Pete Carroll: Nothing’s going to change that quick at quarterback

The Seahawks have not taken a quarterback in this year’s draft and head coach Pete Carroll said on Saturday they aren’t going to be adding any players to that position group in the near future either.

Carroll appeared on NFL Network as the draft moved closer to completion and discussed the ongoing competition between Drew Lock, Geno Smith, and Jacob Eason for the quarterback job. Carroll said the team will always look at available players, but that they have no immediate plans to add another player into the mix at this point.

“Nothing’s going to change that quick, no. We’re really happy with the guys we’ve got, see them battle and see what happens down the road,” Carroll said.

Carroll famously said the Seahawks had no intention of trading Russell Wilson shortly before Wilson was shipped to the Broncos in March, so it’s probably wise to wonder if the Seahawks have something else up their sleeve as the current trio continues to go through the offseason program.

  1. Actually glad to see the Hawks come to reality that they are more than just “a piece away” and don’t have Russ to scramble around and bail them out anymore. Rebuild, and decide about a QB next offseason.. or take Baker for free in about 3 -4 weeks.

  2. Translation: “The Browns are being unreasonable in trade talks so we’re just going to wait until they cut Mayfield”

  3. Ha. So Lock needs real coaching. Does that include his mechanics which have been coached up since high school without improvement? Stop making excuses for this soft baby. You’ll find out soon enough.

    As will the Broncos, but the Seahawks’ investment is much smaller…..

  5. Either Garp or Mayfield are an upgrade over Lock on their good days. And there’s the rub. Would not be surprised if he passed on both..

  6. Lock is better than Wilson. Lock release ball quicker than Wilson that running around longer. The offense would rather play Lock than Wilson.

  7. Geno Smith will be the starting QB unless Drew Lock shows he is fully capable of being the future franchise QB in Seattle. One thing for sure; competition will result in having the best player on the field. Hopefully, Lock takes full advantage of what is being presented him. If not, It could be a long season.

  8. And still, nobody mentions Jacob Eason; he should have started the first game last year for the Colts.

  9. Two first rounders in 2023 to go with a better QB draft class. They filled the holes as much as possible this year, with 2 serviceable QBs on the roster. The assumption being they’re going to have at least 1 pick in the first half of next year’s first round.

  10. Come on now Pete you know that you can’t allow for the Browns to release Baker! The Seahawks HAVE to suck it up, pay half to have a chance to compete with the big boys! TOO many teams after the draft and free agent signings are still unsure about their QB situation to allow Baker to choose which team will actually allow him a chance to compete for QB1!
