Failure teaches us infinitely more than success does. And if Carroll wants more of the latter, he has to admit the former.
Carroll stood by the decision for Russell Wilson to throw from the New England 1 with 26 seconds left, a pass that was intended for Ricardo Lockette and intercepted by Malcolm Butler.
Because they didn’t go into Beast Mode, the Seattle Seahawks found themselves in Spin Mode after losing Super Bowl XLIX.
All Super Bowls need a gridiron narrative, and this one has a few. We have the Patriots’ pyrotechnic offense against Seattle’s wrecking ball defense, red zone efficiency, turnovers, and New England’s quest to stop Marshawn Lynch.
If the Patriots can put the hangover of this scandal behind them, this could actually be one of the most memorable Super Bowls of them all.
Yes, it is a cliche, but the game is never over until it’s actually over as Seattle comes from behind to advance to the Super Bowl.
There is a lot to look forward to when Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks, the defending champions, take on Brady’s New England Patriots, the dominant franchise of the 2000s, in the Super Bowl.
How can the Seahawks win their second straight Lombardi Trophy? The same way they did last season.
Can you imagine Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall or Carl Banks being part of a New York Giants’ defense that gave up 350 yards rushing? Strangely enough, the porous Giants’ defense has largely avoided scrutiny this season, but maybe after the Seattle Seahawks plowed to a 38-17 victory at CenturyLink Field that will change.
The New York Giants (3-5) will limp across country, literally and figuratively, to face the defending world champion Seattle Seahawks (5-3) at CenturyLink Field. The Giants lost their third game in a row 40-24 at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, while the Seahawks held off the Oakland Raiders by a closer than expected 30-24 score.
Percy Harvin says the Jets won’t be making him available to the media until later in the week, when he’s sure to face a whole new round of questions about his departure from Seattle.
Russell Wilson, Jermaine Kearse, and the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks overcame 10 penalties to beat the Washington Redskins.
It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
