Do Pete Carroll, Seahawks have beef with Russell Wilson?

The Seattle Seahawks pulled off a 17-16 victory in opposition to their former quarterback Russell Wilson and his Denver Broncos on Monday evening.

Wilson and head coach Pete Carroll had been collectively in Seattle for 10 years, most notably successful a Tremendous Bowl in 2014. They traded Wilson to Denver in March and a back-and-forth ensued on who truly wished the divorce: Wilson or the Seahawks group as a complete?

In a Tuesday morning look on Seattle Sports activities 710 AM, Carroll stated that he did not want the “validation” of victory on Monday, slightly he “just wanted it” and the win meant “a lot” to his roster. When requested about why it meant a lot to the gamers, Carroll gave an ominous reply.

“You figure that out,” Carroll stated. “It was really meaningful and they really wanted it and I knew we were playing for a lot more than just the regular stuff. We have a real connection with the history. They feel it and they love the fact that they played here and they love seeing us do well. On this night, they realized there was a big opportunity and a big statement to be made. The game isn’t about an individual player here or there. It’s about team. This is the ultimate team sport, and it’s been stated so many times before. It takes everybody.

“Generally when a lot focus goes, you understand, it simply rubs guys mistaken I suppose, or no matter. However I’m thrilled that we received that recreation. It was vital for lots of causes past simply it’s the primary recreation of the 12 months and all that.”

Former teammates of Wilson — and players he won a Super Bowl with — such as Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin, made Tweets criticizing-slash-mocking the Broncos throughout the game on Monday night.

And on Wednesday, Nick Wright, cohost of “First Issues First,” said that in his mind, Carroll’s comments and those by Wilson’s former teammates confirm the speculation that the quarterback isn’t universally loved by his teammates.

“You may’t have it each methods. We will not discuss how essential and good and useful it’s when your teammates love you after which act prefer it’s nothing when it looks like to a person your former teammates actually disliked you,” Wright said of Wilson. “There was plenty of reporting on it in actual time, and now Pete Carroll is confirming it. 

“So we can’t act like one of the best things about Lamar is those guys would run through a wall for him, and Jimmy G, for whatever his limitations are, his teammates love him, and Tom Brady gets guys to sign up to come play with him, and it doesn’t matter that the moment Russell Wilson loses that football game it is just a cavalcade of schadenfreude from former Seattle Seahawks. Like, gosh, Doug Baldwin’s got a tweet. Richard Sherman’s got a tweet. Pete Carroll is doing interviews about it.”

Wilson completed the sport with 340 passing yards, one passing landing and a 101.3 quarterback score, finishing 29 of 42 throws. Nevertheless, Denver fumbled inside Seattle’s 5-yard line twice within the second half and had a controversial closing drive, which ended within the group burning substantial clock and lacking a go-ahead 64-yard area aim.

Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith, who backed up Wilson from 2019-21, completed the sport with 195 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and a 119.5 quarterback score, finishing 23 of 28 throws.

Seattle hits the street to tackle the San Francisco 49ers, whereas Denver hosts the Houston Texans in Week 2 of the NFL season.
