Week 16 demonstrates how Pete Carroll's vision of constant competition is working in Seattle. Right, 49ers? Pat Kirwan also notes the Jets' QB issues and thinks Andy Reid deserves a shot to develop young Philly talent.
Kenny Powers: "A true champion will do whatever it takes to rise above. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies."
And there are plenty of coaches that do the opposite of Carroll that are just as, if not more, successful.
Correct. Take a look at Saban.
As a fan, I would choose Pete Carroll to run my program over any coach in the country. His teams always performed in big games, his recruiting is second to none, and his style is the most fun of any coach since Bowden in his day. The man has style and personality which is devoid of 95% of coaches today.
Other than the thing with the media, what does he do that's different?
I think Carroll is a very good coach, but the last few years under him, USC was performing poorly in their bigger games.

Sanctions and all, huh... Then he can leave your program high and dry. Hell of a coach. Please....
The only real point to be made here is that there are a ton of different ways to be a successful coach. Carroll found one that works for him.
guy had the best talent money could buy and still lost to inferior teams every year
his cheerleading is only stylish to people who drive mini-vans and drink capt. morgan's mixed drinks
Wrong. His 2nd to last year he was 12-1 with one of the best teams ever not to play for a title. The next year he had a mass exit of coordinators, coaches, and NFL talent. He started a true freshman at QB and injuries decimated his OL and he went 9-4.
Yeah because Carroll was the reason they got sanctions, not a rogue agent who was trying to get Bush to leave USC early. USC got a raw deal from the hypocritical NCAA. I
f you don't think Saban, Jimbo, Chip Kelly, etc would do the same in a NY minute, you are naive. Hell, Chip Kelly almost did it last year.
I loathe the media blackout but all I want to do is win. I do hate reading Miami's detailed practice reports with 10 people interviewed and then ours are three sentences with two about how someone is wearing a blue visor and the other sentence is about some guy named Foose not being dressed out.
How did Carrol's Jet teams do?
The 3 best college football coaches of the last 12 years are Saban, meyer, and Carroll.
that's the number of seasons in his 9 years at USC that Pete Carroll teams lost to an unranked conference opponent
5 of those were with a team that was ranked in the top 3
guy is the biggest underachiever of all time
lol at being anywhere near the top of the great coaches list of the last decade
Looking at it from a different angle, as a player, who would you rather play for- Carroll or Saban?
To me, it's an easy answer. Carroll has fun.
And Saban wins. Winning is fun. Going for his 4th MNC. I'll play for Saban.

The Future is Now.
Pete Carroll is 97-19 in the NCAA......
How about Mike Tomlin? 67-35 in the NFL with a Super Bowl ring.
and that's why his teams constantly lost focus during the season and why players that progressed into the NFL from his era have been mostly gigantic busts.
just pick a great player from those USC teams and there's probably a 70% chance you can describe their pro career with words and phrases like lazy, shit work ethic, self entitled, immature etc.
