Pete Carroll downplays Earl Thomas’ ‘come get me’ remark
Earl Thomas didn’t think he did anything wrong. Pete Carroll doesn’t believe it’s a big deal either.
When Carroll got word that Thomas told Cowboys coach Jason Garrett to come get him in free agency following Seattle’s 21-12 win at AT&T Stadium on Sunday, he knew things would get blown out of proportion.

I would say he’s a work in progress. There’s no doubt that our expectations and his expectations are a little bit higher than we’ve seen so far, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said on the eve of the Winter Classic against the Buffalo Sabres.
In his most ominous comments about the futures of strong safety Kam Chancellor and defensive end Cliff Avril, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that both players are going to have a hard time playing football again because of their neck injuries.
The jury’s not out on that; they’re going to decide that themselves, but it’s going to be very difficult for those guys to come back and play again, Carroll said in his weekly radio show on 710 ESPN Seattle.
Carroll described Chancellor’s and Avril’s situations in more vague terms when he met with the media at large later in the day.
Honestly I really can’t, he said when asked to elaborate on Chancellor and Avril. I shouldn’t say any more than we don’t know yet. I don’t know. I don’t know what to tell you there. Both those guys are marvelous people and competitors and all of that. We’d love to see them through the rest of their career. I don’t know what’s going to happen there.
