Early Monday, head coach Pete Carroll joined the team's flagship radio station 710 ESPN Seattle for his weekly conversation with Brock Huard and Danny O'Neil.
"What a fun day at the stadium," an upbeat Carroll said of his team's 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
We agree with you there, coach. The Seahawks improved to 10-1 on the season, won a franchise-record 13th consecutive game at home, extended its lead in the NFC West to 3.5 games over the San Francisco 49ers (6-4) and Arizona Cardinals (6-4), and after the Kansas City Chiefs (9-1) fell to the Denver Broncos (9-1) on Sunday Night Football, Seattle now holds the best record in the NFL.
Carroll said the team came out of yesterday's game "very healthy" and that after today he'll give the club the rest of the week off with the Week 12 bye. The Seahawks are then set to return to Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday, November 25 to begin preparation for their Monday Night Football matchup with the New Orleans Saints (8-2).
"We want to get better," Carroll said. "We've got five games left to make a mark here in the regular season. We have to go for it."
Below are a couple more nuggets from Carroll's Monday conversation with "Brock and Danny" Read
- "The factor is there already. We haven't even started to implement him into the plan." Carroll, on how wide receiver Percy Harvin's presence positively affected the offense. "He's really happy to be on this team and thrilled to be able to help us," Carroll summed of Harvin's Seahawks debut.
- "We want him as a point guard - keep spreading that ball around and every now and then light it up with a great play of his own." Carroll, on the efficient play of quarterback Russell Wilson, who finished 13-of-18 for 230 yards and two touchdowns, good for 151.4 QB rating.
- Carroll noted the pass protection was better yesterday against the Vikings, as left tackle Russell Okung, right tackle Breno Giacomini and center Max Unger returned to the starting offensive line. The trio was removing a bit of rust, but quarterback Russell Wilson had ample time to sit in the pocket and locate his receivers down field. "We're not as good as we can be yet," said Carroll.
