Near the end of this morning’s team meeting, Coach Pete Carroll scratched out a note and projected it on the screen.
It appeared to be a peculiar math problem that no one could figure out.
“(+1 = 1-0)”
While the players sat befuddled trying to find the answer, Carroll started to explain the formula. After going plus-1 in turnover margin in Saturday’s 20-18 win over Tennessee, the Seahawks are 1-0 when recording more takeaways than giveaways in a game.
“It couldn’t be more clear,” said Carroll. “We’ve got to maintain a conscience about getting after the football and taking care of the football.
“We can never lose sight of this. It’s so critical to our winning and losing.”
