As comebacks go, it fell well short of “What’s your deal?,” but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did notice what 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said about his team.
After Harbaugh gave his “if you cheat to win then you’ve already lost,” speech yesterday in regards to the Seahawks multiple suspensions for performance enhancing substances, Carroll was asked for his response at Seahawks minicamp.
“We’ve kind of dealt with this to set into motion a really clear mindset to take care of business and treat this situation that is around the league very seriously,” Carroll said, via Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times. “I don’t know about commenting about anybody else’s team, but as far as we’re concerned we feel like we’ve addressed it directly.”
It’s hard for Carroll to lay claim the high road on this one, since his team leads the league in PED suspensions since he took over.
And we suspect the answer he really wants to give will come the next time the Seahawks have the lead and the ball against the 49ers. Which coincidentally, could be on NBC’s Sunday Night Football in Week Two.
