Seahawks' Lockette: I will never forget pain of SB XLIX

Share

The clip of Malcolm Butler's game-saving interception in Super Bowl XLIX is either awesome or anguishing, depending if you're a Patriots or Seahawks fan.

For Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, he can't stand to watch the film from Super Bowl XLIX, period.

Lockette details the gut-wrenching last seconds of the Seahawks' loss in an article called "The Pass," which appears on the Players' Tribune.

"I can’t watch the film. I absolutely can’t stand to see it," Lockette writes. "People have told me it was the perfect interception. People have told me there’s a camera angle where it looks like I’m about to walk right into the end zone. People have told me all sorts of things about the last play of Super Bowl XLIX. I wouldn’t know. Whenever it comes on, I turn away.

"I see that ball coming, man. I’ll never stop seeing it. The next thing I know, I’m on the turf on my knees. I’m looking around like, Okay, it’s incomplete? I look across to the Patriots’ sideline, and I see Tom Brady jumping up and down. And then I look across to our sideline and I see our guys with this blank look, with their heads dropped.

"I will never forget that pain. Never."

Lockette goes on to talk about his journey from the dirt roads of Georgia to the NFL and his relationship with quarterback Russell Wilson.
