Seahawks’ Pete Carroll compares Super Bowl to ‘an avalanche’


The Denver Broncos were blown out by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. The Seahawks just kept pouring it on and at one point lead 36-0 before the Broncos finally scored near the end of the third quarter. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll compared it to an avalanche.

“I think as we have seen in the past, sometimes games go, and sometimes it can be kind of like an avalanche,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “The scores start happening. Field position just tilts and everything goes your way. We were really ready. We were really ready for the opportunities. The first score, we had nothing to do with that one. [The safety] was just unfortunate for them on the snap and all. From that point on, we really seized the night. Whenever you play turnover football like that, it’s the formula that we try to live by. You get four turnovers and they get none; the game is going to go that way.”

It is like the opposite of the quicksand Keanu Reeves describes in the movie “The Replacements.”
