The coin flip ended up heads, in the Seahawks' favor, but many people questioned if Smith actually called tails.
Smith poked fun at the online debate in a tweet Tuesday:
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was even asked about the call at his Tuesday press conference:
"It didn't sound like heads when you watch the TV copy. Both the official and Richard [Sherman], they didn't have anything (to say). Richard would've griped, I would think. He would for sure if he heard something different than what happened. I'm going with that more than anything," Carroll said.
Even though the Seahawks won the toss and received the ball, their opening drive ended in a Russell Wilson interception in the red zone.
The 49ers had two drives in overtime before Jason Myers eventually kicked a game-winning 42-yard field goal to give the Seahawks a win.
The Seahawks are now 2-0 in overtime games this season.
