Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette says he cannot watch the Super Bowl play in which Malcolm Butler picked off a Russell Wilson pass at the one yard line. 

“I can’t watch the film,” the essay begins. “I absolutely can’t stand to see it. People have told me it was the perfect interception. People have told me there’s a camera angle where it looks like I’m about to walk right into the end zone. People have told me all sorts of things about the last play of Super Bowl XLIX. I wouldn’t know. Whenever it comes on, I turn away.”

“I see that ball coming, man. I’ll never stop seeing it,” he wrote. “The next thing I know, I’m on the turf on my knees. I’m looking around like, Okay, it’s incomplete? I look across to the Patriots’ sideline, and I see Tom Brady jumping up and down. And then I look across to our sideline and I see our guys with this blank look, with their heads dropped.

“I will never forget that pain. Never. We’re going to get back there,” Wilson told Lockette, “and if we’re in that same position again, I’m going to throw you the ball again. We’re going to get it done. I trust you.”
