Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll talked about the recent rash of incidents that has upset the balance of his team.
The Seahawks were becoming a role model franchise with innovative views on personnel, and the nurturing environment that seemed to mold players into do the right things.
However, lately the up and coming Seahawks have struggles with performance enhancing drug violations, DUI’s, and the mystery of Marshawn Lynch who is the only player missing from offseason training activities.
“Unfortunately if you go wrong, you get popped and that’s how this thing works, and I’m really disappointed that we have to deal with anything like this. But there are going to be other issues too, and we have to deal with them,” Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of Profootballtalk.com.
“We have people on staff that are here specifically to work with our individual guys because I really see this as an individual challenge. We try to bring each kid as far along as we possibly can to make them available for the opportunity that they have,” Carroll said.
The team made an example of backup quarterback Josh Portis who was arrested May 5th for DUI, and was released earlier today. However, there is a lot of work to straighten things out, but Carroll said they will get there.
“We have to figure this out and try to help through education and through all of the ways we can, and we’ll always compete to find more creative ways to make the message clear,” Carroll said.
