Seattle Seahawks 41, New Orleans Saints 36!
This is why Coach Wins Forever:
"One of the greatest lessons for us in sports is that it's about how you finish, and ain't about how you start," Carroll said. "As you look at our season, we're in the finish, now. This is finish time. And how are we doing?"
And Matt Hasselbeck on Pete:
"We were down 10-0 against the world champs, my third pass of the game was intercepted. It was not how you want to start a game. But that is one of Pete's messages. You can't win or lose the game in the first quarter. You have to win the fourth and a lot of the stuff he brought up this year has kind of come true."
The past two weeks, and Saturday in particular, have brought validation for what Carroll is selling.
"I know guys have bought in, because if you didn't buy in, you were gone," Hasselbeck said. "I think what makes it easy to buy in is it's legit. It's not just some rah-rah thing. In a crazy way, the way he (Carroll) explains stuff, it just seems to happen."
And this is called karma:
"Reggie Bush finished with five carries for 12 yards, caught five passes and did not play in the fourth quarter."
Fight On Seahawks!
