We ran across this article in Bleacher Report, an interview with Seattle Seahawks wideout Golden Tate. Within the article, Michael Schottey listed many quotes that line up to Coach Carroll’s WinForever philosophy.
One of our favorites that Tate insisted on telling Schottey was, “control what you can control.” So many times in our lives—not just sports, but in daily life—do we get caught up in things we can’t control. Something that Coach Carroll has always preached is that you can’t worry about that. It causes anxiety that you don’t deserve. If you control what you can control, then that’s all what you can ask of yourself.
This philosophy, like Schottey explains, is a “better way to … Read More
Another article has surfaced that focuses on Coach Carroll’s WinForever philosophy. This one, coming from The News Tribune, points at Carroll’s youthful personality, and how it could catch on in the NFL.
“Carroll turned 62 on Sept. 15,” John McGrath writes. “He’s the NFL’s second-oldest coach, behind the Giants’ Tom Coughlin, who is 67 and working on his 40th consecutive year of comporting himself as if he’s 87.”
Carroll may be the second-oldest head coach in the league, but his philosophy of always competing and having the positive attitude is starting to catch on–not only with his players and staff, but the rest of the league, as well.
“It’s a radical way for an NFL coach to behave, but … Read More
From Sherman: “When you play at a high level, a game has nothing to do with the opponent; it has everything to do with us. That’s what makes us different, and that’s what makes playing in the NFL special.

It wouldn’t be surprising if that Pete Carroll quote gave you serious goosebumps–regardless of what team you “root” for.
In an article published today–for the upcoming ESPN The Magazine–Alyssa Roenigk profiled the unique Seattle experiment.
Within the feature, the Magazine profiled Dr. Michael Gervais and Sam Ramsden, the team’s high-performance sports psychologist and director of player health and performance, respectively. With unique positions like this for his team, Coach Carroll is in the process of bucking the trend of the hard-nosed coach.
Why, Carroll asked, couldn’t coaching be fun? As he often states, “happy players make for better players.” From ESPN: “Everyone in the facility, from coaches and players to personal assistants and valets, is expected to follow Carroll’s … Read More

After Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft wrapped up on Saturday evening, Seahawks GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll spoke with the media on another great draft class.
When one reporter approached Carroll with a question regarding his philosophy and competition, Coach was happy to answer. “The standards that you set and the expectations that you demand, is what calls players to play at their best,” Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says. “Regardless of what it looks like, we have the exceptions to play great football, and the standards that it takes to do that are set daily. When you build everything around you with the theme of competition, then that’s what sets the tone.”
Carroll’s organizations, … Read More
Check out Coach Pete Carroll talking to newly-acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin today, who Coach has dubbed the Seahawks No. 1 pick for the 2013 NFL Draft. “It’s a blessing,” Harvin says to be a No. 1 pick twice. “I’m glad to be here and looking forward to taking full advantage of the situation.”
The Seahawks used their 25th pick in this year’s draft to acquire Percy Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings, so it looks like they will have a quiet first round tonight.
