Pete Carroll is becoming quite a mean coach with nice talk after the game. However, during the game he’s been ruthless as his Seahawks concluded their 2nd straight 50+ point performance in a row. We see nothing wrong with running plays that a team wants to practice, and if the other team takes exception, then stop the play. The Seahawks are humming to a sweet tune these days behind rookie signal caller Russell Wilson and they have taken the shackles off and let the kid just play. The results were back to back dominant performances that left a lot of fourth quarter time on the clock, thus Carroll did what he thought was best for his team.

  • LOL that just too funny. At the start of this season they were saying Pete Carroll didn't have the killer instinct. Well now that he has he gets bad press about it. Gosh what do you guys want?
  • Maybe Pete should seek a Pee Wee football coach some place around the Seattle area and have him teach him about etiquette of the game. It's happened twice this year. What goes around comes around. No Class Pete.
  • Can't stand the heat, stay outa the kitchen. Strike3 "YOUR OUT"
  • Really etiquette?........ those people that got there feelings hurt are grown men who get paid millions to play the game... why should carrol and the seahawks give up just because the other team decided to quit before the game was over
