Always Compete: An Examination of Pete Carroll's Philosophy

I recently read Pete Carroll's Win Forever, for two reasons. First, I wanted a better understanding of his philosophy, partly to understand how this impacts the Seahawks. I was especially interested because I'd been hearing that Carroll had a unique, perhaps innovative, approach.

The commentary addresses some interesting aspects as to what the idea of "competition" even means; it certainly has different connotations in different circles. I also appreciated that the author brought up different coaching styles and players that have chips on their shoulders - some football players, believe it or not, think that football shouldn't be all fun and games, and will thrive under a drill sergeant coach more so than Carroll's fun loving style. This article was written in June, and now that the season is once more underway, the 4-3 record of the Seahawks shows that they might indeed need to remember that ALWAYS compete mantra; just because they won one Superbowl, doesn't mean they should let the fire and hunger to compete die out. 10-26-2014 6:18pm
