Some quick hits from Pete Carroll:

> The Seahawks practiced inside today.

> Asked what Russell Wilson’s success may mean for guys like Johnny Manziel, Carroll says, “I think Russell has turned some heads. It’s kind of silly to have it happen that way. You should get the right guys out there and let them play.”

> Carroll says quarterbacks coach Carl Smith has a gift of “finding the strength in people and amplify them and bring them to the front.” Carroll says he has had tremendous respect for Smith.

> Carroll says they received phone calls in the draft room after selecting Wilson and people were telling him they were going to take Wilson with the next pick. Carroll says John Schneider sweated through the second round, trying to wait longer to take Wilson. Carroll says there was “tremendous tension” right up to the moment they selected Wilson.

> Carroll on Macklemore’s Grammy success: “Really cool thing for our area.” We’re already into Media Day questions on Media Day eve.

> In general, Carroll says the halftime adjustments this year were them declaring what’s effective in the gameplan and getting back to it. “The commitment is what got us back on track,” Carroll said.

> Carroll says Percy Harvin is in “Phase Super Bowl,” practiced today and is ready to go.

> Carroll says the Broncos’ efficiency and precision with getting the ball out is what makes it so difficult to get to Peyton Manning.

> Carroll says when he recruited Derrick Coleman at USC, they wanted Coleman to play fullback at the time and he didn’t want to be a fullback.

  1. I think we’re all in “Phase Super Bowl!”

  2. thursday says:

    Oh yeah. I think he has a big game this time.

  3. Off topic.
    Small world:
    I was just on the phone with a DISH Network tech in Oklahoma because my dvr died. ( I lost the recordings of the NFC Champ game) The guy helping me was cool so as I thanked him I said “go hawks”. He said “actually I’m rooting for them too, a friend of mine plays for them”. I asked him who of course and he said “have you ever heard of a lineman named Bowie?”.
    Small world.

  4. Bowie who?

  5. (just kidding).

    Small world indeed.

  6. Michael Bowie!!!

  7. He said they were all jacked that he started that game.
    I told him we on the blog were pissed that he didn’t start the next one but I assured him the Bowie would stick with the Seahawks.

  8. I guess Coleman is pretty happy to play fullback now.

  9. seahawkNJ says:

    If Michael Bowie stares at it long enough, your dead DVR comes back to life.

  10. Southendzone says:

    Cool Bowie story! Bowie doesn’t need the Dish, he channels the incoming signal with his brain.

  11. Who’s joining me at Media Day tomorrow? The Seahawks are the second team up, at 12:45 PM ET.

  12. You’ll be joining Michael Bowie, he won’t be joining you.

  13. It’s GAME WEEK and I must admit…I am a tad bit excited about watching the Hawks play in Vegas! Yes, leaving Anchorage to watch the game at a Super Bowl Party in Vegas!

    I would love to see Harvin play like we know he is supposed to be playing. I want him involved in everything, but still keep our normal game plan of running the ball.

    The toughest choice I will have is who to bet on for MVP.
