Wednesday Round-Up: Lists Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll Among Six QB-Coach Duos With Bright Futures

Which quarterback-coach combo has the greatest potential to log 10-plus years of success in the NFL?

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Wednesday, January 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

The Next Brady-Belichick?

Former NFL quarterback turned analyst David Carr previews the quarterback and head coach duos set to compete in Super Bowl LIII, a matchup that features longtime league standouts in New England's Tom Brady and Bill Belichick facing off against relative NFL newcomers in Los Angeles' Jared Goff and Sean McVay. The Patriots' pair has won five Lombardi Trophies together since 2001, while the Rams' combo seeks the first of their young careers.

With that Super Bowl scenario in mind, Carr goes on to list six quarterback-coach tandems who he believes have the greatest potential to log 10-plus years of success. The Rams' Goff and McVay come in at No. 2 on his list, while Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and head coach Pete Carroll hold the No. 1 spot. Here's what Carr had to say about Wilson and Carroll's future success with the Seahawks:

"It's hard to believe Carroll and Wilson have been together in Seattle for seven seasons already. SEVEN. It seems like just yesterday that Wilson was on the field to essentially hand the ball off to Marshawn Lynch, use his own legs in the run game and avoid making any mistakes that would jeopardize the elite defense's hold on the game. Now, at age 30, Wilson remains a threat with his legs, but he's also lethal in the pocket and consistently makes accurate throws. With Wilson more advanced as a QB than when the Seahawks competed for titles a few years ago and Carroll building a great defense yet again, it's hard to imagine the Seahawks dropping off any time soon. Plus, Carroll's energy and positive relationships with his players lead me to believe he could (and just might) coach forever."

The Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid come in at No. 3 and the Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck and Frank Reich at No. 4. Click here to see the rest of the list.
