Pete Carroll fires back at Jets DC Gregg Williams over Adams comment

Seattle Seahawks

The unexpected Seahawks-Jets rivalry is continuing to heat up more and more each day.

Not even a full 24 hours have passed since Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams openly said that Jamal Adams ‘may get bored’ with the Seahawks defensive scheme.

On Thursday, Pete Carroll joined Dave Mahler and Dick Fain on 950 KJR Radio and responded back accordingly to Williams's comments.

Well let's just pass it back: we don't make as many mistakes as he does. Let's let him have a chance to come back. We might as well do something coast-to-coast -- that will be fun.

Seattle runs a Cover 3 scheme that has produced numerous All-Pro defensive backs and, of course, the ‘Legion of Boom' defense that dominated the NFL.

During the 2012-2015 seasons, the Seahawks led the league in scoring defense, allowing the fewest points scored each year for four years straight. The only other team to accomplish this was the Cleveland Browns of the 1950s.

Adams will assume the strong safety position, which is reminiscent of the same position that was once hailed by one Kim Chancellor

Adams, unlike like the hard-hitting style of Chancellor, will bring a more dynamic approach to the Seahawks defense.


Especially when it comes to his extraordinary pass-rushing ability. Adams has recorded 12 sacks in just three years as a pro.

Carroll obviously isn't going to reveal detailed plans for the Seahawks' new weapon, but he knows Adams has the capabilities to basically do everything and anything. 

Towards the end of the interview, Carroll's answer to what Adams brings to Seattle wouldn’t feel right if he didn’t first come with another friendly jab at Williams.

"Well, he's not bringing Gregg Williams with him, that's for sure," Carroll quipped. "C'mon Gregg, fire back. Let's have some fun with this."

It’s all fun and games for Carroll in all of this, but I know the Seahawks head coach is looking to have the last laugh at the end of the game in the Week 14 matchup.
