Veteran SEarl Thomas was seen running down Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett after last week’s game lobbying for the team to go after him if they have the opportunity.
Carroll, who wasn’t thrilled about it, has responded to Thomas’ telling comments to Garrett, via ESPN’s Bradley Anderson.
Head Coach Pete Carroll called Earl Thomas’ “come get me” comment “unfortunate,” but otherwise didn’t express much concern about what his All-Pro free safety did after the team’s win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Apparently, Thomas’ comments to the Cowboys head coach were misinterpreted if you ask the 28-year-old. Carroll claims he spoke with Thomas about what the world saw so clearly on television and he wouldn’t do it again as he felt for Seahawks fans, via Anderson. “He was really concerned about our fans. That was his first [thought], ‘Geez, I don’t want to make them think that I don’t love being here’ and all that. So he said what he could say to try to clear it up and all that.” #GoHawks
I had the opportunity to have a trip down memory lane with my family today I had tears laughs and frustration with them and him. I’m so happy to have been apart of this to pave the way for future generations #foreverahawk#gohawks#srhs
