Some Seahawks players openly questioned the pass that cost them the Super Bowl on Sunday, but one who didn’t — at least publicly — was the player that those others wanted to get the ball instead.

Marshawn Lynch did speak to reporters after Sunday’s game — at least, he talked to a couple, ESPN’s Jim Trotter and the NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala. Both asked Lynch if he was surprised if he didn’t get the ball at the 1-yard line.

Lynch’s response? No. Why not? Because football is a team sport, he said, not one to throw any of his teammates or coaches under the bus.

SO SHINY The scanners at Phoenix’s airport were tripped repeatedly by the hologram on the cover of the Super Bowl program, the Wall Street Journal reported.
