Wednesday Round-Up: Pete Carroll Wants Seahawks To "Demonstrate Resilience" In 2015

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks



Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, July 29 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

SI Cover Story: Pete Carroll On Rebounding From Super Bowl Loss

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is featured front and center on this week's issue of Sports Illustrated, explaining how excited he is to see how his team will bounce back from its tough loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.

In the story, written by SI's Greg Bishop, Carroll says it has been "thrilling" to go through this offseason after 2014 ended with the decision to throw the ball from the 1-yard-line on second-and-goal with less than 30 seconds to play, a call that resulted in an interception and 28-24 Super Bowl win for New England.

"If you hope I'm going to cry over the deal, I'm not," Carroll tells Bishop. "I've moved past that."

Bishop outlines how Carroll has developed his optimistic approach since his days as head coach at USC, a philosophy that has evolved over the years to center around grit and resiliency as Carroll's team heads into 2015.

"I want our whole organization to show off how to overcome stuff," Carroll says. "I want us to demonstrate resilience, which is one of the foundations of grit. We're going to demonstrate it, just like we demonstrated the resilience to win. That was freakin' awesome, to get back [to the Super Bowl last year] when everybody said there was no chance. We're going to face all that again; there's some comfort in that. We know how we're going to do this. Here we go."

The magazine featuring Carroll on the cover hits newsstands Aug. 3.

Help Name The New Podcast ... And You Could Win Tickets


Seahawks Radio Network executive producer Matt 'Stretch' Johnson launched his very own podcast on earlier this week, and he wants your help coming up with a name for his new show.
