Seattle lost cuz:
The coach went for it on 4th down instead of kicking a field goal early in the game.
Coach calling a crappy play that ended up with a sack and running out of time in the 1st half - when they coulda gotten another field goal.
Coach calling a timeout on the last-second Atlanta kick [it went wide-right], giving Atlanta another kick [it sailed thru the uprights].
Just sayin’ ...
I think it was a tie between Carroll and Fox for worst coaches of the weekend.
Atlanta scored more points.
Seattle area here - went to church this evening so as to watch the game this morning.
The preacher welcomed us and said something like,
“Welcome to worship, a time to fellowship with the Lord, and ask him the really big questions of life. Like why did the Seahawks have Marshan Lynch on the bench for 4th and 1? Why hire a field goal kicker if he doesn’t do any work? Etc.”
That time-out at the last second Atlanta kick is going to give the coach nightmares for ever. If ever you’d want to live a last second over -———————
WHY did Pete Carroll ask for a timeout when the kicker had already done his thing?
I'm no head coach in the NFL, but you NEVER give a kicker a second chance.
Stupid, and dangerous. Kickers "adjust" after an icing. And the Seahawks paid dearly.
