Here's what Harrison had to say about Carroll's No. 7 rating:

Yes, Seahawks fans, we realize Carroll won it all. So has every coach remaining -- save for Jim Harbaugh. So why is Carroll ranked beneath his rival? Because Seattle went 7-9 in each of Carroll's first two seasons with Seattle. He also trails Harbaugh in the head-to-head series, four games to three. However, if Carroll gets his club back to at least the NFC Championship Game, he might fly past Harbaugh and vie for the spot just below Belichick.
