It wasn’t just fans who were left scratching their heads by the Seattle Seahawks’ decision to throw the ball on second and goal from the one yard line when they had the best running back in the game in the backfield, current and former NFL players got into the mix.
That was the dumbest play call in the HISTORY of NFL football.

One of the worst play calls in history of the Super Bowl. Give Marshawn Lynch the ball.

Still can't believe why you don't run the ball 3 times from the 1 with the best back in the league!!!
