Carroll says Hawks will stay humble

Published on December 20, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

The takeaway for the Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll in his team’s 38-14 win over Chicago was not the impressive win on the road, but the way they got it – scoring 31 unanswered points in the second half, with folks at Soldiers Field streaming for the exits early in the fourth quarter.

“It is a big deal,” Carroll said. “We’ve played these guys now three times, and to get them twice and really get them well two times – we’ve beat them pretty good the two times here – that’s really exciting. Unfortunately that darn snow game ain’t going away. We missed that one.

“But it is important. We put this to rest. It’s not a big deal going to the middle of the country and playing a football game at 12 o’clock. It’s been a problem for a lot of teams.”

Still, at 7-7 with two games left against NFC West division opponents San Francisco at home and Arizona on the road, Carroll said he’ll keep his players in check.

“We’re going to be humble about it,” Carroll said. “The last thing we’re going to do is be cocky about it. But it’s just exciting to see these guys latch on to the ability to play late in the season and late in games and finish football games.”

Carroll announced that receiver Mike Williams suffered a broken ankle in the second half, meaning he’s done for the remainder of the season. Linebacker Malcolm Smith suffered a head injury and did not return. And receiver Golden Tate suffered an abdominal injury early in the second half but returned.

With Williams out, the Seahawks only have five healthy receivers on the active roster.
