Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch’s mom, Delisa, called offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell the “worst play-caller” ever, per ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia.
And, many would agree with Lynch’s mom that Bevell called the worst play ever when the Seahawks did not give the ball to Lynch in the last moments of Super Bowl XLIX. That ill-fated play resulted in a devastating ending for the Seahawks when Russell Wilson, who acted on Bevell’s call, threw the ball and was intercepted by New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.
Delisa didn’t just leave her feelings about Bevell at a few simple words. She had quite the mouthful to vent posting this epic rant on her Facebook page:
“Too the smart azz media who wrote that’s why marshawn didn’t get the ball in the superbowl ,how many times did russell get sacked yesterday. Dont worry i will wait on the answer plus it was totally different at the superbowl the line was better than yesterday no blocking and to the offense caller who should have been fired yes i said it Fired !!! He is the worst play-caller ever the only reason he called that dumb azz play yesterday is to be able to justify the 1 yard that wasn’t called in the superbowl ,but most fans already figured this out .were still on a mission but i know the Seahawks staff loves that play caller more than a win ,go figure #nfldontpayme# I love this team and will stand up to anybody who tries to destroy it boom!!!!”
Wow. If it makes Bevell feel any better, Delisa—shockingly—thought the coordinator made the correct call in giving Lynch the ball on a critical 4th-and-1 snap in the Seahawks’ overtime loss 34-31 to St. Louis Rams. Lynch fought hard but couldn’t pick up the first down.
While it’s easy enough to deal with one regular season loss, that Super Bowl disappointment is still a hard pill to swallow for many—especially Lynch’s mom, apparently.
