The Seahawks are staring at their 1st losing season after 2011, and it will be the last season for Russell Wilson with the franchise. The team performance has been disastrous this season right from the beginning.
Despite the plunge in the form in NFC West, Peter Carroll does not feel that they need to dismantle the team and rebuild from scratch. He says that restarting the whole thing is something that he has never considered. He says that the team doesn’t need a new approach or a new philosophy.
Pete Carroll believes that the essence is always there. All the team needs are for someone to improve their strengths, and progress from there. He said that there was no time for stagnating, but the foundation is already there.
The contentious issue of R Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll is yet to be addressed.
