710 ESPN Seattle Audio: Pete Carroll talks Week 10 with "Brock and Danny"

Posted Nov 11, 2013

Head coach Pete Carroll reflects on the Seahawks 33-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons with 710 ESPN Seattle's "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 and Danny." KING 5 television's Chris Egan filled in for Brock Huard this morning.

"That was the best one that we've played," Carroll said of Sunday's 33-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome. "It's been coming."

The Seahawks dominated in all phases of the game, putting up 490 yards of total offense behind a season-high 145-yard rushing effort from running back Marshawn Lynch. The Beast Mode back's 145 yards on Sunday coupled with the 125 he put up in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mark the highest two-game total in Lynch's career.

"He's playing great football," Carroll said of Lynch. "He's playing so consistently, tough, the style points are there. He's going. Every play he gets he's giving everything he has."

And after back-to-back weeks giving up 200 yards or more on the ground, Seattle's defense allowed 64 yards rushing on the day while holding the Falcons to just 4-of-12 on third down.

"This is how we want to march down the rest of the schedule," Carroll summed.

Below are a couple more nuggets from Carroll's Monday conversation with "Brock and Danny"

    • Carroll said wide receiver Percy Harvin is due to be elevated from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list to the team's active roster today. "He has made great progress," Carroll said. "He's really excited to get back on the practice field."

    • Carroll noted center Max Unger (concussion), left tackle Russell Okung (toe) and right tackle Breno Giacomini (knee) will practice together this week with the No. 1 offensive line. All three linemen are eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. "That's a major boost," Carroll said. "It seems like we've been waiting a long time."

    • Carroll said cornerback Brandon Browner, who left Sunday's game against the Falcons with a groin injury and did not return, suffered "a significant pop" and is expected to miss some time. "He's going to be down for a bit," Carroll said. "We don't know how extensive it is, but it could be quite a while."

    • Carroll said defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (hamstring) could have returned to yesterday's game against the Falcons if needed.

    • Carroll said defensive end Red Bryant is not as far along as center Max Unger is his recovery from the concussions the pair suffered in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "We'll have to wait and see on that one," he said.

    • "It's our best accomplishment of the season that we've been able to hang through this." Carroll, on the team's offensive line play without starters Max Unger, Russell Okung, and Breno Giacomini.

    • "There aren't many guys like him. When he catches the ball he knows the next guy is not going to tackle him." Carroll, on the yards-after-catch ability of wide receiver Golden Tate.

    • "It was about a C-. The result was good. Style points were poor." Carroll, on running back Marshawn Lynch's wobbly toss back to quarterback Russell Wilson that resulted in a 43-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.
