A little midday reading while we wait for Pete Carroll’s afternoon press conference. Or, if you prefer, some midday listening in the form of Carroll’s interview on 710 ESPN Seattle this morning. One thing of note if you don’t have time to give it a listen, Carroll said DE Cliff Avril, who missed Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury, “has a great chance to be back” for Seattle’s big Week 2 showdown with San Francisco.
Danny O’Neil from 710 ESPN Seattle says Sunday’s win was important because Seattle showed it can win on the road without playing its best.
