Seattle_seahawks_introduce_55bf
Well, this was obviously a game scheduled for primetime with the presumption that Matt Flynn would be the Seahawks starting quarterback. Alas, crazy ol’ Pete Carroll made the daring decision to LET THE BEST PLAYER WIN during training camp and preseason. As a result, a great Russellmania began to run wild in the furthest reaches of the remote, remote northwest. It’s been going well, provided you don’t try to blitz the guy or anything. It will take a masterstroke of scab ref bumbling to top the horrorshow that was Sunday night, but I have faith. Imagine, if you will: Marshawn Lynch is called for defensive pass interference on a 3rd and 23, even though he’s on the sideline eating Skittles. Outraged, Carroll springs forth to the center of the field, where he begins gnawing an official’s arm in protest. The official flags Carroll, but calls the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the Packers coach. The benches clear and a lineman falls on Aaron Rodgers’ leg, shattering it and ending his...

Pete Carroll lacks the killer instinct needed

Even Pete Carroll Calls for Referee Lockout to End Just Moments After Benefiting From Awful Call

For at least one night, the NFL replacement officials made a winner out of Pete Caroll and the Seattle Seahawks. That doesn't mean Caroll doesn't think it's time for the new guys to go.

Pete Carroll's Resurgent Young Seahawks Rebuilt Around Best Secondary in Football

Football fans all around New England were laughing back in January of 2010 when Pete Carroll was named head coach of the Seahawks. Two seasons later, it turns out it wasn't such a bad move.

QBs in the spotlight as Seahawks host Packers

Matt Flynn came to Seattle to be the starting quarterback, optimistic he would be leading the Seahawks against his former team, the Green Bay Packers, in Week 3 of the season.

The NFL doesn’t care about ‘fan people’

What have we NFL fans learned over the past 72 hours? We’ve learned that once Golden Tate touches something, he owns it. (Word to Sean Lee.) We’ve learned that T.J. Lang ain’t never scared. We’ve learned, again, that Pete Carroll is indeed Mr. Brightside. We’ve learned that corporations are in fact people, and the NFL is a cold-blooded pimp. [...]

Monday Night Football: Breaking Down The Props, Packers at Seahawks

Monday Night Football tonight pits Green Bay and Seattle to cap Week 3. We all know what was supposed to be the storyline tonight, right?

Seahawks controversial win, slight revenge for the city

Golden Tate, Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks stole one from the Green Bay Packers. There is no disputing that, anyway you try to cut it. Seattle fans are not ignorant.

Josh Sitton: Golden Tate and Pete Carroll are completely full of crap (Audio)

There are a lot of livid people in Green Bay and beyond after Monday night’s debacle of an ending in Seattle, but very few are more upset over the series of events than Packers guard Josh Sitton.
