Pete Carroll has proven over and over to be one of the best minds in the National Football League.
Some might think he’s outdated, and not giving Marshawn Lynch the ball at the one-yard line is a mistake that’ll haunt him until the end of time, but he’s a football mastermind nonetheless.
Carroll has caught multiple strays for his unorthodox ways more often than not, and some heavily criticized him for not ‘letting Russ cook’ when Russell Wilson was around.
Then, he silenced his critics by turning Geno Smith into a legit starting-caliber QB and making the playoffs despite being a rebuilding team.
That’s why Lynch — who played for the Seattle Seahawks from 2010-15 — claimed that he’s a great psychologist.
In a recent appearance on the ‘I Am Athlete’ podcast, LenDale White and Lynch opened up about how coach Carroll made them believe.

Brandon Marshall asked them whether he was a great coach or a great manipulator, and Lynch didn’t hesitate that he was actually both.
It takes a lot to handle a 53-man roster, especially considering the big egos and huge paychecks on some of those guys.
But Carroll has been in charge of the Seahawks since 2010, making two Super Bowl appearances and winning the Vince Lombardi trophy once.
He’s 71 years old already, and some think he should be on his way out, but all those years have made him a wise man, and sometimes it’s more about getting the players to buy in and not so much about the Xs and Os.
