Pete Carroll walks on the sunny side of the street, he’s sees the glass half full.   However, he is about to see half of his secondary get suspended for PED usage. The 6-5 Seahawks are in the hunt for the playoffs but a stinging loss to the Miami Dolphins set them back in the race. Furthermore, the news about Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner made the day that much harder. However, Carroll talked about the fourth quarter meltdown and as usual put a positive spin on the situation with 710 ESPN Seattle with Brock and Salk. “They got going and we had our chances to stop them. We had our chances to put the game [away], and we didn’t do that. … They went up and down the field. They had 200 yards at that 12-minute mark, and so we had done enough things to keep us in control of the game, but then when it came down to it, we gave them a lot of opportunities. Then we go back and have that ball on the 40-yard line … and we went backwards three plays in a row. … We had the game in hand on both sides of it, and weren’t able to finish.” “We made mistakes and we made enough errors on just fundamental stuff, letting the ball bounce around a couple times … and we weren’t as sharp as we have been and need to be. That’s a little bit of theme here for us. We have not been as sharp. We’re making mistakes that are killing us, and they’re just fundamental things. … It’s really frustrating. And, at times, it basically comes down to guys trying to do too much.” “They handled us inside pretty well. They did a nice job of just owning the line of scrimmage, inside out. Because of that, we couldn’t get started. This was the first time we really didn’t run the football. I felt like all other games, we found a running game enough. We found, for the most part, enough movement in there to get the thing going. … We can do better than that. … I felt like that was the difference for us in the game.” “We sat on the plane and everybody was pretty quiet, to tell you the truth. … We’re going to be fine. We’ve got a tremendous opportunity ahead of us. We’ve got a schedule that gives us a chance to do some really exciting things here as we finish. We have finished well in the past couple years; we’re anticipating that’s going to happen. … It’s so darn close.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
