Early Monday morning, 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.
"We didn't finish the game like we had been finishing," Carroll said of Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Colts in Indianapolis, where the Seahawks defense was unable to hold a fourth-quarter lead and the club's offense could not muster up a game-winning drive in the final two minutes.
Carroll pointed to Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's ability to make the big plays when his team needed them most as the difference in the ball game. Despite the loss, Carroll did come away with some positives.
"What I'm most-happy about is that we came out just right," Carroll said of the 12-0 lead the Seahawks amounted early in the game's first quarter. "We really did capture the preparation and the mindset to go on the road in a difficult situation and play well. We really made a conscious effort to make sure that happened and we were firing on all cylinders. We need to make sure we capture that and take it back on the road in a couple weeks"
Below are a couple more nuggets from Carroll's Monday conversation with "Brock and Danny"
- All-Pro/Pro Bowl center
Max Unger, who has missed the last two games with an arm injury, will return to practice this week and should be ready to go Sunday against the Tennessee Titans at CenturyLink Field.
- Wide receiver
Percy Harvin(hip) will be back in Seattle this week, returning from a rehab stint in New York. Carroll said Harvin started running last week, but the team will not know more until Harvin has a chance to work out in front of team doctors. "If it can happen, then it's going to happen as soon as possible," Carroll said of Harvin's return to the practice field.
We'll hear more reaction from coach Carroll later today when he meets with reporters at 3 p.m. PT at Virginia Mason Athletic Center. You can watch that press conference live at shwks.com/live.
