Must See: Controversial Play Call Produces Hilarious Super Bowl 49 Memes
BY: John “Hennry” Harris
New England Patriots are celebrating worldwide as they pulled off a 28-24 come from behind victory against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 49. The game featured the No. 1 AFC seed and the No. 1 NFC and the toe-to-toe action could not have been scripted any better .. unless you are a Seahawks fan.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 37-50 for 328 yards and 4 TDs, overcoming a pair of interceptions and his team being down in third quarter.
The night was playing out as if the Seahawks were a team of destiny to win after an incredible juggling catch by Jerome Kearse put the Seahawks in scoring position with a little over a minute to play. Marshawn Lynch, who finished with 102 yards on 24 carries and a TD, was thought to be a no-brainer for the go-ahead run for the win, with Seattle on the 1-yard line and :20 left, but the Seahawks did the unthinkable and called a questionable pass play.
Patriots corner Malcolm Butler intercepted the pass and preserved the New England’s win, earning the franchise’s 4th Super Bowl victory in the last 14 years.
The meme has become the perfect tool in this social media age to capture events, feelings, ideology and ratchetness.
Many of these memes surround Marshawn Lynch, whether its a play on his unique interviewing skills but more so the burning question of “Why didn’t the Seahawks give Beast Mode, the NFL’s leading touchdown-maker, the ball on the 1-yard line to win the game?”
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is not saved from the wrath of the meme as he has accepted the responsibility of making the controversial, highly questionable call to go for a pass on the 1.
Of course, Patriots head coach and his “dark” demeanor along with the “Golden Boy” Tom Brady catch it too!
