Coach Pete Carroll wants home-field advantage to be just that.
An advantage. A big one.
All along, Carroll has been saying great football teams win at home, and the Seahawks have a chance to go to 2-0 at home with Sunday’s matchup against San Diego. But Carroll is emphasizing that the opponent shouldn’t be the focus for the Seahawks on Sunday as much as owning their home field.
“It doesn’t matter who comes in — whether it’s the 49ers, the Chargers or the ’85 Bears,” Carroll told his team this morning. “We have to dominate at home.”
