More breakdowns of the Seahawks’ fateful final play call

About 24 hours now since a play that will forever live in infamy for the Seahawks — and simply live on in NFL lore.

There’s going to be more breakdowns of this play than Seahawks’ fans will probably ever want to read.

But I thought I’d compile a few of the better ones on here, including a few or our own. …

  • Hard to beat these thoughts from Hugh Millen on what went wrong on the final play, including the role that Brandon Browner played in disrupting things.
  • Jayson Jenks notes that the play wasn’t necessarily that out-of-character for the Seahawks.
  • Here’s my review of what Pete Carroll said about the play today.
  • The New York Times writes that game theory says the call is defensible.
  • The Boston Globe with a look at the final drive from a Patriots’ perspective.
  • ESPN’s Stats and Info page breaks down the percentages of the play.
  • Grantland.com with an exhaustive review of the play, also making this conclusion: “In terms of one play swinging a team’s chances of winning the Super Bowl, the second-down interception was probably the most important in the history of the NFL.” Ouch.
  • Grantland also reviews how the Patriots were able to move the ball on the Seahawks — one thing  that may get lost here, though, is the impact the injuries had on the Seattle secondary.
  • And Grantland with a more whimsical look at the game.
  • The New York Times writes that game theory says the call is defensible.
  • Sort of crazy that New England’s comeback from 10 points down tied the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.
  • NFL.com’s Adam Schein with some more thoughts on it all.
