Penalties, penalties, more penalties continue to irk Pete Carroll

There isn’t much left for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to do but to start pulling players out of the game who commit too many avoidable penalties. Carroll’s frustration with his team’s penalty woes was at a season-high after Sunday’s 23-17 loss to the Redskins. Seattle committed nine penalties in the game — right around their season average — for 91 yards, and once more...

Video: Redskins and Seahawks get chippy throughout an ugly game

SEATTLE, Wash. -- The Washington Redskins' 23-17 Sunday afternoon win over the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field was nobody's Game of the Century — Rex Grossman managed to put some serious dents in an unusually passive Seattle pass rush for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

Audition time as disappointing Eagles face Seattle

When Pete Carroll was in the midst of his championship run at USC, he knew the Trojans would play a nearly perfect game and it still wouldn't be enough to win.

What happened with Seahawks-Redskins coin toss skirmish?

If he knew what caused it, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll certainly wasn’t saying. But for whatever reason, Michael Robinson and DeAngelo Hall were at the center of a minor skirmish preceding the coin toss prior to Washington’s 23-17 win over the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. “It came from them. I don’t know why they were doing that,” Carroll said. “You have to...

Injuries put end to promising season for Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice

Pete Carroll ‘not surprised’ by Cable head coaching rumors

It’s that time of year again, when colleges start firing their football coaches and folks begin wondering aloud who’s going to replace all of them. Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable has already come up in discussions about a Pac-12 head coaching job. Steve Corkran, who covers the Oakland Raiders for the Contra Costa Times, tweeted that Cable’s name is being “bandied...

A look at Sidney Rice’s injury-plagued season

The Seahawks lost one of their best playmakers for the season when coach Pete Carroll announced that receiver Sidney Rice would be placed on injured reserve this week due to a concussion.
