Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez was one his best quarterbacks while at USC. However, Carroll warned Sanchez to stay another year, feeling he wasn’t ready and said so at Sanchez’s press conference to announce his entering the 2009 NFL Draft. Carroll is also grooming his own young quarterback in Russell Wilson, who is having some success leading the Seahawks to a 6-4 record. Carroll’s Seattle squad grounded the New York Jets 28-7 last Sunday, and he got to see first hand the three ring circus of Ryan, Sanchez and Tebow. Carroll spoke to 710 ESPN in Seattle with Brock and Salk about is observation of what the New York situation looks like to him. “I think he (Mark Sanchez) is in a very difficult situation and the whole emphasis of the two quarterbacks thing is really hard. You saw [Sunday] it didn’t get very much for them. It’s gotta be a little bit more disruptive, but I feel for him. I think Tim Tebow is an extraordinary defender and player and professional athlete, but this whole factor has been really hard on him. I’m sure it’s been really confusing to their fans and that park, at home, has to be really hard on him, too. I know I haven’t seen a game there, but I can tell what is happening. I think they are hard on him at the stadium, so that’s as hard as it’s going to get.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
