If you watched the final minutes of Super Bowl XLIX, notably Seattle’s final drive, you probably share the same thoughts as many who viewed it: What the hell were they thinking?
Co-star of the CBS hit show Mike & Molly, Billy Gardell, shared those same opinions when he called into Scott Shannon in the Morning today.
“Well, what happened is, I think Pete Carroll became New England’s MVP. It might have been the absolute dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Gardell says of what became Seattle’s final play call near the goal line, resulting in New England’s 28-24 win and fourth Super Bowl victory with quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick. “I’ve watched thousands of football games; I’ve never seen anything that stupid. EVER!”
While Seattle head coach Pete Carroll has been accepting the bulk of the blame for the blunder, fingers for the gaff have also been pointed toward offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and even quarterback Russell Wilson.
In addition to offering some popular football insight, Gardell also has a new gig as host of Monopoly Millionaires’ Club, a game show based on the popular board game, Monopoly. Listen to the interview below for more details and tune into the 100th episode of Mike & Molly tonight at 8:30PM on CBS 2!
