Pete Carroll had a amusing quote about the adjustments his Seattle Seahawks made at halftime of their game against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. The team is unsure how long the veteran will be sidelined as he rehabs this injury.
Many Packers fans made it clear on social media Thursday they're ready for coach Mike McCarthy's departure. "We were 4-5, I think it was, and we got on a hot streak", Wilson said. "We didn't have clean information there", McCarthy said. The head coach, it's important for him to stand in front of that and take that.
"I don't have the exact extent of the injury, so I'm sure he'll answer that next week for you", McCarthy said.
Not only did Wilson finish Thursday's game against the Packers with 225 passing yards and two touchdowns, but he added on to his already impressive season totals.
McCarthy, who led the Packers to one Super Bowl title and nine playoff appearances in his first 11 seasons, is in danger of missing the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time in his career.
In fact, McCarthy said he was prepared to call a timeout and get set up for the fourth-down play before a discussion with the staff helped change his mind. The only problem is Green Bay still has tough road games against the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. Seattle responded with a 75-yard touchdown drive to take the lead at 27-24, and when Rodgers missed an easy third-down throw on the ensuing possession, McCarthy opted to punt the ball away on fourth-and-2 with 4:20 to go rather than going for it. The Packers more than doubled the Seahawks offensive production in the first quarter and they did it while possessing the ball less. "Is it frustrating? Yes, it's very frustrating to come out on these types of losses when you know you should be winning these games".
"The whole time, we were pressing for really quick return and he was going for it and we were going for it and the docs (doctors) we're going for it and all that, and it just maybe was too much, too soon but we found out that he did everything he could", Carroll continued.
