Pete Carroll is becoming quite a mean coach with nice talk after the game. However, during the game he’s been ruthless as his Seahawks concluded their 2nd straight 50+ point performance in a row.
We see nothing wrong with running plays that a team wants to practice, and if the other team takes exception, then stop the play.
The Seahawks are humming to a sweet tune these days behind rookie signal caller Russell Wilson and they have taken the shackles off and let the kid just play.
The results were back to back dominant performances that left a lot of fourth quarter time on the clock, thus Carroll did what he thought was best for his team. Carroll had his special teams run a fake punt when the game was essentially over because they already had it in the game plan.
Carroll has taken a pedal to the metal approach, but don’t apologize, that’s the way the game should be played. Carroll spoke about it after the game:
"I feel bad about this," Carroll said after the Seahawks win against the Bills in Toronto. "It was part of our game plan. It was something I could have called off and didn't," according to ESPN News Services.
"It was an automatic for us," he said. "We looked for it every time we were going to punt, and it was just there."
"It's unfortunate that it comes across like there's something wrong there," he said. "That's my fault, totally, for not stopping it from happening."
