Earlier this week, head coach Pete Carroll put out a request to his followers on Twitter to submit any questions they had for him. A couple of days later, coach answered several of those questions with some video responses, which we’ve compiled below.
One of the more interesting responses from coach Carroll came when he was asked who he believes will be the Seahawks’ breakout player in 2013. His answer? Quarterback Russell Wilson.
“I think it’s going to be Russell Wilson,” Carroll said. “I think he’s going to really do well this year. He’s going to bust out and will benefit tremendously from his first year. It may be hard to imagine he’s going to get any better, but I think he’s going to get a lot better, being he was a first year starter, first time in the League.”
Considering Wilson passed for 3,118 yards, tied Peyton Manning’s rookie-record with 26 passing touchdowns, and posted a 100.0 QB rating while leading the club to an 11-5 record and their first road playoff victory since 1983, Carroll’s comments should provoke some pretty fun thoughts for the 12th Man.
