Pete Carroll: ‘I’ve never seen this kind of chemistry’ between Russell Wilson, Shane Waldron

By Patrick Olde Loohuis

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had a lot of positive things to say about his team’s Week 1 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, but he had especially high praise for first-year offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.

“Really, the day goes to Shane,” Carroll said in his postgame press conference. “I’m really, really proud of what he was able to do because he went for it the whole time. We did it exactly how we’ve been practicing and how we’ve been preparing, and he handled it with such a cool overall mentality and all.”

Carroll commended the rapport between Waldron and quarterback Russell Wilson and expressed hope that they could continue excelling together throughout the rest of the season.

“He and Russ were just cooking,” Carroll said. “I’ve never seen this kind of chemistry be so obvious between a play-caller and a quarterback,” Carroll said. “I hope this is just the first step of a great march together.”

With Week 1 in the books, Seattle will return home to play the Tennessee Titans (0-1) next Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT.
