As Tom Brady and the Patriots prepare for their trip to Seattle this weekend (Brady’s first game in Seattle), it is also a chance for Pete Carroll to go against the team he coached for three years from ’97-’99. Much of the talk on sports radio this week has been about Carroll and his time in New England, and he even appeared on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning.
When it comes to the game itself, it will be interesting to see if the Patriots will be able to run their no-huddle, fast-paced offense with the crowd noise which comes with playing in Seattle. Seattle’s defense is ranked at the top of the league so Brady and the offense will certainly have their hands full, but with how bad the Seahawks’ offense is it shouldn’t take much offense to come home with a win.
