Pete Carroll gives Seahawks full week off

Jets Seahawks Football AP

After a second consecutive win to move to 6-4 on the season, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll gave his team a simple message on Monday.

Get outta here.

Carroll gave his players the entire week off as Seattle finally gets their bye in Week 11 of the season. Seattle knocked off the woefully struggling New York Jets 28-7 on Sunday. The Jets didn’t score an offensive touchdown against the Seahawks and Seattle held the Jets to just 185 yards on the day.

The Seahawks could use the rest to heal up. They had their most populated injury report of the season heading into the Jets game. Carroll expects that everyone on his team will be able to return to practice next week following the break.

“What we will gain is rest, and the rehab part of it we can also get done. We got to get back to work and really hit it on Monday,” Carroll said.

The biggest problem was trying to make sure his rookie quarterback Russell Wilson actually took some time off as well. The workaholic Wilson has been known to regularly give his receivers a breakdown of the Seahawks’ next opponent before the coaching staff even has a chance to formulate a game-plan for the week. Yet, Wilson is expected to take some time off during the break, even if it is somewhat begrudgingly.

“He has some plans, we have talked about his plans, and he gets it,” Carroll said. “He’s going to take a little break and I think he’ll be gone for about three hours tomorrow.”

    Uhhh… The over under on Seahawk player arrest over the next seven days: 4 1/2 …

    Let’s hope SF takes this week off too and Hawks can gain a game.

    as a hawks fan I COMPLETELY disagree with this. winning on the road is THE single biggest problem. you need to fix this problem and a week off is not the answer. even spending the bye week in Miami would be better than this. I seriously hope this problem will be addressed soon.

    Bye comes at a good time. As noted, the injury list was getting pretty long, and an extra week will help us get guys like KJ, Carp, and Thurmond ready for the stretch run.

    Good move Pete. It’s a very long and grueling season. They are beat up, probably the last team to have a bye, so they need the R & R.

    The players really appreciate this. Getaway for awhile and come back ready to work. This team is a couple plays from being 8-2 or even better. It’s easy to burn out mentally and you know the physical part.

    And don’t forget their record has a big fat * next to it. They really are 5-5.

    Being a lifelong Seahawk fan it’s really awesome that this guy is going to be our QB for the next 10+ years!

    GO HAWKS!!!

    Really? Where? I have looked everywhere for this mythical “*” next to the Seahawks 6-4 record but have been unable to find it. My prediction is that it is hiding out with unicorns, big foot and god.

    Huh, really you must have seen a different game than me. Didn’t the ref strike end the next day because that was possibly the worst call in NFL history? Pretty sure it did.

    I didn’t say it wasn’t the wrong call, but guess what bro, no matter what you or anyone else says or how much you complain…the fact is that the Seahawks won the game. Get over it.

    Put an asterisk on the phantom PI call on Chancellor too that put that game in a position that led to the last play determining the outcome. Without that egregious call after the Seahawks stopped the Packers on 3rd down, the Pack would have never scored their td and the Seahawks would have been in victory formation instead of desperation hail mary position and the whining about the Seahawks being cheaters would have never taken place and we’d probably still have the replacement refs (which honestly weren’t much worse than the official officials). Shut up.

    packer fans still bitchin about that call,get over it for crying out loud,we hawk fans didnt bitch that long about how we got screwed in the super bowl,and ur whining about a regular season game,wow get it together

    Why isn’t any national media outlet showing Seattles local channel 13 angle on Tate’s catch, clearly showing possession by both players… Oh, that’s right, every analyst would have to eat all their words of “outrage” at the call. Go Hawks, screw all the haters.
