Darrell Bevell Super Bowl play call
Darrell Bevell Super Bowl play call cost the championship for the Seahawks at Super Bowl 49 against the New England Patriots. The call that Darrell Bevell made to Wilson helmet and that Pete Carroll approved was a skinny post out of a two-receiver stack from the right flank, it was a great call but it didn’t come out with the results they’ll hope for when Malcolm Butler intercepted Ricardo Lockette’s attempt to catch the winning touchdown pass.
When the media approached Coach Bevell he said.
Have you watched the play with Russell Wilson, to see what went wrong, to see if he might have done anything different?
“Have I ever watched it with him?” Bevell said. “No, I mean I don’t think we need to watch it, we’ve talked about it because it’s so vivid in his mind and so vivid in my mind.”
How did it feel to be such a punching bag nationally?
“I worry about my family, my girls, my wife, I worry about those people more than I do myself. I understand what comes with the job we do and they [the family] understand what comes with it. That doesn’t make it any easier, but once I knew all the stuff around it, why we did it and everything that happened, I was able to move on with it.”
Are you over it yet?
“It’s never going to leave you. I can think back to when I was playing quarterback and there are plays that still eat me in my gut from when I was playing. The ones that usually eat you are the bad plays, not the Big Ten Championships. It’s those other plays that you think back to that eat you in the gut.
“That play we called will always be there to drive me. I wouldn’t change it, I think it was the right thing. Coach Carroll has done a great job with it as well. I think to answer your question, in terms of totally moving on, that night is rough, the next morning is rough, getting on the plane is rough, but as soon as I got here and I was able to watch it for myself on the tape and see our copy and look at it that way and do the analyzing of it, once that was over I was able to put it behind me. I’m okay. I really am.”
