View From the Top With the Seattle Seahawks winning big for the second straight week, everything is coming under a bit scrutiny. After handing the Buffalo Bills an ass-whuppin’ Coach Pete Carroll has come under an attack for calling a fake punt with the game already determined. To those who criticize: get over it. It was a great call, at the perfect time.  Let me ask you, when do you want to see a fake punt? And when else are the Seahawks going to practice it? Failing to gain a first down wouldn’t have cost Seattle anything but it would have shown if this action needed work. There are two views for Coach Carroll’s criticism.  The first is the whiny, poor-loser attitude where the Hawks are being accused of running up the score.  The second is the notion that the Coach has exposed too much of his tricks to future opponents. Answering the first attack, the last time I checked this isn’t Pop Warner or pee-wee football where every game ends in a tie and everyone is supposed to go home happy.
