Malcolm Butler’s Interception In Super Bowl 49 Two Years Ago Still Haunts The Seahawks


Apparently when Malcolm Butler made the game saving interception for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 49 two years ago, it broke the back of the Seattle Seahawks. It was a devastating and controversial loss because many on the team were upset that Pete Carroll decided to pass the ball instead of running it with Marshawn Lynch, arguably the best back in the league that year. And according to a story written by ESPN senior writer Seth Wickersham the effects of this interception still lingers in the locker-room of the Seahawks. And the player taking it the worse appears to be the Seahawks All-Pro cornerback, Richard Sherman.

Let’s see what Twitter thinks about this Seahawks elongated Super Bowl loss hangover.


Looks like Sherman's teammate, Michael Bennett, says there is no truth to this story. Either way it apparently looks like there is a little animosity on the ranch in Seattle. And whether or not it stems from Malcolm Butler's interception remains to be seen.
