Pete Carroll: Updates coming Wednesday on Harvin, Browner

Brandon Browner, Riley Cooper AP

The Seahawks played without wide receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback Brandon Browner against the Giants in Week 15, but they didn’t miss them much at all.

Seattle rolled to an easy 23-0 win at the stadium that will host the Super Bowl, which would be the next time the Seahawks will have to play on the road this season if they win home field in the NFC as expected. During his Monday press conference, coach Pete Carroll was asked about whether or not Harvin and Browner would be available to help the team try to lock up home field this weekend. Carroll said that there wouldn’t be any updates until later in the week.

“We’ll find out on Wednesday. [Browner's] got two days of running here to see how he does and we’ll see what happens. We don’t know,” Carroll said, via the Tacoma News Tribune.

Browner’s suspension appeal is still pending, leaving him available to play as long as his groin is healthy enough to be on the field. Carroll said the condition of his hip has fluctuated, leaving him week-to-week until he can resume a practice schedule.

    Browner would certainly be nice to have back…but with Maxwell and Lane playing beyond admirably…I don’t know that they even want him to be honest.

    I’m MUCH more hopeful that Harvin can come back healthy and help them down the stretch. I love the job that Baldwin/Tate/Kearse and co. have done, but there’s no question that the WR corps benefits more from his return than the DB group does from Browner’s.

    Browner’s appeal will conveniently not happen until after the season. The NFL deserves the black eye it has received from how it has bungled the illegal drug/PED fiasco in Seattle. Pete Carroll never had success at either the NFL or collegiate level until he learned how to cheat and get away with it at USC and he had no problem bringing his cheating ways with him to the NFL.

    This just in;
    We don’t need browner.
    We’re saving Harvin till playoffs

    thejuddstir,
    Feel free to point out anything that Pete Carroll himself has done which qualifies as cheating.
    Hate him all you want, but the USC debacle is on Reggie Bush. Pete has not been associated directly, (or indirectly for that matter) with any type of cheating in Seattle.

    Until anybody can prove anything they should stop with the “Pete the Cheat” “Cheathawks” and any other disparaging comments.

    All that you succeed in doing is making yourself look like somebody who just hates on Seattle because they are doing well.

    So there’s the Seahawks, and there’s everyone else.

    Enough with the cheating comments. The players who were found guilty of using PED’s LAST YEAR have already served their suspensions. The two players who were caught this year were suspended for non-PEDs. If you think weed is a performance enhancing drug, you are rather clueless. I don’t care much for Pete, but the cheating comments are just dumb and nonsensical at this point.

    Oh Pete Carroll was SUCH a cheater at USC. He personally forced the agents to give gifts to Reggie Bush and OJ Mayo (the basketball player) and he personally made unauthorized phone calls to the Women’s tennis players..

    Get real. The NCAA sanctions enforced on USC do NOT amount to cheating. Yes, they broke NCAA rules (they being the agents and the players), and PERHAPS the coaches of the football, basketball, AND tennis teams knew what had happened.

    But to say any of that had an impact on any of the games is just ludicrous. Not to mention the rules the NCAA has against players getting paid are BS to begin with.

    Harvin will be back for the first playoff game……..mark it.

    This is starting to get real old.

    Please list, in detail, what Pete Carroll and company have done that the feds have missed?

    Then take that list to your local DEA office and demand enforcement of the laws.

    Pete Carroll is not a control freak when it comes to his football players. He challenges them and encourages them and then gives them the freedom to live up to that challenge. For most they come through big time you can see it the performance of this still very young football team.

    Sometimes though, there are people who can’t handle it. Then he gets burned. If you’ve ever supervised people you know this. Most people are adult enough to have the discipline and responsibility to be successful in their own life and performance. Others are lazy and immature and will fall short and disappoint you.

    Pete Carroll is not going to change his ways for the lazy and immature. (Reggie Bush, Brandon Browner, etc) He is trying to build champions and he will continue to challenge his players to be their best and he will continue to get burned by those who can’t handle it.

    Browner and Harvin don’t matter because the 49ers will beat the Seahawks with or without them in the lineup.

  12. jchuber says: Dec 17, 2013 1:59 PM

    Also, I getting tired of all the cry babies on these posts. As camouflage for their teams PATHETIC performance during the year, they start crying about any excuse they can find, instead of admitting that their teams suck!!!

    For the NFC teams that are lucky enough to win a playoff trip to Seattle. you will love it this time of year.

    All the AFC teams are relieved they don’t have to go to Seattle. Very few having winning records anyway.

    The NFL should cancel their raffles and award Super Bowl home field advantage to team with best overall record.

    Seattle need to worry about their very poor running game. Last week against little blue’s inept defense, they only had 134 yards rushing.

    Oh yeah…they looked so ridiculously dominant in that last game, winning by a staggering 2 points, not even enough to cover a spread at home. When the niners come to town, try and keep it within 3 touchdowns this time. Playoff tickets are expensive.

    The 49ers had a better road record than home record in their Super Bowl years of the 1980′s. It shows that home field advantage is not guarantee of anything.

  16. juliusanonymous says: Dec 17, 2013 2:45 PM

    Not a fan of Percy Harvin.

    What a waste of money. Should have saved that cash and used it on Sherman, Thomas and Wilson – at least they are able to contribute.

    And yes, I’m a Seahawks fan. Just tired of all these overpaid has-been receivers coming here for a payday, then never playing again due to “injuries”.

  17. alankelly2013 says: Dec 17, 2013 3:09 PM

    Julius, It’s kind of hard to call a 25 year old a has been. He’s still kind of just getting started. Let’s see how he does either later this season or next year at least before we start calling him a bust.

    We saw in the Viking game what a dynamo he is on the football field. He might be one of those guys that proves to be worth the wait.

    Barry bonds single season HGH record.
    Sanfransisco giants must all be cheaters and stripped of all title’s

    I find it odd the 9ers would be better on the road than home during their SB runs.

    I do agree that home field advantage is not a guarantee of anything.

    Welcome to the 21st century. This is 2013, not the 1980′s. What happened a quarter century ago is great but only relevant to, well, 49er’s fans.

    The Cleveland Browns won some titles in the 50′s…. doesn’t mean anything today. The 49er’s titles in the 80′s? In 15-20 years no one will even remember. People will have to Google it.
