The Seattle Seahawks have started to build a reputation of sorts for PED suspensions. One them however Pete Carroll believes was positive for his young team.
“It set us in a new mode, in a new mentality,” Carroll said, via Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune. “I found that we were a very young team, with young minds, and guys that needed to formulate the plan, how it all fits together, and the best way we could do that is to gather the power that they represent us – everybody represents the Seahawks.
“In that process of talking through that, and working through that with the coaches and the players, we really came together with a really simple thought, that we’re ‘Seahawks 24-7.’ ”-ProFootballTalk.com
While suspensions are never good on the field but the Hawks are in the Super Bowl, if Carroll believed it worked then it may have done something to unify the team.
