Seattle Seahawks head coach, Pete Carroll, reflected on his season and final game of the season.
After a 20-36 defeat to the high flying Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Divisional Final, Carroll spoke about the loss and the season as a whole. According to Carroll, he had not slept for two nights in a row after the loss. He explained that he was disappointed by the loss but he was also extremely excited about the future of his Super Bowl winning core.
“In the locker room after the game, it just was so obvious to me that we had had a season that kind of looked like the game,” said Carroll during his year end press conference on Monday. “The inability to be consistently on it throughout the game where we saw that we had tremendous opportunity and had chances to do some great things, then they got away. Then we had our opportunity to come back, then we didn’t quite get it finished. It felt like the season, in a sense. The line of consistency that we need to play at to play at the top level of this game, it just eluded us a bit. We saw a great glimpse in the Detroit game of exactly how we want to play and precisely how it’s supposed to look firing in all cylinders, then we needed to carry that into the next week, but we ran into a buzz saw and weren’t able to get those guys.”
