Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has had to answer questions after shoving offensive line coach Tom Cable in a heated sideline exchange during the Seattle’s 24-7 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.
During the 2nd quarter, and with Seattle trailing 7-0, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that he instructed Cable to talk to Seattle’s offense on the sideline after it came off the field but Baldwin didn’t want Cable doing the talking, he wanted quarterback Russell Wilson doing it.
On television, it showed Baldwin pushing Cable away and yelling at Russell while teammates surrounded them.
Baldwin said he apologized to Cable and the two were seen talking later in the game and at one point, Cable had his arm around Baldwin was they talked.
“I lost my cool. It’s 100 percent my fault,” Baldwin said about the incident.
“At that moment, I was really frustrated with the offense as a whole. Not the coaching staff — the players. Again, it goes back to our X’s and O’s. We had the playcalls. We just didn’t execute. Whether it was passing the ball, blocking, catching, jumping offsides, false starting, whatever it may be, we weren’t executing as players, and to me there is nothing a coach can say. We have to take accountability for that.”
Baldwin stated he wasn’t going after Cable.
“Y’all know I love Cable to death,” Baldwin stated. “Me and Cable have one of the best relationships from coach to player. That was 100 percent my fault. I already apologized to him. He knows how I am. It’s just at that moment, the players needed to realize it’s the players — it’s not the coaches.”

Worst Call In Playoff History
On January 20th 2019, the New Orleans Saints hosted the Los Angeles Rams for the NFC Championship game. The Saints entered the game as the favorite. The electrifying game kept fans and analyst on the edge of there seats. Drew Brees and Jared Goff both performed at with top-notch talent.
The Rams defeated the Saints in overtime 26-23 with a 57-yard field goal from Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein. The real issue in the game was the missed pass interference call in the 4th quarter. The call was missed which resulted with the Saints not getting better field position and an automatic first down. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the NFL officials told him they “blew the call”. This blown call will go down in history as one of the worst calls in playoff history.
