Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks: The Missing Dynasty

  Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks: The Missing Dynasty We know the situation. Seahawks down by four, 25 seconds left, 2nd & Goal. Russell Wilson drops back to pass. Interception. Patriots win. Seahawks lose. Cliff Avril’s comments this past week or so may have conjured up some painful memories for Seahawks players, coaches and fans alike. “I think guys started questioning him [Carroll] more, more so than actually following his lead if we would have won that Super Bowl.” Only eight teams in the history of the NFL have ever won two Super Bowls back to back. The Seahawks and Pete Carroll had a chance to join that exclusive club and blew it. A chance for the Seattle Seahawks to cement themselves as one of the most historic teams, and defences, in NFL history went up in smoke. The irony is that two plays before the Malcolm Butler interception, perhaps the greatest ever Super Bowl catch was made by Jermaine Kearse, yet it was mostly forgotten. After witnessing that impossible catch, myself and many others thought to ourselves this is it, the universe has decided to make this team the defining franchise of the decade. It’s meant to be. And with the Seahawks and Pete Carroll on the precipice of greatness, the football gods snatched it away. Kearse’s miracle catch which was lost in the NFL either, may become an appropriate analogy for Pete Carroll’s tenure as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks. It is said that one play can change a game or even a season.

Ryan Grigson is landing on his feet once again.

The front office executive is joining the Seahawks organization, according to Grigson's agent.

Grigson was most recently with the Browns, working as a senior personnel executive for one year. He was the general manager of the Colts from 2012-16, which is where he saw most of his success.

During his tenure with the Colts, Grigson drafted franchise cornerstones Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton in the 2012 draft. Following the 2012 season, Grigson was named Sporting News Executive of the Year.

Things started to take a turn shortly after, though. Grigson missed badly in the 2013 draft, selecting defensive end Bjoern Werner with the 24th overall pick. Then, at the start of the 2013 season, he traded away the Colts' 2014 first-round pick for running back Trent Richardson.

Grigson also had a long career in the NFL, dating back to 1995 when he was drafted in the sixth round by the Bengals and he also briefly spent time in the CFL.
