Throughout the Seattle Seahawks’ two-week playoff run, there were plenty of incredible articles that focused on Coach Carroll and his competitive spirit, with some great mentions of the WinForever philosophy.
Below are the best pieces we have come across.
-In Sporting News, Clifton Brown wrote about Carroll, who is constantly delivering a message are rarely sitting still, when mentioning he has branded his “WinForever” philosophy.
-Michael Schottey of Bleacher Report laid out the facts about Coach Carroll and dove into the WinForever philosophy the best we’ve seen. “Carroll realizes he’s a bit of an “odd man out” when it comes to NFL coaches. It’s not that he thinks outside of the box; it’s more like he has no idea where the box is, what it looks like or why anyone would care what people in the box say.” When asked to describe his philosophy, Carroll replied: “It’s about being the very best you can be. Nothing else matters as long as you’re working and striving to be your best. Always compete. It’s truly that simple. Find the way to do your best. Compete in everything you do.”
-The Washington Post’s Rick Maese dove into Coach Carroll’s reputation as a coach: “Carroll is one of the most colorful characters in the coaching ranks. He’s the second-oldest coach in the NFL, but as Seattle tight end Anthony McCoy says, “he acts like he’s the youngest.” Carroll is introspective and motivational. He has a reputation as a rah-rah guy, but he’s also calm and thoughtful.”
-Lastly, in The Seattle Times, Jerry Brewer mentioned the “Win Forever” book in describing Coach Carroll and his lifelong journey: “Carroll has one of the most intriguing success stories in sports, mostly because his start was so rocky. Rarely does a coach fail twice and then turn his career around so dramatically. Carroll is always ready to explain how it happened, hoping to create a wall between his rough past and his remarkable present. His book, “Win Forever,” is, among other things, an exploration of how he evolved into a successful coach, and he included the Denver/San Francisco decision in it.”
