Carroll: “They did not waiver”

Published on November 22, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

One of the things that Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll seemed most pleased about after his team’s 24-7 win over St. Louis is his team did not let a slow start and two straight turnovers by the offense affect their desire to beat a team they should be on the road.

“What was really done well by our guys is that they did not waiver,” he said. “Nobody wavered at all. Nobody lost their mind on it, and nobody got down in the dumps.

“They knew it was the start of the football game and it didn’t matter. Something that we always preach is that we just keep playing. You could feel it change. It was just going to be a matter of time that we got back on top of this thing and got it going.”

For a second straight game Seattle was impressive on defense, holding the Rams to 185 total yards, forcing two fumbles and an interception. The Seahawks scored 14 points off the turnovers.

Seattle also sacked Sam Bradford five times, and held Steven Jackson to just 42 rushing yards.

Playing against an injury-riddled St. Louis offensive line, Chris Clemons was basically unblockable, finishing with three sacks and two forced fumbles.

Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane also finished with four tackles, including two tackles for a losss.

And the cornerback duo of Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman really made life miserable for the Rams’ receiver.

Specifically, Browner played physical, tight coverage on Brandon Lloyd all day, finishing with two pass deflections on the afternoon.

“When we played them in the preseason (when Lloyd was with Denver) that’s what went on in my head,” Browner said. “But it’s my second time going at him, so I kind of had a game plan of how I wanted to get after him. And I was able to execute it, and have fun. And win.”

And what was that game plan?

“To put hands on him,” Browner said. “That’s my deal, to put hands on him and do my job to the best of my ability. And let him not catch as many balls as possible. Get as many breaks as I can, get interceptions. I was just trying to get it.”

Lloyd was targeted a game-high 14 times, and finished with just five catches for 67 yards, including the Rams’ only touchdown, a 30-yard reception on Richard Sherman.

“It’s nice man,” said Seattle linebacker Leroy Hill about having the big corners out there Hill sported a Boz T-shirt after the game. “I mean you have two physical, big corners out there that’s throwing off the timing of the offensive plays, and it’s working out perfect for the rush we’ve got.”
