Pete Carroll: Seahawks have a deep-seated belief we can get it done

USA Today

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says his team never doubted it could win on Sunday night, even when the Vikings were inches away from clinching the game.

Carroll said when the Vikings were going for it on fourth-and-inches, needing just one more first down to run out the clock and secure a 26-21 win, the Seahawks still thought they’d win it.

“That comes from a really deep-seated belief that you can get it done,” Carroll said. “You watch them go down the field on us, why would we think we could stop them on fourth down? But we did, we stopped them on third down and fourth down. The resilience that it takes to come through in situations like that comes from somewhere, it comes from a belief that you’re going to be able to get it done, and if you don’t feel like that, then you relent. That’s not what these guys are about.”

The win improved the Seahawks to 5-0. They’ve gotten it done every week this season.

  1. The rest of the world has a deep-seated belief that the Vikings will choke – especially in prime time.

  2. The Vikings didn’t choke. They did what they needed to win the game. The failure to get the 4th down conversion and turning the ball over to Russell was due to great play by Seahawks & the injury to Cook. The winning drive was not a choke. It was incredible play by several Seahawk players.

    This game was hard fought and the Vikings are a quality team. I hope Cook isn’t injured, long term. He is a great player.

  3. Goodell and the NFL obviously got the result they wanted in this game. There is ZERO chance that play was a fumble. If it was Wilson that was throwing the ball there is 100% chance they rule that an incompletion.

  4. I wish us packer fans had a big game qb like Russ, Aaron has choked in the playoffs for going on a decade.

    Ok, let’s assume you’re right (and frankly I agree with you) and it was an incomplete pass. Then you also have to admit that by rule, the Seahawk end zone catch on 2nd down was in fact a TD.

    The ref with a direct LOS saw that he caught it and made a football move before losing it. The ref that came up and called it incomplete said the ball hit the ground. (You can see that ref signaling that it hit the ground when he was running up to it.) But replay definitely showed it never hit the ground and it was a catch.

    So if you want things to go right one direction you have to be open to it going right the other direction also. And in fact, had it been a catch on 2nd down the Vikes would have had more time to go down and score.

    And then the next play, Kirk Cousins had a 100% chance of chucking a 65-yard hail mary over all the Seahawks.

    Even if it is incomplete, it doesn’t matter
