Pete Carroll says Russell Wilson is playing great despite dip in numbers

The Seattle Seahawks got a win over the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. It came with quarterback Russell Wilson having his passing day of his short NFL career throwing for just 103 yards. His completion percentage and yards passing have dropped over the course of the final month of the NFL season as well causing some Seahawks fans to grow concerned.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll doesn’t agree and think he is playing great.

“I think he’s doing great. I think he’s doing what we need to do in these games. We can always do better,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “We’re always looking for more and he is too and all that. But as long as our football team is playing well and we’re playing within the formula and we’re playing good defense, we’re running the football, we’re playing on teams, and we’re taking care of the ball and getting it, we’re going to have a really good chance to win and that’s what’s most important to us.”

Unfortunately for the Seahawks and Wilson, they’re playing a familiar opponent on Sunday.
