‘Worst Call in NFL History’ Video is Evidence to Support my Seething Pete Carroll Hatred
“You gotta love Pete Carroll”…No I do not. I couldn’t stand him when he turned my 1996 AFC Champion New England Patriots into a disorganized and mediocre 5-11 team. I liked him even less when his USC Trojans won/shared the 2004 BCS Championship, a title that was stripped from the school in 2011 due to recruiting violations. But by that time Pete had already moved on to Seattle and is all but unscathed.
He is really good at being unscathed. Right before the most crucial play of the NFC Championship game, his field goal unit was wandering aimlessly between the sideline and the line of scrimmage. Pete looked just as confused as they were, chewing gum and spinning in circles. Five seconds later, TOUCHDOWN SEAHAWKS! And there goes Pete fist pumping and dancing! It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so infuriating.
If you need any more evidence as to why he drives me into enraged fits, check out his reaction to the “Fail Mary”.. aptly titled “Worst Call in NFL History”
