Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw an interception on the Seahawks’ final play of the game after head coach Pete Carroll decided to mysteriously not use running back Marshawn Lynch.
Patriots running back Shane Vereen admitted that the Seahawks probably would have won if Lynch ran.
“I think it’s a different game, I think it’s a different ending. When I was on the sideline, and I saw where they had the ball in that situation, we were trying to get some plays together for the offense to try and get at least a field goal to tie things up,” Vereen said to NFL.com.
Vereen’s rookie contract has expired, and he will be a free agent. Since the Patriots already have many talented running backs such as LeGarrette Blount on their roster, they may decide to part ways with Vereen.
His comments are sure to haunt the Seahawks and their fans even more, if that’s even possible.
