The Seahawks head to Pittsburgh this week for their preseason opener, a game that will represent an important piece in the evaluation process at several positions where the competition is on for starting jobs. The game also represents, for every play, the first chance since last season to experience true game action with tackling and full-speed hits.
“It’s the first chance for us to go live now,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said before the team left for the airport Thursday. “We understand that we go through camp and practice, that we get great tempo and speed, but it’s not the same thing when you finally crank it up and go. We have to make that next step, introduce our guys to full speed football, the young guys getting on an NFL field and realizing that it’s just football. There is a lot of stuff that we have to accomplish that has nothing to do with how we play. It’s getting through the process and all. Traveling is really important, teaching them how to travel. This West Coast to East Coast trip has been something that we have really taken a lot of consideration in how we do it and we have been successful at it. I think that there is a lot to understanding the rhythms and all of that, so we are going to practice it. That’s why we are leaving early, and we want to be right when the time comes.”
