My bad. That’s pretty much what Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said during the 20 minutes he took questions after his team’s 34-12 loss to Cincinnati. Carroll was not only talking about his team’s poor performance, but his curious choice of going for it on fourth-and-two from the 3-yard line with 14 seconds left. The Seahawks ran Marshawn Lynch up the middle...
SEATTLE - Pete Carroll wanted to punch it in. Kicking, after all, wasn't really competing. Not in this situation....
