Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll commented on his team’s controversial win Monday night. In Carroll’s book a win is a win, even if everyone else is the country is screaming otherwise. You have to love that he answers with a straight face, and he actually may believe the stuff he is spinning. Anyways, Carroll has the win against the Packers and he’s not going to let anybody talk him out of it. Carroll explained his stance on Brock and Salk on 710 ESPN in Seattle:

“I don’t care. I couldn’t care less about all that stuff. Game’s played, they called it. We played with the officials that they sent out there; we played with the team that they put out there. And at the end of it, we throw the ball up and Golden makes an extraordinary effort. It’s a great protection, it’s a great throw, it’s a great attempt at the ball, and he wins the battle. They were right on the point, looking right at it, standing right over the thing. And they reviewed it. Whether they missed the push or not, obviously they missed the push in there in the battle for the ball, but that stuff goes on all the time and they see it, they don’t see it. That happens with the official officials.”

“It was simultaneous when they got to the ground. There was a little bit of an edge for the DB up in the air, but it’s not over there. You’ve got to get to the ground and finish the catch. And when we finished the catch, we had the ball. And they had the ball, too. And so it’s simultaneous.”

“You have to complete the catch on the ground. It’s not over yet. This stuff happens. And by the time they got to the ground, the ball landed right in Golden’s chest, he’s got both arms on the football. … So that’s why they said simultaneous. Now, people don’t want to hear that but that’s what happened. The guy had the best shot at it up in the air, but they gotta finish it off. They hit the ground, the ball gets on the ground, it’s an incomplete pass. It’s not completed until they secure it on the ground, and we were in great shape for it. I don’t care if they don’t like it. … It’s hard for everybody to accept but that’s the way it is and I don’t care. We win.”
