Pete Carroll has always been known for his very positive attitude, but sometimes his positivity can be a bit of a stretch. On Monday, Carroll called into 710 AM in Seattle to chat about his 4-4 Seahawks and he proceeded to let the world know how his Seahawks are “so close” to 8-0.
“It’s so close. We’re so encouraged by where we are and what we’ve done,” Carroll said. “Look at these games. After eight games — we could easily be 8-0. We could be 8-0 right now. And I think — I hate to think of it this way — but if you go ahead and you look at us a year ahead from now, when these guys have been through all of this, then all of these edges that we need — these little edges that you need — if they fall in our favor then we have a great football team.”
We understand that the Seahawks’ four losses have been by seven points or less but, on the other side of the coin, their three wins have come by less than five points. We love the confidence, but in this case Pete may want to tone it down
