Pete Carroll has always had the magic fairy dust when it comes to turning around football teams. He quickly transformed USC from a stagnant former power into dominant national champions, and the Seahawks from a bad NFC West team into Super Bowl champs. The downside of Carroll’s highly emotional, loose culture is that ends up collapsing on itself.
Carroll fled USC to escape pending NCAA probation that ended up crushing the Trojans, and it looks like his magic has run out in Seattle, too. After missing the playoffs this season, the Seahawks have parted ways with vocal leaders Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman, and Colin thinks the unraveling has begun.
Since losing on the final play of the Super Bowl to the Patriots in 2014, Seattle hasn’t come close to getting back, and the swag has devolved into players openly questioning his coaching decisions and creating locker room division with franchise QB Russell Wilson.
At his previous stops, Carroll has never been capable of stopping the nosedive once it gets rolling downhill. Colin thinks this is the beginning of the end of Seattle.
