RENTON, WA - JANUARY 12: Pete Carroll answers questions at a press conference announcing his hiring as the new head coach of the Seattle Seahawks on January 12, 2010 at the Seahawks training facility in Renton, Washington. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)

As the saying goes, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, the Seattle Seahawks must have felt like stars of the Twilight Zone. The Master of Suspense, Sir Alfred Hitchcock himself could not have crafted a suspenseful thriller such as the one that saw Aaron Rodgers and the Pack fall to rookie QB Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Pete Carroll is a master of the bizarre, but even he has to be standing in awe of the  storm brewing around his team.


Coach Carroll seems to lack the killer instinct needed to return the Seahawks to the level of success they enjoyed when Mike Holmgren was at the helm.… Read more

  • PETE IS A IMMATURE HEAD COACH ACTS LIKE HE IS IN COLLEGE, I WAS EMBARASSED BY HIS RUNNING DOWN THE FIELD AFTER THE T.D. CALL AT END OF PACKERS GAME. I MEAN PLEASE CAN YOU SEE A BILL BELICHEK OR A TOM COUGHLIN MAKING FOOLS OF THEMSELVES.
    PETE HAS BEEN FORTUNATE TO START OUT 2AND 1 HIS STARTING OF THE ROOKIE WILSON SHOWS PETE'S LIKES A BUTT KISSER AND WILL START HIM. THERE IS NO WAY YOU PAY GREENBAY WHAT YOU PAID THEM TO GET FLYNN,AND NOW HE IS BACKING UP A ROOKIE IT SHOULD BE THE OTHWER WAY AROUND AND WE WOULD BE 3/0. PETE CATCH A CLUE YOU WORK FOR PROBABLY ONE OF THE NICEST OWNERS IN FOOTBALL, DONT SCREW HIM WITH YOUR DUMB MOVES AND YES GET THE CHOMPING OF THE GUM AND THE RUNNING UP AND DOWN THE SIDELINES LIKE A KID WHO NEEDS RITILAN THE MEDICATION FOR A.D.D CHILDREN. GROW UP YOU GOT A GREAT DEFENSE AND A OFFENSE THAT CAN GET IT DONE WITH A LITTLE HELP.
  • Pete simply loves this game. I get his ability to release his innner little boy and to express his joy to both his players and seahawks fans alike. As to the double h's you referenced they are both the third best of either we have had. He has got his team now! And as one of the 12, we may not be killers but the last place you want to be is in our way. As for quarterback Baldwin played his way to a starting position, Flynn has the tools to be QB1 but he has been recovering from soreness in his throwing arm and is now ready if needed. As for our DEFENSE they eat red meat and their preference is quarterback. This is the TEAM I have been waiting for this a long time. GO!!! (wait for the echo) SEAHAWKS!!! (louder) then repeat. If you don't get what I am saying you just simply haven't a clue about catching lightning in a bottle which is what it takes to win it all.



















  • I have followed football my entire life and watched thousands of games at both the college level and pro level. Pete Carroll is an amazing coach and the Seahawks are lucky to have him! He is a great motivator and sports psychologist! You can tell he truly loves the game and his team and they love him! They are a family and he is like the dad but at the same time a very strict dad! The Seahawks will win the Super Bowl this year and probably the next 5 or 6 years and have a complete dynasty created here is Seattle! Anyone who does not believe me go ahead and bet against Seattle but as the year goes on you will Seattle keep winning and Wilson start to develop as quarterback and be a winner by the end of the first year. Even if Wison gets hurt they will still win the Super Bowl because Flynn is just as good or close to as good as Wilson! They will not be the best at the quarterback position but he has built the rest of the team so good that until the quarterbacks grow they will still be able to win enough games to get into the Super Bowl. I predict they will go 11 and 5 or 10 and 6 and win the division by 1 or 2 games! It should be a fun 10 years to be a Seahawk game and it sure is more fun than being a Cougar fan playing USC! Always liked Carroll and always will!! Gooooo Seahawks!
