Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has a reputation for being enthusiastic and high energy. One of his newest players has experience that directly.
“Coach Pete Carroll was super hyped, and they say that’s how he is all the time, you know, super hyped and and enthused,” former Lions and current Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril told Pro Football Talk on Thursday. “He just goes through things so fast, just telling you we think we can use you here, we think you can do this and just going through different things. And he’s going through it pretty fast, kind of like you can’t get a word in a little bit, but it was all fun though. He was saying nothing but good things, saying that I believe I can hopefully come in and help the team out.”
So how will the Seahawks do with Avril in the mix?
“I don’t do predictions, I think the Seahawks will be real good this year,” Avril said. “I’m not throwing out any records or anything like that, but I think we have a chance to do some things and get into postseason play long as we can stay healthy and play to the potential, I think we can do some big things.”
That’s the prevailing view when it comes to the Seahawks. The only good news for every team not named the Seahawks is that the preseason champion rarely becomes the real champion.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
