Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson appeared on ESPN 710 Seattle this morning, talking with Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil.
Robinson talked about the players-only meeting Seattle’s veteran players called to discuss the team’s recent issues regarding the NFL’s performance enhancing drugs.
“We basically kind of got in there and started holding each other accountable for our actions,” Robinson said. “We have an opportunity to do something special, and again, we need all of our guys – all hands on deck.
“It’s kind of some of the problems you get when you have a really young team, but that’s no excuse. We have to make sure we’re all available for all 16 games.”
Robinson provided a simple answer when asked how the team goes about changing the growing perception nationally that the Seahawks are a team that plays outside the rules.
“Just win,” Robinson said. “Just go out there and take care of business, keep working hard. We know what we have in this building. We’re not sidetracked. We know what the goal is – to own the NFC West, and to host playoff games and see what where it goes from there.”
Robinson also addressed the perception that Seattle head coach Pete Carroll runs a loose ship, allowing his players too much freedom.
“Personally, I’ve been around other coaches, and I think he is a players’ coach,” Robinson said. “But he’s a players’ coach that pays much attention to detail. We’re very exact in this building. Everybody knows the opportunity we have in front of us. So we leave no stone unturned.”
Robinson discussed what the Seahawks are trying to accomplish during organized team activities over the next three weeks, setting the table for the beginning of training camp at the end of July.
