Alone with his thoughts, forced into coaching exile after being fired for the second time as an NFL head coach, Pete Carroll knew he had to get this right. One more misstep, and he knew he might never get another chance.
This was during Carroll's 10-month hiatus from football, a time when he questioned whether his unorthodox techniques might not be good enough. Long after Dan...
Pete Carroll hasn’t appeared to age much since he was fired by the New England Patriots in 1999.
His hair has a few more strands of white today than it did in the late 1990s, but the head coach was always prematurely gray. Carroll might look the same with the Seattle Seahawks as he did during his three years of disappointment with the Patriots, but the coach’s public persona...

Richard Sherman has quickly become one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL over the last three seasons, which is even more impressive, considering he’s only been playing the position for five seasons. But Sherman wasn’t always a standout in the defensive backfield.
Sherman was recruited to Stanford as a wide receiver and spent his first two seasons on the offensive side of the...

Champ Bailey is old school. Sharp, shrewd, subtle.
A decade younger, Richard Sherman is just as clever and calculating as his 35-year-old counterpart in Denver, devouring clues from endless hours on the football field and in the film room to dupe quarterbacks on game day.
What sets Seattle's superstar cornerback apart is that he's bigger and brasher than Bailey. He talks...

Today is the annual Super Bowl Media Day. You know how it works. The players get seated at podiums and are surrounded by a throng of media members trying to lob questions at them. Some of them are legitimate questions while others are totally ridiculous. It draws people from all over the world which makes it a neat event.
Yet, I think it is much closer to ridiculous than it is a...
