Seahawks Lost the Super Bowl Because of Racism, Obviously

Leave it to The Nation to uncover the real reason that the Seattle Seahawks lost the Super Bowl in a crushing, heart-breaking, emotionally devastating last-minute decision that allowed the New England Patriots to intercept the ball and end the game: everyone, including Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, is a racist.

Apparently, a disgruntled anonymous source in the Seahawks locker room told The Nation‘s reporter (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) that the Seahawks were more interested in allowing Russell Wilson to come out of the game a hero than actually winning the game, a theory that doesn’t quite add up for reasons I’ll get to in a minute.

The Nation’s Dave Zirin (the same journalist who brought us the genius idea that not cheering for the Seattle Seahawks is racist) wrote a post-Super Bowl column attributing the Seattle Seahawks’ horrible decision to throw a pass on the one-yard line in the final seconds of the game was due to “the politics of race” and an anti-Marshawn Lynch conspiracy.

The theory, as relayed by Zirin, is that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll called a pass because he wanted the young, clean-cut quarterback Russell Wilson to be seen as the game-winner, not the renegade running back Marshawn Lynch. The only source for this theory is a disgruntled anonymous figure in the Seahawks locker room.

“Russell Wilson is your young clean-cut God-fearing media-perfect quarterback…” Zirin writes, “He’s Derek Jeter with a Bible, someone who comes across like he has never spoken out of turn in his entire life.

This doesn’t add up for a couple of reasons. Marshawn Lynch was already a key player in the game, and might have been named MVP had Pete Carroll not been so distracted by Katy Perry’s #LeftShark that he blew the last call. Russell Wilson threw a 60 yard pass that resulted in a miracle catch. No one in the real world thinks like this. And, to top it all off, Zirin’s theory rests on his assumption that Wilson is bi-racial, something that, as far as Wilson is aware, is not true, as he has two African-American parents. 

We may never know the real reason that the Seahawks offensive coaching staff chose to toss the football to an opposing defenseman rather than hand it to a man most people call #BeastMode, but I suspect The Nation isn’t likely to come up with the closest theory to the mark.
