While enjoying what is probably a routine post-victory meal at a Seattle steakhouse, Marshawn Lynch and his dinner party came to a realization. According to Yahoo! Sports, Lynch and his crew were surprised when a waitress put the TV on and showed replays of the now infamous Golden Tate touchdown “catch”. Reportedly, Lynch’s “eyes grew big and his jaw dropped low” as they were shown angle after angle of the controversial play.
It gets worse. As they all began to realize how lucky the Seahawks were to walk out of the stadium with a win, one person at the table allegedly said, “we didn’t win that game”. Nobody stepped in to disagree…not even Lynch himself. According to Michael Silver and Yahoo!, it even went as far as Lynch giving Packers fans on the street a quasi-apology for the game’s outcome!
By the time Lynch left the restaurant early Tuesday morning and, while waiting for his ride to arrive, reassured a group of Packers fans on Second Avenue almost apologetically that their team would bounce back from this bitter defeat.
Just another added wrinkle to add to what is sure to become one of the most infamous regular season NFL games in history. This however seems a bit far-fetched, perhaps some new found drama to add to the story. Who has the inside account from Lynch’s private dining room? Who was the witness that saw Lynch apologizing and sympathizing with Packers fans?

It was fourth and last chance, throw it up, and pray. I had all but turned the television off, exasperated at another chance for Seattle to make a statement on a national stage.I watched helplessly as Russell Wilson scrambled right, perform the five d's of dodge ball, dodge, duck, dip, dive, dodge, and throw a bomb to the back left corner of the end zone.Who would have known...
The Seattle Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers 14-12 Monday night, behind a lights-out first-half defensive effort and, oh, perhaps the most controversial ending in NFL history. A picture says 1,000 words.
Seattle Seahawks (2-1) at St. Louis Rams (1-2)
I love to exploit home/road discrepancies so the Seahawks are one of my favorite teams to bet. Since 2007, they are 29-14 ATS at home and 14-28 ATS on the road. Riding that trend is the reason why I’ve selected every Seahawks game correctly this year and for significant units as well. Going on the road to St. Louis this week, I plan...
I want to try and come up with a way to type up a story after what just happened but all I can come up with is this. That was the most pathetic display of football that anybody has had to witness.
I’m not just talking about that last play, that last drive was filled with terrible calls. From the roughing the passer call, to the pass interference call, to the couple...
Game calls by replacement officials are so bad that it is moving the betting line on NFL games, and on the odds teams will make the post season.
