Yup! Don't have to look very far back to find evidence that the defense would have stopped Lynch. They stuffed him dead earlier in the game on a 4th & inches... A 4th & short at mid-field in a Super Bowl is a big deal, its a huge play that everyone is going absolutely balls out on... their coach put faith in the offense to get a few inches, and they failed.What is we would have stopped them anyway?
It's one of the perks that comes with the Pats being in and winning so many Super Bowls, it's become comical listening to people's best attempt to explain away the wins... it was annoying when they only had a couple, but now its just hilarious.. "Well, Seattle WOULD have won if they just ran Lynch at the end of the game instead of throwing a stupid interception!", or "Well, the Falcons WOULD have won if they just ran the ball in the 4th quarter instead of throwing it like idiots!", or "the Chiefs SHOULD have won, but the NFL called a bogus 3 yard offsides on Ford who wasn't even near the play!", or... or .... or....
they could spend an hour going down the list lol
