with Ms. Lynch. She made her feelings evident on a Facebook post:
“Too the smart azz media who wrote that’s why marshawn didn’t get the ball in the superbowl ,how many times did russell get sacked yesterday. Dont worry i will wait on the answer plus it was totally different at the superbowl the line was better than yesterday no blocking and to the offense caller who should have been fired yes i said it Fired !!! He is the worst play-caller ever the only reason he called that dumb azz play yesterday is to be able to justify the 1 yard that wasn’t called in the superbowl ,but most fans already figured this out .were still on a mission but i know the Seahawks staff loves that play caller more than a win ,go figure #nfldontpayme# I love this team and will stand up to anybody who tries to destroy it boom!!!!”
Well, she brings up some fair points. Giving the ball to Lynch in that spot seemed a day late, and a dollar short.
Overall, the idea that everyone is all peachy keen after the Super Bowl debacle is simply crazy. Bevell and head coach Pete Carroll are definitely on a media/public hot seat with each coaching decision put under a microscope.
