With one of their most inconsistent 1o win seven behind them, the Seattle Seahawks have turned their attention to Saturdays NFC Wildcard Playoff game against the Detroit Lions at CenturyLink Field.
The Seahawks won the NFC West division with a 10-5-1 record, marking the fifth straight time the franchise has won ten or more games in a single season all under Pete Carroll. While the ten win mark record shows stability and consistency in Pete Carroll’s tenure as the team’s head coach, the same cannot be said of this year’s team.
The Seahawks longest win streak this season was three games and that little short run was followed by an inexplicable 14-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. While the Seahawks never lost two consecutive games in all season, the three-game win streak was the only time the team seemed to have garnered any type of momentum. So the question facing team inconsistency, is which version of the Seahawks will show up Saturday at CenturyLink Field? For Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, there is no doubt which team will show.
Positive Pete continued to be well positive Pete during his weekly press conference which is no surprise. While the Seahawks are a young team, the team does have a core of veteran players who know what it takes to make a long and sustained playoff run.
