Stop me if you’ve heard this come out of Pete Carroll’s mouth before, “it’s a good call if we made it”. I’m sure we all remember hearing that after the disastrous pass play on the yard line that was picked off by Malcom Butler of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 49.
News flash Pete, every call is a good call if you made it. The problem is, you seem to never make it. This time the scrutiny comes from a failed attempt at a fake field goal at the end of the first half of a 34-31 loss to the falcons this past weekend.
Look at that score again. 34-31. The Seahawks lost by three points. The game should have been tied but no, instead, Pete Carroll had to be Pete Carroll and screw his team again. Blair Walsh missed a 52 yard field goal that would have tied the game at the end of regulation.

So let me get this right Pete, you trusted one of the worst under pressure kickers of all time with a 52 yard field goal when you should have already had the game tied. Who let you be a coach in the NFL? You’re not that good at it after all.
You would think that after the pass that should have been a run and the run that should have been a pass, Pete Carroll would learn from his mistakes. He doesn’t seem to get it, and that’s what worries me the most as a fan. He constantly makes horrible calls. How long will it be until those calls force the Seahawks brass to look for a new coach?
