Pete Carroll talks about getting fired as head coach of the New York Jets and New England Patriots in the Aug. 2 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek and how that helped him develop his own coaching style. It eventually led him to return to coaching in the National Football League with the Seattle Seahawks.
Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck set rookie-quarterback records all season, exceeding expectations. Now they will get their first taste of the playoffs, with two of their teams going head-to-head in the opening round.
The Seattle Seahawks are favored by as many as 20 points in their Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, tying the record for the earliest the National Football League has had such an overwhelming pick.
