I’d like to know: How many of yall really wanted to move on from Pete Carroll? In the short life of our Seattle Seahawks, they’ve had 8 coaches (on the search for the 9th), and it is not so obvious that Pete is the best of the bunch. We’ve been lucky. Some very cool, very ambitious people have rolled through our little port town and have helped bring a lot of joy to the fanbase. Pete’s departure hurts, and the reality of the situation hits a bit harder than expected, in both a negative and positive sense. How would you have handled this off-season? Do you like the process that ‘Hawks management went through to ask Pete to move on? Who is your preferred successor?
