Pete Carroll Winningest Coach in Team History Countdown

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Yesterday's win tied Pete with Chuck Knox for second most coaching victories in team history with 80. Pete is 80-50-1 as the Hawks coach, only 6 wins behind Mike Holmgren (86-74). I think Pete can catch him this year, so I am creating this as an official countdown thread. 1 down, 6 to go!

    P.S. If anyone comes in here just to shit on the greatest coach in team history, go somewhere else. This is a celebration. There are plenty of places here for your sour attitudes to not ruin this.

    I like the proactive throwing down of the Gauntlet.

    My favorite non-playoff victory under Carroll was that late season regular Season game vs. the Bills in 2012....I remember being so giddy as my team of so many years was just killing fools left and right (second week in a row with 50 points scored, if memory serves). Just so much fun to watch....and a precursor of the greatness to come.

    I was at the 42-13 win over the 49ers a week later. My friend is a 49ers fan and had never been to an NFL game, so I took him. I'll never forget his scream, "SOMEBODY HIT HIM!!!" on this play:

    That was the game played in Toronto at the Skydome, 80 miles north of the border and Buffalo.
    I suspect Pete, Russell et al picked up a whole new entourage of Canadian fans that night. (sorry Buffalo, Canadians are still waiting for the Doug Flutie apology)

  • Good for Pete. If he gets it then it'll be well deserved, but as Seymour said, this is still gonna be a tough year for him and the 'Hawks. Six more wins, this year at least, may be a tall order but not impossible.

    PREACH IT BROTHER!!!

    Pete is my favorite coach in our franchise's history. Loved Knox, Loved Holmgren, but Pete's positivity and winning gets my vote. He's going to break that record this season.

  • One day Pete will leave, and if this team is very lucky they will find a good coach and won’t then fade into obscurity after a year or two.

    And some day some of those fans who are negative now will realize how good they had it while Pete was here and will wax poetic about the good old days.

    Such is often the way of things with us humans.

    You think we are only 50-50 to get 7 wins? Given Pete has lead his teams to 7 or more wins every season since he's been here, with worse rosters than this one to boot, I think you are being overly pessimistic. I think we are 50/50 to get 9 wins, but 7 should be more like 80/20.

    Last I checked, 6+2=8 :idea:
    We have 2 wins and need 6 more according to the OP.

    Why do you always have exaggerate in literally every single post you make? See how silly that sounds? First thread I checked...no Pete comments. Check for yourself. If you have to tell lies to make your point you lose the point.

    It's called an opinion, and this is suppose to be a discussion about the thread title. What a boring world we'd be if we all shared the same exact view. They should make that a twilight zone episode......wait. :roll:

    Yeah, I just heard that. :229031_shrug:

    Perhaps they're including playoff wins, which I think Pete is leading all Seahawks coaches.

    So Maulbert's number is reg season only, I guess?

    I know that Pete has won at least one game in the post season almost every season we went.

  • Yes. Regular season Pete has five to go. But he also has about 22 or so fewer regular season losses than Mike despite the 7-9 records the first two years.

    They don't count playoff wins with regular season wins, usually. Pete passed both Holmgren and Knox in playoff wins (alone or combined) years ago. Pete is 9-5 in the postseason with us, Holmgren was 4-6, Knox was 3-4.

  • Not only is Pete soon going to be the winningest Seahawks head coach in the regular season, he'll do it with the best winning percentage, and by far the most playoff wins. And I wouldn't venture he's anywhere close to quitting.

    Pete is 86-53-1 in the regular season as Seahawks head coach after today (.618).

    Holmgren’s regular season record with Seattle was 86-74-0 (.541).

    Take away the 7-9 losing seasons during a complete team rebuild the first two years and Pete’s record is truly remarkable.

    Side note: The Hawks have won 51 straight when leading by four points or more at halftime.

    Holmgren is more reserved, for sure. I wonder if he’s an introvert by nature.

    Pete is an extremely social extrovert.
