TESTIFY!

The 49th Superb Owl

It is always weird to watch a big game when you don’t have a dog in the fight. A couple of things stood out to me. The Seattle Seahawks used some imaginative play calling to take the lead at the half, and to lose the game in the fourth quarter. Coach Pete Carroll decided to go…MORE
