I'm no Pete Carroll fan but I have to post this from his game last week regarding his poor decision to challenge a call. God knows Marvin has made his share of poor challenges but what would you give to hear him this contrite afterward?
If he had it to do over, Carroll would not have challenged the play in the third quarter against the Lions where he couldn’t win no matter what the ultimate call was.
“A total blunder,” Carroll said. “It was a blunder. I screwed it up.”
Carroll challenged whether Titus Young actually had caught a 9-yard pass from Matthew Stafford on a third-and-8 play. But it didn’t matter, because cornerback Brandon Browner had been called for defensive holding. So the Lions would get a first down even if the ruling on the field was reversed – which it wasn’t.
“It was a competitive moment that I really regret,” Carroll said.
When do you think we'll ever hear such comments from Marvin in a post game presser?
