Pete Carroll: Russell Wilson “ready to play a very good game”

AP

The NFC-champion Seahawks appear likely to have their full complement of players available on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin, wide receiver Percy Harvin (concussion), running back Marshawn Lynch (not injury related) and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle) are all probable for Sunday’s game against Denver, according to the NFL’s Friday injury report.

Baldwin, Harvin, Lynch and Mebane all practiced fully during Friday’s indoor practice at the Giants’ facility. In fact, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told practice pool reporter Peter King of SI.com that everyone on the roster practiced without limitation. This was the club’s last major workout of Super Bowl week.

According to King, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson “appeared particularly crisp in his execution of the offense and his passes” on Friday.

“Russell is exactly where he’s always pictured he’d be in life,’’ Carroll told King, who filed a practice report for media use on behalf of the Pro Football Writers of America. “He prepares impeccably, and he has prepared like that this week. I think he is ready to play a very good game.”

    When they pull the players off the pile, there will be no sign of Wilson. Just Pot Roast Knighton and one of Russell’s shoes.

    —————–

    That’s right, because Knighton will be hugging air while Wilson is shredding the Broncos defense with his legs & 1 shoe.

  2. What I don’t understand is why broncos fans don’t see the pot roast is the flavor of the month .

    Your defense is so mediocre their trying to turn a good player into a pro bowl and all pro bc the talent around his is not worth even mentioning . Dudes played well this month no one can take that away . But he’s playing a pro bowl and all pro center . Uhh he’s not dominating Unger . Pot roast will make plays but Seattles licking their chops to play a defense as bad as a Denver . You all love to point of recent struggles . That’s what playing 7 or the last 8 games against top 5 or 6 defenses will do . That’s stiff competition . Forgetting the Seahawks have been way more battle teated than the broncos is going to bite every bronco fan in the world .
    People act like Manning Can’t lose or somehow him achieving best of all time stats is so much more impressive than Seattle statistically being among the Nfls beat defenses ever . Manning has played great defenses but he’s never played a better secondary in his entire career . Stats and talent tell us this .

    Seattle will win first SB as second youngest team to ever be in the game 31-21

  3. Denver fans are going to be shocked how effective RW and the Hawks offense is.

    Sorry but Seattle has played defenses much better than Denver’s virtually every game down the stretch.

    Here’s how it stacks up…

    Denver’s offense hasn’t seen a defense even close to Seattle’s all year.

    Seattle’s offense played over half their games against defenses better than Denver’s.

  4. Russell Wilson will continue the Seahack legacy of never winning a Super Bowl.

    Nietzsche referred to such a group as the ‘bungled and the botched’. They get close to greatness, maybe even taste it but always fail in the end.

  5. Clutch Wilson will torch Denver’s pathetic defense like it’s nothing to him. Watch and see. He’ll easily throw for over 300 and 3 tds. Lynch and the D do all the rest. 34-17 Seahawks and it won’t feel that close.

  6. Teams with top-ranked scoring defenses are 12-3 in Super Bowls. The Steelers and Giants combined have won four Super Bowls the past 9 seasons with great defenses and average QBs. All Wilson needs to do is protect the ball.

    Let’s see … 15 years in the league and one ring. If I were you, I’d be concerned with Peyton’s legacy. You don’t need Denny Greene to tell you that, HE IS WHO WE KNOW HE IS !!! Peyton threw 55 TDs and over 5500 yards in regular season, most of which was “cotton candy”. When you bite, it’s mostly air. There is little substance.

    Importantly, over 1/2 of the yards were AFTER THE CATCH. When you catch it against Seattle, the sound goes BOOM and the lights may go out. LOB!!!

  8. God, I hope Denver wins in a blowout. Carroll cheated, left my Trojans out to dry (innocent players only, the guilty all got away with it) while he left just in time to avoid action by the NCAA. And now he’s one game away from being rewarded for it with a Super Bowl ring.

  9. Actually Carroll left USC because he was there for a long time, won championships, and had nothing else to accomplish. He wanted to get back in the NFL and see if his approach could succeed. It has. K bye

  10. Seahawks fans make me smile. They are still obsessed with the niners and think they will win in a blowout. They have been squeaking out wins for weeks

  11. I’m not taking anything away from Denver’s talent cause there is a lot there but they have yet to see a deffence like the seahawks Russell Wilson has struggled lately but will bounce back Harvin back in the line up will throw the weakened Denver secondary off and seahawks will take advantage the broncos will struggle to stop the beast in lynch seahawks will control TOP and keep manning off the field and win this fans handly and when manning is on the field he has the toughest D he’s faced broncos lose hands down seahawks on top 27 -20

  12. New York is swarming with Hawk fans!!!! I can’t walk 20 feet without seeing a hawk fan or hearing go hawks!!!! It’s crazy out here.
    It’s going to be great game no matter what…. I just hope Denver doesn’t take loss too hard…. I’m sure on their bus ride home, their fans will be waiting and cheering for them!!! We’ll get one next year Payton!!!

  13. He may play a “very good game”
    BUT…..It wont be enough when Manning plays a fantastic game !

    BRONCOS WIN !

    His last championship was in the 2004 season. He left 5 years later, when he knew the hammer was coming down from the NCAA.
