Two weeks ago, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll opened his day-after-game news conference lamenting a lost afternoon in Los Angeles that left the Seahawks not only beaten on the scoreboard but beaten up physically, ultimately concluding, “We have some work to do.’’
On Monday, in the wake of two double-digit wins since then, Carroll was upbeat enough to declare that the current edition could be, by the end of the season, the best Seattle team he has coached, including the 2013 squad that won the Super Bowl, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
“There’s a chance,” Carroll said. “There’s a chance. I think we have a chance to, because of the experience and great leadership that we have, the development and coming of age of the quarterback, we have our kicking game in order. There’s a lot of really good phases of our team that we can count on. We’re growing on offense up front with the guys up front on offense, they’re doing a good job and pass protection is a big deal to us right now and we’ll grow in the running game. I’ve loved this team all along, I’ve seen it coming. Just the way they’ve gone about the work. We have a chance to be really good.”
