On Tuesday, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin addressed a comment made by offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell about how he felt receiver Ricardo Lockette could've done a better job at staying strong on the final interception of Super Bowl XLIX.

Lockette was the intended receiver on the one-yard pass attempt by Russell Wilson that was picked off by the Patriots' Malcolm Butler, sealing the win for New England.

"I would be lying if I said it didn’t bother us [receivers]," Baldwin said of Bevell's comment. "He’s a coach and so you take that criticism or whatnot and you look in the mirror and figure out what you could have done with it. It’s harsh. But in the reality of it, it’s in the heat of the moment right after the game, people may say things or do things they may have changed or would like to be interpreted differently. However at the end of the day, like I said, we’re going to stick together and move forward so none of that matters now."

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll accepted blame for the play call after the game, and Wilson said he thought it was a good call
