Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports
Whether Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch should have touched the ball on the final play of the Super Bowl has been in question since the end of that game. As you know Marshawn is a quiet guy and has not spoken about it since...until now. While in Turkey to promote the game of football with DeAngelo Williams and Gary Barnidge, he finally talked about that play...

"I had no problem with the decision of the playcalling. I mean, you know ... I think it was more of a ... how do I say this? When you look at me, and you let me run that ball in ...

I mean, maybe it was a good thing that I didn't get the ball. I mean, you know, it cost us the Super Bowl. I mean, I have full ... I have full confidence in my teammates to execute that plan because we've done it so many more times. But would I love to had the ball in? Yes, I would have.

"But the game is over, and I am in Turkey."
