RENTON – As Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell spoke with reporters shortly after the Super Bowl and explained what happened on Seattle’s decisive interception, he made two brief mentions of how he felt Ricardo Lockette could have made a stronger play on the ball.

Bevell didn’t mention Lockette by name nor was his criticism all that strong, but it nonetheless didn’t sit well with another Seahawks wide receiver, Doug Baldwin.

Execution the other half of Seahawks’ final Super Bowl play

“I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bother us,” Baldwin said Tuesday as a handful of Seahawks spoke with reporters after the team’s final meeting. “He’s the 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 the reality of it, it’s in the heat of the moment, right after the game. People may say things or do things that they would 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, we’re going to move forward, so none of that matters now.”

Lockette was not in Seattle’s locker room on Tuesday while it was open to the media.
