Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll speaks on Percy Harvin injury

Considering the potentially season-ending injury suffered by wide receiver Percy Harvin, you’d think the Seattle Seahawks would be in panic mode right now. That isn’t the case, however, at least not as far as coach Pete Carroll is concerned.

Carroll spoke with CBS Sports about maintaining a positive team attitude at training camp despite the huge setback:

That’s how we are. That’s just the way we try to live and operate. We’ve always been on that end of the spectrum, and we like being there. It’s nothing new, and it’s not about this season. It’s always certainly been a part of my coaching, and we operate on that side of the ledger.


We’re always looking at the guys who are available to us, and meanwhile we’re going to take care of Percy with the highest of hopes that we’ll figure it out and know the exact thing to do and all of that. So we have plenty of time and we’re going to utilize all of that time to take care of him.

The Seahawks coaching staff hopes Golden Tate can step-up in Harvin’s absence, but I donut know if he’s quite ready.

    I do know Tate can be just as explosive as Harvin. watch the bears game and especially the last drive in regular play. he broke off 4 tacklers and dove for the TD. Golden is as his name suggests and will be great this year and many Years to come. Go Hawks. p.s. get well or get out Harvin

  • Ben Peterson

    Harvin is the most explosive player on this team at the moment. Golden Tate is also a good player and can do some of the same things that Harvin can, but teams don’t have to gameplan for him as much as they would for Harvin. I hope that everything is OK there, but it’s not the end of the season if he’s not there for a few games.
