710 ESPN Seattle Audio: Pete Carroll talks Week 15 with "Brock and Danny"
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.
"That was really a complete game for the fellas," Carroll said of the Seahawks 23-0 victory over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. "That's what it's supposed to look like."
For the Seahawks, it was the team's first road shutout since 2005 - a 42-0 victory at the home of the Philadelphia Eagles. For the Giants, it was the first time they've been blanked at home since a 1995 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Seattle's defense dominated the day, forcing five interceptions of Giants quarterback Eli Manning - two by All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, two by cornerback Byron Maxwell, and one shutout-saving pick by All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas.
"Everybody knew it, but no one was talking about it," Carroll said of his club's ability to preserve the shutout. "It was kind of like a no-hitter."
