Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett said that he would not change a thing about his performance after being asked about sliding after his interception.

The Green Bay Packers looked like they were well on their way to upsetting the Seattle Seahawks and heading to the Super Bowl as they led, 19-7, toward the end of the fourth quarter. However, they lost 28-22 in overtime.
Nobody would have expected a team to win after their quarterback threw four interceptions.
After Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw his fourth to Packers safety Morgan Burnett, Burnett made a mysterious decision to slide instead of attempting to return it and give the Packers better field position.
However, Burnett brushed off criticism of his questionable slide.
“I don’t take back anything I did. It’s easy to sit here after and say ‘we should have did this, we should have did that.’ If the outcome was different, we wouldn’t even be talking about it,” the Packers safety said to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The Packers offense proceeded to have a quick three-and-out before the Seahawks scored a momentum-changing touchdown. We will never know if Burnett running for it would have made a difference, but the criticism of him is sure to persist for a long time.
