The last time the Seattle Seahawks were in a Super Bowl, there were plenty of controversial calls from officials that left a sour taste in their mouths as the Pittsburgh Steelers took home the Lombardi Trophy and earned the title of Super Bowl XL champions.
While the poor calls may still sting the fan base, the current roster of players have never experienced a Super Bowl and they are not worried about the referees making bad calls during the game.
“We are definitely not worried about referee issues,” Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor said while speaking to the media on Wednesday. “We just play ball. We don’t worry about referee issues.”
Chancellor adds that the Seahawks are just focused on sticking to their assignments and what they do best, in hopes of slowing down Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense and coming away with the win.
“You know, we just stick to what we do best, play our zone and man coverage. We’re very fundamentally sound. We have to teach fundamentals. That’s what you’re taught, fundamentals, as a kid. You do your fundamentals to the best of your abilities and everything will turn out alright.”
As running back Marshawn Lynch would say, “It’s all about that action, boss.”
