Watch the DB over run that ball by 5 yards. He has his eyes on it the entire time but just keeps running and leaves DK wide open for the catch. My only explanation is that Wilson's moon ball is hard to track for players that haven't seen it before, like it looks like it will travel further and then just drops from the sky.
Nah after seeing Clinton-Dix freeze and gift Seattle a 2 pt conversion in the NFCCG, seeing Blair Walsh shank a 20 yard FG, seeing that DB not even try to contest that pass to DK Metcalf, and countless other plays over the years - there is no explanation. It's all luck, but at some point you have to say that somehow Seattle has acquired that luck because it just keeps happening.
What do you call it when you commit obvious pass interference but don't draw a flag, essentially gifting your team an undeserved SB berth?
Also luck?Similar to how an onside kick bouncing off of an opponents hands is pure luck and could also lead to an undeserved Super Bowl berth?
That GB TE screwed up. He was supposed to block and let Jordy catch the Onside kick. Luck? No, it was great Coaching by the Special Teams Coach who knew GB's tendencies, and a great onside kick by Hauschka who kicked the ball where it went 10 yards, but did not go directly to Jordy Nelson, thus causing the nearest, inexperienced player to try and make a play on it. It was also ST Coach Schneider putting the tall WR, Chris, in position to come down with the ball.
Like several here have said, luck is made by practice and hard work. The ST practiced, the throw by the punter to the Tackle Eligible had been practiced. Maybe the only bad luck were Russell's interceptions?
The Seahawks are 15 - 1 in single score games 2019 - 2020. That's not luck, that's Pete's Mantra over and over of "You can't win the game in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd quarter." AND a combination of Russell Wilson having the same kind of "Never Quit" philosophy. RW believes he's always going to win, and his fellow players believe in him. Not true with the other QBs in the league.
Now, take the Chargers on the other hand...they've been through 3 QBs, yet still manage to lose in the 4th quarter after big leads. What would you rather have? A big lead early, start coasting, then lose in the end? Or a strong team full of fight that can pull it out, no matter what?
(I think Anthony Lynn is a great guy, but he needs to go. After watching Hard Knocks, he's just too player friendly. Like Gus Bradley and Dan Quinn, a great coordinator, but not a HC.)
