Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll Full of Optimism Entering the Bye Week

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is full of optimism entering the bye week, his team now 3-1 and coming off consecutive impressive victories.

But it was a declaration about what this Seahawks team could become that was surprising even for the always-positive head coach.

“We just have to go out there and keep doing it, one day at a time, one week at a time,” Carroll said Monday.

The Seahawks arrived at the bye following a 27-17 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, a game that Seattle dominated more than the final score indicated. And now Seattle gets two weeks to get a number of its key players healthy. Wilson will continue to get rehab on his sprained left knee and sprained right ankle during the bye week, and is expected to have more of his mobility back.

The timing of the bye should also help Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jarran Reed and Nick Vannett get healthier or be able to play when Atlanta visits Seattle on Oct. 16.
