    I am really growing to dislike Carroll. Anybody else catch this?

    What was he thinking, he was up 30 points in the 4th quarter.

    At that point the game is a scrimmage, may as well practice your trick plays to see if they work in a game.

    They're all getting paid, this isn't about sportsmanship, it's about doing your J-O-B.

    If this was children, then yes you teach sportsmanship, however he's preparing for the playoffs, so might was well treat it as a live practice.

    I don't mind.
    The Hawks have shown they can play with anyone.

    I bet he only did it to make the next opponent (or an opponent in the playoffs) have to game plan for it.

    He bascally said as much after the game. He said it was in their gameplan already. He apologized and said he should have called it off.

    I'd imagine it was part of their gameplan for that very reason. They wanted to give upcoming teams something to think about.

    I really dislike Pete Carroll...

    He cheated his way to a National Championship at USC, and bolted before he had to pay any consequences. Then he pulls this crap -- add to that his idiotic sideline antics...

    I cannot root for Seattle while he is the HC.

    Carroll is a dirtbag. The only reason he came back to the NFL is because he was about to go down hard at USC. He tuck tail and ran.

    He is also going to get his QB killed.

    Actually you don't want to do that and give teams a look at it on film.

    I like it. Kick 'em when they're down. Teach them to not get down. Win games, don't apologize. That NFCW is going to be fun for years to come with Harbaugh and Carroll and Jeff Fisher in it.

    He should have throttled it back so he didnt hurt the feelings of grown men that have the inability to do their job.

    im indifferent towards pete carroll (mainly cause texas beat usc in the national title in 05 so he is small pototatoes in my book) but i do like his ruthlessness on gameday. He's sorta like the black mamba of the NFL :O

    Throttled it back? This wasn't Seattle running it's regular offense. The Hawks ran a fake punt with a 30 point 4th qtr lead. This after repeatedly throwing the ball deep the week before while up 58-0. How can anyone possibly defend that?

    Carroll is nothing more than a classic bully: he can dish it out, but can't take it.

    It's a game, it's not war. You do your best to score points, they do their best to stop you. You don't have to defend doing what you're supposed to do.
