In what was a battle until the end last night in Glendale, Arizona, Super Bowl XLIX certainly was entertaining regardless of your rooting interest.
Perhaps even more entertaining than the game itself last night was the reactions from those who know the game the best, the players.
Suggs was particularly outraged with the way that the game ended.
Football is simple made complicated by coaches!!!!!

Jeremy Zuttah didn’t think that the play call was such a good one either.
Dude carries people for 5 yards every play and don’t give him a chance…

Michael Campanaro had a one word reaction.

Justin Tucker and Torrey Smith weren’t as critical.
If that last play works you are a genius….if it doesn’t folks will drag your name through the mud — Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) February 2, 2015
Respect to Russell Wilson after a tough play at the end there. Staying calm & collected like that is incredibly hard. Real pro right there.

And here’s what a few former Ravens had to say about the incredible finish last night.
10 point lead and could not seal the deal. — Duane Starks (@DStarks22) February 2, 2015

Derrick Mason had the most humorous reaction from a former Raven:
Breaking news… Belichick used mind control on Bevell and made him call play. Seattle fans are livid and league is investigating Patriots. — Derrick Mason (@deemason85) February 2, 2015
And potential free agent wide receiver Torrey Smith summed it up best though for all the players and fans that were watching and no doubt feeling the same way.
Glad this is over….Back to work…last year sucked…Planning on playing February 7, 2016 in San Francisco…MOTIVATION!!
