Seahawks: The lethally quick 11 zoom

Speed kills. That seems to be an organizational philosophy for the Seahawks. Year after year, Pete Carroll and John Schneider draft or sign players that are deemed undersized for their respective positions but make up for it with a surplus of speed, especially at wide receiver. This season Seattle will have a chance to put together a lethally quick personnel combination that I like...

Brandon Browner back with Seahawks but in a different role

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Brandon Browner is back with the Seattle Seahawks, wearing the same number as in the past, but playing a different position than when he became a founding member of the secondary known as the ''Legion of Boom.'' He's still a defensive back. But in this stint with Seattle, Browner has become a hybrid between a safety, a cornerback and a linebacker. ''His attitude...

Pete Carroll & the Seahawks Napoleon complex

The theory of the Napoleon Complex goes something like this. Someone who is relatively short (especially if they are bullied early on) may develop a sensitivity to their height. As a result, they could develop a chip on their shoulder and a need to prove themselves to their peers and critics. Pete Carroll can certainly understand. Speaking in an interview with team psychologist Dr...

Michael Bennett: Pete Carroll ‘understands the black athlete'

Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett made an interesting statement about head coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday morning, appearing on ESPN 710’s “Brock and Salt” show. He also made it clear he will show up for training camp, rather than holding out for the multi-term extension he’s seeking. Here’s what he had to say about Carroll, per Stephen Cohen of seattlepi...

Pete Carroll calls for more support for retiring NFL players

Pete Carroll compares Trevone Boykin to Russell Wilson

No pressure, kid. Trevone Boykin is in Seattle as an undrafted free agent participating in the Seahawks’ rookie mini-camp this weekend. And it didn’t take long for head coach Pete Carroll to lavish praise on him. But perhaps the loquacious coach spread it just a little too thick. You be the judge, as he compares Boykin to superstar Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson: “His...

Pete Carroll: Vernon Adams ‘plays much’ like Russell Wilson

The comparisons between Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and undrafted free agent Vernon Adams will be unavoidable, especially with Adams in Seahawks camp fighting to win a roster spot. Seattle head coach Pete Carroll made the correlation of quarterbacks during Friday’s start of rookie camp. “He plays much in the same kind of formula that Russell [Wilson] has played...

Pete Carroll says there’s nothing Russell Wilson can’t handle

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll clearly recognizes what a special player he has in Russell Wilson. But that doesn’t mean Carroll won’t challenge the quarterback to improve in certain areas. And the reason for that? Carroll knows there isn’t anything Wilson can’t handle. Carroll announced shortly after the Seahawks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Carolina...

Pete Carroll defends yet another controversial decision

For the second year in a row, Pete Carroll gets to spend the first day of his offseason defending an eyebrow-raising call. With the Seattle Seahawks facing 4th-and-5 at the Carolina 18 trailing 31-0 with 2:22 left in the first half, Carroll elected not to kick a field goal, choosing instead to go for it. The Seahawks were unable to convert, and some second-guessed the move, arguing...

Pete Carroll says USC reunion is “not happening”

With the Seahawks struggling at 2-4 and USC in the market for a new head coach, it’s not too surprising that rumors of Pete Carroll returning to coach the Trojans have cropped up.  A Carroll reunion with the Trojans seems very far-fetched, and today the 64-year-old squashed any notions of one when speaking with media in Seattle. “I love USC, its a great place. But that...
