Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he and every one of his players believed they were going to beat the Panthers today, even when they were losing 31-0 at halftime.
“There wasn’t a guy in the locker room who didn’t think we were going to win the football game. There wasn’t a word in that direction for a moment. The demonstration of what happened in the second half proved it. These guys totally believe that they can do whatever they’ve got to do, they believe in each other,” Carroll said after the game.
Although the Seahawks ended up losing 31-24, Carroll said he believes his team was poised to win the game and would have with just a little more time.
“We just ran out of time. There wasn’t quite enough time,” Carroll said. “Unfortunately it was a terrible start and we just didn’t have enough time to overcome it.”
The Seahawks showed a lot by playing well in the second half. Just not enough to win.
