No judgment about the practice, but I think it’s safe to say that Pete Carroll is one of the more likely head coaches in the league to unmercifully run up the score on an opponent. He’s just an excitable sociopath like that. And no week would be better for a unconscionable beating like this one, with Greg Schiano’s SCHIANO MEN coming to Seattle to accept their drubbing.
I know the Seahawks struggled mightily last Monday to beat the Rams, but that was on the road, where Seattle is a much more vulnerable team compared to when they’re at CenturyLink Field.
And just so you know that it’s not just Schiano antagonizing his team that makes the Buccaneers bad. It’s more fundamental than that. Read this breakdown and see how they’re just schematically a dumb, dumb team.
Your late game slate, as rated by KSK’s not-at-all subjective, rigorously scientificated five-star system:
Philadelphia at Oakland **
Tampa Bay at Seattle ***** (only if Seattle wins by at least 40, otherwise *)
Baltimore at Cleveland **
Pittsburgh at New England **
