Good morning, 12th Man. Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Jan. 29 - about your Seattle Seahawks, four days before Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.
Jeffri Chadiha of ESPN.com says a recent survey conducted to NFL players revealed the Seahawks' Pete Carroll to be the most appealing coach to play for. Carroll received 72 of 320 votes, good for 23 percent of the final tally. Chadiha writes, "Given the opportunity to articulate what they'd want in a head coach, most players would say similar things. They'd covet honesty, fairness and intelligence above all else. Dictatorial is a quality they'd do without. Players basically desire a coach they can trust -- with their careers and with their dreams -- and they'd relish the chance to find such a man. That probably explains why Seattle's Pete Carroll is held in such high regard. No coach in the NFL can make players feel so good about coming to work."
