Coach Pete Carroll had a simple question to start off this morning’s team meeting.
“Can we acknowledge that the season starts on Sunday?” the head coach giddily and rhetorically asked his players to officially start off the game week preparation. “If this doesn’t pump you up, nothing in the world can. The beginning, Qwest Field, a division opponent — this is an exciting time for us.”
Then Carroll turned the attention to today’s preparations, which include meetings, a walk-thru, a practice and more meetings. “Competition Wednesday” has arrived at Seahawks headquarters.
“Today is about getting on track to get everything right,” Carroll told his team. “We’ve got to have a great day today because it’s the only one we’ve got right now.
“It’s not about the other team; it’s about us.”
