After an interception ended the Seattle Seahawks’ hopes of repeating as Super Bowl champions, head coach Pete Carroll admitted that the worst result occurred.
Pete Carroll is still enduring heavy criticism from both the media and Seahawks fans, with the Seattle Seahawks head coach responsible for the decision to pass at the goal line in the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks were trailing by four points with 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter, and they were at the one-yard line.
Running back Marshawn Lynch was inexplicably left out of the final play, with quarterback Russell Wilson attempting a pass to wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. The ball was intercepted, and the Patriots went on to win the game.
Even Carroll himself admitted that he made a mistake, and took full responsibility for the loss.
“It was the worst result of a call ever. The call would have been a great one if we catch it. It would have been just fine, and nobody would have thought twice about it,” the Seahawks head coach said on The Today Show.
Carroll also admitted to crying about the heartbreaking loss on Tuesday morning. He will look to get the Seahawks back on track as quickly as possible, as they will no doubt be Super Bowl contenders for years to come.
