    What he's done in Seattle has been really impressive. Not too many franchises can stay this consistently good for this long. Obviously the Patriots have done more, but it's pretty amazing how good the Seahawks have been seemingly every year he's been there, how successful they've been in close games, and how they are almost never blown out.

    Very true. I think it's overlooked a bit that Pete has done what few, if any coaches have ever done: win consistently at both college and pro for an extended time at each. When it's all said and done, the guy will go down as one of the greatest coaches of all-time.

    It helps tremendously having had Russell Wilson for much of that time. I can't think of many NFL coaches who were considered great that didn't also have great QBs under them.

    It would have helped the Rams if Belicheat and his Pats had won this game, but I can't pull for NE. Belicheat is undoubtedly a great coach - maybe the best - but he coaches the same way a General goes to war. Anything is fair game. His competitive instincts show no bounds for any rules or ethics. NE is the dirtiest sports organization in modern professional sports history. They make the Astros look like amateurs.

    Honest question, how does a festering S&C coach at SC get scooped up by Seattle and the team continues to thrive? What's the common denominator to SC's mediocrity...if not the S&C coach, not the ST's coach, the TE's coach, the DC etc.?

    Yes, how tough is it to have any success in the NFL...yet perennial success as Seattle has? And as for R. Wilson, took some big cajones to draft him in the 3rd Rd and stick w/ Wilson even after players like Sherman were speaking out against Wilson.

    And how about the secondary success PC has had, w/ all sorts of assorted players? The one thing that eluded him while at SC, is something he revolutionized in the NFL and many other teams have tried to emulate (Legion of Boom).

    Truly impressive!

    Pete Carroll is 3-1 vs Belichec. The one loss being the SB which I'm not normally one to think the patriots cheat, however rewatching the play their corner made his jump is unreal. The other factor the patriots have going in their favor is the AFC east consistently sucked during the Pats run, the same cannot be said for the NFC west. Very easy for the Pats to head into the playoffs with home field advantage, rest players, etc playing the Jets, Miami, and Bills (of old).

    Now if they can just figure out their pass rush. Two rookies yet to contribute (one hurt the other DNP) and Rasheem Green hurt.

    You also have to give him credit for drafting Wilson and immediately turning the position over to him.

    Russell was very lucky to be drafted and mentored by Pete. If you listen to him speak, his positivity and his energy is all PC. I don’t think he’d be this great if he ended up somewhere else.

    And I think it is that incredible energy and positivity that helps all QB’s thrive in his system, because the mental component is such a big part of the position. What Qb hasn’t thrived under PC?

    Two plays from a 3 Pete in College, 40+ game win streak and back to back Super Bowls. If he wasn’t getting f$&ked by the BCS in the “off years” the man would have played for an NCAA or NFL championship 7 times in a 10 year period. Definitely one of the greatest and we were so lucky to have him.
