After the Seahawks’ 43-8 win vs. Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII, owner Paul Allen praised coach Pete Carroll for his “preparation” of the club in all aspects.
“He’s the most forward-thinking coach for the players of today that I’ve seen,” Allen said, according to a transcript from the league. “It’s just amazing and you have to blend all the different elements.
“If you think about it, with the offense, defense, and special teams – all those things, the things he did like he was simulating even what the halftime would be like – there’s just a tremendous amount of preparation, especially before the Super Bowl since you have so much time, and I think they used that time amazingly well.”
A good process doesn’t always deliver desired results. In this case, it did, which is win-win for Carroll. If management likes the way the job is done and the outcome, that’s a good place to be.
