Pete Carroll: Why Didn’t You Just Say That?

October 29, 2010

I was pretty skeptical when the Seahawks hired Pete Carroll as head coach, and as much as I enjoy watching his enthusiasm on the sidelines, the jury is still out for me on whether he’s gonna last long-term in Seattle. I want to like the guy, and I kinda do … but still just “kinda.”

And now I’ve read this NFL.com profile and it includes this little bit in the middle:

Still, Carroll is always looking to give them something more. He subscribes to the philosophy of the late John Wooden, the UCLA college basketball coaching legend who believed that creating the strongest internal competition possible was more important to success than preparing for what an opponent would do during a game.

He’s a John Wooden guy? Like me? Well, fer cryin’ out loud … why didn’t you just say that on the first day?
