Pete Carroll: A very ‘unusual’ start

Published on August 11, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll addressed the media after practice on Tuesday to discuss the game plan for the team’s first preseason game Thursday night against the  Chargers.

“Well, the first thing we’re looking for is seeing us play hard,” said Carroll. “I want to see the guys run around and hit and get back to football with as many guys as we’re going to play.

“We’re going to try and play everybody that travels with us.”

Carroll said that he has a schedule in place regarding just who will hit the field and for how many plays, and that it depends on each player’s level of conditioning and individual needs.

“A very unusual start,” said Carroll. “This is an unusual first game with the different levels that guys have come to camp and the times that they’ve been here.”

With the lack of an offseason clearly impacting conditioning levels and the newly-signed free agents only able to practice with the team since last Thursday, it’s not surprising that not everyone is up to game speed.

“It’s been an unusual kind of patience that we’ve had because we haven’t had weeks and weeks and weeks of snaps and plays and formations and breaking huddle situations,” said Carroll, of the lack of OTAs, minicamps and team meetings. “So we have to just wait, to a certain degree, and try to simplify things so that the guys can play without the hindrances and the distracting mistakes and things like that. It’s been a little different.

“We have to kind of look at it a little differently than we have at other times.”

Carroll said that he will be evaluating the roster Tuesday night to determine who will benefit the most from playtime on Thursday, but announced that Tarvaris Jackson will be the starting quarterback – although his reps may be limited.
