Pete Carroll has been at a number different stops during his rise up the coaching ranks. It all started at Iowa State back in 1978 and he’s been a part of 11 different teams along the way. We all respect Carroll for the Super Bowl victory he achieved in 2012 however this current coaching job might be the best he’s ever done in his four decade journey. Seattle had a max exodus of talent which included the losses of Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Graham, Kam Chancellor, and Cliff Avril. Pete Carroll turned the page on all of those stars by doing what’s he done for most of his career. Which is relying on his system to develop players and focusing most of his efforts on building a positive culture. There’s no doubt Carroll has optimized his approach over the years and he’s such a great teacher. By putting smarter teams on the field he’s able to cut down on mistakes. You can see that impact when Seattle plays because their execution is so phenomenal. Ultimately Carroll is able to mask his team’s problems by putting an extremely focused group of guys out there. So far it’s worked for the Seahawks and there’s no telling how far they’ll go? Maybe they can make a run at a wildcard spot but the real success will come in the next couple of years. This season was about weathering the storm and setting this organization up for a run later on down the line. The fact that Seattle is already on the verge of making the postseason makes it evident that the future is very bright for Carroll. After another free agency and draft they could be in a position to compete for a Super Bowl again. Therefore everyone has to tip their hat to the decision makers running this ball club. It’s not the first time they’ve pulled a rabbit out of the hat.
