The phase Pete Carroll used was “over-trying.”
That’s how the ninth-year Seahawks head coach described the play of veteran quarterback Russell Wilson on ESPN 710 on Tuesday morning, hours after Seattle dropped a 24-17 decision to the Chicago Bears to fall to 0-2.
Wilson had one interception and a lost fumble in the defeat. He was also sacked six times, five of which occurred in the first half. Seattle’s 12 sacks allowed through two games ranks dead last in the NFL. Carroll added Wilson is pressing in difficult situations instead of getting rid of the ball. He has a tough matchup against the Cowboys in Week 3.
