Now that they’re no longer on the same team, it appears as though Seattle Seahawks head coach feels it is safe to take some shots at his former quarterback…
During the Pete Carroll Show on Seattle Sports 710 AM earlier this week, the 71-year-old head coach was talking about the exceptional play of Geno Smith, and how he has been able to mesh so well with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, when he dropped this subtle shot at Wilson:
Via Seattle Sports 710 AM:
“If you notice, Geno’s going off the wristband, and that’s a big help,” he said. “It’s smoothed things out, sped things up, cleaned things up. And that’s part of it, too. We never did that before. There was resistance to that, so we didn’t do that before.”
Because the media loves a good beef, they didn’t hesitate to ask Wilson about Carroll’s comments regarding his reluctance to use wristbands in Seattle, to which Russ had the following response:
“Won a lot of games. Didn’t know winning or losing mattered whether you wore a wrist band.”
That’s quite the response from Wilson, but he wasn’t done there. Later on in the week, the Broncos quarterback was spotted wearing a play-calling wristband at practice—perhaps in an effort to troll Carroll?
These guys can go back and forth all they want, but they know that at the end of the day, it’s the one whose team has the most success that’ll have the last laugh.
Right now, that edge belongs to Carroll and the Seahawks, but with half-a-season still to go, head coach may not want to get too overconfident. We’ve all seen how quick things can change in the NFL.
